Once there was a gospel written in Christ's own hand: a treasure of almost unimaginable magnitude, referred to by the Cathars of medieval France as The Book of Love... Fresh from her successful search for the long-hidden scrolls written by May Magdelene, journalist Maureen Pascal now finds herself on the trail of the legendary lost gospel known as The Book of Love. But just as there were those who would stop at nothing to seize and suppress The Book of Love seven centuries ago, so there are those today who are equally determined that its radical message should never be revealed. In a race across Italy and France, new dangers await Maureen and her over Sinclair as they begin to uncover secrets and shine new light on the hidden corners of Christianity. Combining expert research with dazzling plot twists, The Book of Love is sure to thrill readers as they follow Maureen's search for clues through some of the world's greatest art, architecture and history, until a potentially fatal encounter reveals the Book of Love to her -- and to us.

She has written extensively on subjects including politics, history and the arts. She lives in Los Angeles with her Irish-born musician husband, Peter McGowan.From AudioFile:
This sequel to THE EXPECTED ONE further explores the cult of Maryology, and the theory that Jesus Christ was married to and bore children with Mary Magdalene. Protagonist Maureen Pascal, one of their descendants, finds information suggesting a gospel written by Christ himself. This "Book of Love" points to the Holy Spirit being God's wife in heaven. Linda Stephens narrates in a hushed, breathy tone reminiscent of talking in church. Her portrayals of Maureen's friends, relatives, and antagonists from various countries include credible accents but little passion or conviction. One quickly tires of the author's endless repetition of clichéd phrases, as well as Stephens's delivery of them. In her self-narrated author's notes, McGowan swears it's all true.
