Blurb:

He’s a CIA agent. She’s a bartender at her family’s pub. That’s no big deal, unless her brother is a dangerous criminal.

Elias Nader is on temporary assignment in Washington State, helping the FBI build a database of Americans suspected of chatting with foreign terrorists. When he sees pretty young Angela Stan, he’s thunderstruck, in lust, and in love. Instantly. It doesn’t matter who she is…until it does.

But when a baby is on board, a hardened spy has to take care of his lady, even if that means a Wedding with a Baby Bump.

Get Your Spy Lovin’! New Release: I Wanna Be Loved By You by Heather Hiestand

I Wanna By Loved By You is finally here, and my first review for it was so incredibly kind and spectacular that I have to share a snippet with you! I hope everyone enjoys Sadie’s adventure as much as this reviewer did.

“I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU is exceptionally well researched, and the author’s unparalleled attention to detail takes us back in time… I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU is very fast-paced, and exciting; it was easy to identify with Sadie, as I had the feeling of living the spy story as she did. The romance and the suspense are intrinsically linked, and very deftly so; the romance is quite complicated, but very realistic, and the spy story is fantastic, again because of those period details…The characters are superbly crafted, the writing is impeccable, the era’s popular expressions and cultural references are invariably accurate; the dialogues are flawless, and the author possesses a perfect grasp of the era’s social and moral codes.”

–Goodreads

Blurb:

For a young woman swept into international adventure, romance can’t be far behind…
 
The 1920s are in full swing when Sadie Loudon leaves her grandfather’s stodgy vicarage, and she dreams of the glamour and excitement she’s seen on the silver screen. But before she even begins work at the storied Grand Russe Hotel, she is ushered into London’s glittering nightlife by a handsome young businessman intent on introducing her to the pleasures available to a Bright Young Thing. Is it a fleeting romance…or something even more intriguing?

Les Drake is on the lookout for Bolsheviks when he encounters sweet, sexy Sadie. A British Secret Intelligence agent, Les has more experience with the seedy underside of the city than with innocent chambermaids, but he can’t deny that Sadie tempts him. Using her as part of his cover seems like a brilliant plan until the danger of his assignment threatens what has suddenly become a love he can’t bear to lose…

BOOK CLUB READING GUIDE for I Wanna Be Loved By You by Heather Hiestand

I Wanna Be Loved By You200x300

I’m gearing up for the Valentine’s Day release! http://heatherhiestand.com/books/i-wanna-be-loved-by-you/ Sadie and Les are going to knock your socks off!

BOOK CLUB READING GUIDE for I Wanna Be Loved By You by Heather Hiestand

 Spies feature prominently in I Wanna Be Loved By You. Who is your favorite spy character in fiction?

  1. Given that the hero in this book, Les Drake, is a spy, he lies continuously to the heroine. Do you think someone who works undercover can ever be a reliable romantic partner?
  2. Sadie is a madcap heroine who does things like go on a several-hour train ride with a man she barely knows for a date. If you are really feeling the spark with a man, how much risk would you take to go on a date with him?
  3. Sadie was orphaned as a pre-teen and raised by elderly grandparents. How would this affect your outlook on life?
  4. Sadie has spent her life living with her older sister. All of a sudden, when she’s nineteen, her older sister moves away, leaving her without her best friend and support system. What life changes might you make under those circumstances?
  5. Sadie is surprised to hear her date’s accent changing as he interacts with other people. Would this be a red flag for you? What other red flags might make you want to end a date?
  6. Sadie flings caution to the wind to some degree because it’s her birthday and she’s lonely. What kind of birthday present would you consider acceptable from a date you don’t know very well?
  7. What kind of behavior do you like best from a work supervisor? This book is set in 1925 and I imagined a fairly paternalistic relationship between Sadie and her boss, Peter Eyre. How do you think work relationships have changed in the past ninety years?

The Princess Dilemma, a royal Victorian romance, by Heather Hiestand #Newrelease #KindleUnlimited

the-princess-dilemma-second-version

Buy or Borrow on Amazon

It’s here, it’s here! My final release of 2016, The Princess Dilemma. This historical romance is particularly close to my heart because it had a multi-year gestation. It is alternative history in a way, because the hero is the son of Queen Victoria’s father. He really did have illegitimate children many years older than his legitimate daughter, who became queen of England in 1837, but not my Edward FitzPrince.

This is a great book to read in anticipation of the new PBS show, Victoria, which is about the same exact time period as my book, with many of the same historical characters! Victoria Preview

The Princess Dilemma Blurb:

England, 1837: In the game of kings, there can be only one winner, but a second chance at love is worth more than any throne…

As a British army colonel, Edward FitzPrince deals with dangerous secrets every day. When his mother dies and he learns he may have a claim to the British throne, he quickly finds himself out of his depths. The Scottish-born soldier discovers life in London and political maneuvering foreign indeed.

One woman can help him, German Princess Charlotte von Scharnburg, with whom he had a secret romance more than a decade before, his long-lost wife. As the best friend and lady-in-waiting to his half-sister, Queen Victoria, who has just ascended the throne of England, Charlotte is now his natural enemy.

Edward is determined to have his birthright. Charlotte must ensure her family’s survival. They will be each other’s greatest ally, or tear each other apart.

That Gold in Laguna by Heather Hiestand #newrelease #romance

that-gold-in-laguna-coverYeah! Book 2 in my Charisma Series, The Ericksons, is finally out. I wrote it back in the late winter, but held sexy treasure hunter Thor’s story all this time to be part of the mini-launch in the Laguna Beach series, part of Kindle Worlds. Buy Here

I really, really loved writing these stories, which came to me after a Curse of Oak Island television binge. The show has just started it’s fourth season, and I’m book two into my series!

Blurb:

Treasure hunter Thor Erickson stars in California Gold, a reality TV show. An outdoors buff, he wants to dig for buried gems in the wilderness, not in a rich girl’s Laguna Beach backyard.

Rachel McHughes is an art expert looking for a new challenge. She wants her wealthy father to sell his property so she can leave her job curating the family art collection and take a fulfilling museum position.

The California Gold producers insist the hunt for missing Hollywood Golden Age jewels is good television. The show must go on despite friction between the cast and the McHughes family.

Thor and Rachel can’t avoid each other, or the incredible, sexy chemistry they generate. The treasure they discover might not be gold, but each other.
