some new releases from the Presents line.

heads turn her way.

About CHANTELLE SHAW
Chantelle grew up without a TV or a computer. At an early age she learned the
value of reading. She entertained herself with books, to a point her friends
wouldn’t have a book in sight when she would visit. Chantelle feel in love with
Harlequin Mills & Boon romances. She now loves to write about strong, alpha
heroes and feisty, independent heroines who find they can’t fight the blazing
attraction between them.

We are now towards the end of November. Most of us have already started our
Christmas shopping. Most of my family know I love to receive books as gifts and
I really love to give books as gifts, espeically to children and teenagers.
Reading really is a magical gift, you can escape to any part of the world, back
to 1864, read about tragedy and romances and learn valuable lessons.
But more than that I love to read holiday stories. They are my favorite, even
in July. In my reading experience Harlequin Superromance offers the best
Christmas love stories.
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
by Sarah Mayberry
Hannahn Napier has just moved into the neighborhood and Joe Lawson is crushing
on her badly. As a single dad, he knows he shouldn’t be thinking of women. He
should focus on his kids. But the way Hannah connects with his kids keeps him
from thinking of anything but her.
Not only are Joe’s kids crushed, when they learn Hannah doesn’t plan to stay in
Melbourne, he is as well. But Joe promises he won’t stand between her and her
dreams. The holidays don’t look as bright as they once did with Hannah leaving.
But it is the season of miracles…
About SARAH MAYBERRY
Sarah picked up a love of romance novels from both her grandmothers, and has
submitted manuscripts to Harlequin many times over the years. She credits the
invaluable story structuring experience she learned on Neighbours as the key to
her eventual success — along with the patience of her fantastic editor, Wanda.
Sarah is revoltingly happy with her partner of twelve years, Chris, who is a
talented scriptwriter. Not only does he offer fantastic advice and solutions to
writing problems, but he’s also handsome, funny and sexy. When she’s not
gushing over him, she loves to read romance and fantasy novels, go to the
movies, sew and cook for her friends. She has also become a recent convert to
Pilates, which she knows she should do more often.
Not only do I love holiday stories, but I love them best when they involve
pregnancies and babies.
UNEXPECTED GIFTS by Holly Jacobs
Teacher Eli Cartwright has it all figured out—the career, the reliable
boyfriend and the next few dependable decades. Yet life has quite a sense of
humor, it seems, since her perfectly ordered existence has been completely
upended because Eli is counseling pregnant teens—but now with an unplanned
pregnancy of her own!
Suddenly Eli is single, terrified…and exuberant. And her colleague, Zac Keller,
has never been more attracted to her. But can he convince Eli that life
sometimes offers more than one unexpected gift at a time?
About HOLLY JACOBS
From that love of reading I seemed to naturally progress to writing. I've toyed
with a little of everything, but I must confess, though I "found" romance a
little later in life, I fell head over heels for the genre. When I began
writing, it seemed like the right place for me to be.
