Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Police detective Carson Beckett had skirted the altar as smoothly as a sly criminal avoided handcuffs. Now the time had come to settle down and fulfill his ailing mother's wish—and he was halfway there with an unofficial promise to wed his childhood sweetheart. But first he had to repay an old family debt to the last of the Chandler heirs.

When his search led him to the gray-eyed, mesmerizing Kit Chandler, his usual logic deserted him. Instinctively, he changed from benefactor to protector when Kit became the target of someone else's wrath. And when tension turned to passion, Carson realized he was in deep. He would get to the altar, but with whom?

Dixie Browning, née Burrus was born September 9, 1930 in North Carolina. Browning considers herself foremost an artist. She studied and later taught art. She paints landscapes and seascapes in watercolor, and is listed in Who's Who in American Art. In 1975, Browning began writing a newspaper column on art. Shortly thereafter, she decided to try fiction. As she had recently begun reading romance novels, she attempted to recreate the pieces of the genre that appealed to her. This tactic worked, as in 1976, Avalon published her first two romances. She has since published over 100 category romance novels. She has been awarded a Romance Writers of America RITA Award, and been a five-time RITA finalist. She has also won three Maggies, and numerous awards from the National Federation of Press Women and the NC Press Club. At the end of 2004, after Browning had submitted yet another manuscript, she realized that writing was not as exciting for her as it had been. She began painting again, and now concentrates primarily on her art. Browning cofounded and served as the first president of The Watercolor Society of North Carolina. She is also a co-owner of Browning Artworks in Frisco, North Carolina. Her works include Driven to Distraction, Her Passionate Plan B, Her Man Upstairs, and Beckett's Convenient Bride.
