August HQN Features

Congratulations to "Lynn B.", the winner in Janice and Deb's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

by USA Today bestselling author Janice Maynard

It’s a steamy reunion between a single mom and the billionaire who got away in SECOND CHANCE WITH THE BILLIONAIRE ($5.25, August 4, 2015). 

Former ski champion Conor Kavanagh enjoys a challenge. And he’s encountered no challenge more arousing than Ellie Porter. Once, she broke his heart. Now that she’s back in town? He can’t seem to stay away…

But Ellie has changed. Widowed, with a baby, she has responsibilities and secrets weighing her down. Still, his desire for her is undeniable. Surely, he can have her without giving up his heart-or his daredevil ways? He’s willing to risk it all to find out.

JANICE MAYNARD knew she loved books and writing by the time she was 8 years old. But it took multiple rejections and many years of trying before she sold her first three novels in 1996 and 1997. After teaching kindergarten and second grade for 16 years, Janice turned to writing full-time in the fall of 2002. Since then she has written and sold over twenty five books and novellas. Her publishers include Kensington, Penguin/NAL, Berkley, and Harlequin. Janice lives in east Tennessee with her husband, Charles. They love hiking, traveling, and spending time with their family.

by Deb Kastner

In The Cowboy’s Surprise Baby ($5.99; July 21, 2015) a hometown Texas reunion leads to unexpected love. After years away serving his country, Cole Bishop finally returns home – with a newborn baby in tow. As a single dad, Cole needs help. But the last thing he expects to encounter at his new job is his high school sweetheart – all grown up and more beautiful than ever. 

Tessa Applewhite might have broken Cole’s heart years before, but she’s never forgotten him. And he can wrangle her heart like no one else ever has. But Tessa rejected him when the stakes weren’t nearly as high. Can Cole trust her again – and in the process, form a forever family?
