I just read (because someone requested it and I decided to read it before I sent it out) Just Joe by Marly Morgan.  As near as I can determine, this is her first novel and she only wrote two.  It's our loss, because she is a talented author and this is a wonderful story.  A pro football player falls in love with an adult survivor of child abuse who cannot stand to be touched.  The story touchingly follows her emotional recovery.  Don't let it put you off that this is an old series romance; this is the best book I have read in a long time in any category.

I looked for this book in the system and couldn't find it anywhere - not under the posted or unposted books.   I'd be very interested in it if you still have it.
