Hidden Riches

You can't tell it by my bookshelves, but once upon a time I was wary of trying new-to-me authors. When I started reading romances back in '93 there were three authors I read, and that was it: Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught, and Sandra Brown. Needless to say in three years I'd pretty much worked my w ...

A Perfect Hero

Please do not make the mistake of looking at the cover of A Perfect Hero with its picture of three adorable toddlers and a teddy bear with a Whose Child? blurb on it and say, "Oh no, another secret baby book!" Yes, there are secret babies in this book, but there is so much more! Ian Ma ...
