Susan Schulz, Editorial Brand Director for Cosmopolitan magazine, gives Kindle the scoop on the latest releases in Cosmopolitan's new partnership with Harlequin.
If you’re like me and most of the country, you are still freezing in winter cold. (And if you’re not freezing, I’m officially jealous of you. Do me a favor and don’t gloat, okay?!) So what’s better to warm you up than a brand-spanking-new Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin? And this isn’t any Red-Hot Read…. Oh no. This month’s Red-Hot Read is the long-awaited follow-up from America’s premier author of provocative fiction, #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day, to her best-selling novel Afterburn. The new title, Aftershock (coming out March 11), picks up on the very complicated love affair between Jackson Rutledge (known simply and sexily as Jax) and Gianna Rossi. In case you didn’t read Afterburn yet, I don’t want to be a spoiler, so read Afterburn and get up to speed, sister! Once you do, you’ll be psyched that the saga of Gia and Jax doesn’t end there. At the beginning of Aftershock, Gia basically lays it on the line for Jax. As much as she doesn’t want to lose him, she’s ready to walk away if she can’t have him on her terms. Her words to him are so strong and confident, you’ll want to adapt them for any “tough talks” you have to have in your own relationship! Jax is like a Mr. Big type, all cocky and powerful, but when he hears Gia’s words you can see his resolve just melting away. It’s every woman’s fantasy to bring a guy like that to his knees… and bring him to his knees she does. But don’t for one second think that the rest of the story is tied up with a bow. You see, he’s powerful and politically entrenched, which means her association with him opens her up not just to love, but to the not-so-welcome scrutiny that comes to anyone in the public eye. Whether it’s heated fights that Jax and Gia get into, or their love life, I can promise you Aftershock will definitely keep you warm during these last few weeks of winter. We’re also thrilled that these two steamy reads will be available in the Afterburn/Aftershock trade paperback edition coming out on March 11th! Happy steamy reading, my friends!
