The Secrets to My Success
by Melinda Curtis

This clean holiday romance kicks off the small town Harlequin Heartwarming series: The Mountain Monroes.

She turned him down.

Five years ago, Philadelphia attorney Daniel Cross was stuck in an elevator with Samantha Parker and fell in love. Five days after their rescue, Daniel asked Sam to marry him.

Sometimes a girl has to choose. And sometimes she can’t choose love.

Five years ago, reporter Samantha Parker was taking on the burden of caring for her sister, who’d been in a horrific car accident. She needed to move to New York to care for her and was in desperate need of a once-in-a-lifetime scoop to land a job once she arrived. She didn’t plan on asking Daniel’s wealthy, reclusive client Harlan Monroe for an interview. She didn’t plan on falling for Daniel either.

Can they learn to love again?

Now Harlan Monroe is dying and his lawyers are wrapping up all his loose ends. Sam’s editor smells a story. But in order to chase that lead down, Sam will need to rely on the initial secret to her success — Daniel.



Melinda Curtis' Bio

Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. Between writing sweet romance for Harlequin and indie-pubbed sweet romantic comedy, Melinda finds time to relax with her husband over home remodeling projects. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than jet-setting on a potty.
