meet Trevor, Haylie, & baby Bradley

As you know, I am part of this year’s “Dynasties:  The Jarrods” continuity series for Silhouette Desire, wrapping things up with INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY early next month.

I am SO excited about this release!  For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been away from Silhouette Desire for a while…doing the knitting books & then the vampire book.  All great projects, but I do dearly love writing for Desire, & CHRISTMAS BABY has been a wonderful re-introduction to the line for me.

Yes, it’s a continuity story, which means that it’s part of a multi-book, multi-author series, but even though I was handed much of the plot for this book, it was right up my alley from the very beginning.  We’ve got a secret baby, a bit of blackmail, & a boatload of super-steamy sexual tension between the hero & heroine—who could ask for anything more? :winkwink

So let me introduce you to this wonderful story & it’s even more wonderful characters, Trevor Jarrod, Haylie Smith, & baby Bradley.  (Is he a Smith or a Jarrod—or both? :whhhat )

Silhouette Desire #2055
December 2010
ISBN 978-0373730681
(Dynasties: The Jarrods — Book 6)

This wasn’t the type of Christmas present he’d been expecting. Trevor Jarrod—a daddy? Yet the enticing woman seated in his office claimed the Aspen businessman was the father of her baby nephew. Quick as he could say paternity test, Trevor discovered she was telling the truth. But just what did this revelation mean? The confirmed bachelor knew nothing about being a parent. And Haylie Smith wasn’t about to hand off the precious infant to a complete stranger.

If Trevor really wanted to claim his unexpected heir, he had an important choice to make—head to court…or head to the altar!

And now, to introduce you to our cast of characters (as suggested in the “Dynasties:  The Jarrods” bible).


Matthew Pictures, Images and Photos

At six-feet-two-inches, flirty, laid-back, athletic Trevor Jarrod can often be found frequenting the slopes. He runs a marketing firm in Aspen, Colorado, & has recently taken of as President of Marketing for Jarrod Ridge.


Slightly full-figured, honey-blond Haylie Smith always takes care of everyone else before herself. She owns her own event-planning company in Denver, Colorado, & is sister to Bradley’s deceased mother, Heather.


Aww.  Bradley Smith—possibly soon-to-be Bradley Jarrod—is an adorable three-month-old baby boy.  He enjoys naps, baths, sucking his toes, & a warm bottle on a cold day.

    This sounds great and that baby picture is absolutely adorable. :winkwink I’ll definitely be reading this…

    Oh and I got my books today 🙂 Thanks so much! :blowkiss

    • Heidi says:

      So glad everything arrived safely.

      And I adore that little baby, too—isn’t he the cutest? But then Bradley *is* the cutest baby in the world, I can attest to that. :winkwink

  2. Laura J says:

    Oh yeah, can definitely see Matt playing Trevor!

    • Heidi says:

      He’s actually the pic they gave me in the original Jarrods bible so I’d have a good idea of his character going in, & it was noooooo problem imagining him as my hero while I wrote the story. LOL

  3. Dee says:

    Does Trevor also play the bongo drums naked?

    That baby is sooooo cute. I can’t wait to get this book!

    • Heidi says:

      Not in my book, he doesn’t. Altho he is a bit of a ski bum at first, so one never knows for sure. LOL

      No, no, come to think of it, he’s a Jarrod, so he’s much classier than that. He also prefers to save his nudity for…other things. :winkwink

    this looks like its going to be sooo good!! I keep looking at wallyworld…ya never know when it’ll show up!! :dancing

    • Heidi says:

      So true, Hollie. They can be on their own schedules, & with the series books, they show up, then when they’re gone, they’re GONE.

      But this one really shouldn’t be out much before Dec. 7th, so you don’t have to be too vigilant until then. :notworthy

    Thanks for the pic of Mr. Hey, Hey, Hey! as I like to call him. :happyjoy I always get my Harlequin e-books early and wanted to let you know that I loved this story. Hope you can write more for Harlequin.

    • Heidi says:

      LOL That is a good name for him. :beerlaugh

      So cool that you got your copy of XMAS BABY early. I didn’t even know it was available as an ebook already. :whhhat But that’s great, & I’m so happy you enjoyed it.

      Already have another Desire in the pipeline…HER LITTLE SECRET, HIS HIDDEN HEIR scheduled for June 2011. A ways off, but we’ll find some way to wile away the time. :angel
