Business turns personal in Outbid by the Boss...
When Chas Porter catches Samantha Redfern bidding on an antique candlestick that rightfully belongs to him, he's furious! As his senior appraiser, she should be in New York, not flying solo at an estate auction north of London.
But this is no ordinary candlestick; it's the perfect mate to the only possession of worth Sam's beloved grandparents took when they fled England. What she doesn't know is that it's part of a much larger collection Chas will do almost anything to recover. Even if it means insisting the delectable Miss Redfern accompany him to Porter Hall...

About the Author
Anne Stephenson and Susan Brown first met in the Honours Journalism program at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, where they found not only were they in the same classes, they were sharing the same teeny, tiny dorm room. It could have been a disaster, but once Susan agreed to take the bed closest to the window, they quickly became fast friends, sharing excellent adventures both on and off campus, not realizing that when they graduated and went their separate ways, Anne to work in corporate communications, and Susan to write for a daily newspaper, they wouldn't see each other for years. And that when they finally did meet up, with husbands and children in tow, they would decide, over a glass of chilled chardonnay, how much fun it would be to write together.
Considering they didn't live in the same city, let alone the same country (and still don't), they knew it was going to be a challenge. But technology, and a common goal to succeed, saved the day. Using phone, fax, and email, they wrote two highly-successful children's mysteries -- The Mad Hacker and Something's Fishy as Ash Lake - and then adapted them for television, co-producing "Amber & Elliot" for the Family Channel.
When not collaborating, Susan and Anne have followed independent, yet similar, career paths, freelancing, writing fiction and teaching workshops at the college and university level. But writing solo was never as much fun as sharing the laughter and hard work that goes with a career in publishing.
The romance of it all caught them...Enter Stephanie Browning.
Anne and Susan are having a blast and are hard at work creating luscious new stories. Watch for two new Stephanie Browning titles in the new year!
