H&H Redesign Update #3

H&H under construction

Hey guys,

We hope you all haven’t forgotten that the H&H site is under construction! No changes are visible yet, but we can tell you we’re finally able to breathe again after an intense design phase. No one said getting a makeover would be easy. Whew!

As we wrap up the design phase, we’re excited to tell you that the look and feel of the new site is shaping up to be more in sync with H&H's plans for the future. Next up is actually moving all of our posts, comments, images, etc. into the new site, which will take a few more months.

We'll keep you in the loop about what some of those changes will entail before the new site launches in spring 2016, but until then we'd love to know more about how you use the H&H New Releases Romance Novel Shopping List, which is our pride and joy and something we think (hope!) you enjoy too.

Can you tell us the top reasons you use the shopping list from month to month? For instance, do you skim it to see what's out from specific authors, or do you like to see what's out across the whole genre? Do you look at the page on a desktop or phone, or do you prefer to print it out and take it to a store? Do you look at the list every week, or only once a month? Basically, how is the list most useful to you, and what improvements, if any, would you like to see in future?

Thanks for your input and stay tuned for what's next!

BREAKING NEWS: Sylvia Day Reveals One with You (Crossfire #5) Cover and Release Date!

One with You by Sylvia Day

This is it! The countdown clock has finally hit zero, and we are beyond excited to light up your Tuesday morning with the major romance news we promised was coming soon:

Minutes ago, Sylvia Day revealed the cover and release date for the fifth and final Crossfire novel, One with You!!!! See her make the announcement first-hand in a special video message to fans.

Gaze at the lovely, meaningful cover (THEIR WEDDING RINGS, AHHH!) as long as you like and then mark your calendar: Eva and Gideon's last book, One with You will be hitting shelves on April 5, 2016!

Update: Read the first scene from One with You!

Fun fact: Bared to You, the novel that started it all, was published on April 3, 2012, so we can celebrate its book birthday as we come full circle and read the final installment (sniff!).

Here's the official description of One with You from Day's website:

The final chapter in the global blockbuster Crossfire quintet.

Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I've ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.

Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.

We have bared our deepest, ugliest secrets to one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all my flaws ... and all the beauty I couldn't see. He has given me everything. Now, I must prove I can be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us.

But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength. Committing to love was only the beginning. Fighting for it will either set us free ... or break us apart.

Heartbreakingly and seductively poignant, One with You is the breathlessly awaited finale to the Crossfire® saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers worldwide.

[+ a quote from Sylvia Day herself!...]

Good-Night, Twilight: Stephenie Meyer Producing TV Series The Rook

The Rook by Daniel O'MalleyTwilight author Stephenie Meyer has picked her next project: Executive producing a television adaptation of Daniel O'Malley's novel The Rook, a book former H&H community manager Megan Frampton described as “a paranormal MI-5 when she chose it as one of her best reads in 2014. Vulture reported the news mere minutes ago (thanks to Miss_D for the heads-up!).

While it may not be a new Twilight project, Meyer DID just present the world with Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, and anyway, something tells us fans will find plenty to like about The Rook if the show does in fact get a full-season order at Hulu. After all, “supernatural threats” must include vampires and werewolves...right? And who knows? Heroine Myfanwy Thomas could end up becoming as world-famous and beloved as Bella Swan...

In the meantime, if you want to find out what the fuss over The Rook is all about, head over to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other favorite e-tailer to investigate the book.

Learn more about Born of Betrayal

Years ago, family loyalty caused Fain Hauk to give up everything he loved: His military career. His planet. His fiancée. Even his name.

Now decades later, everything has changed. He's built a new life out of the ashes of his old, and he's vowed to never let anything threaten his loved ones again.

But when old enemies align themselves with new ones, he's caught in the middle of a brutal war. And when fate throws his former fiancée back into his world and she has her own agenda that includes taking his head for what he did to her years ago, more than just his life is at stake. The fate of the Ichidian universe and that of his brothers-in-arms hangs in the balance. Winner take all.

It's kill or be killed, and never has the battle been more fierce...

Or more fun, in Born of Betrayal, the next League: Nemesis Rising novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon!

The battle isn't just on old ashes of gravel, but old love wounds may be lurking.

Trick or Treat: See Your Favorite Romance Covers in Costume!

As romance readers, we love nothing more than to disappear into a new world for a few hours at a time and slip into the role of our favorite characters. One night a year, Halloween allows us to live out that fantasy in real life, too—to put on a costume and become someone else for a while!

With that in mind, we had a thought: Why not dress up some of our favorite romance novel covers for Halloween too?

H&H Bloggers Recommend: Best Reads of October 2015

Hyde & Seek by Layla Frost

Each month, we ask our bloggers to share the best thing they’ve read (or things, plural, if our bloggers declare a tie ’cause they just can’t choose). It doesn’t have to be a new book, as evidenced below; just something that made the month sparkle a bit more.

Without further ado, here’s the installment for October 2015 (and if you’ve missed any, be sure to check out past recs via the Related Posts section at the bottom of the post):

Jennifer Proffitt:

After many months of this book being recommended to me, I finally picked up Layla Frost's Hyde & Seek...and my life was changed. She's a debut author and she is. One. To. Watch! If the rest of the series holds up as well as Hyde & Seek, then we're all in for a treat! Hyde & Seek reads like Kristen Ashley meets Jay Crownover, and it's a pretty solid read...and then you hit the 80% mark and you're hit with a twist so hard and out of the blue that you might as well be Regina George getting hit by that bus in Mean Girls (spoiler alert for Mean Girls). And when I say it's a twist, I mean you will NEVER guess it. Try. I did. And I'm good at figuring out twists. Just not this one. So. Good. 

Janet Webb:

Two books enthralled me this October: the Christmas in Duke Street anthology (from the fine anthology quartet of Miranda Neville, Carolyn Jewel, Shana Galen, and Grace Burrowes), and the latest Kristen Ashley,Walk Through Fire. I just couldn’t pick a favorite! Let’s start with Walk Through Fire. Our heroine, Millie, in line at Chipotle, hears a voice from her romantic past. The one she let get away. Logan. She recognizes his voice but then she sees him.
