Overview


More Than Words:
Bestselling authors and real-life heroines

Every year, Harlequin's More Than Words award is given to three real-life heroines, women whose courage and vision have helped change people's lives for the better. Once again, three bestselling Harlequin authors have written stories inspired by these remarkable women.

In The Gift of a Good Start, teacher Olivia Harris could lose more than her job when budget cuts threaten to close her school. Olivia's nonprofit group, which helps students in need, is also at risk.

Determined to save her charity, Olivia attends an awards banquet, hoping to meet potential donors. Handsome and charismatic Langston Hill supports the Children's Hospital, and at first, Olivia thinks he could be an ally, someone to help her nonprofit reach the next level. But Langston works for the board of education—he's on the committee that's trying to close her school. Olivia cares about Langston, but how can she love a man who might be responsible for shattering her dreams?

Look for all three ebooks inspired by real-life heroines: Red at Night by Katie McGarry, You Are Here by Liz Fichera and The Gift of a Good Start by Earl Sewell.

    Good Read

    Mr. Sewell does it again! Olivia & Langston's story was an original one. I love how dedicated Olivia was to her cause and how Langston stepped aside even though he didn't want to allow her dream to come true and keep her away from scandal. But in the end love prevails. As the saying goes "Whats meant to be will be." I look forward to Mr. Sewell's next novel.

    This sucked.

    This book was about 60 pages long, published by Harlequin in 2014, was perfectly edited and had no adult themes other than cursing. I really, really did not like the female lead character in this book. She had a I am better than you attitude, was a smart aleck, over bearing, pushy and just plain unlikable. She also cusses. Picture this, you are at a city meeting, a respected teacher stands before a commitee which wants to close the school she works at, as she pleads her case, she demands they turn off their cell phones and becomes snarky, she also starts cursing. What kind of impression does this make on you as a parent, coworker, her superior, a fellow professional or on the commitee? I found this woman, totally unlikable. She did not treat anyone with respect and and was rude to all. I say skip this, there are much better books still waiting to be read. Chick lit, not really a romance, more of an instructional on rudeness and unprofessional behavior.
