Guest Post – Barbra Wallace

by Barbra Wallace

Please ” welcome Barbra Wallace to writing pearls today. She is a seasoned romance author with several publishings some with Harlequin romance. I am glad she is going to be talking today about a subject that I am so on board with – rediscover Harlequin Romances!

Rediscover Classic Romance

When’s the last time you picked up a Harlequin Romance? Yes, that Harlequin Romance, the one your mother and grandmother used to read. Lately, these books have been a bit forgotten in the sea of newer novels.

There’s a reason Harlequin’s Romance line has been around for over six decades however. These feel-good books capture the emotional rush that comes with falling in love. You’ll laugh, you cry, and you’re guaranteed a happily ever after. What’s more, these are books that are meant to be shared with family. Mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins – all of them can enjoy the same book.

What’s more, you’ll find the heroes and heroines in a Harlequin Romance novel incredibly likeable. Strip away the exotic locales and glamorous lifestyle, and you’ll find men and women with problems not that different from yours and mine.

So why not (re)discover Harlequin Romance today? I think you’ll enjoy what your read.

And might I suggest a good place to start would be with Saved by the CEO? Set in Tuscany, this book features everything I mentioned above.



After a horribly public divorce, Louisa Harrison has escaped to Tuscany craving peace and quiet. But gorgeous local tycoon Nico Amatucci sends her heart into overdrive…especially when he kisses her! 

Nico comes to Louisa’s rescue when their romance makes headlines, but Louisa’s determined to prove she’s no damsel in distress! Being in Nico’s arms makes her feel stronger than she’s ever felt before, but is she brave enough to entrust him with her just-healed heart? 

She had to be joking. She was going to claim sovereignty now? “That’s funny, because I don’t remember you complaining about my maintaining it on your behalf.”

“On my behalf and to your benefit. Or are you going to tell me you didn’t double your vineyard without paying a penny?”

“No,” he replied with a shrug. “Why deny the truth?” He had benefited from using Carlos’s land. Carlos would have wanted as much. “You chose to stay away, and I saw no sense in letting good land go to waste.”

“I didn’t choose, I…” Whatever she was going to say was swept aside by a deep breath. “Regardless, that doesn’t give you the right to do what you want. No matter how good you are at it,” she muttered into her cup.

“Good at vineyard management or doing what I want?” Her side eye gave him his answer. “Fine. You’re the owner. If you don’t want to recultivate, what would you like to do with your neglected vineyards?”

“I’ll let you know,” she said, jutting her chin for maximum haughtiness.

They both knew he would replant; she was being stubborn for stubbornness’ sake. He wondered if she knew how attractive she looked when she was being argumentative. Maybe that was why he enjoyed pushing her buttons. Like a person with a stick poking at a hornet’s nest and getting off on the risk, provoking her to annoyance had excitement curling low in his stomach. And damn if it wasn’t easy to push her buttons. Seemed as though all he had to do was breathe and her eyes were flashing.

Those eyes were flashing brightly at the moment. Reminding him of how she’d looked right after they kissed.

Ah. Clarity dawned.

“This isn’t really about recultivating, is it?” he asked, stepping closer. “This is about what happened at the wedding.”
