As I catch up on everything I missed while I was away, and prepare for next week’s trip, I figured I’d post all the reviews I’ve received for No Accounting for Cowboys so far. (You did know I had a new book out, right? ) Anyway, I’ve been pleased with […]

Slick’s review of Deliberate Deceptions is up on Guilty Pleasures today. And yes, she gave it this beautiful “True Gem” sticker on the post. I made Slick cry when she read something about Chad. I can’t tell you how pleased (and humbled) that makes me. 😉
