Jane Bonander often takes an old subject and breathes new life into it, as she did in Warrior Heart, which booksellers claimed was "fantastic," a "must read" and "a keeper." Scent of Lilacs also involves an old plot -- the secret-baby story -- with a different twist. "Every book needs a blend of drama, heartache, humor, and fulfillment," she claims. "But if it's a romance, it must also have an internal conflict."
Jane's readers will vouch for her ability to deliver it all. Her three prior romances for Pocket Books, Dancing on Snowflakes, Wild Heart, and Winter Heart, also received critical acclaim from reviewers, booksellers, and readers alike, who praised the books for their passion, suspense, well-constructed and lovable characters, and thrilling romance. The author of twelve romances, Jane Bonander is currently at work on her next novel for Pocket Books. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Lexy Tate is determined to make a new life for herself in northern California, in spite of coming face to face once again with Jake Westfield. She had made the mistake four years ago of thinking he returned her feelings, which resulted in the birth of a daughter. With every intention of keeping Krista's birth a secret, Lexy begins laying the groundwork for her medical practice. But trying to overcome the stigma of being a female doctor in 1893 required a little help from the only other doctor in town -- Jake. Against her will, Lexy finds her resistance against Jake crumbling until she finally realizes what she knew all along: her feelings for him are still very much alive. And once she faces her feelings, she makes another discovery. The man she thinks incapable of love is actually madly in love with her. Through a kidnapping incident by a band of Indians and difficult family problems, Lexy and Jake begin sharing their feelings. But is it too late to recapture love? And will Lexy take a chance with Jake now that their daughter's fate is also involved? From start to finish, Ms. Bonander provides a refreshing tale with a strong female character determined to make a place for herself in a man's profession. What a relief to find such a spunky woman! The setting becomes real, as does the struggle between the Indians and the settlers. The details are especially rich and the addition of an abandoned bordello as the site of Lexy's medical office is an interesting twist! Amy Wilson -- Copyright © 1998 Literary Times, Inc.
