Joanne returns to Harlequin Desire for the McNeill Magnates series about three Manhattan hotel moguls who are tasked to find brides by their grandfather’s will. For love of the family patriarch, they try any means necessary to secure wives, starting in April 2017 with The Magnate’s Mail-Order Bride. The series continues in May with The Magnate’s Marriage Merger, and in June with His Accidental Heir, a Billionaires & Babies story.
Joanne’s June release is in stores now! Readers met Cameron McNeill in The Magnate’s Mail-Order Bride as the brother who impulsively proposes to a woman he just met. Now, Cameron gets his own story in His Accidental Heir when he goes undercover as a demanding guest at one of his own hotels to test the staff– starting with delectable Maresa Delphine!
See Joanne’s August cover for Second Chance Cowboy on the blog! This story releases August 21, 2017 and is the second in her series from Tule Publishing, Road to Romance. Second Chance Cowboy picks up where Last Chance Christmas left off as a group of single women in Manhattan fulfill their pact to make peace with the past before moving forward. In Second Chance Cowboy, dancer Larissa Martine heads back to her hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming to make amends with a surly cowboy from her past she can’t forget.
What else is Joanne working on? So much! It’s a busy year full of releases including two new additions to her “Road to Romance” series for Tule, a series that kicked off with Joanne’s Snow Globe Award winning Last Chance Christmas.
