Celebrate 35 Years of Harlequin Desire with Author Susan Mallery
by Susan Mallery
I’m honored to help celebrate the thirty-fifth anniversary of Harlequin Desire. For many of those years, I was a secret Desire wannabe. I was writing for Harlequin Special Edition—a line I loved then and still love—but I also wanted desperately to write for Harlequin Desire. I loved the intense story lines, the tight focus on the romance, and the sparks between a man and a woman who were meant to be together. It wasn’t all about passion only in the sexual sense, but in the emotional sense, too. Strong feelings simmered so close to the surface that they threatened to singe a reader’s fingers.
I was first published with Special Edition in 1992. It wasn’t until 2006 that I published my first Harlequin Desire book, with the Million Dollar Catch trilogy (The Substitute Millionaire, The Unexpected Millionaire, The Ultimate Millionaire). The pleasure I felt the first time I saw my name splashed across one of those gorgeous red covers stays with me today. The achievement of a fourteen-year dream.
Happy anniversary, Harlequin Desire, and thank you for thirty-five years of entertaining reads!
