Product Description

Review

"Passion, wit, warmth-thoroughly charming." --Stella Cameron, author of "Wait For Me"

From the Author

If romance is what you want....
Growing up in a small town in Southern Indiana, where the local library offered only a single rack of romance novels, it didn’t take me long to figure out that there was something missing from my life. My pursuit of that elusive something began at a very early age, when I started penning my own romances to make up for the lack of them at the library. I had discovered something at the age of twelve that most people don’t ever figure out:

If romance is what you want, sometimes you have to make it yourself!

And that’s the motto by which I’ve tried to live my life, pursuing my college degree in fine arts, instead of something "sensible" like business; moving to New York City at the age of twenty-two...even eloping to Italy when I found the man of my dreams (who, wouldn’t you know it, I met when I was fifteen, right in my own hometown)! A lot of people would say that there isn’t anything romantic about getting married on April Fool’s Day, which my husband and I did, but as we explained to our families at the time, Only Fools Fall In Love....

And that’s just how the heroine of my first historical romance novel, Where Roses Grow Wild, feels. Pegeen MacDougal doesn’t have much time for romantic sentiment--not when she’s busy single-handedly raising her hellion of a nephew. But when the arrogant and handsome Lord Edward Rawlings appears on her doorstep in search of the heir to his father’s dukedom, Pegeen is hard pressed to remember that she thinks romantic love is drivel, much less that she despises everything about the British aristocracy....

Stella Cameron, author of Wait For Me (Warner Books) calls Where Roses Grow Wild "thoroughly charming," a book with "passion, wit, and warmth." I hope you’ll enjoy reading Where Roses Grow Wild as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Be sure to look for my next historical romance from St. Martin’s Press, Portrait of My Heart, due out in January 1999.

I hope my title line does not sound condescending, because it is exactly what I mean. I have been reading Jilly Cooper for years, and Patricia Cabot's first novel seems to me to be full of the same potential. I loved the tongue-in-cheek humor, and the way the two major characters developed so well. As other reader reviewers have stated, it seems a pity when the book finishes, for I would love to know how life progressed for them. Surely Lord Edward got over his first rapt adoration of new wife and new daughter, and started eyeing the local scene (perhaps from the back of a restive stallion in the hunt) -- and I would really enjoy reading about how the initimitable Pegreen foils the potential rival for his affections!

What a pleasure to read such a marvelously fresh romance novel. Filled with adventure, wit, good strong, likeable characters. Bravo for a fine debut of a very promising author.

Good book - I will read more of her early ones. The story moved fairly quickly and was quite interesting.
