    I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, but I'm very glad I

    I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, but I'm very glad I read this one! Kate Kelly's characters grabbed me from the very first page and remained in my heart long after I closed the book. The hero and heroine had both been through so much, and while it affected their aspirations and their choices, it never made them self-pitying or selfish. The characters of Nell's niece and nephew were skillfully drawn, making them appealing yet totally realistic as children who have had to deal with too much in their young lives. I felt very protective of them and cheered Nell and Jordan's efforts to give them back their childhood. Even the secondary characters who live in the house Jordan inherited from his aunt are well-rounded and interesting without taking away from the central story.

    I highly recommend this book for readers who like their romance both realistic and uplifting!

    A wonderful new voice

    Superromance is my favorite of the Harlequin lines because of the latitude authors seem to have to write different kinds of stories. Over the years, there have been some really excellent voices emerge from it. Kate Kelly is going to be one of those voices, I think. Good writers don't just tell a good story, they also tell you something real about life. That's what this author does. May there be many more Superromances in her future.
