But with books, just like babies, birthdays are a big deal. There’s usually that one main event, Release Day, that introduction to the world that comes around just once. That’s the way it’s always been during my 25+ year career . . . until now. Now, those pre-Millennium novels have the chance to be re-born, giving me the opportunity to proudly introduce them to the reading public all over again.
Meet LOVE’S OWN REWARD . . . and Dana Ransom!
Many of you never met me in my previous author personas of Lauren Giddings, Dana Ransom and Rosalyn West. Dana and Lauren were my originals, appearing for the first time in the same month back in July, 1987 (!). Lauren only released two historical regencies but Dana was a busy girl, popping out historicals, particularly westerns, like Pilsbury during the ‘80s and ‘90s along with four contemporary romances for Zebra’s unfortunately short-lived “Lucky In Love” line.
With BelleBooks/BellBridge Books reissuing my contemporaries this year, beginning with LOVE’S OWN REWARD on 5/27/14, these four books get to celebrate new birthdays with a new publisher, new covers and, for the first time, new e-editions! So join me in saying “Happy Birthday!” to LOVE’S OWN REWARD, one of the best presents this ole gal has ever gotten!

Her act of courage destroys everything . . .
Charlene “Charley” Carter risked her life to rescue a child from a burning car. Suddenly, the quiet research assistant becomes a media darling—and a half-million dollars richer, thanks to the boy’s grateful grandparents. But big money brings big moochers and bigger betrayals. Charley retreats, wounded and suspicious about the motives of even those dearest to her.
He doesn’t trust that she’s for real . . .
Jess McMasters exposes frauds for a living, and if it means using his charms as well as his tough skills as a journalist, no problem. What’s Charlene Carter trying to gain by refusing to be interviewed by the press? Is she angling for more money—or is she hiding secrets that prove she’s nobody’s hero?
Jess goes undercover to get close to her, but the closer he gets, the less he understands. Except this: the cost for his deception could be his own heart.
Readers will find themselves mesmerized by these magical characters who symbolize hope and redemption. 4+ – Romantic Times
