Author Karen Whiddon treats readers to a sexy spin on the Christmas grinch with her newest series romance hero, Damien Colton. Now get an insider’s look at this man who was desperately in need of a holiday miracle.
In my December Silhouette Romantic Suspense, Colton's Christmas Baby, we have Damien Colton, a man who is trying to find his way after spending fifteen years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Not only is he understandably angry and bitter, but as his large family gathers to celebrate the holiday, he feels left out and more alone than he believes he should. On top of that, he's learned his inheritance has gone missing. He was counting on that money in order to make a new life for himself.
With all of this going on, the holiday spirit has completely passed him by. In fact, he feels like everyone in town is whispering and judging him.

In the Silhouette Desire line of series romances, men tend to take the fast lane to fatherhood. And whether they are marrying women who are nine months pregnant, or suddenly learning that they have children they’ve never met, these are all men on an emotional rollercoaster. Now three of this month’s Silhouette Desire authors give readers a special look at their "Overnight Dads" of December.
Romantic suspense is full of ex-Navy SEALs and high-tech security experts. But this month the three men who are turning our heads are more of the hero next door type. Pamela Loewy's Wyatt Kelly and Joyce Lamb's John Logan are hard working police detectives, and KM Daughters' Patrick Sullivan is a police captain. They may not have flashy gadgets or untold riches to help them save the girl, but they can rescue us any day! Now Loewy, Lamb and Daughters give us a special look at these three everyday heroes who are melting our hearts.
Bestselling historical romance author Stephanie Laurens and her publisher Avon, part of HarperCollins, have teamed up to create a fun interactive online game based on Laurens' latest historical romance series, the Black Cobra quartet.

Laurens also gave readers an insider look at her series back in October with this video interview and Q&A. So even if you haven't had a chance to read Laurens' latest series, you can still enjoy Crazy Cobras.
