Praise for the novels of Celeste Bradley
SCOUNDREL IN MY DREAMS

“Bradley has done it again: created a memorable Runaway Brides story that fills your heart with joy and laughter, mixed with tears. Even though fans of this series realzie who the adorable Meoldy's father must be, it's still a pleasure to read. Let your spirit fly and savor this wondrous read!” --RT Book reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)

ROGUE IN MY ARMS

“Bradley doesn't disappoint with the second in her Runaway Brides trilogy, which is certain to have readers laughing and crying. Her characters leap off the page, especially little three year old Melody, the precocious "heroine," and her three fathers. There's passion, adventure, non-stop action and secrets that make the pages fly by.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)

“When it comes to crafting fairy tale–like, wonderfully escapist historicals, Bradley is unrivaled, and the second addition to her Runaway Brides trilogy cleverly blends madcap adventure and sexy romance.” –Booklist

Praise for the novels of Susan Donovan

“This is a terrific book and one that fans of Ms. Donovan, and new readers of first-class romantic comedies, don’t want to miss.”—RTR Reviews

THE GIRL MOST LIKELY TO…

“An exceptional novel with humor and pathos and rich in detail, and the finely put together characters make this a story worthy of our Perfect 10 award and a must-read. You’ll laugh, cry, and your heart will break over this brilliant story of a man and woman—what most wondrous stories end up being about.”—Romance Reviews Today

“A wonderfully convoluted tale of love lost and found, secret pregnancies and spousal abuse, Donovan’s latest shows us the healing power of forgiveness and the strength found in the love of family. It’s peopled with complex characters who learn much about themselves and those they love through the course of this compelling story.”—RT BOOKreviews

A RITA Award finalist

“Sexy and funny. Donovan takes the marriage-of-convenience plot and gives it a fun update that will leave readers grinning. ...these characters are filled with genuine warmth and charm.”—RT BOOKreviews
