She rewards them through contests which coincide with Jackson’s publishing milestone triumphs and this November Jackson will hit another milestone as she’ll publish her 100th book — A MADARIS BRIDE FOR CHRISTMAS (Harlequin Kimani Arabesque Press; November 2013).
In her New York Times and USA Today bestselling series of novels featuring the Madaris family, Brenda Jackson has chronicled the lives, loves and losses of three generations of an accomplished African-American clan and its notoriously charming men.
A MADARIS BRIDE FOR CHRISTMAS is a novel that features one of Jackson’s most unforgettable Madaris heroes yet. Lee Madaris, the owner of one of the hottest hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, knows his grandmother has pegged him to be the next Madaris to marry; and he intends to beat her at her own game. He refuses to let her play matchmaker and sets out to claim his destiny by finding a woman of his own.
When Lee Madaris meets Carly Briggs at his hotel, there’s an undeniable urge between the two of them that makes Lee want more — forever. Now Lee only hopes the hotel’s gorgeous new pastry chef will accept his proposal of a marriage based solely on passion and convenience.
