Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review - Lori Lake
This is romance writing at its most absorbing, with all the angst and uncertainty of missed communications and misdirected intentions. Ames touches on many aspects of these two women's lives, past and present, and though the reader can't help but root for their relationship, there is no way on earth it can work for them...or could it? THE PRICE OF FAME is well worth the foray to find out the answer to that question. ~Lori L. Lake, author of Stepping Out, Different Dress, Gun Shy, Under The Gun,

    Dynamic! Intense! Suspenseful!

    When a major disaster hits Albany, New York, Katherine Kyle, a beautiful, famous, and well-known anchorwoman for a local television station, becomes the only reporter on the scene. At the same time, Jamison ¿Jay¿ Parker, Time Magazine reporter extraordinaire, who has arrived in town to conduct an interview with the Governor, is watching television as the drama unfolds and suddenly breathes out ¿it¿s her!¿ For years her dreams have been filled with pictures of a particular face, a face well remembered with beautiful eyes, eyes belonging to a woman who twice saved her from danger while they were in college. Thrilled that she finally has a name to go with the face, Jay sets out to the site of the disaster to meet, once again, her mystery savior. Jay finds her amidst all the chaos, and Katherine looks up to amazingly discover the woman who has haunted her own thoughts over the years. Katherine¿s heroics at the disaster make her big news and Jay¿s editor assigns her to do a feature article on Katherine, which means the two women will be spending lots of time together. A situation neither woman seems to mind at all. Although both women work at maintaining an impartial, professional appearance, strong feelings - intense, passionate feelings come blaring to the surface. Will they allow themselves to act on these feelings? Or will one¿s uncertainty stop a chance at love before it even starts? And whose career is suddenly put in jeopardy when they are suddenly and unexpectedly ¿outed¿? Was it malicious intent, an act of jealousy or strictly accidental? And how far will the repercussions reach? Fame, it seems, does have its price. What could it cost one or both of the women as they explore a relationship with each other? Will it bond them closer together or tear them apart? Come along the journey as Lynn Ames proves herself a force to be reckoned with as she skillfully unfolds an intense, dramatic and intriguing tale of life, loss, passion and intense love. The sequel, The Cost of Commitment, is certain to be another great book by a very talented author.

    Romance Writing at its Most Absorbing

    Kate Kyle has worked hard for many years to rise to the position of lead anchor for the WCAP TV news program in upstate New York. Little does she know that she will become an overnight sensation when disaster strikes at the state capitol, and she happens to be the only news person on the scene to relay the news live, on camera. She also helps with the rescue efforts, and her live report is carried nationally. Being thrust into the limelight has a dual positive effect: she is accorded fame, and the adoring focus brings her into contact with journalist Jay Parker, who happens to be an acquaintance from Kate¿s college days. ####### Jay and Kate¿s lives have touched before¿twice, actually, under appalling circumstances. But the third time¿s a charm, and this time around there is no stopping the attraction. They embark upon a love affair with more passion and intensity than either of them has ever felt before. But once again, disaster strikes, and this time it¿s entirely out of their control. Will the price of fame mean that these two will be crushed? ####### This is romance writing at its most absorbing, with all the angst and uncertainty of missed communications and misdirected intentions. Ames touches on many aspects of these two women¿s lives, past and present, and though the reader can¿t help but root for their relationship, there is no way on earth it can work for them¿or could it? THE PRICE OF FAME is well worth the foray to find out the answer to that question. ~Lori L. Lake, author of Stepping Out, Different Dress, Gun Shy, Under The Gun, and Ricochet In Time, and reviewer for Midwest Book Review, Golden Crown Literary Society¿s The Crown, The Independent Gay Writer, The Gay Read, and Just About Write.
