  2. This sounds like a fun romance. I like the description in the book's beginning, and the 56 makes me want to know if the truce was accepted. I think I'd enjoy this story.

  12. I'm not big on romance anymore, but I do like the cover and 56. I've been in a funk lately, but hope to rejoin your meme next week.

  13. Every now and then I like picking up a Harlequin to sort of take a break between heavier books - this one sounds like a fun one to read.

  14. I've known many Cooper Ford types -- they grow 'em like that here in Texas. Great beginning!
