We're delighted to reveal the stunning covers of not one but two historical romances! First up is A Yuletide Kiss, a collection of Regency Christmas romances from Madeline Hunter, Sabrina Jeffries and Mary Jo Putney that all take place at the same country inn.
Here's the official synopsis of A Yuletide Kiss from its publisher, Kensington Books:
The reigning queens of Regency Romance return with another delightful Christmas collection of three sparkling holiday romances, as stranded travelers find merriment, mistletoe and holiday romance waiting at a quaint country inn . . .
AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS GIFT by Madeline Hunter
Jenna Waverly has closed her inn, anticipating a blissfully quiet Christmas, until a snowstorm brings the first of several strangers to her property. Lucas Avonwood, as charming as he is secretive, is on a mission to track down a scoundrel, but the inn’s lovely owner is giving him a more compelling reason to stay . . .
WHEN WE FINALLY KISS GOOD-NIGHT by Sabrina Jeffries
When Flora Younger first met Konrad Juncker, she thought she’d found her match, only to have her hopes dashed. Konrad is now a famous playwright whose plays Flora has secretly panned in reviews. But a chance meeting in a secluded inn may help them rewrite this star-crossed romance . . .
WHEN STRANGERS MEET by Mary Jo Putney
Kate McLeod is shocked to find that her fellow guest in the snowbound inn is the dashing soldier who may or may not be her husband. Daniel Faringdon barely remembers that long-ago night when he rescued her from disaster, but the desire they discover now will be impossible to forget, or to ignore . . .
A Yuletide Kiss will be available on September 28, 2021, which gives you plenty of time to pick up a copy from your local bookstore or library before Christmas! But while you wait, feast your eyes on the gorgeous cover below, which was designed by Alan Ayers.
Also coming from Kensington Books this fall is Mary Jo Putney's Once a Laird, the sixth book in her Rogues Redeemed series. Here's the official synopsis:
He yearns to escape his past . . .
After the death of his fiancée, Kai Ramsey left Scotland to roam distant lands. He has searched ancient ruins, collected priceless antiquities and escaped certain death after being imprisoned as a spy during the Napoleonic War. Ramsay has lived on the edge of danger for years—but everything changes the day a letter arrives for him from Scotland . . .
She’s determined to protect her future . . .
Signy Matheson has dedicated her life to the people of Scotland’s remote Thorsay Islands. With a fiery spirit and agile mind, she is a faithful ally to the aging laird. But now their leader is near death, and Signy must summon the laird's successor at once. It’s time for Kai Ramsey to come home . . .
Together, they discover ancient treasures and disturbing attraction . . .
When Ramsay returns to Thorsay, he’s shocked to find that Signy has blossomed into an alluring beauty and a force to be reckoned with. Their complicated past interferes with their unspoken desire as they work together for their people—until a wild storm sparks first passion, then unexpected danger when a treasure trove left by their ancestors comes to light . . .
You'll be able to experience Ramsay and Signy's love story on October 26, 2021, when Once a Laird is available everywhere! To tide you over, here's the beautiful cover designed by Jon Paul.
