Showcase - August Harlequin Presents

The Harlequin Presents line scratches a more exotic itch for that certain romance lover who wanted to marry a prince, king or Sultan when she was a child and for those of us who've as adults had dreams of taking a walk of shame with a Sheikh! The Presents line have been making those romance dreams come true since 1973 and today gives fans 8 new titles each and every month!
I hope you enjoy my showcase of Harlequin's August Presents series line!




"You owe me a honeymoon."

Addie Farrell's marriage to casino magnate Malachi King lasted exactly one day, until she discovered their love was a sham. Now, with funding for her children's charity about to be cut, Addie must face her husband—and their dangerously seductive chemistry—once again!
Humiliated and frustrated after Addie's sudden departure, Malachi seizes the chance to put the power back where it belongs: in his hands. The deal: Malachi will give her the money she desperately needs, if she returns to his side…and finally he will claim his long-awaited wedding night!




Uncaging the lion of the desert…
Sheikh Shazim Al Q'Aqabi is horrified to discover that the woman who will execute his late brother's conservation dream is the exotic dancer he encountered in London!
But Isla Sinclair's feisty nature is like a cool glass of water in the desert to the unchallenged ruler. For his entire life, Shazim's only mistress has been duty. Now he's considering a far more pleasurable way to spend his nights under the desert stars.
Yet acting on his desire for such an unsuitable woman would be tantamount to treason! Shazim will have to make the hardest decision of his life…

The secret she kept from the prince…
Dress designer Lisa Bailey reluctantly broke off her relationship with Luc, knowing an affair with the prince had no future. But one last stolen encounter left her quaking with passion, drenched in desire and unexpectedly pregnant!
Months later, Prince Luciano Leonides of Mardovia is on the brink of the perfect political marriage when a news article shows Lisa with an obvious bump! His baby. With Mardovian royal blood. Now he must claim his heir at any cost. She may be an unsuitable bride but she will become his queen!
When one night…leads to pregnancy!




"This antique box can be my wedding gift to you."
Charity CEO Allegra Di Sione can't fail in her mission to retrieve her grandfather's beloved box from Sheikh Rahim Al-Hadi, which is why she gets caught in Rahim's sumptuous bedroom trying to steal it!
Seducing the gorgeous sheikh is her only chance at escape! But when Allegra slips away the next morning, she's unaware she now carries something infinitely more precious—and that when Rahim finds out, he'll have no choice but to make his enticing thief his queen!

The man she loves to hate…
Most women would kill to be draped in ivory lace and walking up the aisle toward King Kostas Laskos. Stella Constantinides isn't most women. But for peace in her kingdom, she's agreed to marry the man she once bared her heart to with disastrous effect.
The feisty princess refuses to be his pawn, yet one night in their marriage bed proves that Stella will never be immune to her husband's charms. Soon Stella begins to see a truth behind the sins of their past…and she finds herself doing what she swore she'd never do—fall for her husband!





What happens in Monte Carlo…
Ten years ago bookshop assistant Clementine Scott clashed spectacularly with architect Alistair Hawthorne. After the humiliation of that night she swore she'd never have anything to do with any man ever again, especially the arrogant Alistair!
But when Clem's brother disappears with Alistair's stepsister, she isn't given a choice…she will be going with Alistair to Monte Carlo to retrieve them! Forced together for one week, they quickly realize that their enmity masks simmering, sizzling lust. They strike a deal: for one week only, all bets—and clothes—are off!





Once forbidden, now for bedding!  
Greek billionaire Leon Carides has it all: wealth, power, notoriety, even a wife—though he's never touched his convenient, innocent bride. Then an accident rids this damaged, debauched playboy of his memories… 
Leon remembers nothing, except his wife's sparkling blue eyes. Now the desire he feels for Rose overrides the gaps in his past, making her impossible to resist! But when his sins catch up with him, can Rose forgive the mistakes of the man he once was? Or will Leon lose more than just his memory?




His most challenging conquest
When you're as handsome, dynamic and wealthy as British tycoon Jeremy Barker-Whittle, there's no shortage of stunning women willing to share your bed. So when Alice Waterhouse says no, it's a challenge the jaded playboy can't refuse.
But discovering Alice's carefully guarded innocence brings an end to Jeremy's thoughts of briefly stolen passion. The cynical CEO must put aside this delicate beauty…until Alice shocks him by asking him to take her virginity!
As Jeremy toys with the temptation to be the first man to show Alice pleasure, he's unaware that she could be the first woman to tame him…
