Susan Schulz, Editorial Brand Director for Cosmopolitan magazine, gives Kindle the scoop on the latest releases in Cosmopolitan's new partnership with Harlequin.
Hello again, book-loving Amazonians! I’m especially psyched to be back to tell you about the latest releases from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin because you’re going to want to give yourselves a few little gifts this holiday season, am I right? Yes, you will definitely need a little break from all of the giving to others, and here are a few guilty little pleasures to bestow upon yourself.
First, this little number will get you into the holiday spirit for sure. It’s called Definitely Naughty by Jo Leigh. Our lead Cosmo girl, Aubrey Hayes, is a window display designer at Le Muse Lingerie, this chi-chi lingerie store in my good ol’ hometown, NYC. She has to come up with the ultimate sexy window display for the Christmas shopping season and she’s fresh out of ideas. Then, this “Hot Guys Trading Card” literally floats into her hand—think old time baseball cards like your little brother used to collect, but instead of baseball players, the guys pictured on the front are eligible bachelors who’ve been submitted by people they know as bona fide great guys. The card Aubrey happens to pick up is that of NYPD detective Liam Flynn. When she sees his photo, she knows she has discovered her inspiration for her holiday window display and reaches out to him to see if he’ll agree. Aubrey knows he’s hot from a purely aesthetic perspective, but she doesn’t expect to actually be as physically attracted to him as she becomes when they meet. This is the ultimate story of mixing work with play. And as I said, it will give you a delicious little escape from the craziness of this time of year.
But you know what else I want to tell you about? In case you missed the first few Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin—we launched our first title, Afterburn, just a few months ago—we’re putting a bunch of them together as a fun little “gift box” so to speak in the Cosmo Red-Hot Reads Box Set. Cake by Lauren Dane, Fearless by Tawny Weber, Everything You Need To Know by Helekay Dimon, and Naked Sushi by Jina Bacarr. You know how you DVR your favorite TV show and then binge-watch every episode in one sitting? Think of this book bundle as binge-reading. Instead of having to wait til next month for a new sexy read, you can throw yourself right into one novel after another. This is the perfect little gift to yourself if you’ll be doing any traveling over the holidays and know you’ll need more than one book to get you through the road trip or plane/train ride. And psst we’re only offering it for a limited time so get yours… because you know at Cosmo, we always want to be sure you get yours. Happy Holidays and happy sexy reading, everyone.
