From the Happy Ever After Specialists I'm happy to present Harlequin's February Special Edition Showcase!
Sophie Fortune Robinson is on a mission. The word around the office watercooler is that the boss's youngest daughter is intent on landing Mr. Right by Valentine's Day—and that she has her eyes, and heart, set on a certain hunk in Marketing. But when she enlists her longtime pal and coworker Mason Montgomery to teach her how to get a man to notice her, little does she know she's already captured his attention!
Now Mason's in a real bind! He has just a few short weeks to fight his way out of the "friend zone." On his agenda: convincing sweet Sophie that he is the real man of her dreams! Will Fortune smile on true love's venture?

Forgiveness starts with a stolen kiss
Chief of police Trent Knight had it all until an accident took his wife and he was left alone to raise two beautiful girls. Now the person he always blamed for his loss is back in town, and all bets are off. But soon his anger toward Carmen Shields gives way to a very different emotion—awareness of Carmen as a woman. On one hand, it feels like a betrayal of his late wife's memory. On the other, it could be his second chance at life—and Carmen's shot at redemption. Maybe she can go home again—with the help of a certain lawman…

Stir two hearts…and let simmer
Private investigator Carson Ford specializes in finding people. Yet his latest case has him stumped—he's looking for a mystery woman who's supposed to be his wealthy, widowed father's "second great love." But the pragmatic single dad knows that's not how love works! This is an elaborate swindle…and it starts with the fortune-teller's daughter.
All chef Olivia Mack can do is confirm that her late mother's predictions were usually true. What she won't admit is that she might know who the mystery woman is—or that she's finding herself falling for the handsome, cynical Carson, not to mention his adorable son. She has always limited her "family gift" to her cooking. Now she just has to hope that her magic secret ingredient will lead to love…
PLAYING HOUSE OR PLAYING FOR KEEPS?
Motorcycle-riding judge Wyatt Carter runs his life by the book…mostly. But when his old friend Amber Towers calls him in need, he doesn't hesitate to help her, even though inviting the single and secretly pregnant lawyer to stay in his house has suddenly made him the scandal of Conard County!
Wyatt is the port in Amber's stormy situation. Even though their friendship sizzles with an underlying attraction, she has to steer clear, because she is pregnant—and he is headed into an important election! But why, this time, does it seem like Wyatt and Amber are willing—no, eager!—to give the town something to talk about?

A ranch for the runaway bride
Weeks before her wedding, Emily Weber walks away from her planned society shindig and her cheating fiancé—straight to her cousin's New Mexico ranch. Everyone's advice: Emily's got to work it out of her system, and her childhood acquaintance—all six feet of dark good looks—is just the guy to help.
Colin Talbot recognizes someone on the run from their life. Hell, the rootless photojournalist hasn't been on his ranch in years, till now. But he's not about to indulge in a promise of pleasure, not with a potential for disaster. Emily still wants marriage and babies; he can't wait to bolt. So he'll keep his distance before she has him wanting what he can't have: a family and a forever love.
The start of a new chapter?
Braden Garrett felt blessed the instant his adopted baby girl was laid in his arms. Fifteen months later, the widowed CEO feels out of place as the only man at the local library's toddler music class! Until his gaze falls on the librarian. Beautiful Cassie MacKinnon sparks a desire he'd long forgotten…but why can't he convince her to go out with him?
After a disastrous broken engagement, Cassie's given up her dreams of white picket fences. That is, until tall, dark and sexy Mr. Garrett sparks fantasies of a different kind! Tempting as Braden is, though, Cassie is afraid the single dad only sees her as a substitute mommy. Or is the dedicated daddy offering everything she's ever wanted—true love and family—in one perfect package?
I hope you've enjoyed this showcase
Happy Valentine's Day!!
