It's been a while since I've updated my website, and there's a reason for that - in the near future, this site will be undergoing a complete overhaul and will be given an entirely new look. I can't wait! In the meantime, I have some exciting news to share with you:
LORD OF THE SEA: I'm excited and deeply honored to announce that LORD OF THE SEA, an RT Magazine "Top Pick," has been selected by RT as one of four finalists for best Digital First/Indie Historical Romance Of The Year (2014). (Congratulations, Captain Connor Merrick and your lovely Rhiannon!)
AUDIOBOOKS! Did you know that if you already own one of my books for your Kindle, you can get it for short money as a hugely discounted audiobook? Yes that's right - thanks to Amazon's/Audible's "Whispersync," you can get books like CAPTAIN OF MY HEART, read to you by acclaimed Irish narrator Wayne Farrell, for only $1.99! If you've never tried an audiobook, this is an excellent opportunity to see what you've been missing and what everyone's been raving about! Wayne did an excellent job as the voice of Captain Brendan Merrick, and you can check out the audiobook, and hear a sample of Brendan's and Mira's "first kiss" scene, here.
WICKED AT HEART, also narrated by Wayne Farrell, is also now available as an audiobook! We'll be celebrating the release of this bestselling and award-winning "Beauty and the Beast" tale in audio with an official launch party on February 20, 2015. Guest authors will include Kathryn Le Veque, Christi Caldwell, Cindy Nord, Renee Bernard, and the Jewels of Historical Romance! The party is here, and the audiobook is here!
You can also find the De Montforte Brothers series narrated by the talented Hollywood actor David Stifel in audio, as well as LORD OF THE SEA (read to you by Erin Jones), THE ADMIRAL'S HEART (narrated by Alan Kelly), and finally, my brand-new De Montforte Christmas novella, THE FOX AND THE ANGEL (told to you by Wayne Farrell). All of these titles are available on iTunes, and can be found on Amazon/Audible.
In other news: yes, I'm working on Lady Nerissa De Montforte's story, and I hope to release it sometime this year, though whether or not she'll end up with Perry is something even I don't yet know! I'm also planning a Christmas collaboration with two other well-known historical romance authors, and perhaps I'll even get a start on Kieran Merrick's or Del Lord's books ... we'll see what the year brings!
As always, I remain forever grateful to you, my beloved ReaderFriends, for your support and continuing interest in my books. You're the best! Be well, be happy, and think Spring!

Exciting news from Danelle Harmon! The first of my books is now available as an audio book from Audible! Check out The Admiral's Heart, narrated by Alan Kelly, with the deMontforte Brothers books, narrated by David Stifel, coming soon!
Have you ever wondered how the characters in my books relate to one another? A dedicated reader, Jan Foster and my husband Chris have both designed family trees to make it clear.
Hello, beloved Readerfriends ...
First off, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all ... where did the year go? Well, I know where much of it went for me ... into writing! Which means that in this latest update to my website, I'm thrilled and excited to announce that LORD OF THE SEA — my very first full-length book in over a decade, and a worthy installment to my bestselling Heroes Of The Sea Series — is finally available.
"Connor Merrick is one American privateer who makes sailing the high seas sexy ... a fantastic book!" says Lindsey Ross of the Romancereadergirl Blog
Set during the War of 1812, LORD OF THE SEA follows the high-seas romantic adventures of the dashing, "sinfully sexy" American privateer Captain Connor Merrick (son of Brendan and Mira from Captain Of My Heart) as he wreaks havoc on British shipping in the West Indies at the helm of the magnificent schooner, Kestrel. Connor is sexy, daring, and has an unquenchable thirst for danger, but he's hiding a shameful secret that could pull the rug out from under him. It's not until he saves the beautiful Rhiannon Evans (sister of Gwyneth from Wicked At Heart) from bloodthirsty pirates and an innocent flirtation goes stunningly awry, that his perfectly ordered life begins to unravel.
"A love story of heartbreak, redemption and ultimately, absolution." — Nancy S. Goodman, Rakes, Rogues & Romance blog
LORD OF THE SEA brings us a hero who is flawed and deeply tormented beneath the swaggering facade he presents to the rest of the world, and a feisty beauty who not only sees beneath it, but will go to any and all lengths to protect her man—even if it means confronting her own deepest fears after Connor's reckless nature brings a terrible tragedy down upon them all. Bringing back beloved characters from other books in my Heroes of the Sea Series—Brendan and Mira from Captain Of My Heart, Sir Graham and Maeve from My Lady Pirate, and even a few faces from Wicked At Heart—LORD OF THE SEA is a moving and deeply emotional story that will have you reaching for a box of tissues and remembering it long after you've finished the last page.
- Amazon Kindle
- Barnes & Noble NOOK
- ... and coming soon to iBooks, and to paperback through Amazon.com

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone, and may the new year bring you blessings of peace, joy, and love. As always, thank you for your support of my work!

A new, full-length book from Danelle Harmon — just in time for Christmas!
It's been a while since I've updated this web page, but it's only because I've been working hard on a brand new book — and I'm delighted to say that LORD OF THE SEA, my first new novel in over twelve years, is finished, and just in time for Christmas, too! Picking up where WICKED AT HEART left off, LORD OF THE SEA is the next installment in my popular Heroes Of The Sea Series, and is the tale of the recklessly brave Yankee privateer Captain Connor Merrick. When we last saw Connor, he had just won possession of the schooner Kestrel from his sister, Maeve (from MY LADY PIRATE), and was sailing off to adventures unknown. He meets his match in Rhiannon Evans, whom we also met in WICKED AT HEART, and the two find love and destiny beneath the hot Caribbean sun on the tropical paradise of Barbados. LORD OF THE SEA, already an Amazon bestseller, is available for ordering, now, and you can find it at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GTH358M.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends here in the States, and as always, thank you, all, for your continuing interest in my books!
October 23, 2012: Read an excerpt from My Lady Pirate!
October 9, 2012: My Lady Pirate is now available on Amazon.com!

A hope you're all enjoying these last, lazy days of what has been, for most of us here in the United States, a pretty hot summer. It's hard to believe that school will be starting soon, and the leaves falling from the trees. Where does the time go?
As for me, I've been steadily working through my backlist, editing and revising and updating these old stories for e-readers and to that end, I'm delighted to announce that CAPTAIN OF MY HEART will be available on or about September 1. Check out its gorgeous new cover!
The characters are as I pictured them — Brendan, the handsome, wily, and recklessly brave Anglo-Irish privateer captain, and Mira, the impish hoyden for whom he falls, and falls hard. At my request, designer Kim Killion incorporated the schooner Pride of Baltimore II into the cover which tickles me to no end, for it was this ship's immediate predecessor, Pride of Baltimore I, that inspired a major character in the book; that is, Brendan's sleek and deadly topsail schooner, Kestrel. I had such fun revisiting this book, which I think is probably best described as a romantic adventure rather than a straight historical romance, and it was hard to let it go when I finally finished my work on it. It's fast-paced, fun, and full of adventure, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
I would also like to thank each and every one of you who has written to me,
signed up for my newsletter (if you haven't yet, what are you waiting for?
I also would like to thank you for putting WICKED AT HEART on Amazon's Hot New Releases list, and also for its stint on the bestseller lists. This book, a true "tortured hero" tale in the tradition of Beauty and the Beast, is a story exceptionally close to my heart, and I hope you'll enjoy it if you haven't yet had the chance to pick it up.
Again, thank you all for your support and kindnesses; happy reading!
July 15, 2012: Wicked At Heart is now available on Amazon.com!
July 8, 2012: All four of the DeMontforte books remain on the Amazon.com bestseller lists for the second month in a row! Thank you, dear readers, for putting them there!
It has been a long time since I've updated this website, and I thank you for your many letters and emails to me during the long years of my writerly sabbatical. Now, in the spring of 2012, I am creating again, and I am working on what so many of you have asked me for: the long-awaited story of Nerissa and Perry, who certainly has some devils of his own to banish after all that he suffered in The Wicked One, thanks (no surprise), to Lucien. Needless to say, I don't think Perry is going to count the duke as his best friend any time soon, and for good reason. But to what lengths will he go to enact vengeance?
The other exciting news is that, as a special treat for Kindle, Nook, and other e-reader users, I'm in the process of preparing my entire backlist, starting with the de Montforte Brothers series for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Sony Reader, Smashwords, and other e-book websites . . . complete with GORGEOUS new covers that you'll find here on this website! I've had so many emails over the years from readers asking me where they can find my out-of-print titles, and now, that search is over. You'll be able to download my books straight from your favorite online bookstore!
It's so good to be back! Wishing you all the best,
— Danelle Harmon
