Real people live on these pages that the reader cares about proving Robyn Carr is always at the top of her game." ONE WISH finds local florist Grace Dillon lamenting her all-work-and-no-play life.

But when Grace's former life as a world champion figure skater catches up with her, things get complicated. Faced with losing Grace, Troy realizes she's more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for-and maybe they can find real love along the way. Read an excerpt on www.robyncarr.com and pre-order today!

Order now if your favorite kind of summer read is a big, sizzling, gothic tale that keeps you in suspense until the very last page, and it will show up in June, when the reading and the living is easy.

Justine Davis
Justine is delighted to announce the arrival of a project that has been twenty years in the making: "A long time ago, I had my first 'white heat' writing experience. A book that came so fast and complete that I could barely keep up. It was published almost untouched, and so well received that I did a sequel. By contrast, that book was a hair-tearing, what-made-me-think-I-could-redeem-this-woman exercise in frustration, but to this day is one of the books I'm most proud of. But after LORD OF THE STORM and SKYPIRATE, I still wasn't quite done with this world I'd created. Unfortunately, my publisher was done with futuristics - apparently I was a bit ahead of the curve - so I was left with a returned synopsis and the sad feeling the third book would never be published. But I never forgot that untold story, and to my great gratification, neither did readers. Over all those years, they wrote, they asked, some even begged for that story. And so, REBEL PRINCE is dedicated to the only possible choice: the readers who simply wouldn't let it die." Check Justine's blog for the in depth story of how these beloved books came to be!

A. S. Fenichel
ASCENSION REVIEW (4.0 out of 5 stars) - A must read kind of book! This was my first book by A.S. Finichel and I definitely will be following this series. It was hot and steamy and had one kick ass heroine! ASCENSION, The Demon Hunters #1 - When demons threaten London, Lady Belinda answers the call. Lord Gabriel Thurston returns home from war to find his fiancée is not the sweet young girl he left behind. She's grown into a mysterious woman who guards her dark secrets well. When he sees her sneaking away from a ball, he's convinced it's for a lover's rendezvous. Following her to London's slums, Gabriel watches in horror as his fiancée ruthlessly slays a man. Lady Belinda Carlisle's only concern was her dress for the next ball-until demons nearly killed her and changed everything. A lady by day, and a demon hunter by night, she knows where her duty lies. Ending her betrothal is the best way to protect Gabriel from death by a demon's hand. Gabriel soon realizes, like him, Belinda has been fighting for her country. He joins in the fight, determined to show her that their love can endure, stronger than ever.

Shirley Hailstock
I have a plethora of books to tell you about this month. We finally arrived at the release of SUMMER ON KENDALL FARM. I've spoken about it before. The story takes place on a horse farm. I have several books that involve horses. They are a noble beast and I love watching them run. They don't necessarily have to race. Just running around a paddock or being free in the wild is like watching one of the wonders of the world. HIS 1-800 WIFE is a February release. This is the story of Catherine Carson, who needs a husband...temporarily. Devising a plan to keep her sister and mother's attempts to get her married at bay, she installs a phone to find the perfect man -- no the imperfect man. One she can marry and happily divorce in six months. And to warm your February nights, take a look at I DO! a Valentine's Day novella. No one ever wins these contests -- or so thought Serena Coleman. After being engaged for way too many years, she and her long-absent fiancé win a contest for an all-expense paid wedding and honeymoon sponsored by the Rainbow Room. And now that she and Peter Lawrence are ready to set the date, she's reluctant to change the status quo. Will their relationship have rainbows or just rain? Until next time, keep reading.

Carolyn Haines
New in trade paper - THE SEEKER by R.B. Chesterton (Feb. 15) Aine Cahill believes education can save her from the bloody history-and curse-of her family. Dreams, visions of the dead, such things retreat from the educated mind. To that end, Aine moves to the Walden Pond area for a winter sabbatical to pursue her dissertation on naturalist, Henry David Thoreau. Aine has a journal penned by her ancestor, Bonnie Cahill, who claims that she was Thoreau's lover during his tenure at Walden Pond. Bonnie also claims she and Thoreau were involved in spiritualism-calling up the dead. If Aine can prove Bonnie's claims, she will skyrocket to fame. What Aine finds at Walden Pond is far different. She is stalked by a young girl who leaves strange and disturbing gifts for her. She meets a park ranger with a twisted past that may include murder of a child. And the blood curse of the Cahills returns with a vengeance. To survive, Aine must find answers. NYT Review for THE DARKLING - A good storyteller - and R. B. Chesterton is quite a good storyteller - knows to lower her voice when she's talking about ghosts.

Jennifer Hayward
Hi all! Excited to bring you a free online read called SOCIETY WEDDING SECRETS to launch Harlequin Presents' Society Weddings series. This 8 part series (a new chapter each week) introduces you to the Columbia Four, a quartet of the world's sexiest bachelors as they're forced to say ‘I Do'. Here's a taste: Château des Lacs, near Paris – 1 week until 'I Do'. My to-do list for planning this society wedding was supposed to be simple: 1. Arrange some tastefully naughty pre-wedding activities for the bridal party. 2. Get the bride and groom down the aisle so they can get started on their happily ever after. But now the groomsmen-aka five of the world's most outrageous playboys-are running wild, the groom is running scared and the bride is running me ragged! That's bad enough but with Tate Langfield (yes, that Tate Langfield; he of The Kiss That Cannot Be Forgotten) distracting me at every turn, if I don't take drastic action this wedding - not to mention my career – will end in disaster! Clearly I need to relax. What could be more…tension-relieving…than a night of unbridled passion with the gorgeous Tate? It could be our little secret, dear diary... Read Chapter One

Unwillingly swept into Nick's problems, Samantha finds herself on a wild ride that leds them in to passion and terrible danger. This one's very fast paced, but it has a soft heart. Reviewers are abuzz with comments like, "delivers an awesome punch of suspense and romance." -Books&Benches.

But she has no idea how close to home her fears still are. Two college girls have gone missing in the area, and FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak is called to work on the case. When his inquiry unexpectedly leads him to Faith, he finds a beautiful and brave woman he can't help but fall for. Soon they'll discover that this seemingly simple investigation is anything but.

Jessica Scott
TWO NEW Books in TWO New Series!! HOMEFRONT is the first novel in the new Homefront Series. First Sergeant Gale Sorren waited a war and half a lifetime for a chance to get stationed near the ex-wife who left him years ago. When he finally musters the courage to see her, the life he imagined she was living was nothing close to the reality. It's available for preorder from iBooks. And an entirely new series kicks off with BEFORE I FALL. Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. Noah Warren doesn't know how to be a student. All he knows is war. A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both. Also available for preorder on iBooks. Both books are scheduled to be out on 24 February.

Sandra Worth
The ominous, once neglected Wars of the Roses that inspired Game of Thrones has moved center stage in England. The dark figure at its heart - King Richard III, who lay in a parking lot for five centuries - is being buried in March. With his re-internment comes a re-examination of the man himself. We know now that he wasn't the ghastly hunchback the Tudors claimed, casting doubt on all we've been told. So as he's being reburied, he is also being reborn. Sandra Worth's ROSE OF YORK series of novels unfolds Richard III's story. Was he a monster who poisoned his wife to have incest with his niece and murdered his little nephews, the princes in the Tower, for the throne? PALE ROSE OF ENGLAND, this month's prize, recounts the chilling tale of the handsome young man thought to be the true prince who challenged Henry VII for his throne, and of his beautiful wife, the Scottish princess Lady Catherine Gordon, thrust into the darkness of a Tudor court, watched lustfully, and malevolently, by its first Tudor king. Sandra invites you to learn more about her award-winning books and to enter her contest for a copy of Lady Catherine's story by visiting www.sandraworth.com.
