I just got a very pleasant surprise, in the absolute last place I would have looked for it.

I was flipping through the final Kindle pages of the story I just finished and something caught my eye.

-KEEPER BOOKSHELF … right after a few lines from a review I’d done for a story by this particular author.  That’s me!  Stunned, is probably what I felt at that moment.

Oh, sure, it’s not that big of a deal  (yeah, right)  to see your comments were picked out by the author as worth while to put among the blurbs about their books.  Oh, who am I kidding – it’s a huge deal to me.

And there are probably more out there that I”m not aware of – since I don’t go back and scout out the books I’ve read and reviewed.  That would be… silly.  *grin*

So right here and now, I’d like to say publicly to any and all authors that have put a line or two of my reviews next to their books:

Thank you!  It matters more than you know to my own heart.

Brenna Jamison doesn’t want a husband. She may be widowed and pregnant, but she doesn’t need a man in her life–particularly not strong-willed, close-mouthed, drop-dead gorgeous Jed McCall.

Jed doesn’t want a wife. He’s raising his nephew, Tuck, just fine by himself, thank you very much. And when beautiful, tempting Brenna comes back to take over her father’s ranch, Jed wants nothing more than to keep her out of his life.

Tuck has a better idea… But he doesn’t know about the past they share–one that Jed doesn’t want to remember and Brenna can’t forget. When life throws them together again, Brenna discovers that Jed matters more than she wishes he would. And try as he will, Jed can’t get Brenna out of his mind.

Yes, they have a past. But the question now is: can they have a future?
