A spotlight on a few upcoming 2019 Harlequin Series titles:

THE SICILIAN’S BOUGHT CINDERELLA by Michelle Smart (Harlequin Presents, 9781335478054) out on January 15, 2019:
Posing as commanding billionaire Dante Moncada’s fiancée at a glamorous society wedding is a far cry from Aislin O’Reilly’s modest life, but she’ll do anything to secure money for her sick nephew. The deal with Dante is strictly business—the gorgeous Sicilian playboy is danger personified. Yet soon their mutual explosive passion rips through the terms of their arrangement, leaving them both hungry for more…
A SOLDIER’S RETURN by RaeAnne Thayne (Harlequin Special Edition, 9781335984838) out on January 22, 2019:
Returning home to Cannon Beach and living in Brambleberry House, a place where good things seemed destined to happen, had brought Melissa Fielding and her young daughter such joy. Perhaps it was no accident when the single mom “bumped” into Eli Sanderson and discovered the handsome doctor was also back in town. The ex-soldier was still so captivating, but also more guarded. Was now the time to put old ghosts to rest?
MARINE FORCE RECON by Elle James (Harlequin Intrigue, 9781335640758) out on March 19, 2019:
Declan O’Neill’s US Marines career is over, but nothing can stop him from saving lives. When he starts an organization that aims to help people who can’t defend themselves, his first client is a woman desperate for answers. Grace Lawrence knows something happened to her roommate, and she’s certain she can trust Declan to uncover the truth…though she wonders if she can trust herself with a soldier like Declan.
NEED ME, COWBOY by Maisey Yates (Harlequin Desire, 9781335603555) out on April 2, 2019:
For five years, Levi Tucker had no control over his life, locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. Never again would any woman—any desire—overtake this cowboy’s common sense. Now Faith Grayson, the sexy, brilliant architect he’s hired to design his grand new house, is sorely testing his resolve. Faith is too young. Too innocent. Maybe just too tempting.

    I like the sound of THE SICILIAN’S BOUGHT CINDERELLA because I love Cinderella type books and the blurb sounded great. And NEED ME, COWBOY also sounds like a great read and it hinted to humor which I enjoy in my books. All of them sound like awesome reads though. Thank you for the chance to win and Happy New Years to you.

  9. Debra Branigan

    I guess THE SICILIAN’S BOUGHT CINDERELLA because its not military or a cowboy.

    THE SICILIAN’S BOUGHT CINDERELLA by Michelle Smart engagement of convenience Yay! Love the Presents line, who doesn’t like international heroes and settings! . I’ve read it for years. Michelle is a new author for me..

    A SOLDIER’S RETURN by RaeAnne Thayne I’ve been reading her stories for the past couple of years. Love ex-military heroes so damaged yet compassionate in need of love.

    NEED ME, COWBOY by Maisey Yates I recently discovered her books. I’ve read all the Gold Valley and Copper Ridge Books plus the bonus Desire stories.

  56. Linda Ortiz

    Love Cinderella’s story. The Sicilian’s Bought Cinderella sounds really good. Can’t wait to read it!

  57. Patricia B.

    Harlequin Intrigue and Special Edition are favorite categories. A SOLDIER’S RETURN by RaeAnne Thayne sounds interesting. Military and returned military characters appeal to me. The longer format of the Special Editions gives us more time to get to know the characters and more time for the author to develop both them and the story. MARINE FORCE RECON by Elle James is my favorite. The suspense, mystery, and intrigue appeal, and of course, there are former military as the main characters. The others also sound interesting.

  58. sam m

    MARINE FORCE RECON by Elle James. I really want to read it. I love almost every author on here. I have read something from a lot of them. But Not from Elle James. I love finding new great authors thank you all for everything.

  59. Tyler Ginter

    A soldier’s return. I’ve not read many fiction books featuring military.
