Harlequin Presents

The Billionaire's Bride of Vengeance by Miranda Lee Though he's superrich and supereligible, marriage hasn't been on Russell McClain's agenda. Instead the handsome Sydney tycoon is focused on personal revenge—and Nicole Power, his sworn enemy's daughter, is central to his plan. She will pay for her fraudster father's sins. Russell will ruthlessly seduce her, bed her and discard her….But when Russell's desire for Nicole becomes very real and very strong, one night is not enough. However, making Nicole his willing wife might just satisfy his need for vengeance…. Harlequin Blaze Made You Look by Jamie Sobrato From the safety of her living room, Arianna Day has been enjoying the sensual maneuvers of the man she's dubbed Sir Sex-a-Lot. Watching her neighbor has fueled more than one of her steamy fantasies, which makes him the perfect candidate to end her bout of celibacy. She's not looking for commitment—she just wants some of what he freely gives.Too bad seducing Noah Kellerman is more complicated than she thought. Oh, sure, the between-the-sheets—and the on-the-desk and the against-the-wall—action is everything she wants. But their physical closeness seems to have encouraged Noah to get close emotionally. Can Arianna give up being the next woman in his window to be the only woman in his life? Silhouette Desire

Texan's Wedding-Night Wager by Charlene Sands

Four years later, she returned, intent on finalizing their divorce. But Cara had no clue that Kevin had constructed the perfect payback plan. It's a wager she can't refuse. The divorce would be official…if she agreed to one last week of playing house. And nothing would be off-limits.

Silhouette Nocturne

Moon Kissed by Michele Hauf

Escaping from bloodthirsty vampires, Belladonna Reynolds ran straight into the arms of a werewolf. As a man Severo drew her in with his dark good looks; as a beast he astounded her with his insatiable sensual appetite. Whether afraid or aroused, Bella fled to his lair when threatened by an evil monster of the night….Severo tried to keep Bella—his mate—safe from the vampiress who held a malicious desire for revenge against him, but he alone wasn't enough. Now Bella had taken the form of his most cursed enemy. How could he desire the very thing he'd spent his life destroying?

Kathleen O'Reilly

Kathleen O'Reilly wrote her first romance at the age of eleven, which to her undying embarrassment was read aloud to her class. After taking over twenty years to recover from the profound distress, she is now proud to finally announce her career - a romance author. Now she is the award-winning author of nearly twenty romances published in countries all over the world. Kathleen lives in New York with her husband and their two children who outwit her daily. Kathleen shares a little with us from her latest release Hot Under Pressure.

“Hot Under Pressure is a Harlequin Blaze that answers that long-suffering question: If air travel is going to be such a huge pain to deal with these days, can a single woman please sit next to a hot, single man who’s you know, nice? Sometimes (usually only in fiction), the answer is *yes*.I got the story idea when I was doing a lot of flying in 2007 and I spent as much time on the tarmac as I did in the air. After one really awful delay, I thought to myself, “Self, you know this getting stuck would make a great book plot. Two people grounded at the airport with nothing better to do it.” And voila, the book was born.”
