“You’re Touching Me,” Cami Said.
“That’s not allowed, is it?”
Rafe’s fingers tightened. Anger was smoldering in his dark eyes.
“It all depends on whose rules we’re following.” He reached out and took up the handcuffs, then turned to her with a glint in his eyes. “I’m gonna have to put the cuffs back on you.”
She shrank back. “No!”
“You tried to make a break for it, lady. You’re not cooperating like a suspected criminal should.”
“I’m sorry I did that,” she said, backing away.
“I won’t do it again. Honest.”
Rafe hesitated. She was saying the right words, but the look in her eyes told him she was feeling anything but meek. Still, what was he going to do, tie her up?
At the thought of that, a part of him cringed. She was so pretty, so…
No. What was the matter with him? He was a cop. He’d locked up prettier women than this. And he was going to do the same here.
But not yet…
It’s the CELEBRATION 1000 moment you’ve all been waiting for, the publication of Silhouette Desire #1000! As promised, it’s a very special MAN OF THE MONTH by Diana Palmer called Man of Ice. Diana was one of the very first Silhouette Desire writers, and her many wonderful contributions to the line have made her one of our most beloved authors. This story is sure to make its way to your shelf of “keepers.”
But that’s not all! Don’t miss Baby Dreams, the first book in a wonderful new series, THE BABY SHOWER, by Raye Morgan. Award-winning author Jennifer Greene also starts a new miniseries, THE STANFORD SISTERS, with the delightful The Unwilling Bride. For something a little different, take a peek at Joan Elliott Pickart’s Apache Dream Bride. And the fun keeps on coming with Judith McWilliams’s Instant Husband, the latest in THE WEDDING NIGHT series. Our Debut Author promotion introduces you to Amanda Kramer, author of the charmingly sexy Baby Bonus.
And you’ll be excited to know that there’s more CELEBRATION 1000 next month, as the party continues with six more scintillating love stories, including The Accidental Bodyguard, a MAN OF THE MONTH from Ann Major.
Silhouette Desire—the passion continues! Enjoy!

favors settings in the West, which is where she has spent most of her life. She admits to a penchant for Western heroes, believing that whether he’s a rugged outdoorsman or a smooth city sophisticate, he tends to have a streak of wildness that the romantic heroine can’t resist taming. She’s been married to one of those Western men for twenty years and is busy raising four more in her Southern California home.
What an anniversary! One thousand Silhouette Desire novels. One thousand red books, packed full of love, laughter and touching moments. Do you have them all? I have a friend who does—all those red books in a row on a special set of shelves her husband built for her in her bedroom closet. Any time she wants, she can pick one out and recall the surprises, the sudden laughs out loud, the tears, the sighs.
That’s what romance is all about—emotions. Who doesn’t like to think about what it feels like to fall in love—to see that special guy for the first time…the thrill the first time he touches you…the first time he kisses you…In real life you usually only get to fall in love once. Between the covers of those red books, you could have done it one thousand times! And I get to go even further—I get to write them (well, not all thousand).
Thank you for reading them. Thank you for loving them. This anniversary is for all of us to celebrate. Happy birthday, Silhouette Desire!
Love to you all,
