Harlequin Books Spotlight & Giveaway: Showcasing November Titles!


The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins

TPMWhat if the perfect match is a perfect surprise?

Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now—a mere three weeks later—Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend. But resilient, reliable Honor is going to pick herself up, dust herself off and get back out there…or she would if dating in Manningsport, New York, population 715, wasn’t easier said than done.

Charming, handsome British professor Tom Barlow just wants to do right by his unofficial stepson, Charlie, but his visa is about to expire. Now Tom must either get a green card or leave the States—and leave Charlie behind.

In a moment of impulsiveness, Honor agrees to help Tom with a marriage of convenience—and make her ex jealous in the process. But juggling a fiancé, hiding out from her former best friend and managing her job at the family vineyard isn’t easy. And as sparks start to fly between Honor and Tom, they might discover that their pretend relationship is far too perfect to be anything but true love….

Wyoming Bold by Diana Palmer

WB1New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author DIANA PALMER is back with a thrilling new story featuring the Kirk brothers of Wyoming

Former border agent Dalton Kirk thought his life was over—literally—when a gang of smugglers left him for dead. Defying all odds, he survives his ordeal and returns to his Wyoming ranch ready to dedicate his future to a more peaceful home on the range. Until lovely Merissa Baker knocks on his door.

Merissa is well aware of her reputation as the local eccentric—she knows things before they happen—and she’s had a vision that Dalton is in danger. Even though her beliefs clash with Dalton’s cowboy logic, she’s determined to save the handsome rancher she’s secretly loved forever.

Visions? It’s all ridiculous to Dalton…until things start happening that prove Merissa right. And now Dalton is not the only target—so is Merissa. Can Dalton be bold enough to trust the unknown? Is this Wyoming man ready to love?

What the Bride Didn’t Know by Kelly Hunter

WYBDKShh…it’s a secret!

Special ops expert Trig Sinclair is a man’s man, and that means he knows the cardinal rule of the bro code—no matter how dynamite Lena West is, as his best friend’s younger sister, she’s strictly off-limits!

But when a secret mission to Istanbul sees Lena and Trig pretending to be married (and sharing a bed!), he finds himself in a whole new world of sweet torture…. But if Trig thinks playing the honor-bound hero is tough, it’s got nothing on how Lena feels when she discovers what her “groom” is really hiding….

One Night with the Laird by Nicola Cornick

ONWTLCan true love be born from scandal?

She is young and beautiful and fashionable, Edinburgh’s most flirtatious hostess. But within the merry widow beats a grieving heart. Lady Mairi mourns the husband she lost two years before—and no matter how accomplished a lover Jack Rutherford may be, their wanton night together was an encounter of the body only, and Lady Mairi would prefer to forget it.

But when Mairi is threatened by a blackmailer, Jack is the only man who can protect her. As they work together to uncover where the danger lies, their passion reignites. Little by little, the masks they wear burn away, and their most private secrets come to light….

Improper Arrangements by Juliana Ross

IM3France, 1866

A reckless infatuation nearly ruined Lady Alice Cathcart-Ross in her youth, but from the moment she spies Elijah Philemon Keating scaling a rock face without a rope in sight, the man awakens her long-buried desire. Alice has come to the high Alps in search of a mountaineer, and in Elijah she finds the guide of her dreams.

Though Elijah is known as one of the greatest explorers of the age, a tragic accident has destroyed his taste for adventure and society. Elijah can’t deny his attraction to Alice, but he resolves to avoid the entanglement that could accompany it. He promises Alice one week in the Alps, and no more.

Alice agrees, valuing her independence above all else. But as the heights they climb by day are overshadowed by the summits of passion they reach at night, these vows become harder and harder to keep…

    They all look good, I would happy with any but want them all 😉 I am greedy like that 😉

  2. Kim Pinch

    I like all of the books and would like to read them all. My first choice would be The Perfect Match because I have enjoyed reading other books by Kristan Higgins so I am sure I would like this one.

  3. Justine

    I’ll go for the marriage of convenience plots in The Perfect Match and What the Bride Didn’t Know. For the latter, add in the off-limits best friend’s sibling and it sounds awesomely troperific.

  4. Nancy H

    Wyoming Bold because she is one of my favorite authors. I have read almost everything from Diana Palmer since I was 16 . 30 years I love her so much. I go to the library and reread series. I reread the first too Wyoming series already..

  5. Linda Brennan

    What a great selection of books! I would love to win the book by Diana Palmer, because the plot sounds so interesting. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  6. Lori H

    They all look good and I’d love to have them all. However if I had to choose one it would be Juliana Ross or Nicola Cornick.

  7. Connie Fischer

    I have to say that I would be delighted to read all of the novels mentioned here, but if I had to put them in order of which one(s) I would grab first, it would be Nicola Cornick’s “One Night with the Laird” and Kristan Higgins, “The Perfect Match.” These two plots simply reach out to me like a magnet.

  8. KateS

    They are all interesting and I’d love to read any of them… but I’d read Kristan Higgins “The Perfect Match” first.

  9. Betty Hamilton

    TPerfect Match looks like a good book. I have read several others by this author and loved them. Nicola Cornick’s book also looks good. She is another author that I always enjoy!

  10. ndluebke

    While they all look good, Wyoming Bold especially caught my eye. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. msrh0nda

    I would love to win perfect match bc Kristin Higgins is awesome. I love historical romance so I’d like to read One night with the Laird and I like cowboys do the Diana Palmer book is on my wish list as well!

  12. holdenj

    What a great assortment of books. The new Kristin Higgins book caught my eye, as did the Harlequin Kiss. They always look so fun. Thanks!

  13. Lori Meehan

    One Night with the Laird by Nicola Cornick and Improper Arrangements by Juliana Ross I love historical romance and both these books sound really good.

  14. Margaret

    All the books look great, but I think the one I most want to read is What the Bride Didn’t Know by Kelly Hunter – I’m really enjoying the little sister/best friend trope right now and throw in that he is a special ops agent…I’m definitely interested!

  15. Leanna

    I already have the Perfect Mstch by Kristan Higgins on my wishlist. I love her books and I loved the first book in her Blue Heron series.

  16. Rita Wray

    They all sound great but I think I’d like to read Wyoming Bold by Diana Palmer, it sounds intriguing.

  17. Diane Sallans

    I’d love any of the print books – first choice would be Diana Palmer’s because she’s been a long time favorite, but I’d love to read Nicola Cornick’s too cause I love Highlanders and Kristin Higgin’s cause her books sound like so much fun.

  18. Susan T.

    Would love to win The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins or Wyoming Bold by Diana Palmer. Both are new authors.

    • Andrea Garcia

      I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Wyoming Bold via NetGalley and I absolutely loved it. Nobody does a sweet and innocent romance like Diana Palmer. She is always a must read for me.

  19. Donna Hammer Durnell

    Unfortunately, reading the blurbs and the excerpts just makes me want to read each and every one of these books! I already don’t have the time or money to indulge in all the books I want to read.
    The first 3 books spotlighted above would probably be my favorites of them all. Diana Palmer’s Wyoming Bold and The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins are neck ‘n’ neck for first choice. But Kelly Hunter’s What the Bride Didn’t Know follows very close behind. All three of these have elements of mystery, suspense and I like that.

  20. Ada

    I think all these books sound amazing! I would say Kristan Higgins’ The Perfect Match would be my first choice because I”m a huge fan of her writing and enjoy her stories. I also would love to win What the Bride Didn’t Know by Kelly Hunter. I’ve enjoyed the Harlequin Kiss books way more than I thought and this sounds like another fantastic read. I really want to find out what happens in their story!

  21. Laurie Gommermann

    I actually liked the story lines of all of these books! Excellent selection! Diana Palmer is an auto buy for me.
    My choice would be Kristan Higgin’s The Perfect Match. I’ve read wonderful reviews about this book and her previous work. I need to read something lighthearted and tender. I’d love to read Tom and Honor’s marriage of convenience/ green card themed romance.

  22. Anita H.

    All these books sound amazing. I’d like to win Kelly Hunter’s “What the Bride Didn’t Know” or Nicola Cornick’s “One Night with the Laird”. I haven’t read either author yet but the blurbs definitely caught my attention and make me want to find out more, both about the authors and about the characters in their stories!

  23. Delene

    Iwould love to read The Perfect Match. Kridtan Higgins is one of my favorite authors. I discovered this author while looking for a stack of books at the library because I was having knee surgery this past summer and I would be recuperating for awhile! She brought many a giggle and some heartfelt tears. i soooo very enjoy her!!

  24. Sharlene Wegner

    The Perfect Match was excellent! Love all of Kristan’s books. I read the first book in Nicola’s series, The Lady & the Laird, which was a book that stuck with you, so I am looking forward to One Night With the Laird. I am also a big fan of the Harlequin Kiss books!

  25. dutcheja

    I am a huge fan of Kristan Higgins and would love to read this book. I haven’t been able to purchase this one yet. I would also love to win What the Bride Didn’t Know by Kelly Hunter, I haven’t read this author yet so this would be a perfect time to fall in love with a new author.

  26. Kai W.

    All of these books are excellent selection that it is hard to choose. I love Perfect Match for the humor that Kristen Higgins always bring to her books but I also love Wyoming Bold and One Night with the Laird for the suspense. Very tough choice indeed.

  27. EllenToo

    While all the books seem interesting I particularly like The Perfect Match by Kristin Higgins and Wyoming Bold by Diana Palmer which are the ones I would also love to win.

  28. Texas Book Lover

    I would read them all but Wyoming Bold and The Perfect Match would top the list. I have read books by both authors and always love them plus both stories sound amazing!

  29. Jeanne Miro

    Kudos to Haarlequin for the wonderful books being released this month by some of favorite authors!

    The one book that immediately got my attention after reading the excerpts was One Night with the Laird by Nicole Cornick! It took me back in time to the time my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Scotland to search the homeland of my ancestors. We loved our time in Edinburgh where we stayed right on the Royal Mile within easy walking distance to Edinburgh Castle which dominates the skyline! My husband got such a kick out of watching the reconstruction being done on the Castle at the time and being a Master brick and stone mason noticed the men at work. While watching them work he turned and said to me they’d never last long if they worked in America because they were only carrying one brick at a time instead of using a wheel barrow!

    Whether walking down the street or while introducing him to wonderful Single Malt Scotch the townspeople welcomed us with open arms.

    We walked the same streets and alleyways that Maire and Jack walked in their story. I loved the excerpt and can’t wait to find out “the rest of the story”!

  30. BethRe

    One Night with the Laird by Nicola Cornick I enjoyed her books in the past and would be interested in reading this one

  31. Marcy Shuler

    ONE NIGHT WITH THE LAIRD. I love Nicola Cornick’s writing and there’s nothing better than a Scottish hero.

    IMPROPER ARRANGEMENTS also sounds interesting.

  32. Allison W

    I really want The Perfect Match because I’ve been wanting to try Kristen’s books, and What the Bride Didn’t know, because I’ve loved every HQ Kiss book I’ve read!

  33. Sandie W

    I want to read them all! But you asked for one. The Perfect Match would be my 1st choise, because I love Kristen’s writing. My 2nd choise would be Wyoming Bold, because it sounds intriguing!

  34. Claira Pam

    Ooh, these all sound good! But I really like What the Bride Didn’t Know in particular — I am a sucker for pretend relationships!! (And secrets!)

  35. Debra Woloson

    Kristan Higgins is my first choice due to that is the latest series I have read and love. I haven’t read any of the others but would love to try all of them.

  36. Christine L.

    All of the spotlighted titles sound great, but if pressed I’d choose WYOMING BOLD because it’s set in the West and the leading lady may have the gift of second sight. Second choices would be IMPROPER ARRANGEMENTS because I love historicals set in France and ONE NIGHT WITH THE LAIRD as it’s set in Scotland (home to some of my ancestors).

  37. We're Jumpin' Books

    The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins sounds so good! I see it all the time on different blogs and every time I hear about it the more I want it haha! But all the spotlighted books sound great!
