However, it wasn't until a co-worker handed her a romance novel that she knew where her stories belonged. For years she limited her dreams to nights, weekends and commuter train trips while working as a communications specialist, PR freelancer and full-time mom.

I can see why Karen was nominated for a RITA award. This was a terrific romance. There are some very hot sex scenes, but you know what? It's a story that will stand up without them. I love when a book has substance beyond the heat, and this book deli...more

I loved Victoria Holt as a kid, and this novella reminded me of her books. Not only did Barbara Hancock write a compelling story, but her language was so beautiful, so lyrical....I loved every single word.

There are books you read. Then there are books you fly through. This is one of the latter. I started The Ashford Affair upon take off from San Antonio and barely looked up until I landed. Bea and Addie are beyond compelling.
