Publisher's Summary

Jane's rule about marriage: if at first you don't succeed, don't try again.
A bigamist ex-husband, an anonymous stalker, a murder inquiry. Magazine editor Jane Hamilton is not having a good month. But with the support of her best friend, Brad Manchester, she's coping--until they become lovers and Brad complicates things even more by proposing marriage.
Brad understands Jane's fears, but he's ready for a wife and family, ready to move forward. Especially when he finds out she's pregnant with his child.

Not good at all

This story seems like it has so much potential and it never gets there! A whinny heroine and a guy that loves her. The story goes on & on and it could be done in 2 hrs!
Don't buy!
