Everyone deserves a break, including Helen who needs to get swept away by some romance novels. I like how Harlequin is very tongue in cheek here. They know their audience and the reason people read the books.

In a nod to action films in Hollywood, this spot for Canadian apparel store RW&CO stars P.K.. Subban, who plays for the Montreal Canadiens. The ending has a slight twist at the end that, while not unexpected, is still a nice way to finish.
