Shameless Self-promotion (day 2 of 2) - Back to Normal Posts Tomorrow

Back in the year 2000, I was asked to take part in the well known and beloved Montana Mavericks series, one of the most popular continuity series Harlequin has published. Just Pretending would be part of a 4-book series that would be available only by direct mail. I have to tell you, I loved writing that book! There was a murder investigation, tension, romance, Montana, a strong heroine and a super hot hero. What more could an author ask for? And to top it off, they gave the books great covers. A short time later, all 4 books were released (in stores this time) in 2 big 2-in-1 volumes. Again, the covers were gorgeous. Here's the original Just Pretending cover and the follow-up 2-in-1 (called Montana Bred, which included my Just Pretending and Christine Scott's Storming Whitehorn).



Now the 4 books are being released again (and again with wonderful covers). Here's the new cover of Just Pretending, followed by the other 3 books in the series. (If you click on the images you'll be taken to the Amazon paperback versions, although all are available as Kindle ebooks and Nookbooks).









I'm very happy for these books to be back in print, and if you get a chance to read them, I hope you enjoy them!

Best Wishes and Happy Reading! (Tomorrow I'll be back to my regular posts)http://www.amazon.com/Storming-Whitehorn-Montana-Mavericks-Christine/dp/0373362366/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1301938063&sr=1-1

It must be rather lovely to have books come back into print. Like good friends coming back for a visit.

Hi, Myrna! I just bought a copy of "Just Pretending", and I am looking at right now as I type. Ladies, ladies, ladies! If you think this cover looks good on your computer screen, wait until you see it in person! This is one gorgeous and compelling cowboy--love the intensity! The characters and story line sound quite intriguing : )

Mary, it is like having a good friend coming back for a visit. And this one was a surprise. I wasn't expecting it, so doubly nice.

Virginia, I had to fan myself when I saw the cover! Did they do a nice job or what? That man is the epitome of "cowboy". I hope you enjoy the book (it's the 3rd book in the continuity, so...the main mystery thread doesn't get solved here, but the romance is complete in this book).

That is one niiiice cover! It is great to see books get another chance... to be shared with more people! Congrats!

Myrna Mackenzie said...

Colleen, isn't it amazing? (I feel comfortable saying that since I had absolutely nothing to do with the cover). Whoever designed it, I'd say they found the perfect man for the job! He looks like he was born in the saddle.

Born in the saddle, you say, Myrna? Well, if I weren't happily married, I'd like to horse around with him! Like Virginia said, I too "love the intensity" in his look.

He's a looker, isn't he? I have to say that the covers have gotten better over the years...although my very first cover was a nice one. Shirtless guy, nice back, very hot and yet romantic, too. I don't know who let that one slip through for the traditional line (where men never seem to take their shirts off), but I'm forever grateful.
