Dear Reader:

In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I wrote twelve short romance novels. Red-hot screwball comedies, each and every one of them. The romances were originally published between the years 1988 and 1992. All immediately went out of print and could be found only at used bookstores and yard sales.

I'm happy to tell you that those stories have now been re-released by HarperCollins, presented in almost original form. I've done only minor editing to correct some embarrassing bloopers missed the first time around.

Hero at Large was the very first book published. It's about a sexy guy who cooks a potholder in spaghetti sauce and charms a single mom and former world-class ice skater with the promise of a ride on his Zamboni. It's got broken bones, giant turkeys, cantankerous cars, and Aunt Edna.

This was the book that changed my life forever and made me a published author. When Hero finally reached the bookstores, I was almost arrested for loitering in Walden's. I stationed myself in the romance section and wouldn't leave until I saw someone buy my book. It took three days!


Bestselling author Janet Evanovich is the winner of the New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award and multiple Romantic Times awards, including Lifetime Achievement. She is also a longstanding member of RWA.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unrealistic and predictable. While I thought the reader C.J. Critt was one of the better voices I have listened to in audio books, I just couldn’t get into the story. The decisions made by the characters (mostly Chris) seemed so unrealistic that less than half way through the 1 disc I knew that this book just wasn’t for me. Most people would give up at that point but one of my quirks (for lack of a better word) is that if I start a book, I have to finish it. So I trudged on. Although I didn’t feel much of a connection with Chris (or any of the characters for that matter) I did find her career as a skating coach to be interesting. I would have liked for there to be more focus on that, but I do realize that her job wasn’t exactly the point of the story.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just not into romance books anymore. 2.25 stars Chris is a figure skating coach. When she has car trouble, construction worker Ken stops to help her out, but she manages to break his arm. In an odd twist of events, he ends up living with her, her daughter and her aunt. At one time, I enjoyed the G-rated romance genre, but it's definitely not my thing anymore. The characters were stereotypical romance novel male/female. I should have been counting the number of times I either rolled my eyes, or the words "ridiculous" or "pathetic" went through my head. At one point, I also thought "vomit-inducing". I gave it the extra 1/4 star because of a brief lull in the middle that wasn't so sickening. I'm also a figure skating fan, so I think that may be part of what encouraged me to pick it up to begin with... that and the cute cover with animals on the front. Silly me, shouldn't have bothered!
