Oct 9, 2019

You’re getting a very sneaky peek at very new and exciting news!

Cinderella’s Royal Seduction is wearing a fancy new ballgown! The fairy godmothers at Harlequin have been hard at work redesigning the covers for all the Harlequin lines. This is what the new Presents covers will look like. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I’ve used the Larger Print cover here because that’s all they’ve given me so far, it’s that new. But I’m in love with Sopi and Rhys and everything about this cover so I had to share. Here’s the blurb:

His until midnight

Will she wear his crown?

Sopi is exhausted! With Prince Rhys Charlemaine staying nearby, the luxury spa she calls home is overflowing with aspiring princesses! It’s frantic…until working all hours leads to a late-night encounter with charismatic Rhys himself…

Untouched Sopi gives herself one chance to feel like a princess in Rhys’s arms. She knows it cannot go further, until Rhys stuns her with his convenient proposal! He promises exquisite pleasure, but Sopi has seen the man behind his royal mask—dare she believe he wants her for more than desire?

Who is the man in the mask?

Oct 1, 2019

Bound by Their Nine-Month Scandal is available from Harlequin and Mills & Boon today!

Pia turned into one of my favorite heroines. She’s hideously introverted, which I can relate to. Angelo is a rakish charmer so I adored him, too. Here’s the official blurb:

Her bombshell: “I’m pregnant.”

His demand: “Marry me…”

Painfully insecure and media-shy heiress Pia is duty-bound to marry well. So illegitimate Angelo is completely unsuitable husband material. Yet this irresistible Spanish tech tycoon seduces Pia with an evening of bliss…that leaves her pregnant!

Pia can’t afford a scandal, but Angelo wants to publicly claim his heir. Now to control the headlines, Pia must wed the only man who has ever made her feel. With Angelo posing a danger to her well-guarded heart, can she step into the spotlight—with the wedding of the century?

Discover the intense passion of this surprise pregnancy romance!

This is the final instalment in my Montero Siblings. Read more about the linked books and download a sampler here. Or start reading now.

You’ll see this one on shelves in a couple of weeks and it will release on all digital platforms November 1st.

Did you hear that? It’s the sound of my first audio book.

Sep 28, 2019

Don’t get too excited. This is only the opening five minutes, but I was thrilled to discover it was available so I wanted to share. The full audio book comes out November 1st.

Listen to the sample of Bound by Their Nine-Month Scandal here.

And please don’t laugh too hard when I tell you how I found out this sample was available. I stumbled across it on Twitter where it had been posted by a sleep doctor. I don’t know what that says about this book, but I’m still excited.

Also don’t laugh when I tell you I came *this close* to posting this with the type Bound by Their Nine-Month Sample.

As you’ll glean from the audio, it opens at a masked ball where Pia allows herself to be seduced by a mysterious stranger. Of course she winds up pregnant, but she doesn’t know who he is. Angelo is actually not on the guest list and he’s there to rob the place so things get tricky when she finally catches up to him.

If you’re not into audio and want the actual book (or digital) Bound by Their Nine-Month Scandal will be available early from Harlequin and Mills & Boon on October 1st.

Find it everywhere else on November first.

Fun! A Secret New Manga Edition

Sep 23, 2019

I’ve just realized a new manga edition of The Secret Beneath the Veil came out last Sunday. Yes, it was even a secret from me!

This romance has one of the most dramatic openings I’ve ever written. Viveka takes her sister’s place at her arranged-marriage wedding. When the veil comes up, Mikolas realizes he’s been tricked. Viveka runs away to a waiting boat, but falls into the water and gets weighed down by her dress! Hold your breath, hold your breath… (Spoiler: Mikolas jumps in to save her.) Then a bunch of other stuff happens including sexy times.

How did this book come about without my knowledge? It just does. Amid the author-ly halls of forums and online chat groups, there’s always much debate about which is better, indie-publishing or traditional. I’ve done both and there are great things to be said about self-publishing, but I cannot express enough how much I love the team at Harlequin Mills & Boon for simply doing the work behind the scenes in making new versions of my books available. Especially mangas. The artwork is always so gorgeous!

The Manga He Must Keep

Aug 17, 2019

Fun news! The first book in my popular baby swap duet, The Marriage He Must Keep, has been turned into a Manga! I adore these. The artwork is so beautiful.

I do sometimes think the title should say something like ‘inspired by,’ though. The stories often get changed up quite a bit. Here’s the blurb of the manga with the blurb from the original story below it.

Marriage He Must Keep Comic by Dani Collins

 

The beautiful wife is played by two men in a faceoff of love and jealousy…

Shy Octavia marries Italian businessman Alessandro under her father’s orders. Their initial plans was for her to marry his cousin Primo, but he turned her down. She had been fortunate enough to be proposed to by Alessandro. He loved her day and night and she eventually fulfills her desire to become pregnant, but is shocked when he tells her to go to London on her own to have the baby delivered by a noted doctor. Why doesn’t he want to be with her?

Octavia had a reason to be concerned. Primo had told her the truth about her marriage and a certain plan that Alessandro had.

Original:

Claiming his heir

When Alessandro Ferrante dutifully married shy heiress Octavia, it was a pleasant surprise to discover that his convenient bride was as sweetly sensual as she was beautiful. But when their newborn baby is swapped at the hospital, their fragile marriage reaches crisis point.

…and his wife!

With her baby safely back in her arms, the revelation that Alessandro’s family was involved leaves Octavia wanting nothing more to do with him. But Alessandro won’t take no for an answer…after all, in the bedroom she always said yes! He will seduce his wife again and ensure Octavia—and his child—are his forever!

Sounds like quite a different story, doesn’t it? I don’t mind, I just find it fascinating. Plus, it gives me something new to read in my very own story! Have you read many of the Harlequin comics? What’s your experience with how closely they mirror the original story?

Time to Celebrate – The Maid’s Spanish Secret Releases Today!

Aug 1, 2019

Hooray! The Maid’s Spanish Secret should be downloading to your eReader today. If you haven’t received it, you can find all the links here.

In The Maid’s Spanish Secret, Canadian Poppy has a fling with her boss’s son the day before she leaves Spain. By the time she realizes she’s pregnant, Rico is married to another–but he was betrayed by his wife and is carrying a bitter secret after her death.

When Rico discovers he has a child by Poppy, he arrives to claim her, but he wants Poppy as well. Can they make a marriage of convenience work when they’re essentially still strangers… and his heart is so closed off?

From Goodreads:

“I loved reading their insecurities of being back together… I loved seeing a transformed Poppy. I liked the fact she gained confidence but she didn’t change herself.” 5/5 Stars, Xai Xai, Goodreads

“Dani Collins nabbed my attention right away and took me on an exhilarating ride filled with emotional baggage, passionate encounters and an underlying good heart in each of the characters. Really enjoyed their well-written story!” 5/5 Stars, Lynn, Goodreads


Look for Rico’s sister, Pia, in November in Bound by Their Nine-Month Scandal.
