Meet the Author



Stephanie Bond was seven years deep into a computer career and pursuing a master's degree at night when an instructor remarked she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit to academic journals. Once the seed was planted, however, Stephanie immediately turned to creating romance fiction in her spare time.

"I never saw myself as a comedy writer, until a Harlequin editor asked if I could write comedy. I lied and said not only did I write comedy, but I had a great idea for a book she might be interested in, and shot her an idea from the top of my head. When she said she liked it, I told her I had three chapters finished to send her right away. Then I went home and wrote like a madwoman. That book was my first Harlequin comedy, Irresistible."

Harlequin purchased Irresistible from Stephanie in the fall of 1995 for their Love and Laughter line. In another two years, she left her computer career to write full-time. She now writes for the Harlequin Temptation and Harlequin Blaze lines, having gained notoriety for her spicy romantic comedies, such as Too Hot to Sleep and It Takes a Rebel.

Stephanie lives with her husband in Atlanta, Georgia, her laptop permanently attached to her body. Readers can write her at P.O. Box 54266, Atlanta, GA 30308, or through her web site.

    Cute, quick read

    This story was really cute. It was only 48 pages, so there wasn't a lot of background information and the characters weren't as fully developed as I would like. Overall it was a sweet bedtime read. There is a 'Southern Roads' trilogy that picks up where this book left off and is focused on the Armstrong brothers. I haven't read it yet, but it seems to be another quick set of cute stories with happy endings.

    Eh

    This book started out with potential but quickly led to cheesy and immature. After she said no the book declined. There was no character development. Everybody got what they wanted with minimal effort and there was a boring, sappy happy ending. Took me an hour to read.

    Very fun series

    I love this series as much as Body Movers because of the great characters, the setting, and the fun story line. Stephanie Bond books are interesting reads and this does not disappoint.

    This little read wasn't bad but the romantic conflict arose and was resolved within the last 7-8  pages.  The build up was cute but in such a short read it probably should have been shorter.  There was a horrible natural disaster at the end which told me that this novella's goal is likely to invest the reader in the problems of the small town and not necessarily Emory and Shelby.  For some, this novella might be enough for that but not for me.  I need a hook and a natural disaster doesn't do it for me.

    Highly Recommend BEFORE Reading the Southern Roads Series!

    Very well-written and gave you the back story of Sweetness, GA. Also gave you a hint about the first bachelor. :)

    Shorter than Advertised

    I thought I'd discovered a potential find: 400 pages for $2, with ok reviews. Don't be fooled, it's only 48 pages!! I have nothing against short stories, but be forewarned, it's not worth the $$.

    Good Book

    Aubu1964
    I started this novel on Saturday June 2nd 2012. Emory was going back to Sweetness Georgia to go see Shelby Moon. She was his grade school crush. But he also liked her in high school after his freshmen year. He had stopped at the grave site of his mothers and put a bouquet of flowers on her grave. Shelby worked in a grocery store. Her father owned the store. He asked Shelby to marry him. She said no to Emory. Emory sounded the alarm and everyone in the store went in the basement in the store. Emory was in where the grocery store had been he was trying to get to Shelby and the rest in the basement. His best friend was helping him now. They got them all. I enjoyed this novel very much.

    Nice little story

    Not a great literary masterpiece but an easy quick read. I liked the characters and the positivity, which is a refreshing change from so much of the dark fare out there. Its a nice teaser for the trilogy and makes me want to read more about these people. More fleshing out of the characters could have made this into a great story.
