Mother’s Day Price Drop! What the Greek’s Wife Needs

Apr 29, 2022

One of my favorite books will be on sale for $1.99 until May 8th on North American platforms.

What the Greek’s Wife Needs is perfect for Mother’s Day. Tanja is days away from divorcing Leon, but she needs to be married to adopt Illi. They reconcile, but it’s rocky. Tanja is still angry that Leon left her family high and dry five years ago.

Leon left to protect Tanja from the worst of his father’s criminal behaviour. He rescued the family fortune, but all she sees is that he has cash to spare while she has been scraping by, trying to provide for her daughter.

The one thing he can give her is the ability to adopt so they decide to stay married. Temporarily. The problem is, their chemistry is still off the charts and Leon soon falls for both of them.

Here’s the official blurb:

She wants to be his wife…

…but only on paper!

Tanja’s whirlwind marriage to Leon Patrakis is over. She hasn’t seen him since he returned to Greece five years ago. Yet, to keep the baby daughter she’s adopting, Tanja has a last request: she and Leon stay wed…in name only.

Leaving behind his exhilarating connection to Tanja wasn’t easy for Leon. Yet, to shield her from his family’s notorious reputation, he had no choice. He can’t reject Tanja’s request to make her dreams of a family come true. But ignoring their still-smoldering electricity? Impossible!

Fun fact: This was also my fortieth book!

Big News! A New Cover and a New Direction

Apr 27, 2022

Humor and romance collide in USA Today bestselling author Dani Collins’ all-new western series, starting with a mail order bride’s unexpected arrival in 1859 Colorado…

I am so excited to share that I’ve signed a two-book deal with Entangled: Amara for a pair of Western Historical Romances.

I would actually call them romantic comedy. (In fact, I have, in my newsletter when I was being cagey about what I was working on.)

I modelled my hero, Virgil, on James Garner in Support Your Local Sheriff. He’s a reluctant hero, tough and smart, but he has a chewy-soft centre, especially where his three children are concerned (even though he doesn’t have a clue how to parent them.)

Virgil places an ad for a mail-order bride and is delighted when he gets a response from a well-educated young lady who describes herself as cheerful and kind.

That would be Marigold’s sister. Marigold is divorced, recently had her house burned to the ground, and took her sister’s place at the last moment out of sheer desperation. Virgil is not thrilled.

They strike a deal and he takes her to Quail’s Creek, the camp where he and his partners mine for gold while she minds his children.

All this gold prospector needed was a nice, practical wife. Instead, a society darling divorcée takes her sister’s place as a mail-order wife, desperate for a new husband. They’re both about to get more than they bargained for…

I can’t wait for you to get your hands on The Prospector’s Only Prospect! It will release in print and digital March 28, 2023.

Another Stunning New Cover from Harlequin

Mar 17, 2022

How sexy is this cover for Innocent in Her Enemy’s Bed?

I’m deeply in love with how they’re sprawled on the bed in the master stateroom of Leander’s yacht. He and Ilona have quite a tryst there during their engagement party. Not all the fireworks are outside, you know. (wink!)

When I wrote this one, I wanted to get back to the heart of a Harlequin Presents, a good ol’ enemies to lovers, Greek magnate and a virgin, a hero on a collision course with his own desire for vengeance and a heroine who saves them both by offering up her heart. Here’s the official blurb:

Keeping her enemy close…

…means getting far closer than she thought!

Ilona Callas is aware that Leander Vasilou will do anything for revenge against her stepfamily. She just never pictured herself becoming the formidable Greek businessman’s ally! Yet uniting with Leander will give Ilona freedom and financial independence for the first time.

Since clawing his way to the top after being betrayed, Leander exists alone. Ilona should be his ticket to vengeance…until an explosive moment of intimacy changes everything. So begins a sensual back-and-forth that will lead to one place: their marriage bed!

Innocent in Her Enemy’s Bed releases July 26th. (June 1st if you buy on Harlequin.com.) Pre-Order here.

Supply Chain Issues

Jan 23, 2022

A quick point of clarification on One Snowbound New Year’s Night

Digitally, this book has been available on all platforms since Dec 28th. In North America and Australia, the print books also released as normal, but there was a supply chain issue in UK and Ireland that affected the January and February print titles.

The February books went on sale in January and my January book, One Snowbound New Year’s Night will be on shelves now. (Honestly, given the many supply chain issues and retail workers who became sick through year end, you may only be seeing this book in North American stores now.)

Good news, you can order the print online and in the UK, it will even be a two-in-one that looks like this. Sexy, right? Here’s the blurb:

Their last night as husband and wife, or the beginning of something new?

Their New Year’s Eve reunion…
…could make or break their marriage!

Rebecca Matthews has one New Year’s resolution: divorce Donovan Scott. So being snowbound with him at his mountain mansion is not part of the plan. Especially when it’s clear the sizzling chemistry that led to their elopement is still very much alive!

Van wants to know the real reason Becca left—it’s clear there’s more to tell. With only twenty-four hours before the snowstorm clears, it’s time for them to gain some much-needed closure. That’s if, of course, they can resist a final explosive encounter…

USA TODAY bestselling author Dani Collins delights with this passionate forced-proximity romance.

Fun Fact: One Snowbound New Year’s Night takes place in one twenty-four hour period.
