More About the Author

Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked that she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?'" Bond grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky where the entertainment choices were few. Luckily, she had a beloved aunt who shared her passion for reading. "When she visited once a year, she brought boxes and boxes of gothic novels by Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney and lush historical romances--I was in heaven! So suddenly thinking about writing in the genre of the books I loved was very exciting." After writing every spare moment for two years, Stephanie sold her first romantic comedy manuscript, IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. Two years later, she walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 60 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, and Mira Books, and is most well-known for her BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series. Her newest series is TWO GUYS DETECTIVE AGENCY (about two sisters whose last name is Guy). Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two different stories: one creepy and one very funny! 27 Dec 2011
By 4everSLAUGHTERED - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bluebird Winter.
My least favorite of the two. When divorced Kathleen goes into early labor during a snow storm she takes a chance and makes an attempt to drive herself to a nearby clinic. She ends up sliding into a ditch. Derek, an obstetrician specializing in critically ill newborns, is driving by and finds Kathleen clenching her stomach in pain. Derek is a total stranger and prepares Kathleen for birth back at her home. I thought Derek had some bizarre thoughts while watching and waiting. After Kathleen gives birth he observes the love she has for her new baby and falls instantly in love with both of them. I felt Derek was creepy and too obsessed with the baby, as well as, Kathleen. I think his friends and co-workers redeemed him in the creepy category, but overall this story was just not believable for me and I did not feel any chemistry between the two, just awkwardness.

Naughty or Nice.
I loved this story. Cindy runs a beautiful hotel that caters to unusual clientele, such as, vampire conventions, adult toy conventions, and syfy conventions. Her problem is the hotel is run by a sophisticated money hungry corporation who is sending a consultant to evaluate the staff and the profitability of the hotel. The staff thinks they have it all figured out and believes a certain demanding guest must be the corporate spy. Handsome Eric, a "salesman" and hotel guest, experiences an instant attraction to Cindy. Cindy has an instant attraction to Eric even though she thinks his profession is unusual. Getting to the steamy romance that erupts between the two was full of amusing mishaps and hilarious misunderstandings that had me laughing and quickly turning the page to read more. Cindy needed everything to go right but everything goes wrong. Cindy falls in love with Eric, but finds out something about him that changes her mind and breaks her heart. Their romance stops abruptly (except for the one encounter on the roof, wink wink). But Eric, who also falls in love, will not let go and finds a way to confess his love and keep Cindy in his life. I loved the ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Classics" to avoid 28 Dec 2008
By Katie Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Bluebird Winter" by Linda Howard was first published in 1987 and it shows its age. A pregnant woman goes into labor prematurely in the middle of a snowstorm, and an ob-gyn specializing in premie births just happens to find her on the side of the road and helps her. After she gives birth, doc decides that he absolutely must have both the baby and her mother - despite knowing absolutely nothing about mom - and sets about manipulating and coercing mom into a marriage of convenience. Even though the doc's controlling and manipulative, mom comes to realize that it's just because he loves her and wants to take care of her. Blech.

"Naughty or Nice?" by Stephanie Bond was first published in 1998, and features a heroine who is too stupid to live and a hero who thinks she's just cute and adorable anyway. Our heroine of this story is the general manager of a quirky San Francisco hotel in danger of corporate downsizing. The hero is the man in charge of determining whether or not the hotel is up to corporate standards. A promising premise quickly disintegrates into ridiculousness, stupidity, and frequent eye-rolling. If you're a fan of Bond's TSTL heroines, you'll likely enjoy this story, but I recommend avoiding it.

3.0 out of 5 stars reissues- 26 Oct 2009
By LAD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really wished I had checked this site for reviews before purchasing this book. I am really tired of previously released stories being repackaged with other previously printed stories and sold as something new. I had already read the Bond story but not the Linda Howard story so it wasn't a complete waste of money - although a story from the 80's is a bit out of date. I don't think we should have to open the book to see if/when a story had been previously published - but I will in the future. Harlequin must love this marketing tactic.
