Joanne returns to the Harlequin Desire series this spring 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 75th title for Harlequin Books is her May 2017 release, The Magnate’s Marriage Merger! What an exciting milestone. Some highlights from her long career with Harlequin:
Joanne has authored nine medieval historicals that were released in print and eight Harlequin Historical “Undone” stories that were released as ebooks. Her historicals are some of her most reprinted and reissued works around the globe!
Joanne’s first book for Harlequin was for the Temptation line, where she fell in love with stories by other then-Temptation authors like Lori Foster, Carly Phillips and Janelle Denison.
The majority of Joanne’s romances– so far– have been released in Harlequin’s Blaze series.
These days, you’ll find all of Joanne’s new Harlequin stories in the Desire series, including #75, The Magnate’s Marriage Merger. Look for another milestone– Joanne’s first amnesia story– coming in 2018.
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.
