It’s never too late to put your best foot forward. From the outside, Reagan “Rae” Doucet has it all: a coveted career in Washington, DC, a tight circle of friends and a shoe closet to die for. When one of her crew falls ill, however, Rae is done playing it safe. The talented but unfulfilled writer makes a “risk list” to revamp her life. But forgiving her ex, Jake Saunders, might be one risk too many…






(Harlequin Desire, $5.25, 9781335735423, on-sale January 25, 2022):

Her secret tore them apart. Will his secret reunite them? World-renowned cellist Angie Han is desperate to save her trio’s chamber music society. So when she discovers that her ex Joshua Shin is the anonymous composer setting the classical music world on fire, she asks for his help. The sexy musician agrees to an uneasy truce to protect his secret success. But when their passion reignites, Angie’s own secrets may be exposed. Will Joshua ever trust her again? And will what’s keeping them apart ever lead them to happily-ever-after?

Matchmaker, matchmaker…reunite with your ex? With his revolutionary dating app, Will Taylor plays matchmaker extraordinaire—but he’s still a cynical bachelor after Finley Smythe broke his heart. Now a starring turn in his own reality matchmaking show could change that, if his plans aren’t upended by the storm that strands Will and his ex at a secluded California ranch.

Heir to a tarnished DC dynasty, Finley has enough problems without getting back in Will’s bed—especially with the world watching his every matchmaking move! Will Finley be happier staying exes—or are they the perfect match after all?

      ’m a huge fan of Harlequin category romances! All of the authors listed are new for me! Several new grandchildren and babysitting duties have left me with less time to read. Hope to remedy that in 2022!

Would love to read & review all the books listed in print format. But if I have to choose a book it would be Harlequin Special Edition The Shoe Diaries. But the fact that Rae is done playing it safe and is willing to take more risks. But will she take the one risk of forgiving her Ex? Why ? The plots/ story line sound intriguing, suspenseful and interesting and unique.

    Thank You for sharing these Great Sounding Books with us

  34. Patricia B.

    A good start to the year. There is a nice wide variety of writers for the Desire line. My favorite Harlequin lines are their Historical and Intrigue lines, so of course THE HIGHLANDER’S STOLEN BRIDE by Madeline Martin would be the book in this group I am most interested in.

  35. Tina R

    A great list of books. I want to read THE SHOE DIARIES to see what a “risk list” looks like.
