What Do You Love Best About Harlequin Special Edition?
by Christine Rimmer, author of The Lawman’s Convenient Bride
I’m Christine Rimmer and I’ve been writing for Harlequin Special Edition for a very long time. There’s so much to love about Special Edition. First and foremost, we are all about home and family. Our stories feature heroines who could be you or your best friend, heroines who face the same everyday life challenges as you do.
In Special Edition, you will find all the most beloved romance situations. Secret babies, fake engagements, babies found on doorsteps, pregnant heroines, bosses and secretaries falling in love, marriages of convenience, princesses finding love with cowboys… You name the classic romance convention and chances are we’ve got it for you in Special Edition. We love reinventing a classic plot every time we do it.
In SE, we do have it all. The heroes can be beta, they can be the guy next-door. They don’t have to be macho tycoons or ranchers or sheikhs—but it’s way more than all right if they are. That, to me, is the best thing about SE. As long as it could happen in what most of us think as “real” contemporary life, you will find it in SE.
So happy 35th birthday, Special Edition! And here’s to more great stories for years and years to come.
And tell me. What do you love best about Harlequin Special Edition?
About The Lawman’s Convenient Bride:
FIRST COMES MARRIAGE
Feisty, fearless Jody Bravo’s set to do everything for her baby. She doesn’t need anything from anyone—especially the stepbrother of her baby’s late father. But lawman Seth Yancy won’t leave her to face parenthood alone, no matter how prepared she is. And even though Jody resists, soon she’s taken in completely by his charms—and agrees to be his wife…
THEN COMES LOVE?
Hunky Sheriff Yancy’s not without his fair share of admirers in Justice Creek. After a terrible tragedy years before, though, he’s faced life alone. Now the real-life woman of his dreams just happens to be his bride—and pregnant with the child of his heart, if not his reality. So “father” is a role that will come naturally to Seth. And will “husband” really be that far behind?
