Foreign Edition Fun by Amie Denman

Did you know Harlequin surprises its authors sometimes? In a very good way. I was pleasantly surprised to learn my book Under the Boardwalk would be paired with an author from across the ocean in a Mills & Boon Forever Romance Duo.  My bookmate is Katrina Cudmore (from Ireland!) with her wonderful contemporary romance Swept Into the Rich Man's World. It's powerful, romantic, and swept me off my feet! Lucky me, Harlequin sent me several copies of our shared book, but I didn't know they were coming. What a great surprise when I opened the box!

Here are our two books with their original covers:



And here we are together!

I have to admit I'm delighted the Australian version used my cover image. Notice it's a little different: the characters are reversed and it's a closeup image, but I love them just as much!

Harlequin is immensely supportive of its authors, and I feel like I've gained a family. I certainly have a new book sister, and I hope you'll visit the fabulous author Katrina Cudmore for your next romance.

  1. The cover does look terrific, Amie. Isn't it great when you get two releases for one book!

  2. Amie, so exciting! Both the titles and the cover would make me want to pick up a copy. And what could be better than Ireland and the US together in Australia(;

  9. Love the cover and sharing space with another writer is great fun. I got to be with Kate James a few months ago.

  10. Getting books in the mail is always a treat, so it must be especially so when one of them is your own coupled with another great author. That cover is so inviting and fun. Congratulations!!
