Crush On You, Book #2 in The Roxy Summers Mystery Series, was as much fun as Katherine Bacher's first book in the series, Capture Me. Love the characters, the setting and the humor. Can't wait for #3.

This is my first time reading a Marie Tuhart, so I have not read the previous version of this book. I'm very glad I didn't because I rarely reread second publications, and it would have been tragic to miss this gem!

Tammy Walton Grant Hi Diana, thanks for the friend request, it's nice to meet you. :) Looking forward to chatting with you and seeing you on the Bodice Ripper threads.

Off to compare books with you, and also to check out your book. Have a great night!


Alycia You had me at steamy! LOL :) Yes, I did check out the book video and really liked it. I have fond memories as a child visiting historical sites all over the country. I still enjoy visiting as an adult. I have a sister-in-law in Virginia and enjoy visiting Civil War sites when I get a chance. I definitely understand the rich historical backdrop you have.

Hi Alycia,

I adore historical Southern romance novels. My favorites have always been Civil War romance. Years ago you could find them everywhere. Not so much these days. I grew up in Virginia with Civil War history all around me, so it was the natural setting for me when I wrote this story. I'm happy to say the book is getting great reviews. If you love a steamy historical romance with a hero that melts your butter, you'll really like Thorns of Eden. I still dream about the hero, Major Rayce Hampton, I created. Did you see the gorgeous video book trailer for the book? I just posted it on my Goodreads page the other day. Check it out. If you can't find it here, go to my webpage and click on "books". www.dianaballew.com And the gorgeous man in the video truly is the man on my book cover. Enjoy and thanks for contacting me! Diana


Alycia Thanks for the friendship Diana. I will definitely have to add your book to my to-read list. Looks good, love a southern civil war story!
