Janet Evanovich

So many men, so little time
New York City, 1894. Heiress Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother and his friend, Jack Culhane, on their adventures. While they are off seeing the world, she's stuck at home, frightening off the list of men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. Caroline longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title a completely unacceptable suitor, in the eyes of Caroline's mother. Can Jack and Caroline find love, against all odds, with danger looming and despite the forces pulling them apart?

About the Author
Bestselling author Janet Evanovich is the recipient of the Crime Writers Association's John Creasy Memorial, Last Laugh, and Silver Dagger awards, as well as the Left Coast Crime's Lefty award, and is the two-time recipient of the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association's Dilys award. She lives in New Hampshire.

When Dorien Kelly was fresh out of the University of Michigan, she worked as a waitress while pondering the writing life. After a while, she decided she'd probably make more money as a lawyer. So back to school she went. After graduating, she practiced commercial law for several years. Ultimately, she realized that while a legal career was lucrative, it was making her too Type A to survive. Since she was tired of billing out her life by the quarter-hour and wearing pantyhose, she turned back to writing. Her first novel, a romantic comedy called "Designs on Jake" was published by Harlequin Books in 2002. A lot more books--and some pretty crazy times--followed. These days she's co-authoring romance novels with the amazing Janet Evanovich, working on her own projects, and thanking her luck stars for three patient and completely awesome children, and her own happily-ever after with a wonderful man.
