We’re excited to feature an interview with Amy Jarecki on her latest book, THE HIGHLAND RENEGADE. Enjoy!
Q: In THE HIGHLAND RENEGADE, we meet heroine Janet Cameron. Do tell us more about her. From the blurb, she sounds like she could kick ass.
Janet is the daughter of Sir Ewen Cameron, one of the most feared Highland chieftains. She is no weakling, for with three older brothers, a lass cannot afford to be shy or weak-kneed. She has a big heart and an enormous sense of justice, and when her own brother wrongly lashes out at their father’s nemesis, Laird Grant, Janet is the first to step forward and insist that her brother apologize.
Q: What about Laird Robert Grant? How is he a swoonworthy hero?
A fierce Highland laird, Robert’s honor and loyalty to clan and kin are oft his undoing. But when it comes to Janet Cameron a wee bit of his loyalty is challenged. When she is abducted by a vile redcoat soldier, Robert casts aside an enduring clan feud and boldly rides to her rescue. An early winter storm impedes their getaway and the pair end up trapped in the mountains with nowhere to go. And who wouldn’t want to be trapped in a mountain cottage with the fiercest Highlander in Scotland?

We’re excited to feature an interview with Paullett Golden on THE EARL AND THE ENCHANTRESS. Enjoy!
Q: What draws you to write historical romance?
I love a good fairy tale! I especially love the unexpected romance when it doesn’t seem there could possibly be a happily ever after, and then somehow it works out, as if by magic.
I do believe there’s not a single moment that defines the happily ever after; for instance, the wedding bells ring, and we know in that moment they’ll live happily ever after, or the hero proposes, and we think by that proposal, all conflicts are pushed aside. I don’t buy that. I believe happily ever after is when we reach a point where we know we can resolve any conflict together.
When I finish reading a romance, I want to know the two characters will be able to tackle anything that comes their way. Despite the happy ending, I know, realistically, there will be disagreements and misunderstandings in the future, but I want to close the book knowing the two characters have established a strong enough foundation and an efficient enough method of communication, that no disagreement is insurmountable.
To me, seeing this, knowing this, gives us hope. I don’t want the completely unrealistic tale. I want the tale that shows us there’s hope for every marriage, every spinster or bachelor, every person who has ever felt broken or hopeless. I want to know we can all craft our own happily ever after.

Harlequin, the world’s largest publisher of romantic fiction, is known by its fans as a source of feel good experiences. This insight has inspired Harlequin to launch the Feel Good Project, a four-part initiative designed to explore the power of positive experiences.
“I am constantly inspired by all the heartwarming stories our fans share with us,” says Merjane Schoueri, the Feel Good Project Director. “Harlequin books have uplifted readers for decades, helping them deal with the stresses of life and, we believe, inspiring them to share this feeling with their community. Promoting feel good experiences has never been more important, and this is at the heart of the Harlequin Feel Good Project.”
