Meet the I Heart Presents Team!

Amy Loosemore, Manager, Online Engagement at Harlequin Enterprises

While growing up, Amy was often asked, “Do you think you’ll write romance novels someday?” Probably not what most little girls hear, but as the daughter of a published romance author, Amy is now used to being asked if she’ll follow in her mother’s footsteps. Though not a writer herself, Amy is following her own dream of a career in publishing. If you have questions about I Heart Presents, you can email her at Amy_Loosemore @ Harlequin.ca (remove the spaces).


Elissa Smith, Online Engagement Coordinator at Harlequin Enterprises

Elissa’s love of reading can only be matched with her love of blogging. You can reach her at Elissa_Smith @ Harlequin.ca if you have any questions about I Heart Presents.


Laura for Author SummitLaura McCallen is the Assistant Editor/EA for Harlequin Presents and having moved across an ocean to dazzling London with her very own alpha male she’s living the glamorous international dream!

IMG_0427Joanne Grant is Senior Executive Editor at Harlequin UK. She oversees the awesome team of talented UK editors and manages Harlequin Presents. Well, as much as you can manage eight untameable alpha heroes a month! It’s a hard job… With her stash of shoes in a variety of colours and a supply of fizz for visiting authors, Joanne likes to bring a little of the glamourous world of Presents to the office whenever possible. That is before she kicks off her heels and cycles home to her very own hero (her husband’s a detective), and a cat so alpha he has as his own hashtag #editorkitty

Carly for Author SummitFor Carly Byrne, Editor on Harlequin Presents, escaping into a world of wealth, luxury and glamour at work is a welcome break from tidying up after her little girl at home.  Sneakers might be more practical than stilettos in her real life, and she is more likely to be dripping in the remains of her toddler’s dinner than diamonds, but working on a jet-set series like Presents enables Carly to indulge her ultimate travel – and hot alpha male travelling companion – fantasies!

Pippa For Simply BooksPippa Roscoe is the Associate Editor for Harlequin Presents who is so utterly inspired by the amazing love stories she devours, she has been known on occasion to ride the elevator rather than take the stairs, to hopefully one day just ‘happen’ to get stuck there with a delicious tycoon of her own. Her search is still on going, so in the meantime, she’ll fall in love each day with a new Presents hero written by our fabulous authors.

Izzy for Author SummitIsabelle Gormezano Marks didn’t know how exciting entering the world of Presents would be. Now, as Editorial Assistant to the team, she gets to lose herself in the fabulous stories with every one offering something unique, exotic and utterly captivating! Izzy didn’t realise that sitting at her desk in the office could make her feel so well-travelled, with tales of dark passion taking place on sand dunes, sprawling country estates and royal palaces worldwide, no day is the same!

    i Love Harlequin Presents i have been read them since i was 18 and i am now 40. i just wish it was more then 6 books every month i am a readlcoholic, i was so happy When the July 2011 books came out and it was 12
    books. i am now down to three books and looking for more the only thing is that i only read Harlequin Presents and nothing else. I think the extra six books were books that were printed in another country so if that is the case continue too send books that weren’t printed in the USA

    I an considering the purchase of an e-book. I know very little about these. Does anyone know the cost of a book purchased this way. I would like to know more. I read approximately 10 to 15 books a week light romance, historical, fiction. I have approximately 2000 of the first Harlequin romances downstairs they cost $.50 back then.

    I am looking for a book. It was a romance not recent. It was about a wealthy man that found his ex lover, thinking that she had embezzled money from him. He decides he is going to take her back and have her prosecuted, and on the way the private plane crashes and they end up on an island and she has amnesia. She ends up falling in love with him. They end up rescued, and her memory comes back. Anyone who can tell me the name of the book and author?
