I have a Harlequin Romance out this month. It's a contemporary "sweet" category romance called
Firefighter Under the Mistletoe. Based on the title, you can probably guess it's set at Christmastime. I love Christmas, and I love writing Christmas romances!
I had fun with this one. Even though I write "sweet" romances, there were lots of sparks, heat and flames in this one! The hero, Christian Welton, is a firefighter. The heroine, Leanne Thomas, is a paramedic and volunteer mountain rescuer.
Here's the back cover blurb:
Christmas magic in Hood Hamlet...
For Leanne, infuriatingly charming firefighter Christian Welton is out of bounds. Not only is he too young for her, but his trail of broken hearts is legendary. Leanne's fought hard to be one of the boys, and won't let anyone see that Christian's smile makes her want to melt into his arms!
Christian wanted to discover the softer side of the tough-talking paramedic, but hasn't counted on how much the real Leanne affects him. He's vowed never to settle down, but under the mistletoe it's certainly the season to be tempted.…
RT Book Reviews gave the story a 4:
FIREFIGHTER UNDER THE MISTLETOE (4) by Melissa McClone: Great chemistry between primary and secondary characters and a detailed rescue narrative bring this story to life. McClone revisits characters from previous novels without slowing the pace. When rescue paramedic and firefighter Leanne Thomas saves her colleague Christian Welton and his cousin after a skiing accident, unexpected sparks fly. The slow admission of their feelings fits well for a romance set in a male-dominated workplace. The revelation of past trauma in Leanne’s life makes her a character that readers will care about.I'll be posting more about my book, including an excerpt, so I hope you'll keep checking back!
