Hott Synopsis:

Dylan is losing his mind. He must be if he’s stepping into a fight that the superficial Genevieve Beaumont just started. Sure, he agrees that “The Little Drummer Boy” has no place in The Speckled Lizard but a girl fight over it? So not worth it!

There must be something wrong with him – besides his obvious missing parts – that causes Dylan Caine to take up for the underdog. Boy, he’s going to need an attorney to get him out of this mess!

Hott Review:

What I liked: I loved this book! Though it’s not at all as the synopsis makes it sound. This book is about a superficial girl finding out that maybe there is more to herself than she ever thought possible. It was tremendously endearing & re-readable!
What I didn’t like: There were times when the book was a bit confusing because it was pulling characters and events from the rest of the series and was a bit overwhelming.

My Review

Author Bio:

I’m not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.

Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.

After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.

Through it all — through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor — I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.

I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try — their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 30 books later, I’ve come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the “that’s-it!” feeling I get when a story is flowing.

I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.

Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can’t imagine my life any other way.
