Q. How do I buy and read my first eBook?
Before you buy your first eBook, please ensure that you have downloaded the right software on to your device. eBooks from the Mills & Boon website are DRM Wrapped, which means they cannot be transferred between devices unless you create an account with Adobe Digital Editions. Please note: eBooks from the Mills & Boon website cannot be read on Kindle.
So to begin you will need an account with Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) which you can set up on the Adobe website. Once you have created an account this will enable you to save your eBooks across multiple devices (ie: an iPhone and an iPad) using one account. If you do not set up an account and download an eBook to a device you will only be able to read that eBook on that device as it will be locked to it.
If you are downloading your book on to a computer, you will need to have set up your Digital Editions account (on the Adobe website) and download the desktop version of Adobe Digital Editions. Please ensure that the email address used for your Adobe ID matches that of your millsandboon.co.uk account. You must do this before downloading your first eBook, or you will not be able to access the file in Digital Editions.
If you are using an iOS or Android device then once you have created an Digital Editions account you will then need to download a compatible eReader. We advise either Bluefire reader (although there is a charge) or Pocketbook for iOS and Aldiko for Android. Both Pocketbook and Aldiko are free to download.
Once you have done this, simply find an eBook you’d like to read, pop it in your shopping bag and you’ll be prompted to download it after the checkout.
