Another day, another way to follow H&H—we're now on YouTube! Subscribe to the HeroesnHearts channel to catch weekly Debriefings in which Team H&H's Heather, Megan, and/or Jenn discuss what's hot in romance.

Today we chatted roundtable-style about our latest favorite topic: Outlander. Each of us has a slightly different take on the first episode, but all of us are really psyched about the show and have Strong Opinions about some recent articles in the mainstream media about it.

We know you're passionate too, so please do share your Outlander thoughts in the comments!

Like Christmas in August: 12 Holiday Novellas Coming Soon! (Exclusive Cover Reveals!)

One Hot Scot by Suzanne EnochLast month, we announced that H&H will be publishing two holiday-themed original stories—Stacia Kane's Close to You and Kitty French's Wanderlust—and that they are part of a larger holiday program. Well, now we can officially reveal that between Heroes and Heartbreakers and St. Martin's Press, there are actually TWELVE original e-books (including a previously published fan-favorite story from Francis Ray) coming out this fall from authors you love!

It's true: Suzanne Enoch, Sugar Jamison, Stacia Kane, Elizabeth Essex, Cat Devon, Zoë Archer, Beth Ciotta, Diane Kelly, Valerie Bowman, Donna Grant, and Kitty French have all written the most delightful holiday novellas for the program, and we can't wait for you to fall in love with them just as we have.

Today, Heroes and Heartbreakers is pleased to share the covers and descriptions for all 12 of these very special stories:

Suzanne Enoch's One Hot Scot: A Scandalous Highlanders Story (October 1, 2013)

“One Hot Scot” is a special holiday story from Suzanne Enoch!

While attending her aunt's wedding in Inverness, Julia Prentiss is literally swept off her feet by a man who kidnaps her for her fortune. Julia manages to escape from his estate in the Highlands, only to find herself alone, lost, and hunted in a strange land. When she stumbles across a naked man in a lake, she thinks her luck has gone from bad to worse…or has it?

Duncan Lenox lives surrounded by enemies, a MacLawry in a land of Campbells. With three sisters at home who rely on him, he's become a very cautious man. But when an auburn-haired English beauty has nowhere else to turn, he feels obligated to help. When the two are forced to spend the night in an abandoned cottage while a storm rages and enemies circle, they find a mutual passion that could save — or doom — them both.
