Elizabeth Gentry put all her passion into her students. Educating them, encouraging them, reaching them—that was easy. It was the living that was hard. After the betrayal, the grief and the pain, there was a kind of peace in giving away her heart to her pupils.

That was what made Todd Lewis so dangerous. With his dogged determination and rugged handsomeness, he had slowly s

This book was comprised of two novels. The first being "Miss Liz's Passion" by Sherryl Woods, and the second was "Home On The Ranch by Allison Leigh. These are fun to read because they are usually a few years older, but, timeless in their subject and appeal.

Miss Liz is a widow, who is currently teaching third grade in Florida. As will happen, she finds herself with a favorite student, in this case, one with a learning disability. Kevin Lewis is as adorable as they come, but his behavior is anyth

Two Harlequin stories in one novel. Gosh, why do I pick up these books? Only because they are "Free". It's going right back where I got it from. I really dislike silly love stories. I basically skimmed much of the book. Other parts I had to reread twice, it just didn't grasp my attention. I had a lot of eye rolling going on.

I kinda felt like I was reading the same story, but the character's occupations changed. Similarities in both stories as in many typical love stories: main characters really

Another two for one book. In the main story (Miss Liz's Passion) we learn about a young student with a learning disability and how it is affecting not only his life but also his father's. This cute story introduces a teacher with concerns about one of her students to a single father who son is the cause of her concern. The interesting thing is the author introduces to a therapist who uses dolphins to help her patients. What's really funny is that the author also wrote about this therapist findin ...more

When I hear the words "Miss Liz", I naturally think of school teacher. I had no idea that the main character was one because when I picked it up, I bought it purely because the author was Sherryl.

A young school teacher, Elizabeth Gentry, suffers a great loss early on, so she devotes her life to her students. She is so passionate about what she does that when she finds a young boy in her class who is constantly getting into trouble she digs deeper and finds out the true problem.Trying to convince

(Miss Liz's Passion) A nice little romance. Elizabeth Gentry is a passionate school teacher. She lives to educate, encourage, and reach her students on their level. Todd Lewis is the father of her student, Kevin, the trouble maker. Even though he seems to disrupt the class and cause trouble, he tugs at her heart strings. She has to have a talk with his father...............this is where the story got interesting. Good ending!

(Home on the Ranch) The second story is about a physical therapist Bel

Having a teaching background I kind of liked that Liz was a teacher in this book and she was sort of dealing with some issues that teachers face (students with learning disabilities). I also found the dolphin program really interesting. The love interest between Liz and Todd wasn't quite as interesting to me as the dolphin program but I still really enjoyed it. I really got curious about Hank and Ann's story from reading this book.

Really good books. Fast read (especially for being 2 in 1). I enjoyed Miss Liz's Passion (especially with the dolphin rehabilitation story) but I must admit, I enjoyed the bonus book more. Something about Cage and Belle's story just got to me. Either way, worth the read. Very pleasurable way to spent a afternoon.

Sherryl Woods is always an enjoyable read.

Liked the bonus book too and will have to look for more from Allison Leigh. Love the 2 for 1 books that introduce me to new authors.

These are early-ish books for both of these authors and their writing has matured. Neither was bad, but both seemed slowly paced.

This book deals with dyslexia and is just as valid today as it was when written in 2004.

With two other careers to her credit before becoming a novelist and four states in which she's lived for extended periods of time, Sherryl Woods has collected friends and memories, along with way too much unnecessary junk.

"The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sa
