Fresh Outta the Oven

If well-behaved women seldom make history, Megan Frampton's next heroine will be a legend! See the cover for Lady Be Bad, Book 1 in the Duke's Daughters series, and get the scoop on who makes Lady Eleanor want to be quite wicked.

Christmas bonus (scene) time! Turns out, Callie Hutton's Seducing the Marquesss doesn't exactly end at the novel's last page... Reunite with Devon and Eugenia in a newly released extra scene, “Christmas by the Book,” over at USA Today's HEA blog.

About Passengers... We here at Team H&H were excited about the idea of and trailers for sci-fi movie Passengers, but from what the early reviews are saying, what we thought would be a romantic space drama is actually a “creepy ode to manipulation” that we've now reconsidered seeing. Disappointing, to say the least.

*We don't know how long deals will last, so get 'em while you can!
