EXCITING Red Hot news & Comp Winners Announced!!

I got some VERY EXCITING news from my editor on Thursday... And it comes in two stages.

 Firstly, I submitted a proposal earlier this year for the new Cosmo Red Hot Reads line which is a digital first collaboration between Cosmopolitan Magazine in the US and Harlequin... These are going to be digital only books, a little shorter than series books but with lots and lots of sass and steam! With New York Times Bestseller Sylvia Day and RITA winner Sarah Morgan already signed up to write for this extremely HOT new imprint I really really wanted to be a part of it... Anyway after much nailbiting and panic over my partial, which had to go through a rather more rigorous acquisitions process than I'm used to (eventually being okay'd by Cosmo's main man in NYC) - I got the word from my ed last week that they want to buy the book I was proposing... The working title at the moment is  10 Ways to Handle the Best Man... (We're talking Four Weddings Meets 50 Shades - by way of a pushy Maid of Honor forced to handle the Best Man from Hell).. If you want a few more tantalising hints as to what happens next, check out my Pinterest board.

Secondly, I also got the go-ahead to write a Hopeless Romantic's Guide to A Great Movie Night In for the new digital first Harlequin Pop line... Once again can't wait to write this, and wear both my film journalist and my romance-landia hats at the same time!! How cool is that?

Anyway, watch this blog for more news on both projects... Now all I've got to do is calm down enough to write them!!

I would also like to say a big thank you to all those who entered my blog comp last week to win a copy of my new Harlequin KISS novel Too Close for Comfort...

So, with no more ado, the lucky winners of a signed copy of the book are:

Desere Steenberg

Ah jeez Heidi - what a way to whet an appetite! Cannot wait to read the Red Hot (me loves my sass). So to add to your seriously riveting Pinterest board - thought Kelly Brook's ex new modeling job might help (or maybe not) -

Way to go Heidi
