Book Description: Jane Lofton may have grown up as a nobody, but she doesn't stay one for long. Not once she figures out that hard work, tenacity and blond ambition are a girl's best friend. Of course, having the right husband doesn't hurt either. But being rich and successful is not all it's cracked up to be. Okay, maybe it is -- but life is still tough, dammit.
Jane is so busy rescheduling her next liposuction, shopping for clothes she doesn't need and bragging about her latest real estate sale that she hasn't noticed the callus forming around her heart. Her husband is screwing around on her, and she talks to her daughter through a therapist. No, life is not perfect.
So what should she do? Jane's not sure, but she figures a drive in her "Bimmer" might help her relax. A broken fingernail momentarily diverts her attention, and when she looks up she sees an eighteen-wheeler bearing down on her. Suddenly, Jane's problems become incidental. She barely escapes with her life, but not before she's promised God, and herself, that she is going to "do good" for the rest of her life.
So how come "doing good" is so hard?
According to Brenda Joyce's Website, She plans to write at least 2 books a year for the Deadly series depending how the next three releases sell... she would like to have them spaced nine months apart.

From The Publisher (America's #1 national bestseller is back with a wonderfully delightful sequel to Love Me Forever):
Being the only female in a family of 16 uncles can make a young woman feel protected and secure ... that is, until she falls in love. Just how does a lovely sprite outwit all those meddling males to enjoy the charms of a handsome suitor? Most girls wouldn't have a chance. But this vivacious young lady is far from ordinary...
Set in the breathtaking wilds of Scotland, and filled with the trademark elements that have made Johanna Lindsey one of the most wildly popular authors of our time, The Pursuit is a delightful tale of daring, adventure, and, of course, true love.

Shirlee Busbee's Swear By the Moon
Backcover: Haunted by tragedy and scandal, Thea Garrett guards her wounded heart by playing the role of notorious outcast for all it is worth, never giving a second thought to love. Then London's loveliest, wealthiest social pariah meets the brooding, handsome Patrick Blackburne, a man protecting wounds of his own-until he lays eyes on the remarkable Miss Garrett. Suddenly, Blackburne is willing to foreswear his famously wicked ways. But Thea can't take any man at his word, least of all Blackburne. Only a vicious circle of blackmail and murder that threatens to destroy them both can make her face her pent-up passion and hidden longings-and set them all free....

* The Chase was moved back to its original release date,
Brenda Joyce's new hardcover, The Chase will go on sale July 2002. This book "[is] more romantic and even funny at times, inspite of the suspense." Brenda states on her website. "The heroine, a socialite dedicated to charities for kids and dogs, finds her husband murdered at his birthday party with a stranger in their midst--the hero. She latches onto him like a dog to a bone, only to learn that he is a Nazi hunter with an axe to grind... And she finds herself on a quest with him to bring in a man who had spied and murdered for the Germans during World War Two--and who will still kill anyone who gets in his way.
Yes, this is romantic suspense. It is also a star-crossed love story--I had to go back to World War Two in the first days of the blitz and tell the reader what really happened..."
She Continues on to say "This one was a killer to write, no pun intended! But I think the hero-heroine romance is a bit different from what I've done in the past, more fun, and I've added more romance to this one. Hope everyone enjoys!"
