Today is a celebration day because it’s cover reveal day for ONE DARK WISH!
“TENDER ROMANCE… EXCITING ADVENTURE!”—PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY
ONE DARK WISH, the second book in my Deadly Force romantic suspense series, follows the struggles of a group of ex-Green Berets determined to win back their honor and protect the women they love.
This is the second cover for ONE DARK WISH, and there may have been other renditions along the way. But I think this cover beautifully represents Nate and Sarah’s love story–a love story tinged with longing, regret, and ultimately hope.
I have to give huge credit to Dawn Adams, the Sourcebooks Art Director, for going above and beyond with this cover! It’s not easy coming up with artwork for a forbidden romance that also has a National Treasure-like plot.
“One Dark Wish … everything I love in romantic suspense…Twisty plots, fantastic characters, and pitch-perfect pacing. Fabulous!”—Allison Brennan, New York Times bestselling author
I also want to send out a huge thank you to Allison Brennan and Cherry Adair for reading this book and giving me such wonderful blurbs. And another huge thank you to Brenda Novak for including EVERY DEEP DESIRE, the first book in the series, in her September subscription box the same month ONE DARK WISH comes out. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Ex–Green Beret Major Nate Walker is on a mission of his own: to restore the honor of his men. To do that, he is required to stop Sarah—or one of his own men will die. Caught in the middle of a deadly rivalry, Nate can’t afford to trust the woman standing in his way. But his heart says he can’t afford not to…

Congratulations to Rachel Grant on release #3 in her Flashpoint series. FIRESTORM is out today!
CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner fluent in Lingala to infiltrate the organization. Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn’t like her very much. He doesn’t trust her, either, despite the sparks that flare between them, fierce and hot. Still, he accepts the assignment even though their cover requires Savvy to pose as his mistress.
They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. A trail of cobalt, gold, and diamonds leads them into the heart of a jungle in which everyone is desperate to find the mother lode of ore and gems. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money, but Savvy will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.
Deep in the sultry rainforest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savvy is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to complete her mission. As they near the flashpoint, Cal will have to save her from the greatest threat of all: herself.
And here are the previous two books in this incredible, high-octane romantic suspense series.
When a food storage depot in famine-struck South Sudan is torched, American aid worker Brie Stewart flees, only to land in a market where she’s the next item up for auction. Is the attack on the aid facility another assault upon the war-torn fledgling democracy, or has her family set her up as a pawn in their quest for oil rights?
Chief Warrant Officer Sebastian Ford crossed paths with Brie years ago when she was a shill for her family’s company, pushing a pipeline that threatened his tribe’s land. Determined to lead the rescue operation to save her, he won’t let her abduction—or the attraction that flares between them—get in the way of settling their unfinished business.
The Green Beret’s skills are put to the test in the flooded grasslands of South Sudan, where they must battle nature and dangerous factions who are after more than oil. Bastian and Brie put their hearts on the line as they find themselves embroiled in a conflict that extends beyond country and continent. Together they must douse the spark before it reaches the flashpoint and engulfs everything they hold dear.
In the volatile tinderbox of the Horn of Africa, Morgan Adler has made the paleoanthropological find of a lifetime. The discovery brings her to the attention of a warlord eager to claim both Morgan and the fossils, forcing her to make a desperate dash to the nearby US military base to beg for protection.
Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life. After a harrowing afternoon he safely delivers her to his commanders, only to find his responsibilities toward protecting the obstinate archaeologist have only just begun.
Morgan and Pax are forced to work together in the Djiboutian desert heat, but it is the fire that ignites between them that threatens to combust them both. For the Green Beret, involvement with the woman he must protect is a threat to his career, while for the archaeologist, the soldier is everything she never wanted but somehow can’t resist. When Morgan uncovers a mystery surrounding Djibouti’s most scarce and vital resource, the danger to her reaches the flashpoint. For Pax, protecting her is no longer a matter of following orders, and he’ll risk everything to bring her back alive.

Happy release day, Rachel! From all your fellow Kiss and Thrill authors.
If you’ve been waiting for Gemma and Lord Cameron Lisle’s story in the Studies in Scandal series, your wait is over! Happy book release day to Manda Collins and everyone in Romancelandia who has been enjoying this delightful historical romance series (with a touch of mystery and intrigue!) One for the Rogue is a fabulous book to end this series. Here’s an overview to whet your appetite.
LOVE IS THE GREATEST DISCOVERY OF ALL
Geologist Gemma Hastings has no interest in pursuing romance―and no patience for Lord Cameron Lisle, an esteemed fossil hunter who has a way of always honing in on her territory. . .annoyingly handsome though he may be. But when a shocking attack puts Gemma in very real danger, she may have to accept Lisle’s offers of protection. Even if that means entering into a dangerous flirtation. . .
Lisle was once amused by Gemma’s dedication to her work. But now that he understands how much he’s underestimated her―a woman whose beauty is matched only by her genius―Lisle is desperate to prove his respect…and prove himself worthy of her. But is he too late? A bitter rival, desperate to steal Gemma’s scientific findings, is still at-large. Can Lisle help uncover the culprit and keep her safe―forever, in his loving arms?
Here’s what readers and reviewers are saying about One for the Rogue…
“A fine conclusion to a Regency series dedicated to celebrating the intellectual and artistic achievements of women.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Readers who like their Regency historicals smart, sexy, and served up with plenty of dry wit and a generous dollop of intrigue will find One for the Rogue, the latest sparkling addition to Collins’ Studies in Scandal series, to be a rare find.” —Booklist
“…the characters were lovable, the sexy times intense and the mystery kept me riveted.” —Stacey is Sassy (Goodreads)
“This was a delightful read and I didn’t want to put it down once I’d read the first page. Well, actually, I didn’t put it down — I read it straight through and enjoyed every minute of it.” — Barbara Rogers (Goodreads)
“This was such a fun and lovely historical to read–complete with a murder mystery, a scholarly and enigmatic matriarch, a hate-to-love romance, and an elusive fossil.” — Angie (Goodreads)
Tennessee Takedown introduced readers to the fictional town of Destiny, Tennessee and the sexy, funny detectives and part-time SWAT team of five alpha men and one kick-butt woman. Readers loved it. Tennessee Takedown won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence. And to this day, it’s still my best-selling Harlequin Intrigue.
Fabulous reader response to Tennessee Takedown resulted in the creation of an entire series in 2017 and 2018. The fifth and final installment, SWAT Standoff, releases on June 19. It’s been a fun, wild ride and saying goodbye to this series is bittersweet. I’ll miss the heroes and heroines of Destiny, Tennessee. But as I learned after Tennessee Takedown‘s release, you never know where a book – or a series – might lead. One day perhaps another new series may intersect with this one and I’ll revisit the SWAT team of Destiny, Tennessee. You never know!
A SWAT team vanishes.
Can two partners put aside their differences to save them?
Playing hero backfires on sexy SWAT team member Blake Sullivan. He infuriates his partner, Donna Waters, as much as he attracts her. But before they can resolve their differences, they discover that the rest of their team has been kidnapped by an unknown assailant. Now as they race to rescue the small Tennessee town’s real heroes, they share a growing mutual trust…and a hot, life-changing connection.

THE PICTURE OF ROMANCE
A dedicated painter, Miss Sophia Hastings is far more concerned with finding the right slant of light than in finding Mr. Right. But when an overheard conversation hints at danger for another local artist, Sophia is determined to get involved. Even if it means accepting help from an impossibly good-looking vicar who insists on joining her investigation―and threatens to capture her heart…
Reverend Lord Benedick Lisle knows that Sophia is no damsel in distress. But he won’t allow her to venture into peril alone, either…
especially since he finds Sophia’s curious, free-spirited nature so alluring. But protecting her from harm is becoming more difficult than the vicar could have expected as he and Sophia confront their fiery mutual passion. Who could have known that the art of love would prove so irresistible?
“Witty, sensual historical romance that will captivate readers.”
