Harlequin is hosting another writing competition. I (Heart) Harlequin Presents
Seduction Contest will be open until November 2, 2009. In honor of
this competition I will be dedicating one column every month to Presents
authors and their books.
Harlequin Presents are books about women who are looking for treasures of the
world, but to the men-his woman is the true treasure.
THE PRINCE'S CAPTIVE
WIFE by MARION
Nine years ago Prince Andreas Karedes returned to his island kingdom of Aristo
in the Mediterranean Sea to take up his regal duties, not knowing that Holly,
the sweet Australian girl with whom he'd briefly fallen in love, had become
Tragically, Holly lost their baby. She remained on her parents' farm to be near
her tiny son's final resting place, wishing Andreas would return!
A royal scandal is about to break: a dirt-digging journalist has discovered
Holly's secret! Andreas's childhood sweetheart must come and face him. Passion
runs high as Andreas issues an ultimatum—to avoid disgrace, Holly must become
A BIT ABOUT MARION LENNOX
Marion's now written over 50 romance novels. She wrote under the pseudonym Trisha David to separate
her Tender Romance novels from her Medical Romance books, so if you're looking
for older books, try Trisha.
THE BILLIONAIRE'S BRIDE OF
Though he's superrich and supereligible, marriage hasn't been on Russell
McClain's agenda. Instead the handsome Sydney tycoon is focused on personal
revenge—and Nicole Power, his sworn enemy's daughter, is central to his plan.
She will pay for her fraudster father's sins. Russell will ruthlessly seduce
her, bed her and discard her….
But when Russell's desire for Nicole becomes very real and very strong, one
night is not enough. However, making Nicole his willing wife might just satisfy
his need for vengeance….
A BIT ABOUT MIRANDA LEE
Not long into her writing career, Miranda committed herself to writing a six-
book series entitled, The Hearts of Fire, with a deadline of just nine
short months. Bravely, her husband left his executive position to stay home and
support Miranda’s writing career. He learned to cook and to clean, two
invaluable household skills.
THE MARCOLINI BLACKMAIL
MARRIAGE by MELANIE
No one asks a Marcolini for a divorce. Especially a gold digger who could walk
away with the family's fortune! Antonio Marcolini will make Claire pay. And he
has got the perfect plan for vengeance—he'll demand she spend the next three
months living with him as his reconciled wife, and nothing will stop him from
getting what he wants!
But Claire is innocent. Can she prove it before her husband blackmails her back
into marriage…and the marriage bed?
A BIT ABOUT MELANIE
As well as writing full-time, Melanie is also a keen athlete. She enjoys long-
distance running and is a nationally ranked top-10 master's swimmer in
Australia, holding several individual state records. She learned to swim as an
adult, so for anyone out there who thinks they can't do something—you can! Her
motto is "Don't say I can't; say I CAN TRY."
THE VIRGIN SECRETARY'S
IMPOSSIBLE BOSS by CAROLE MORTIMER
Linus Harrison's masculinity is a little too much for his sensible,
bespectacled assistant, Andrea. He makes her heart beat like crazy! And the
last thing Andi expects is to have to spend a weekend alone with her wild,
Billionaire Linus loves a challenge and relishes his chance to undo Miss Prim
and Proper's buttoned-up exterior. It only takes one snowbound Scottish night
to ignite the flames of the devilishly handsome businessman's desire. With
sparks flying, how can Andi resist?
A BIT ABOUT CAROLE
She first began writing for Mills & Boon in 1978, and has now had more than
one-hundred and forty books published—but still enjoys entering the lives of
each and every one of her heroes and heroines!
And that’s just a sneak of what Harlequin Presents has in store for us this
month. Be sure to check out their website for more releases.
Good luck to those of you entering Harlequin’s Seduction Contest.
