Happy Holidays from Harlequin Special Edition
by Carly Silver, Harlequin Special Edition Editorial Assistant
’Tis almost the season for the Harlequin Special Edition team! Like many of our readers, we love Christmas time. The holiday season places great emphasis on bringing your loved ones close and spending time with your family and your community. At its heart, that’s what Special Edition is all about. This Christmas, we have an exciting lineup of books that we can’t wait for you to dive into.
In New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne’s The Christmas Ranch, Hope Nichols has always felt like an outsider…except on her family’s ranch. Their annual holiday attraction is a big draw for the residents of Pine Gulch. When Hope gets word that the attraction might be shut down forever, she heads home—and finds that Santa might have given her the gift of true love this year. By working with handsome Rafe Santiago and his cute nephew to save the property, Hope discovers the magical power of happily-ever-after—and finds her very own place in the world.
And what would a Special Edition holiday season be without the Montana Mavericks? Those roguish ranchers know how to gallop into any woman’s heart. This November, fall in love with Brenda Harlen’s The Maverick’s Thanksgiving Baby. Once burned by love, cowboy Jesse Crawford doesn’t believe in affairs of the heart—until he meets out-of-towner Maggie Roarke. But when a night of passion yields surprising results, Jesse finds himself wanting so much more—forever and a family!—with the one woman who might break his heart.
If you’re a longtime Mavericks reader, revisit friends old and new in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Lee’s A Very Maverick Christmas (out in December). In this stunning conclusion to the Montana Mavericks: 20 Years in the Saddle! continuity, Julie Smith isn’t looking to snag a hunky cowboy when she arrives in Rust Creek Falls. In fact, the amnesiac beauty is searching for her clues to her own past. Rancher Braden Traub can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious new girl in town. But can he help Julie find the links to her past—and create a future with her?
The Special Edition team—and all of us at Harlequin—wish you a wonderful holiday season. We hope you find Christmas joy wherever it may roam, whether under the mistletoe or in the heart of a story. May this holiday season be full of love, laughter, and, of course, books!
