What's New for 2014?

Happy New Year, everyone!

This year, I'll have four books coming out, all from Harlequin Special Edition.  I'll be winding up the Bravo Royales series and starting out The Bravos of Justice Creek series, featuring a whole new branch of the Bravo family.

First off, in May 2014, look for THE PRINCE'S CINDERELLA BRIDE.  This is Max's story. He's the oldest of the Bravo-Calabretti siblings and the heir to his mother's throne.  I have back cover copy for this one:

                             
                                         From Texas nanny…to palace princess! 

It should never have happened—the night of forbidden magic that turned Lani Vasquez and Prince Maximilian Bravo-Calabretti into lovers. After all, Lani knew all too well that an affair between a lowly nanny and the heir to the throne could only end in heartbreak—her own. Which was why she had to end it before she lost her herself completely… 

His New Year's Eve with Lani had rocked Max's world—and now the Texas beauty wanted to be just friends? The single father had sworn he'd never marry again, but Lani had charmed his children and awakened his guarded heart. Will the prince catch his Cinderella before the clock strikes midnight?


Then in July, I'll be launching the 20-year anniversary of Harlequin's Montana Mavericks series with MILLION-DOLLAR MAVERICK.  In this one, I get to take the villain of last year, Nathan Crawford, and turn him into a hero.  It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it.  Nate has a tragic past and a lot to make up for and his heroine, Callie Kennedy, is just the woman to help him with that.

And in October watch for THE EARL'S PREGNANT BRIDE.  I like to think of that one as my Downton Abbey Bravo Royale story.

Finally, in December, Aurora, the last of the Bravo Royales, gets together with the new branch of the family, The Bravos of Justice Creek, in A BRAVO CHRISTMAS WEDDING.  Aurora comes to be the maid honor for a Colorado Bravo cousin--and gets in deep and fast with mountain man, Walker McKellan.

All around, a fun year, I think.  I'll be posting everything you could want to know about these upcoming releases as information comes in at my website, ChristineRimmer.com

I hope this message finds you well and happy and surrounded by the ones you love.  May your New Year be filled with love, laughter--and great books!

Got special plans for New Years?  Leave a comment here before January 2--and I'll draw a winner from the comments for a $10 Amazon gift card!  Good luck and thanks for stopping by!
