And what could be more soothing than getting sucked into a story of blooming love, with charismatic characters that make you forget all your troubles?

NEVER TRUST A COWBOY
By Kathleen Eagle

Harlequin Special Edition; December 16, 2014
$5.50 US; 224 pages
ISBN-13: 9780373658596



The last thing harried Lila Flynn needed was another cowboy to deal with, but new hire Del Fox was different than most sweet-talking wranglers. The hard worker had a gentle touch and eyes that spoke of a past he didn't share. Lila soon found her hardened heart softening, frightening her more than any other hurdles she was facing.



Del's assignment in Short Straw, South Dakota, was meant to be fast and simple. Falling for Lila Flynn, however, had complicated everything. If he did his job right it would mean destroying everything Lila had worked for. He'd given her every reason never to trust him with her heart, but when all was said and done, would she trust their love enough to give them a second chance?

Love Lessons Learned
with Kathleen Eagle
author of
NEVER TRUST A COWBOY

How do you know when you really know someone? The first meeting between a man and a woman usually involves an exchange of names and maybe some whys and wherefores, all of which may or may not be true. You come away with conscious impressions—good or bad—but overriding all of it, there might be a feeling, a magnetic pull, and you want more. So you dare to take another step. But is what you see really what you’ll get? How do you know? When you start peeling away layers of a person’s skin, you will find secrets.

This is where trust comes in. Much has been said about cowboys—easy to love, hard to hold—but when you’ve done the easy part, how do you manage the hard part? What would make you dare to trust your inexplicable feelings?

SNOWED IN WITH HER EX

By Andrea Laurence
Harlequin Desire; January 15, 2015
$5.25 US; 192 pages
ISBN-13: 9780373733620

Wedding photographer Briana Harper never expected to run into her ex at an engagement shoot and when a blizzard strands them alone in a remote mountain cabin, she knows she's in trouble. She's never forgotten Ian Lawson, but none of the reasons they broke up have changed. He's still a workaholic—and now he's an engaged workaholic. But Ian is also still a man who knows what he wants and what he wants is Briana. Untangling the lies of his current engagement leaves him free to indulge, but proving he's changed may be this music mogul's toughest negotiation yet.

About the author

ANDREA LAURENCE has been devouring books since she learned to read at the age of 3. An old portable typewriter got her started writing in her room at 8 and she's been writing ever since. Her practical nature led her to pursue a master's degree and a career that would pay the bills, but the writing bug continued to bite. She started working ferociously in her spare time to become a published author and has become an active member of her local RWA chapter, Heart of Dixie. After eight years and 11 completed manuscripts, she finally made the leap and got "the call" from Harlequin Desire on May 31, 2011.

A dedicated West Coast girl transplanted into the Deep South, Andrea is working on her real-life "happily ever after" with her boyfriend of 10 years and their collection of animals including two cats, two mutts and a Siberian husky that sheds like nobody's business.


So kick off your shoes, grab a glass of wine, head for the bath and let Harlequin’s hunks and heartthrobs take you away. You deserve it.
