A funny, sexy romance to warm your heart.

Every woman makes mistakes. Meet Stormy Clarkson, haunted by the three whoppers she made that changed her life forever. She keeps her distance from men, but now she's crushing on totally gorgeous, sexy Sean Butler, owner of Sierra Verde Winery.

Sean's been after her for six months, but she's resisted every advance. She can't risk another mistake, and Sean scares her because of the way he makes her feel.

Stormy learned some hard lessons from the men who wanted her for her face and her body, but not for herself. Armed with iron self-control and the desire never to risk her heart, she's determined to deny what she feels for Sean.

Then, one night he kisses her, and that changes everything.

Sean Butler was once an interrogator for the U.S. Army. He knows a lie when he hears one, and that's all he hears in Stormy's icy refusals. Sean's smart enough to know that the only way to deal with a control freak is to make her lose control.

The beautiful blonde had better be on her guard because Sean's got a plan to win her heart. His plan? Whatever it takes.

OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER is Book 1 of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE GIRLY, a new series by Joan Reeves. This book contains a Linked Table of Contents and Bonus Features.

Applause for the Sexy, Funny Romance Novels by Joan Reeves

"A Perfect Evening Read... This (Old Enough To Know Better) is truly a feel-good book. Not too long and not too short. Just the perfect size for an evening read. Sean is wonderful and sexy and Stormy is aptly named. She is complicated and emotional and needs to feel the love and lust of a good man. The two of them together is very sweet and yet very steamy. A must read!" ~ by prsmn2

"Ya Gotta Love Joan Reeves... All of her books are great fun. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them and can't wait for MORE. The right amount of misunderstandings, energy, sexual tension and naughty action to go around. I loved the fast read...." ~ by Kayealoha, Simi Valley CA

"There are so many things I love about the way Reeves writes -- her characters are well developed, the situations they're put in are compelling and the dialogue is frequently humorous. But it's the underlying emotion that continues to draw me further into every story." ~ by Marilyn W., Chicago, IL USA

Editorial Reviews

AnneMarie Novark
This was my first Joan Reeves romance. It was also my first older heroine/younger hero romance. I wasn't sure how that was going to work, but from the first paragraph on, I knew I was in the hands of a master storyteller. Ms. Reeves paints vivid word pictures that bring the characters to life, and the settings become a virtual reality. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Definitely a fun read.
C. Wicklund
Stormy Clarkson is a beauty. Even in middle-age she's "knocking 'em dead." But that beauty has been more of a burden than a gift, a burden that's led her into destructive relationships and left her feeling bad about her choices in life. Along comes mega-sexy Sean Butler, a "younger man," .... A take-control guy, he has Stormy in his sights. But how does Sean convince the reluctant lady of his sincerity when her greatest fear is making another mistake?

Meet the Author

Hello! I'm Joan Reeves. I write funny, sexy, romances because I think the world needs more love and laughter. And passion! And committed relationships!


10. Joan Reeves writes funny! Hey, that's what it says above!
9. Joan Reeves writes sexy! Also above--duh!
8. Joan Reeves is an overnight success, and it only took her 25 years!
7. Joan Reeves writes stories that are like a little vacation between the covers of a book.
6. Joan Reeves has a daughter getting married next spring. She can use the bucks. Seriously, do you know how much weddings cost?
5. Joan Reeves believes in the Weed Whacker Theory of Success. "Life is a big field of weeds. In the center of this giant patch of weeds is something we want--something called success. We're all on paths that resemble the spokes of a wheel, trying to get to the hub. Some of us have machetes, some have riding lawn mowers. Me? I'm armed with a rusty pocket knife." I need all the help I can get.
4. Joan Reeves is basically lazy. If you don't buy her books, she'll stop writing and while away the hours reading her friends' books, watching What Not To Wear (she could be a poster girl), cheesy sci fi movies, Buffy reruns, and The Closer--just to name a few of her TV addictions. She'll gain 50 pounds from eating Ding Dongs (required snack of The Closer), mope around the house complaining that she's fat, spend all her remaining book sale money on a new wardrobe, refuse to wear the new clothes because they're ugly, join a nudist colony, and get expelled because she'll do nothing but gripe and moan all day and who wants to see a naked fat woman complaining about how she could have been a contender?
3. Joan Reeves writes stories that make you feel good.
2. Joan Reeves needs a new pair of shoes. Some of those really cute round-toe Mary Jane's at DSW and maybe a pair of gold evening shoes because they're so darn sexy. But, she can't support her shoe addiction without book sales. Shoes: more addictive than crack yet costs the same--but they're legal!
1. Joan Reeves writes stories that will leave you with a smile.

Seriously, (Oh, gee, *whine, whine* do we have to be serious?) I'm a multi-published print and ebook author and a longtime freelance writer who is published all over the Internet under my own name, various pseudonyms, and as a ghost.

My motto? "It's never too late to live happily ever after!"
