Out May 11 - Harlequin Showcase

I'm so jazzed about this new program Harlequin is launching for North America. If you hadn't heard yet, they're now re-releasing some backlist series books by popular authors in a two-in-one single title mass-market format being sold as Showcases. My book, The Sicilian's Marriage Arrangement will be one of the launch titles out May 11. To celebrate, I had COS Productions make a cover story video. Isn't it gorgeous?

Not a bad promo, Lucy. Saw it on your website since when I clicked on it in this post, it said it was removed by the user.

Nice music. Nice message, which makes me intrigue. :)

Lucy Monroe said...

Thanks, erahime! I've fixed the link - apparently COS uploaded a crisper version to YouTube. :)

Judy said...

Great book trailer! And even better since I know it fits. (This title was my first Lucy Monroe Presents. :-) Didn't take long to catch up on all of them.)

Beautiful video! A true compliment to the book. I just love, love, love Hope's story. Actually, the trailer is quiet, understated and beautiful just like Hope. :)

The Sicilian's Marriage Arrangement is one of my all time favorite Harlequin presents book!
I find myself rereading it whenever I need an emotional story.

Great video!


Lucy Monroe said...

Judy...really? How neat. It's one of my faves because Hope is so vulnerable and I'm rooting for her throughout the book. Luciano is an ultra-alpha though for sure. :)

Valerie...that's it exactly! Thanks! :)

Moran...thank you! That means the world. :)

Nice trailer! I remember reading the book and now have to dig it up to re-read it.

From what I remember, Hope was devastated when she found out what Luciano thought (I am trying not to spoil the book here for those who haven't read it yet.)

And yes, for an alpha, Luciano did manage to show how he felt by his actions.

Fabulous story!
Lidia :-)

I re-read it this afternoon too. :) The first LM book I read was Silver Bella (could it really have been 6 years ago!), I actually bought the anthology for the MaryJanice Davidson story, and fell in love with Bella and Jake. I can't tell you how many times I've re-read their story especially when Lise's book came out. :) Talk about immediate must buys. I remember the next year it seemed like every few months there was another release! Ah, 2005, that was a really good year. LOL

Lucy Monroe said...

Lidia...I kept thinking as I read it over again, "This guy is way alpha." But he was also protective - even when he didn't want to be. :)

Valerie...that is so cool that Silver Bella turned you onto my stories. Some novellas really work and when they do, they don't feel like they need to be longer. Does that make sense? 2005 *was* a banner year for releases. LOL

Valerie said...

I know what you mean about some novellas really working. I know it's very hard to tell a story with so few words (at least for me! LOL).

Jake and Bella were definitely one of the ones that worked though. Jake was such a strong character that you knew at the end no matter what he was going to make Bella happy and she him. :)

I really like the booktrailer - don't know how I missed your book so far, but I will change that soon!!
greetings, Ina

Toni said...

I loved the video and will have to look in the used bookstore for this book. Looking forward to next week tool.


Lucy Monroe said...

Valerie...that's exactly how I want you to feel when you finish the story (or any of my stories), so THANKS! :) was an earlier release and I'm thrilled they're bringing it out again so more readers get a chance to experience Hope and Luciano's story.

Toni...the book is being re-released on May 11 (hence the spankin' new trailer ) as a Harlequin Showcase with another story from Julia James - 2 for 1, can't beat that, not even at USB prices. ;-)
