Temptation Tuesday : Feel The Heat!

You know you want to...who wouldn't? Most of the Pink Heart Society editors do after all...

What am I talking about today? The ultimate temptation, writing for a developing series! Modern Heat is the newest, sexiest, sassiest line from Mills & Boon, boasting award nominated books and fabulous authors. Not bad for a line that debuted two years ago!

Editor Joanne Carr, describes Modern Heat as "a sassy, vibrant, new stream of editorial published in Harlequin Presents from aimed at a younger readership. Think of Modern Heat as Presents’ younger sister.

Sparky dialogue, urban settings and smouldering sensuality combined with original author voices - these are upbeat contemporary romances at their best! The heroines are your twenty-something girls-about-town and the heroes are alpha and to die for. We are on the look-out for new authors that can convey that young urban feel with 21st century characters, believable conflicts and, of course, write that all important hot sex!"

What does this have to do with you?
