Question: Why is there a bare-chested, plaid-wearing lumberjack on the cover when the male lead is a Gucci-wearing slick publisher from Chicago?

Answer: Because the female version in this outfit probably wouldn't sell as many books.

Sigh. I was disappointed in this book, unfortunately. I knew from the blurb that the cover was misleading, but the contents also failed to live up to my expectations. Alex and Tenley seemed to be moving in a languid mist of complacency and ordinariness. Their dialogue
This story left me speechless. And not it a good way.
Publisher, and player, Alex Stamos has broken one heart too many and ended up on a website specifically designed for women to know which bachelor to steer away from. Yet, Alex cannot "bask in his glory" since he’s on his way to a mysterious author’s house to offer him a publishing contract…

Alex is urban, sophisticated and handsome, his life ruled by a Blackberry filled with scheduled conference calls, meetings and well planned social events. On the other hand, Tenley is creative, in touch with nature and charmingly

Kate began reading romance in 1979 when she picked up a copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's Ashes in the Wind. She read the book from cover to cover in one very long night and was immediately hooked on the genre.

The next morning, she was standing at the door to her local Waldenbooks and when they opened, she hurried inside and asked for everything else written by Woodiwiss. At the same time, she found wo
