Port Henry Ledger Book Review by Betsy Tremaine:WRONG GUY HAS THE WRITE STUFF IN TORRID LOVE STORY
Let me tell you, dear reader, I've rarely been subjected tosuch drivel as I have in the novels of bestselling tough-guy cop-turned-author J. Soldier McKennitt. The man himself, however, is considerably more interesting. Having finally met him at a recent writers' conference in Seattle, I am pleased to report that Soldier is a tall, dark, and gorgeous hunk of literary superstar. To my surprise, he became quite the charmer once his self-righteous indignation evaporated ... Could it have been this critic's blonde hair and hourglass figure that brought about such an abrupt turnaround? Or perhaps our Soldier boy was simply vanquished by this reviewer's intelligence and caustic wit. In any case, due to the recent emergence of a crazed stalker, this plot has since thickened uncomfortably, and Detective McKennitt has brashly assumed the role of my knight in shining Brooks Brothers.
Bottom Line: The only thing standing in the way of abeautiful relationship in this love story is the fact that the two protagonists are so deliriously, passionately wrong for each other!
A fresh new voice in romance makes her debut in this delightful story in which a bestselling suspense author falls for the gorgeous reviewer who's been giving him scathing reviews. Original.

J. Soldier McKennitt, a Seattle detectiveandndash;turnedandndash;bestsellingandndash;author has read one too many scathing reviews from Betsy Tremaine of The Port Henry Ledger. Never mind that he's been on the national bestsellers list with each of his 3 books. Never mind that all the other papers consistently give him rave reviews. He decides Betsy must be some frustrated old hag, but when he meets a gorgeous blonde at a mystery writer's conference, he can't believe that this is Betsy Tremaine. Betsy with the hour glass figure any man would kill to get his hands on. Betsy with the quick witty comebacks that sets his nether regions on fire. Now if only he can figure out who's stalking her, their heated relationship may have a chance.
