If you’ve missed it (this would be very difficult as I’ve blared the horns already on the newsletter, Facebook, AND Twitter), the next title for Harlequin Heartwarming will be: THE BLUEBIRD BET. I don’t have a cover yet (well, I do, but no permission to show it), but here’s some hints:
Back cover copy:
Winning isn’t everything…to other people
Dr. Elaine Watson never loses. Period. So she won’t miss out on a chance to restore the Bluebird Bed-and-Breakfast. The owner’s son, Dean Collins, seems just as determined as she is. A famous photojournalist, he hasn’t been home in years, so why does he want to turn the Bluebird, a charming old B and B, into a fishing camp?
With just a few weeks to create the winning plan, Elaine has no choice but to spend time with the guy. She’s drawn to the handsome, wounded man, but being with Dean would mean giving up the future she’s been dreaming of… And Dr. Elaine Watson never gives up.
“Just meet her. I’ll show her how rundown the place is. Might be enough to convince her she’d like to build her own place somewhere out here. We could be neighbors and everyone’s happy.” His father didn’t look like he believed that either, though.
“Hard to imagine another place like this anywhere, Dad.” Dean was relieved to be back on firmer emotional footing and happy to hear his father whistle a little as he walked up the hill to the overgrown yard.
When the car door shut on a sensible gray four-door sedan, Dean watched the doctor, if she was a doctor, tiptoe carefully through the gravel in sandals that had no business outside the city streets. Instead of scrubs or a white coat, she was wearing a sundress and looked like she could be a model for a beachside getaway.
