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 to such 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 a beautiful relationship in this love story is the fact that the two protagonists are so deliriously, passionately wrong for each other!

Product Description:

She's a book reviewer who hates his books.he's a bestselling author who's determined to change her mind–about his books and him.

J. Soldier McKennitt, a Seattle detective–turned–bestselling–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.

About the Author:

Long ago and far away in a fairytale land called California, Marianne Stillings's mother read her the Little Golden Book of The Ugly Duckling. She cried so hard at how badly the duckling was treated her mother frantically skipped ahead to calm her and prove all would end well. The book has been lost over the years, but Marianne's love of reading and happy endings has remained. Now a resident of Washington State, when not writing happy endings of her own, she works as a tech writer for The Boeing Company, and spends time with her husband Mike, daughters Rebecca and Katie, and Dorothy the Wonder Dog.
