Animated Star  As you may or may not know, I have been battling Breast Cancer for two years now. I saw this quote somewhere, but it made a lot of sense to me, so I remembered it: "Use the gifts and resources given to you, and don't discount those you are not certain of in you quest for knowledge." I was recently introduced to the Pensylvania Breast Cancer Coalition through a very thoughtfully assembled Care Package. They offer the gift package called Friends Like Me Survivor Care Package to Breast Cancer survivors. If you would like to see what information they have to offer, check out their web site at least, and read the online information. I know it is for women in Pennsylvania, but there is a lot of good information contained within the pages of their site. Feel free to make a contribution if you wish.


We would welcome Gisela Woldenga to Romance at Heart Publications. She comes to us with a book that is an excellent, exciting, and delightful read. Broken Strings is a tale that comes to us from the upscale world of the symphony, with its classical music and an ending that will surprise you. Daniel has always been true to his wife, but with the coming of his new cellist, there is a conflict in his Louise's mind as to his intentions. Jealousy opens it's green eyes, and she questions just how far she can trust him in spite of his vow to her which he has never broken. Against Louise's increasing coldness, Elvira Torres, Daniel's new cellist, seems warmer and more approachable, and he falls in love. Yet there are the secrets she holds so close. Will Daniel accept the consequences or will he or Elvira end up dead? Find out the answers in Broken Strings. It is available in the store now.


For Love Of LorenzoKate has once again put her talents to work, and produced another contemporary romance that will grab your imagination, especially with Julian again gracing the cover! For Love Of Lorenzo is a tale of obsession and jealousy that is totally inappropriate. The love that Lorenzo Monferrato holds for his wife Lissa and his daughter Felice is all consuming, and when Lissa is threatened, he takes the steps to protect her. The only thing is, will that be enough? Lissa knows there is a threat from Amber, at least that is the most viable candidate, but just how far will she go to take Lorenzo from her?


We would welcome Melody Porter to Romance at Heart Publications. She comes to us with a book that couldn't be more different, yet is an excellent and delightful read. Joshua's Closet is a tale that comes to us from a college campus, an interracial tale of love, broken dreams, and an ending that will surprise you. Ryan has hurt Roni when he just walked away after a fling when they were student and tutor. Now he comes back into her life, and she questions just how far she can trust him, and what of the secrets she holds so close? Will Ryan accept the son he has never seen until now, or will he set her up for heartbreak again and reject them both? It is not an easy call to make for Roni or for Ryan, or is it?


Viking RaiderThe third and newest of Heide's books is Viking Raider, the story of Gundar Herjolfson, one of the most feared Viking warriors ever. The problem is his status, he is not recognised for his prowess in battle or for the wealth and lands he has conquered. He has been constantly rejected by those in power, and has become somewhat of an outcast and a berserker. The men he trusts know differently, but that is of little consolation to Gundar. Things soon change when he decides to ransack the French countryside, and decides some bedsport might be just the thing when he comes across a small cloister. There he storms into the place, and into the cell of one of the women. There he is drawn up short by Danielle D'Arçenau. He is hard put to decide if she is brave, foolish, or a bit of both, but only Gundar can rise to her challenge, and only Danielle can give Gundar his life back...


Bewitching AngelWe would welcome Heide Katros to Romance at Heart Publications. She comes to us with a pair of books that couldn't be more different, yet are delightful in their own ways. Bewitching Angel is a tale that comes to us from the time of the French Revolution. Amid the slaugher of the nobility, Angelique, a young daughter of a noble family escapes to an uncertain future. She has her secrets, for she can tell no one of her heritage for fear she may be killed. She is alone for the most part, and yet when she has to flee from false acusations, she finds a champion in a sea captain named Brett. Even so, she is uneasy in her heart and mind. She questions just how far she can trust him, and what of the secrets he holds so close? Could they, too, threaten her very existence?


Click, Click, DeleteThe other one of Heide's books is Click, Click, Delete, the story of greed, corporate murder, and a rivalry over a new and successful chemical formula. Amnda Brighton's father has been killed, and his legacy is putting her in danger. It is, hopefully, Chance Collins who can come to her rescue. Even with his bad boy reputation, he may be hard pressed to not to fall for the beautiful and intelligent woman even as he works to solve the mystery and the reasons and the person behind her father's murder. Then, after all is said and done, he can work on getting the girl and finding true happiness for them both.


Dark AngelHolidays always makes us nostalgic, and in that line, Kate Hofman released several fetching little tales just for the season. I hope you will let these little gems add to your reading pleasure. The newest one is Dark Angel, the story of a couple torn apart by misunderstanding and cruel gossip. The results of this could have proved to be lonely, but their meeting on the Ocean Breeze beach is actually the beginning of something so much better for Lucien Stuart and Terisha Latimer. As always, Kate has fashioned a pair of characters and a set of circumstances you won't soon forget, and a delightfully precocious two-year old as well. Immerse yourself in Kate's world filled with delight, imagination, and sensuous romantic tales.


Wait For Me, JeffRomona's Special: If you purchase Romona Hilliger's New Release, Wait For Me, Jeff, the story of a childhood love renewed as the adults meet again, and email a copy of your PayPal receipt to, you will receive a copy of Romona's Christmas short, A Blue Bird On His Shoulder by return email.

A Lover's CocktailEmma Keatley's first two delightful books of sensual and sometimes erotic poetry have been joined by a third titled Season and Colours of Love. It was released on June 25, 2009, and is still available in the bookstore where it remains a favourite. As always, it is a delightful experience reading Emma's poetry. We are delighted that Emma has found her own fanbase, and also hope you will visit Emma's Page for more about this delightful poet. We are hoping to have more from her in the future.


Looking Forward - Looking BackThe Looking Forward, Looking Back anthology gives you three delightful books in one volume by Heather Hiestand These stories grab you and take you to a place and time when people with asthma are relegated to ships off world. It is in a filtered atmosphere where the disease might be controlled, no matter what the patient's situation. And it is here that two couples decide to buck the system. Looking Forward, Looking Back is an insightful trilogy, so find out about Heather's version of love and rebellion in this future world.



LiberationAnd for those of you who just like an "Old-Fashioned Romance" set in the 1970's, try Linda Ambrosia's Liberation. It is a wonderful story of how hatred, prejudice influence some, and how the ability of love saves others. It is a coming of age tale of how loving through differences conquers fears as an unlikely romance blooms, and this love faces some pretty daunting odds in the era of the "flower children" of the late 1960's and early 70's. Liberation is an uplifting book showing the power of family, acceptance, and the triumph of the spirit. When starting over in a new country and with a new way of life, one family takes in an outcast, protects her, and makes her one of their own in more ways than one.


A Wild Love: Escape A Wild Love: Escape is a paranormal adventure short. In a world in whichShifters have been hunted to the brink of extinction, Hajj is drawn to the house he had built for his family.

He doesn't want to upset his subjects who have remained true to him even through his absence, but he is blindsided by what and who he finds residing in the house he built for his mate...


Thank you and good reading!

From the Desk of Author Romona Hilliger...

Romona Hilliger has given us another one of her delightful books dealing with the Australian Outback, a St. Valentine's Day Release. Wait For Me, Jeff, is a poignant story about how the coming of age can sepatate people. It is also about the power of love that will even carry through the sepatation to bloom on the other side.

Katherine Anderson, known as Birdie to her friends, returns to the old stomping grounds near Darwin. She has taken a temporary job as a pilot fro a friend. She is staying with a friend of the family, who also happens to be the aunt of her childhood crush. Lillian Hunter is well aware of the feelings Kate has always held for her nephew, Jeff, and tries her hand at some subtle matchmaking. In reality, she knows it is up to Jeff and Kate, and she has a hunch that Jeff's feelings run just as strongly for Kate.

Now what part will Jeff Hunter play in her life, and will he or Nathan win her heart and her love? Only time will tell if Jeff’s ex will come between them, if Nathan’s love for Kate is stronger than her love for Jeff, or if Kate and Jeff of them can overcome a decade or more of separation and come together as adults and lovers…

2007 trs capa nominee

Navajo DreamsKate had one of her books, Navajo Dreams, nominated at The Romance Studio for one of their 2007 CAPA Awards.

Navajo Dreams is the story of Dinah Greene's lifelong love for her dream of living in Arizona. This dream ultimately drew her to the desert splendour of Sedona, Arizona, and Arizona's Grand Canyon country. This provided a wonderful place to hide from a greedy and manipulative family after the death of her abusive and cheating husband.

This place of stark and sere beauty, a place where wild still reigns, offered her sanctuary. It is a place, a somewhere her greedy mother wouldn't think to look. A dizzying trip to the Grand Canyon, however, finds her in the arms of a handsome stranger, a man she wants to get to know better, if only she dares...


2007 trs capa winner

A Greek Love StoryKate did it again with A Greek Love Story! It won a CAPA Award at The Romance Studio, one of their coveted Sensual CAPA Awards for 2007.

Nissa MacLean meets her destiny when she visits, and then helps out her best friend Louise Sinclair. Louise is expecting her brother to come for a visit, and can't get the cleaning done becasue of a sprained ankle.

A Sensual Seduction In keeping with tradition of striving for excellence in her writing, Kate has revised and re-edited one of her all time favourite books here at RAHP, A Sensual Seduction, with a wonderful new cover featuring Julian Fantechi.
A Sensual Seduction is the story of Poet Adam Tremayne, and his search for the perfect love. He had found her once, but lost her when she, for some reason, left the party they both had been attending. He is now just finding out exactly who she is, and more importantly, where she is now.

Writing was a somewhat lonely career, but that was fine with Annabel Browne. She has friends who are writers, artists, and that keeps her fairly busy with a social life in her own circles. She never thought to actually meet her tall dark handsome stranger, but then the Fates are not known for their subtleties, just their quirks and tricks.

Trouble begins for Adam when he returns home from a publicity tour feeling quite ill, and unable to even manage getting into his own condo safely. His neighbour, Hank St. George, arranges for a young woman to come in and care for him. It leads to a misunderstanding that will catch Adam off guard and his shocked and appalled at her showing up to a friend’s for dinner. His reactions embarrassed himself by the vehemence of the result. Now Adam feels apologies are not enough, and yet he finds himself wanting more than just a few hellos and dinners from the shy and retiring young writer....

This edition is available in our bookstore.


A Greater Love Kate has revised and re-edited another of her all time favourite books here at RAHP, A Greater Love, with another wonderful new cover featuring Julian.
A Greater Love is the story of Rosalyn Grant, a talented writer, widowed, living alone in beautiful Ocean Breeze and loving it very much. It is a far cry from the place she used to be, putting up with a dying husband who only realized what he had in Rose when it was all coming to an end.

David MacGregor is basically fed up with the women he seems to attract. Being a very private and retiring man, he has had it with the usual dating scene, and is trying desperately to shake loose the leech that seems to have latched on to him after a fling in Jacksonville.

When Rosalyn finds herself involved as a witness of sorts in a neighbour’s suspicious and untimely death, it triggers a chain reaction involving new friends, old acquaintances, and the possibilities of a new and very unexpected love. As Chief of Police in Ocean Breeze, David is good at his job, and yet, when his second in command, Lieutenant Erin Hanrahan, realizes the attraction between the David and Rosalyn is mutual, she decides to try her hand at a little bit of matchmaking....

This edition is available in our bookstore.


Christmas Dream

Now Kate has brought us a new Christmas Story with the December Release of her book, Christmas Dream!

As he returns home after an aborted trip to the airport to pick up his mother, he stumbles upon a stranded motorist.

Cynthis Leigh is impressed with Damian’s hospitality and willingness to offer a stranded traveler a lift, even though it was out of his way. Much to her chagrin, she finds herself at his mercy once more as she finds a note on Germaine’s door. A medical emergency has taken her friend to her mother’s side in Montreal, and Cynthis is stuck without a place to stay, and it is Christmas Eve.

With over one thousand miles separating them, Cynthis never thinks to see Damian again, but when her one night of indiscretion leads her to the doctor’s office and a Christmas present she wasn’t expecting, she knows what she has to do. Even so, after all is said and done, will a Christmas fling turn into real mess or a love for all time? ...


Her Dream Lover Review

Kate Hofman continues her winning streak with her newest release of Her Dream Lover! Angela Thorne is torn apart by conflict, and that is never good for a writer. In order to escape, she has recently moved to Ocean Breeze, Florida. She is hoping for respite from a viper-tongued mother who has no concept of what it means to mind her own business.

When Luke MacLean meets Angela Thorne, all bets are off. According to his best friend, Alex Tremayne, Angela has and is currently being stalked and harassed by her ex-husband. That sets Luke’s teeth on edge, and it is something he won’t stand for, because to him, Angela is a precious commodity as a friend, and he hopes as something much more.

Will Angela and Luke be able to survive the rest of the trials their new life together will pose? Both of them being writers can pose a whole new set of problems, but that is not where the danger lies. With friends like Lisa and Alex, Adam and Mimi Stewart, and others, Angela and Luke won’t have much of a chance to fall or be torn apart, or will they?...
