This is the first single title contemporary romance by Lynne Graham, who is has written several Harlequin Presents (which may first be put out by Mills & Boon in England. This bk is now being released (go to www.eharlequin.com for info) under the title BALLYFLYNN. It must not have done well under the title EMERALD MISTRESS. If you are a L Graham fan, you will probably want to read this bk, but I considered it a very poor and barely readable effort by an author who has written far better. In fact, I skimmed a large portion of the bk.
