Celebrate the New Year with January Releases, Online Mass-market Paperbacks and Walmart Stores!


Happy 2016!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. For Amie Denman, Cynthia Thomason, Pamela Tracy and me, it's an exciting time because our newest books are now officially released and available for purchchase!


But it's not just the four of us who are celebrating. In fact, all Heartwarming authors have a lot to be grateful for this year. Starting with our releases, Heartwarming books are now available as mass-market paperbacks through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and of course Harlequin.com. In addition, starting this month, our books are available in select Walmart stores in the United States, and with a special promotion of 35% off the regular price!

Since the books will appear in Walmart stores one month after their release online, the books you can currently find in Walmart stores are our December online releases: A Memory Away, The Bad Boy of Butterfly Harbor, Texas Miracle, and Into the Storm.

Watch for Under the Boardwalk, When Love Matters Most, A Boy to Remember and The Missing Twin in a nearby Walmart on February 1st! You can find the locations of the participating Walmart stores here.

These exciting developments are only possible because of our wonderful readers. Thank you so very much for your support, reviews and loyalty! These are the things that made it possible for our books to be more broadly available!

If you would like to learn about the four January Heartwarming releases, or for how to connect with Amie, Cynthia, Pamela or me, read on!

We wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!


Under the Boardwalk by Amie Denman
  
Everyone's counting on him
  
With the sudden death of his father, Jack Hamilton finds himself running the family amusement park, Starlight Point. His first job? Balance the books, and that means raising the rent for vendors like baker Augusta Murphy.
  
Gus won't accept the new contract…not without a fight. She rallies the other vendors and sets out to negotiate with Jack. At least, she tries. How do you play hardball with a man who's charming and kind and still grieving? Gus needs to figure it out fast, because the closer she gets to Jack, the more she risks losing everything.

When Love Matters Most by Kate James

Keeping her safe at all costs

Could their backgrounds be any more different? Rick Vasquez, a K-9 unit sergeant with the San Diego Police Department, fled drug-related violence in Mexico as a boy. Madison Long, who recently became primary veterinarian to the SDPD's canines, is the privileged daughter of a judge. Rick has dedicated his life to curtailing cross-border drug trafficking and preventing other young boys from being drawn into the dark world of the cartels. But everything Rick and Madison value, and the growing love between them, is threatened by the dangers of Rick's job, and the risks he's determined to take…

A Boy to Remember by Cynthia Thomason
  
You can't live a lie forever

One magical summer—that was all it took for Alexis Foster to fall deeply in love with Daniel Chandler. And then she gave him up to keep Daniel from sacrificing his own dreams. But the passionate bond they shared is rekindled when Alex returns to her family's farm…with a powerful secret.

Ohio's youngest state senator, Daniel's star is on the rise. He's also discovering a kindred spirit in Alex's seventeen-year-old daughter. Alex has to tell him the truth even at the risk of his political future…even if it costs her the two people she loves most.

The Missing Twin by Pamela Tracy

The secret between them

Angela Taylor knew her sister was in trouble. For anyone but a twin, her instincts would seem crazy, and her actions crazier. Picking up and moving her and her daughter, Celia, to Scorpion Ridge, asking questions, put them all at risk. Even more risky was trusting Jake Farraday, the handsome ex-cop turned forest ranger. Years in witness protection had taught Angela to trust no one. Yet with Abigail missing, Jake was her only hope, and she found herself wanting to share more of her past with him. And more of her future. But did Jake have his own motives for helping Angela?

  1. This is all such great news!! I looked up the WalMart stores in my city where Heartwarming books will be available. There's just two, and the nearest one is 29 minutes away, but I'm determined to take a trip there to see those books with my own eyes!! ( :

  3. I'm looking forward to kicking the head cold I got as a Christmas gift so that I can go to our WalMart to rearrange the books for better viewing without giving germs to anyone. This is such good news with the shelf space everywhere shrinking. We all need to buy some of the books and give them to avid readers.

  4. I'm so delighted that all our January authors have this opportunity - and everyone hereafter. Lovely way to start the new year - and it's absolutely gorgeous on the Oregon Coast this morning. You should all come visit me. Tea and scones at 10:30!

    2. According to the link, the only local Walmart in Massachusetts is way too far away (other side of the state) and nothing in Connecticut :(
