I am BEYOND excited to announce that Heroes and Heartbreakers will be publishing two brand-new short stories this fall, just in time for the holiday season: “Close to You” (a Downside Ghosts story and a companion to “Home”!!!) by Stacia Kane, and “Wanderlust” by Kitty French (the author who brought you Lucien Knight!!!).
H&H members will be able to read both stories exclusively on the site BEFORE they go on sale, so stay tuned! And that's not all: H&H's stories are part of a larger holiday story program—look for more on that soon! Suffice to say, the holidays are gonna ROCK this year. So much romance goodness ahead!
Close to You: A Downside Ghosts Story by Stacia Kane (October 8, 2013)
THE HOLIDAYS ARE HELL
Churchwitch Chess Putnam has seen, and banished, her share of ghosts, but not of the Christmas Past variety—the holiday has been illegal since the Church of Real Truth defeated the undead and took control of the world in 1997. Yet when she and her boyfriend, Terrible, make a trip to an abandoned auto junkyard, they find more than the rusted auto parts and spare tires they’d bargained for. They also run across a creepy Miss Havisham-type hell-bent on reuniting with her long-dead husband just in time for Christmas—even if it means taking Chess and Terrible down with her into the City of Eternity…
If Chess and Terrible don't manage to keep these ghosts in the past, they won't have a future…
Wanderlust by Kitty French (November 5, 2013)
Ruby has been in love with Ford since their university days, but she hasn't seen her former best friend in years—not since the one unforgettable kiss they shared right before he went off globe-trotting and she stayed behind. When he returns to town unexpectedly for their friends' New Year's Eve wedding, the sparks between them ignite, but can her wanderer ever settle down?
Ford has never forgotten Ruby, or the kiss that changed everything between them, despite the many women he has tried to erase her with. His return to England for the wedding means a second chance with Ruby—but will one passion-filled evening with her be enough, or has he finally found his home?
Working on these stories has been an INSANE amount of fun, and we can't wait to share them with you!
