Harlequin #BlazeBlitz Submissions {Guest Post by Harlequin Blaze Editor Adrienne Macintosh}

If you’re a true Harlequin fan, you know there are some plot devices that are better left to Harlequins of old (no matter what your great-aunt wrote on her death bed, you don’t have to marry a perfect stranger).

But there are some tropes that are popular for a reason, and if done in a fresh, unique way, Harlequin editors love them. I’m currently editing an amnesia story, for example, by Jill Monroe. She came up with a brilliant and sexy twist that makes the story interesting and new.

And you’d think we’d have published every cowboy romance plot possible, but our authors continue to innovate new storylines. For example, New York Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson has a new trilogy that explores foster brothers raised on ranches but who have contemporary jobs, including one who owns a microbrewery. And she’s just one of several authors who’ve got a cowboy series in Blaze. We really can’t get enough of them, and they’re all different!

Fighting Envy

Some people get a tattoo - a piece of art that enhances or reveals something about them that they like. Other people, like me, are branded by something - actions or words. "No one will ever love you, you're not worthy." Those are the words that created my blemish, my scar, my mark upon my soul. They were words whispered by the woman who should have loved me most. But in the darkest moment of my life, one where I stood abandoned and alone, one man proved to me that she was wrong.

Taint (Sexual Education #1)
by S.L. Jennings

Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:

Who am I?

And, what the hell are you doing here?

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.

by Kaylee Ryan

Trust. Five Letters. One Word.

I'm the girl who doesn't let anyone in. My world was shattered and turned upside down in one night. Since then I've been trying to live, if that's what you call it, but fighting the anxiety of what happened and trusting others is hard. Each day is a struggle to reach for the unknown.

Truth. Five Letters. One Word.

I watched my father give my mother the world and the stars. She took everything from him, then left him as a broken man with nothing to live for. I told myself I'd never fall in love. I'm guarding my heart and emotions, only looking out for number one. The only way to have truth in any relationship is to stay true to yourself.

To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one.

Game Play by Lynda Aicher {Blog Tour & Giveaway}

Game Play (Power Play #1)
by Lynda Aicher

One night, one time, nothing more. That’s all it was supposed to be. They’d agreed their first night together would be their only night together—and Minnesota Glaciers defenseman Dylan Rylie was fine with that. Giant hickeys and claw marks on his ass had never been his style, even if the very memory of Samantha Yates’s merciless sexual energy gets him hard within seconds. He needs to focus on getting a better contract, not mind-blowing orgasms.

One night, one time, nothing more. Fresh off representing the US at the Games and with nowhere else to play, Samantha gave in to one night of frantic passion with the Glaciers’ brawny hotshot. She couldn’t get hurt—not if she controlled the outcome. And she planned to leave Minnesota soon, anyway. She didn’t expect to be recruited to coach Dylan after they’d gotten down and dirty.
