"A Clash of Hearts - Lucienne was positively outraged. The terrible collision with Lord Perry Wittenden's carriage had all but destroyed her own. But when the infuriatingly good-humored gent published a scandalous account of the accident in the local paper - in which Lucy was identified as a "shrew" - well, that was beyond bearing! Indeed, Lucy's every encounter with the man bred chaos, turmoil, disaster... And yet, Lord Perry was thoroughly enjoying himself. Lucy was the most temperamental, spoiled, and unreasonable young lady he had ever met. But her fiery spirit and captivating beauty drew him deeper into a raging battle of wits - and love was the grandest prize of all."

"From the back cover: In her brother's breeches Miss Audacia Aderly was far too improper for words... and for her own good! Hadn't she already been mistaken for a boy by none other than Lord Greydon, the dashing Roland himself? It was high time for Audacia to be packed off to London to stay with her godmother and learn the ways of the _ton_. The thought of Audacia learning to become a lady was enough to bring Roland along for a laugh. But all too soon the delicious minx was abuzz with beaux... and up to her pretty neck in scandal. Was it too late to be a proper London lady and capture the one she loved?"

"THE GALLANT GUARDIAN - A LOYAL PROTECTOR
Lord Maximilian Stanford? A guardian? Lady Charlotte thought it was quite unnecessary--she and her young brother, William, could take care of themselves. Why would a dedicated bachelor like Max want to fuss over a pair of orphans, anyway? Charlotte didn't need his help. Until now...
Max reluctantly agreed to fulfill his duty as guardian. And despite himself, he grew to enjoy the company of his charming wards--especially Charlotte, who was unlike any woman he had known. Charlotte, who had never felt the peace of being cared for and protected, began to treasure the gift of Max's presence. And slowly, day by day, the independent girl began to realize just how much she needed Max...both in her heart and in her soul..."

Review Date: 6/3/2006


"BEAUTY HAS A PRICE...
Kerry McGrath had only begun to work in the county prosecutor's office at the time of the infamous "Sweetheart Murder Case"--the bizarre slaying years ago of strikingly beautiful Suzanne Reardon. Now, ten years later, Kerry has gained a reputation as a smart and relentless prosecutor--so much so that her name has been given to the governor as a candidate for a new judgeship--and her new life and career are in full swing.
But Kerry's plans are turned upside down when her daughter Robin is injured in a car accident, requiring treatment from a well-known plastic surgeon. It is in his office that Kerry first encounters a beautiful face she remembers from her past but can't quite place--until she realizes that this angelic face is a troubling link to the "Sweetheart" case. When she starts asking questions, she soon discovers that everyone involved wants the case to remain closed...and will stop at nothing to keep it that way.
A terrifying look into a mind obsessed with beauty, LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART is America's Queen of Suspense at the very top of her form.

"SHE WOULD BEG, BORROW OR STEAL TO GET INTO ALMACK'S. Obtaining a voucher to Almack's was about as easy as obtaining an audience with the Queen. And the ladies in charge were about as merciful as dragons. But Miss Keating, whose heart quickened at the mere thought of attending, managed a bit of fancy footwork and maneuvered her way in. Once there, she found herself the unwitting victim of a curious scandal. She also discovered Lord Blayde in the process, which made the whole experience well worth her disgrace."

""They are love, those rare early friendships." As she travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a reunion with three college chums, Kate Abrams ponders the past. Had she ever known anyone as intimately as these three? There's smart, tough Cecie; foolish, lonely Fig; and pert wealthy Ginger, who married young Kate's great love. Kate wonders whether such sublime bonds – and such deep betrayals – can survive the years. She is, after all, no stranger to life's ironies. Her father, a poor Southerner, filled her with social illusions – and took his life in the process. Her husband sustained her through later deaths. And now an ongoing battle with cancer puts Kate's own life on the line.
Forced to face dark truths about her "golden" past, Kate discovers the meaning of life and the power of true friendship. Beautifully read by Kate Nelligan, mystery, madness, revenge and awakening await Kate Abrams – and the listener –on the Outer Banks.
