Heartsong Presents June New Releases

My sixth contemporary Christian romance book with Harlequin’s Love Inspired Heartsong Presents line, Seaside Proposal, was released last month. Today I’m posting information on the new Heartsong Presents releases for June. The June books are also the final books being published under the Heartsong Presents imprint. I’ve appreciated the opportunity to start my publishing career with Harlequin and the Heartsong line. My agent, Steve Laube, wrote a lovely tribute last year on Heartsong’s Publishing Legacy.

RAQUEL MARRIS NEEDS A MAN WHO’LL STAY PUT

Slade is taking a hiatus from the rodeo circuit to meet the sister he never knew he had. But the pretty widowed nurse next door is making him think twice about hitting the road again. He can’t turn his back on the cowboys who need him, but Raquel and her boy need him, too. Can Slade fulfill his calling and finally find a place to hang his hat?
