A Book. Another Book.


Deeper in Sin: the wicked Dukes by Sharon Page.  Page 37 says, "Panic hit. For a moment, her faith in him wobbled." No author photo. The vague author bio makes me think Page is a pen name. Her website bio makes me think not. Website does have an author photo. My favorite author photos are the ones where you can see the subject's wristwatch and read the time.

Audiobook on CD

Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes by Jules Moulin. 7 CDs at 8 hours. That is a long title. Single mom isn't make room for a love life. No author photo. The narrator, Ann Marie Lee, has a photo. Lee has red hair and does some TV acting. I have brown hair and do internet blathering. My dog has black hair and lies in the sun on the driveway.
