First Look: Grace Burrowes’s The Traitor (August 5, 2014)

Grace Burrowes
The Traitor
Sourcebooks Casablanca / August 5, 2014 / $7.99 print & digital

The past will overtake him...

Abandoned in France since boyhood, despite being heir to an English barony, Sebastian St. Clair makes impossible choices to survive a tour of duty in the French Army. He returns to England hoping for the peaceful life of a country gentleman, though old enemies insist on challenging him on the field of honor, one after another.

But this time, he will not fight alone...

Millicent Danforth desperately needs her position as companion to the Traitor Baron's aunt, but grieves to learn that Sebastian must continually fight a war long over. As Sebastian and Milly explore their growing passion, they uncover a plot that will cost Sebastian his life and his honor, unless he does battle once more-this time in the name of love.

I tend to think of Grace Burrowes as one of the sunniest of writers, but she actually goes to some pretty dark places in her books. After all, her assorted heroes and heroines have survived penury to various degrees, bereavement, childbirth out of wedlock (and the attendant social consequences), abusive childhoods and abusive marriages, post-traumatic stress, physical disability, and the crushing weight of parental expectations. That everything usually turns out just fine in the end proves that her books are surely optimistic, if not exactly a non-stop laugh riot.

First Look: Catherine Mann’s Shelter Me (August 5, 2014)

Shelter Me by Catherine MannCatherine Mann
Shelter Me
Berkley / August 5, 2014 / $7.99 print & digital

Nestled in the sunny fields of Tennessee lies the McDaniel family’s Second Chance Ranch Animal Rescue. Two new arrivals are on their way, but only one is the four-legged kind.

Staff Sergeant Mike Kowalski wants only one thing after he gets home from Iraq: to sleep in a king-sized bed with clean sheets. But first, he has to hand off his fallen commander’s dog, Trooper, to his family without handing off his heart to Sierra….

Sierra McDaniel needs a break. Her family life is crazy, and when she’s not mucking out kennels, she’s slogging through grad school. Sierra certainly doesn’t want another dog, especially one that reminds her of her father. And she definitely doesn’t want to see Mike with that charming smile of his….

But Trooper has a mission of his own. Before too long Mike is moving to the ranch to lend a hand—and hoping for his own second chance with Sierra.

Catherine Mann’s Shelter Me is the start of a new series featuring Second Chance Ranch, a local animal rescue run by Lacey McDaniel. Lacey is the ultimate military wife, now widow, and her family has been irrevocably shaped by the military, and the loss of her military husband. Her son Michael, a teenager, is going farther and farther into a dark place, while her daughter Sierra is a graduate student who finds herself more and more involved with her mother’s animal rescue. Lacey's father-in-law is a veteran with intensifying Alzheimer’s. Lacey takes in animal after animal after animal in an attempt to save something in her life, all the while fighting insomnia and a dangerous tendency to drink too much to numb the pain.

Power Play by Mallery Malone

Seduction. Surrender. Satisfaction. When it comes to a woman he wants, these three words are his one and only mission.

MMA fighter, Raphael Jerroult has always had to fight for what he wants—both in and out of the ring.

Except when it comes to women. They fall at his feet, eager for the kind of pleasure only he can give…again and again.

Enter Macy Lovelace, a red-headed beauty with curves that go on for days. A woman who is different from any he has ever encountered.

She slipped through his fingers once. But now he’s going to take her, seduce her, and satisfy her until she gives him nothing less than her complete surrender…

Get a sneak peek of Mallery Malone's Power Play (available August 5, 2014) with an exclusive excerpt of Chapter 1.

Chapter 1

Raphael Jerroult needed to get laid, and his choices were limited. One didn’t go hunting for a temporary fuck-buddy among friends and business partners.

Taking a sip of his whiskey sour, he stood at the edge of the ballroom watching as one of his best friends and business partners, former boxer and current billionaire Sebastian Delacroix, slow-danced with Renata Giordano, the love of his life and boxing’s reigning women’s welterweight champion. Though this was officially an engagement party with a formal wedding to follow in the fall at the requests of both their mothers, Raphael had been with them in Vegas the month before when they’d married the day after Renata won her title. Looking at them now and knowing how they threw off sparks whenever they were in the room together, Raphael understood and agreed with why Sebastian hadn’t waited. They were a stunning couple, blissfully oblivious to anything and everything else around them.

Get Out Your Handkerchiefs: Reviewing the Black Moment from Balogh, Howard, Phillips, and More!

Cry No More by Linda HowardAh, despair! We all love a funny romance with rakish pirates, but every now and then we want an author to rip out our heart and stomp all over it with pointy little stilettos.

When you read any other genre, the despair, the “black moment,” can be beyond painful. In romance, it can be cathartic because the reader knows when that forbidden box is opened and death, destruction, disease and despair fly out, at the end there’s a small fluttering instance of hope. It’s hope of a HEA, or at least a Happy For Now, which keeps us turning pages even as the tears roll down our faces.

The problem with discussing our favorite angsty novels is sometimes—usually—the despair moment is linked to a betrayal, or a disaster, or a Huge Reveal that would be a spoiler. I’ll discuss the black moments when I can without giving too much away, but if I just say, “Read this for a good weepfest!” you’ll have to trust me.

Linda Howard’s Cry No More begins with despair. A child is ripped from its mother’s arms and she spends the rest of the book trying to regain her lost son. This may be the ultimate despair moment. You can survive betrayal, you can survive the loss of your one true love, but can anyone survive not knowing her child’s fate? You will need your tissues. There is an amazing love story in this book, and it hits a lot of readers’ keeper lists for good reason. Even if you’ve had some less than positive experiences with this author’s novels, you’ll want to read Cry No More to experience despair.

Okay, I admit it. …I didn’t do it.

Yet.

This is normal, right? I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…right?

It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.

The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right—do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right Now?
Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?

I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.

Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious.

I am constantly on the search for funny New Adult. I’ve found it in books by Cora Carmack and Under Locke by Mariana Zapata, and now I can add Radhika Sanghani’s Virgin to the list. Imagine a younger Heather Wells of Size Twelve Is Not Fat or Bridget Jones, or an older Georgia Nicholson from Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging and you’ll have Ellie Kolstakis: V-I-R-G-I-N.

The “I Won’t Promise I’ll Ever Be Perfect” Scene from Skye Jordan’s Ricochet

Ricochet by Skye JordanRachel and Ryker’s firecracker chemistry is the basis for the romance in Ricochet by Skye Jordan. Ryker, a bomb specialist stationed in Afghanistan, needs to have direction and a purpose. He’s currently back in the States for a month at the demand of his CO, who required that Ryker return in the aftermath of a disastrous mission that had horrific results. This return is unwanted, though, and he soon joins up with the Renegades, a stuntman team, as their bombing specialist in order to keep himself focused on a purpose.

Flashbacks to Afghanistan reveal the source of Ryker’s PTSD, which is poignant and heartbreaking. Jordan captures raw, vulnerable moments from this typically stoic alpha-male in which he is confused, upset and battling an invisible enemy. Ryker’s mind can flip at any moment, and sometimes not even Rachel can talk him back.

Just a bad memory. You’re safe. Everyone’s safe.”

Of Ryker’s five-man EOD unit, only one survived the bombing. This flashback gives us vivid details regarding the catastrophe.

[And an idea of the comforting that will happen later...?]

Outlander’s “Just a Bodice-Ripper”? Really, Vanity Fair?!

Jamie and Claire in Starz's OutlanderEarlier this week, Vanity Faira posted an article with the headline “Does the New Outlander Series Have What It Takes to Be More than Just a Bodice-Ripper?b

In the piece itself, journalist Joanna Robinson says that no, it does not, and writes that “in order to become a true hit, Outlander, a steamy, time-traveling romp through Scotland, is going to have to find a way to appeal to more than just your dear old mum. In other words, it can’t just be Fifty Shades of Plaid.”

Annoyed? You're not alone.

The article goes on to mention that the most recent installment of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander book series, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Let's think about that discrepancy for a moment.

Ultimate Sins: Exclusive Excerpt

Three men, bound by blood, will stop at nothing to protect the women who have stolen their hearts and who they have claimed as their own—no matter what the price.

A FORBIDDEN LOVE

Ex-Marine Crowe Callahan has only had one obsession in life: Amelia Sorenson. She is the only one who has ever gotten under his skin. However, she is also the daughter of his family’s sworn enemy: a man who has sought to destroy the Callahans for generations in order to further his own nefarious agenda.

A DANGEROUS FATE

When Amelia put herself on Crowe’s side and in Crowe’s bed, she became her father’s enemy as well. When Wayne Sorenson escapes capture, both Amelia and Crowe know it is only a matter of time before he resurfaces to exact his revenge. Now Crowe will claim Amelia in order to bait a killer and end things once and for all. But can he protect the woman he can’t seem to live without from one of the deadliest enemies he has ever known? And will he survive if he can’t?

Chapter 2

By God, he was going to kill her.

He should have killed her when he had the chance. Before she had done this to him.

Before Amelia had betrayed him.

Wayne Sorenson leaned forward, his arms braced against his stomach as panic rushed through his system and threatened to send him into a furious rage.

All his dreams were shattered.

Lifetimes, generations of searching, and he had lost it all.

What Couple Shouldn’t Have Been Together?

Yesterday we were discussing the couples with the most chemistry, and then this article from Entertainment Weekly popped up—“I'm Still Not Over...House and Cuddy's Terrible Relationship.”

There have been some couples, including House and Cuddy and Thor and Jane, whose characters have suffered when they became paired, or their chemistry was non-existent.

What couple, in books, movies, or TV, should never have gotten together?

First Look: Shannon Stacey’s Falling for Max (July 29, 2014)

Falling for Max by Shannon StaceyShannon Stacey
Falling for Max
Carina / July 29, 2014 / $4.99, digital / $7.99, print

Max Crawford has reached the point in life where he's starting to think about settling down. Unfortunately, he's always been a little awkward when it comes to social interactions, and working from home doesn't help. He spends so much time alone, painting beautiful, historically accurate model trains that half of Whitford has begun to joke that he may be a serial killer. Not exactly prime husband material.

Tori Burns has found happiness in Maine, thanks in large part to her shifts at the Trailside Diner. She likes the work, and she loves the local gossip. When shy, geeky Max Crawford becomes a regular, she's intrigued. When she finds out he's in the market for a wife, she's fascinated…and determined to help.
Molding Max into every woman's dream turns out to be much easier than expected. But has Tori's plan worked a little too well? As she turns his comfortable life all sorts of upside down, she'll have to find a way to show just how she's fallen for him…the real him.

It is not uncommon to read a book about shy, socially awkward heroines. We love watching them blossom under the attention of the right person. Heroes for the most part are a different breed. Their vulnerabilities are hidden layers deep beneath assertive, high-handed alpha characteristics and bits of swagger. Over the book the heroine has to slowly peel back the layers, coaxing the hero into letting his guard down and admit to any type of weakness. While it is fascinating to watch this, there is a sense of uniqueness when a hero is candid and open up front. Max in Shannon Stacey's Falling for Max is one such hero.

Nalini Singh Announces Rock Addiction, a Contemporary Romance!

Wide Awake by Nalini SinghNalini Singh, renowned as a paranormal author, has just announced she will be releasing Rock Addiction, a contemporary romance! Like J.R. Ward, who also has a contemporary series coming soon, Singh has previously written contemporary romance for Harlequin. Rock Addiction will be out in September, and Nalini promises her contemporary romance path won't change her Psy-Changeling or Guild-Hunter release schedule. There's no cover yet, but here is the description:

A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a little risk…

Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.
A one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s all it was meant to be…

Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…

H&H Quickies #4: Valerie Bowman Presents a Prequel Scene to The Unlikely Lady

The Unexpected Duchess by Valerie BowmanToday we are over the moon to bring you an exclusive Quickie scene from Valerie Bowman, whose brand new series—The Playful Brides—began with The Unexpected Duchess in April.

Back in June, we asked you to offer suggestions (“prompts”) as inspiration for a short original scene, and you blew us away with a ton of great prompts.

Want to be alerted for our next Quickie? Become an H&H member and newsletter subscriber to get your quick fix, and all other romance news, reviews, and excerpts!

Valerie is here today to introduce you to her scene—along with two characters that are very familiar to fans of The Playful Brides series. Thanks to everyone who left a suggestion, because there were so many fantastic options:

Hi everyone! Many readers have written to tell me how much they love Jane and Garrett, two secondary characters from my latest novel, The Unexpected Duchess. Jane and Garrett have very little use for one another in the book but they do indeed get their own happily ever after next spring in the third book in my Playful Brides trilogy, The Unlikely Lady. I’ve had such a good time writing about these two that I thought it would be fun if I based my quickie on a scene that’s alluded to, but never shown, in The Unexpected Duchess—Garrett and Jane’s trip to the Bath Houses. So, without further ado, here is the quickie. I chose the prompts: pea-green waistcoat, a pair of red leather boots, and missing cravat (wink).

Bath, England
July 1815

“Oh, come now Upton. Must you dawdle?” Jane Lowndes rolled her eyes, her arms crossed tightly over her chest, her foot impatiently tapping along the stone steps leading to the Bath House.

“I’m hardly dawdling, Miss Lowndes. I’m merely not in the rush you seem to be. The Bath Houses have been here for centuries, I doubt they will crumble before I have a chance to exit the carriage.” Garrett Upton stuck his head and shoulders through the door to his coach and jumped to the ground. He straightened his hat and gloves, then turned to Miss Lowndes who had already been helped down by the footman who’d ridden with them. “Satisfied?” he asked her with a smirk.

First Impressions of Outlander Episode 1, “Sassenach”: Wait ’n’ See

Jamie and Claire in Outlander series premiere

Last night, major Outlander fan Lizzie Poteet attended an NYC screening of the first episode for H&H, even going so far as to risk her seatmates' disgust to live-tweet the post-screening Q&A with the cast and crew in order to feed our insatiable appetite for all things Jamie/Claire. (Thanks/sorry, Lizzie!) Here, she gives us her Outlander backstory (we all have one, don't we?) and then shares her first impressions of the Outlander series premiere, which Starz will begin streaming this week on August 2 and which will air on U.S. television on August 9. (Full disclosure: Lizzie is an assistant editor at St. Martin's Press/Macmillan, Heroes and Heartbreakers' parent company.)

For me, Outlander was one of those books, the ones you put off reading for years because you know, deep in your heart, that once you read it…you’ll never go back. And at the time, I simply didn’t have room for another rabid obsession in my life—I already had Lord of the Rings, Julie Garwood, and Buffy. Could I handle another fandom? Because here’s the thing we all know about the first book in Diana Gabaldon’s time travel series, Outlander is simply irresistible.

I have a working theory—confirmed by Executive Producer Ron Moore last night—that it is literally impossible to pick up Outlander and not fall in love with Jamie and Claire. You may not be a series regular and they may lose you after a few books, but the thing is: that first book is magic. It transcends genre and time. Maybe it’s because as my friend Amanda put it, “it’s this really realistic romance about a woman who travels through time…” But it is. It is really realistic. And epic. And romantic. And just plain good.

Cedar Cove Season 2, Episode 2 Recap: Baby Daddy

Maryellen and Grace in Cedar Cove 2x02Cedar Cove, the Hallmark Channel television series based on Debbie Macomber's romance novel series of the same name and starring Andie MacDowell, is back for Season 2 and H&H is all over it! Stay tuned for weekly recaps of this year's small-town shenanigans, and if you're just catching up, be sure to go back and read Rachel Hyland's Season 1 posts.

This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Cedar Cove, including Saturday night’s 2x02, “Letting Go: Part 2.”

Who knew Cedar Cove had the power to surprise me? Oh, not in terms of plot twists or anything—I have read the Debbie Macomber books on which the show is based, and while their fairly forgettable details may not exactly stand out in my mind, I well recall the general gist, the vibe of each novel’s relationship rollercoaster(s). And even where the books and series diverge, well, it’s hardly The Sixth Sense. But the fact that this episode provided some of the most romantic and exhilarating moments the show has ever given us courtesy of, of all people, John Bowman (Charlie Carrick) and Maryellen (Elyse Levesque)... well, I never would have believed it possible.

Let us see how that happened, shall we? One couple at a time...

OLIVIA AND JACK

Cedar Cove royalty Jack (Dylan Neal) and Olivia (Andie McDowell) continue to wrangle with Jack’s sulky son Eric (Tom Stevens) and his recalcitrant inamorata this week as an emotional Shelly (Hayley Sayles) still lies abed at the (surprisingly state-of-the-art) local hospital on the very verge of a) having a baby and b) giving up said baby for adoption, to the never-ending whining protest of Eric.

Mr. Right Goes Wrong by Pamela MorsiPamela Morsi
Mr. Right Goes Wrong
Harlequin MIRA / July 29, 2014 / $7.99, print & digital

No More Mr. Nice Guy

Like a bad-choice-making boomerang, Mazy Gulliver has returned to her mom's tiny house in Brandt Mountain. But this time, she's got her teenage son, Tru, in tow and no intention of messing up ever again. Mazy’s so determined to rebuild her life she hardly minds being the new loan collector, or even working for Tad, her ex. She's not here to make friends—or fall in love.

Sweet, dependable Eli Latham has loved Mazy since they got pretend married in second grade. But after being burned by Mazy for two decades, Eli's got a new strategy. Mazy likes bad boys, so a bad boy is what he'll be. How hard can it be to act like a jerk?

Not for the first time, men are making Mazy crazy, though she's determined to do what's right for her and Tru.  But breaking old habits is hard, and if she really wants things to change she'll have to face her biggest adversary: herself.

Looking for a different type of heroine, perhaps one who is imperfect?  The heroine of Pamela Morsi's Mr. Right Goes Wrong just can’t seem to quit making the same mistake over and over again—getting involved with losers.

When Mazy was in high school she got intentionally pregnant by Tad Driscoll. Tall, dark, handsome, rich—captain of the basketball team and class president—Tad is every girl’s dream guy, except he is a first class jerk, as Mazy soon discovers. After she told him she was pregnant, he denied that the baby was his, and Mazy was left to raise her son, Tru, alone. But that one experience didn’t faze her as she bounced from one bad relationship to another.  The only time she found solace with a nice guy was when she rebounded—not once, but twice into the arms of Eli Latham.  And while she never intentionally wanted to hurt her son, her choices have done exactly that:

Which Couple Has the Best Chemistry?

Eric and Sookie in True Blood

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of us have our favorite couples from romance novels, and usually what makes them our favorite is that the characters separate are fine, but together, their chemistry is explosive, and you can't imagine any other person being a better fit for them.
