Contest: It Happened One Season

Copyright Avon, HarperCollinsFour stories, four authors, one theme: that was the idea behind the bestselling anthology from Avon IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT. Now, Stephanie Laurens, Mary Balogh, Jacquie D’Alessandro, and Candice Hern return to write four stories ultimately chosen by you, the readers, in IT HAPPENED ONE SEASON.

Visit to suggest your story.


It must take place during the Regency social season.

You must include three specific plot points or elements (such as these used for the anthology IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT: (1) a couple meets at an inn, 2) they had met before but not within the past ten years, 3) the whole story takes place within a 24 hour period). Your three ideas could create the theme of the four tales in the new anthology collection IT HAPPENED ONE SEASON.

The authors choose the four finalists.

The readers vote on the ultimate favorite and one lucky winner will see their dream come true.

The grand prize winner will be acknowledged on the dedication page of IT HAPPENED ONE SEASON and receive a $1,000 American Express gift card and a copy signed by all four authors.

Semi-finalists will receive $100 American Express gift cards and a set of personalized autographed books.
