Reader App Help
The Mills & Boon reader app is no longer in use, so we are advising our readers to use the Bluefire Reader App, which we believe will offer a better eBook reading experience.
What does this mean for you?
If you use our Mills & Boon Reader app, you will need to swap over to using the Bluefire Reader app. This also means moving over your eBooks. This guide will help you do these things. We have also created a simple, helpful video to help you navigate this process.
Step 1: Find Your Adobe ID details
Your Adobe ID is required to authorise your eBooks in the new reader. You need to login to your new reader with the same Adobe ID used for the Mills and Boon reader. It’s best to check this before you start the process.
- Open the Mills and Boon reader app on your mobile or tablet.
- Click the info icon (“i”) on the top menu to see your Adobe ID listed in the section Adobe eBooks are enabled.
- Take a note of the Adobe ID. You will need this ID and the password for it in the new reader. (Don’t know the password? Click here)
Step 2: Install the Bluefire Reader
You need to install the Bluefire app before you can transfer eBooks to it and authorise it with the same Adobe ID so you can open these books.
- Apple devices: Go to the Bluefire reader on iTunes app store. Android: Go to the Bluefire reader on the Google play appstore
- Open the Bluefire reader app on your mobile or tablet.
- Click the info icon (“i”) on the top menu.
- Click ‘Authorise’ in the section ‘Enable Adobe eBooks’
- Enter your Adobe ID and Password (Don’t know the password? Click here)
Step 3: Download your eBooks
- If you have a small number of eBooks to transfer, downloading them from the Mills and Boon web site is the easiest way.
- Go to the Mills & Boon website in any web browser on your mobile or tablet (https://www.millsandboon.co.uk).
- Login to your account using the icon in the top right hand corner of the site.
- Click ‘Your eBooks’.
- Click ‘Download’ next to each eBook you wish to move to the new reader.
- When prompted click ‘Open in Bluefire Reader’ or ‘More’ and select ‘Import with Bluefire Reader’.
- The eBook will be added to the library of the Bluefire Reader.
- Repeat steps 3-4 for each eBook you wish to move.
- If you have a large number of books to transfer, moving them between the file storage for each app on the device is the easiest way. This requires a Mac or PC synced to the device.
