Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The price of Brand Ellsworth's dukedom was betrothal to Adria, a family friend's three-year-old daughter.  It didn't seem too high a price to a cocky young man who was able to trade his family's viscountcy for a duke's coronet.  But as years pass and the man becomes the title, the price of wedding the strange young woman who inherited her father's strange extra senses seems much, much too high. 

He has avoided her for years but now marriage looms.  Brand steps into a clumsy trap to force a breach of the betrothal and sends for Adria to break the news. When she steps into his study, Brand sees instantly that Adria is his Eden without the apple. But he chose the apple. Is their paradise lost?

If you were born in Hartsville you were surely fated to adore romance. Mary Anne Graham was born an Outlaw in the tiny town of Hartsville, South Carolina. She attended Francis Marion in nearby Florence back when it was a college rather than a university and earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with double minors in history and mass communications. She went on to USC Law School - think South not West - and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree. She (somehow) survived and passed the bar exam. She practices law in South Carolina.When she wasn't busy writing legal briefs, Mary Anne read and re-read her shelves and shelves of works by authors like Johanna Lindsey, Catherine Coulter, Elizabeth Lowell, Susan Johnson, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Julia Quinn. Although her career as an attorney called to her passion for justice, it wasn't quite the right kind of passion for the lady from Hartsville who always dreamed of writing a book of her own - someday. Deciding that the only wasted dream is the one abandoned, she sat down to work on populating her bookshelves with some tales of her own. She now lives in "paradise" - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with John, her computer programmer husband and her sons Zack and Sam. All of her men spend much of their free time battling each other at computer games over their home network. Mary Anne used to feel a bit left out of the wired world the men inhabited, but it suits her just fine these days, because she is at her laptop, crafting a happily ever after where second chances and new beginnings are always possible.Blog:
