Christine Rimmer is best known for her lovable, sometimes offbeat characters and her finely honed talent for telling the kind of story that keeps readers turning pages. She has created two popular series, The Jones Gang and Conveniently Yours, both of which can be found in Silhouette Special Edition.

Since the publication of her first book, a Harlequin Temptation, in 1987, Christine has written 35 contemporary romances for Silhouette Books. Her books consistently appear on national bestseller lists, including the Waldenbooks and USA Today lists.

Two of Christine;romances have been nominated for the Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award. Her 1998 Silhouette Special Edition A Hero for Sophie Jones, won Romantic Times Magazine's Reviewers' Choice Award. Three times, Romantic Times has nominated Christine for Series Storyteller of the Year.

A California native who first longed to be an actress, Christine earned her theater degree from California State, Sacramento and then went to New York where she studied acting, became an extremely capable waitress, and starred in The Importance of Being Earnest in a church in Flatbush.

Later, she moved to Southern California, where she began her writing career with short stories, plays, and poems. Her poems and short stories were published in a number of small literary journals. Her plays were produced at The Back Alley and Group Theaters in Southern California and have been published by Dramatists Play Service and West Coast Plays.

Christine wrote her first romance in 1984--and found she loved writing romances almost as much as she loved reading them. She has been telling love stories ever since and plans to go on doing just that for decades more.

She now makes her home in Oklahoma with her husband, younger son and two very contented cats named Tom and Ed.

In this first of the 12 LONE STAR COUNTRY CLUB series Ms Rimmer sets the table and does a great job of it as only Ms Rimmer can. Flynt Carson along with his 3 other bachelor friends find a baby girl on the 9th hole of the exclusive golf course. She happens to have a note attached to her blanket-the note states 'this is your daughter, Lena' but doesn't say to whom she belongs. All 4 men feel she could be his. Flynt takes charge of the baby he thinks she belongs to he and Josie Lavender who he does hire to be the nanny. Josie has her own agenda-she wants Flynt! Both Josie and Flynt are wonderful and their romance is fun to read even though Flynt tortures himself but with Josie's help he sees he is a good guy after all. Grace, Flynt's mother, is a great character. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
