Operation Auction – Helping a Romance Friend. . .

A few weeks ago, in an act of senseless violence, the husband of a romance enthusiast was shot and killed in North Carolina. Fatin Soufan has been a tireless supporter of the romance genre, as a reader, a reviewer, a blogger and a friend. In order to help out her and her family during this terrible time and after, romance authors, industry professionals and friends have organized or are participating in an auction to raise money for Fatin.

Autographed books, critiques, goodies, events and all sorts of things are being auctioned on eBay — here’s the link:

Please consider bidding or buying an item if you can — you’ll get a fabulous prize and it will help Fatin and her family. Thanks!

What the Duchess Wants by Terri Brisbin

Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine and Henry of Anjou (future Henry II), 1152

As one of Europe’s most powerful women, Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine has a chance most can only dream of – to choose her own husband! One glance at the young, forceful Henry of Anjou and her choice is made.

Able to match her wit for wit, Henry’s a true warrior and not afraid to disobey a royal command… But his love of life – and the bedroom – promise Eleanor a brand-new world of excitement!

I’ve included Eleanor and Henry in some of my previous Harlequin Historical romances so it was great to get the chance to go back to their real story and share that with readers!

There are seven stories altogether that will be available in digital-only formats at both the Harlequin US site and the Mills&Boon UK website on April 1st… I hope you’ll give them a try!
