Heidi Rice... USA Today Bestseller!!

Woohoo!! There's snoopy dances galore in North London today with the release of the latest USA Today bestseller list and the news that Public Affair, Secretly Expecting has hit the top 100 (at 100, but who's counting right??).

Can not believe it. I'm so excited and feeling ever so slightly smug. Who said you can't do movie star heroes in category romance? All you have to do is make them Irish and super-sexy and all moody and intense and articulate like Colin Farrell and you're all set (cheers Colin, what a great muse you turned out to be). All right, I'll shut up now before my head gets so enormous it starts lolling onto the keyboard.

Am also sending my Modern Heat stable mate Kelly Hunter a high-five who's RT top pick book Exposed: Misbehaving with the Magnate also made the list. Yay Kelly! And here's another high-five to Kate Hardy whose latest Good Girl or Gold-Digger? got a coveted 5-star review from Cataromance.

It's official: Modern Heat Rocks!

Sally, Janette, Kim, Kate and Joanne... thanks so much for the congrats. Oops think my head just got even bigger.

And Kate, you're welcome for the high-five, have your book in my teetering TBR pile and will be sneaking it into my luggage for my trip to the USofA next week!

I'm STILL astounded that movie star heroes are suppose to be a no-go areas. Proved them wrong :D !

Heidi -- just finished reading Public Affair, Secretly Expecting and loved it! I especially loved Mac your celebrity hero -- why can't we have more movie stars/rock stars in books? I loved Daisy and Connor's story too, but Mac and Juno were really special.

Looking forward to reading your new one.

Cheers,
Emmie

Thanks so much you guys.

and Emmie glad you liked Mac and Juno's story... And yes, they were a bit special to me too! Now, if I could get a rock star hero into a Presents novel I feel my work would be done!
