Announcing New H&H Story “The Gentleman and the Lamplighter” by Summer Devon!

The Gentleman and the Lamplighter by Summer DevonExciting news this afternoon! Heroes and Heartbreakers is positively giddy to announce the upcoming publication of a brand-new original short story, Summer Devon's “The Gentleman and the Lamplighter,” which already has a cover! Get a load of the gorgeous art and read on for all the details:

“The Gentleman and the Lamplighter”
by Summer Devon

You Can’t Walk Away from Love

Destroyed by the death of his former schoolmate yet unable to show it publicly, Giles Fullerton has taken to walking the streets of London in the middle of the night, the only time he can safely mourn the only person he’s ever loved—until one chance meeting with a lamplighter changes everything…

But You Can Walk Toward It

Widower John Banks knows a thing or two about grief, and immediately recognizes a kindred spirit when he finally meets the handsome, haunted gentleman he’s admired from afar. And in fact, the two men discover shared passions and the possibility of a forever love—if they can overcome social taboos, and their own fears…

HeroesandHeartbreakers.com members will be the first to be able to read the story, which will be posted to the site on December 3 (mark your calendars!), so be sure to join up now so that you won't miss a thing. (And don't forget to check the box to subscribe to the newsletter for early access to this and future stories, as well as other exclusive content.)

As usual, the story will also be available as an e-book, due out in January 2015.

We cannot wait to share this wonderful new addition to the H&H short story program with you, and we hope you'll join us on Wednesday, December 3, to read and discuss!

xoxo,
Team H&H

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.
