With her first title with Mills & Boon, No Longer Forbidden?, a Book of the Month pick, Dani Collins is a promising new author. In love with stories about love, her journey to publication took many side streets. Thus she offers a variety in her stories from intensely emotional and passionate, to epic fantasy, to romantic comedy. One thing you will always find: an alpha male clashing with a spirited heroine. Showing a bit of spirit of her own, Dani chose to self-publish Hustled To The Altar, "Because I can." Always a contest darling, readers may remember Hustled To The Altar from RWA's Golden Heart (TM) Contest and the American Title Competition sponsored by Romantic Times. A working wife and mom, Dani writes on the weekends in an attic bedroom overlooking her tragic vegetable garden. In the summer, she is seconds away from a pristine mountain lake. In the winter she is too often on the end of a snow shovel. Like many, she wishes she could teleport to exotic locations rather than sit on airplanes, although that is one of her favourite places to read. After early adventures traveling to Europe and Australia, she settled down with her high school sweetheart and produced two children (one of each.) As the kids near the end of their school years, Dani is looking forward to more travel--most likely to Australia where she now has family, although Spain beckons as does Ireland. Dani would love to hear from you. Please contact her through her website at www.danicollins.com or email her at email@example.com.

Paige Fogarty never believed Liebe Falls’ golden boy, Sterling Roy, could want a No Good Fogarty, but one magical night, they kissed—ruining her already murky reputation. Fifteen years later, she’s still shunned, now as a professional accountant auditing Roy Furnishings. It’s a daunting task even before she’s forced to work with him.
Sterling made a fool of himself over Paige once. Never again. He only returns to the factory his mother calls his ‘legacy’ to ensure Paige doesn’t pull a fast one. When their chemistry blazes hotter than ever, he wonders if he misjudged her, but secrets come to light, including an embezzler she tries to protect, proving she’s still the wrong girl. So why does holding onto her feel so right?

I have to say this one really didn’t go the way I guessed it would. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing :) I thought that Paige and Sterling’s aborted romance – the whole wrong side of the tracks thing – would have been a bigger deal than it turned out to be. I mean, yes it did leave some scars, as most traumatic childhood events do, but there is so much more to their problems than that. Thanks to a screwy childhood, Paige is an enabler and spends way too much energy trying to fix everything for her loved ones. Which means that she somehow finds herself back in the small town that she grew up in, trying to make everything right, and having to face a lot of her demons … including Sterling. Sterling is also is dealing with family issues thanks to his parents. He’s got one of those moms – overbearing, manipulative, all about appearances and wearing blinders. And she’s pushing him to move home to run the family business. He’s got his own bones to pick with people in the town and being in such close quarters is sure to stir things up. I get why Paige is so hesitant to get involved again – it is horrible what she went thru at such an impressionable age – but I have to admire Sterling for sticking with her. He’s not perfect, which is on display with his relationship with his parents and the fight that is still going on with Paige’s brother, but he’s truly a good guy. I like these two and I enjoyed all of their crazy friends & family. Not to say that all of them are likeable, but they are fun to read and help keep the pages turning. All of the hurt feelings, family drama, and personal issues are dragged out & put on display. Secrets are revealed, the truth finally comes out, and some demons are laid to rest … all in a days work for a small town full of drama. *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book.

4 1/2 STARS! A drama-filled reunion story brings together two people who never got a real chance to be together because of teenage angst and misunderstandings. We see them try to overcome their bitterness with each other and slowly start to open their eyes to what really happened and to what degree the other was really at fault. A solid story with perhaps a few too many secondary characters to keep track of, but a pleasing conclusion and I look forward to reading the second in the series! Fifteen years after being run out of her home town in humiliation, Paige Fogarty is back! Unfortunately, so is the town's golden boy who caused the bad reputation she was given. She's stuck tolerating him for however long it takes to do an audit of the books in the business their father's run together ... then she's out of here! Sterling Roy still holds a grudge against Paige and her family as well, but as they are forced in close proximity time and again, he starts to see that things might have happened differently than he thought. Just as he's about to move forward, he realizes she's protecting an embezzler! Will they be able to get all the secrets uncovered and find a happily-ever-after, or will past deeds be unable to be overcome?
