It’s an outrageous gamble and the stakes are high . . . Millions of dollars worth of rare stamps are gone, along with the family business unless Gwen Chastain follows the thief to a Vegas casino and steals the cancelled postage back before anyone finds out. Except that means Gwen’ll have to masquerade as Nina, a poker-playing blond bombshell, and get into even deeper trouble with a sharp-eyed reporter who sees right through her bluff. Now, Gwen has no option but to trust Del Redmond – and pray that he knows how to play it close to the vest. It’s a big risk and the odds are stacked against her, except he’s got a few tricks of his own... starting with a truly amazing pair of hands!

I’m a firm believer that you’ve got to try new things in order to stay fresh, both as a person and (for me) as a writer. Gwen’s book marks my first dip into romantic mystery/suspense. I’ve watched other people do it for a long time and was itching to try my hand at the genre. I’m an avid mystery reader, so building a suspenseful story of my own was a fun challenge -- layering in the mystery and suspense while keeping the focus on the emotional development and the trademark Blaze heat took some doing, but in the end I think it worked.
I hope you’ll stop by my web site and tell me how I did, and whether you’d like to see more books of this type from me in future. Look for the story of Gwen’s sister Joss coming in August. And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about Sex & the Supper Club -- look for the stories of Paige, Thea, and Delaney to come in the summer of 2006.
Kristin HardyAbout the Author:
Book crazy her whole life, Kristin Hardy started her first novel, about a boy and his horse, at 12. The key word is ‘started.’ In the early 1980s, she set her cap at becoming a romance writer. Several three-to-four chapter fizzles later, in 2000, she decided that if she was ever going to achieve her dream, she needed to actually finish a book. The result, "My Sexiest Mistake," sold to Harlequin in a week, made the Waldenbooks bestseller list, won a National Readers’ Choice Award, and debuted as a movie on Oprah’s Oxygen Network last spring. Kristin currently writes for Harlequin’s Blaze line, and, beginning fall 2005, for Silhouette Special Edition. Her eighth book, "Certified Male," hits the shelves June 2005.
