Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Rich Girl

Why would someone try to kidnap Lili Kavanaugh? She's a shoe designer, for heaven's sake! It was just a fluke — she certainly doesn't need a bodyguard, despite her overprotective family's opinion.

Enter Matt Hawkins: tall, dark, and dangerous bodyguard extraordinaire. A man who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. A man who makes Lili shiver — and not from fear. And a man who refuses to see Lili as more than a job, even though she's seen the heat in his eyes when he looks at her. Well...she'll just have to fix that!

vs. The Big Bad Wolf

All Matt wants is the fee he'll collect from this job to finally start his own agency. But Lili's zest for life points up how tunnel-visioned he's become. So when she demands to know if he doesn't want more out of life, what can a strong man say...except "I do"?

In Her Own Words...

"Unlike some authors, I wasn't born wanting to write. In factI wanted to be an archaeologist. I received my classicalarchaeology degree from the University of Michigan, andeven attended a summer program at University of London'sInstitute of Archaeology. My last dig was at a Roman fortoutside Newcastle in Great Britain. There, standing up to myknees in mud and swinging a pick ax, I decided that maybearchaeology wasn't my calling in life, after all. So, I had ababy and went to work in a research lab.

"The very first romances I ever read were Kathleen Woodiwiss'sThe Flame and the Flower and The Wolf and the Dove.I fell in love with Heather and Brandon, Wulfgar and Aislinn — and have been hopelessly hooked on romances ever since.Next to writing, I like nothing better than to curl up with a goodbook and a hot cup of coffee, and romances will alwaysbe my books of choice. When I sat down to write my first story,I had no doubt it would be a romance-because,in romance, girls get to have all the fun!

"I live near Madison with my husband and our children,keeping busy reading and writing my favorite kind of books.I enjoy hearing from my readers. Please write to me at P.O.Box 394, McFarland, Wisconsin 53558-0394, or visit mywebsite at"
