Tangling with Ty

It's hard to call an author to task for being too ambitious, but in this case I've simply got to do it. In this second entry in her South Beach Singles series, author Jill Shalvis has undertaken the tremendous task of featuring both a hero and heroine with some pretty darn serious issues - th ...
