For Beverly Barton fans, in the latest Romantic Times newsletter, was this sad news:

Just as last month’s newsletter went out, we received the terrible news that beloved Kensington author Beverly Barton passed away suddenly from a heart attack. The news reverberated throughout the book community as fans, fellow writers and friends came to terms with her loss. Beverly was a very close friend of Linda Howard and Linda Winstead Jones and they are devastated by her loss. In the new issue is a loving tribute from Rhonda Nelson, a fellow member of the Heart of Dixie chapter of RWA (Beverly was a founding member) and a dear friend. Beverly penned more than 70 novels for Silhouette and Kensington over her long, illustrious career and she will be greatly missed by all of us in the book community.

So sad to hear this. She was a very young 64 years of age.  Beverly Barton is the author that got me reading romantic suspense. Her Griffin Powell series is fantastic.
