Author: 
Nicola Cornick

For the first 18 years of her life Nicola lived in Yorkshire, within a stone's throw of the moors that had inspired the Brontë sisters. She wrote bits and pieces of novels in her spare time but never finished any of them. Eventually, she sent in the first three chapters of a Regency romance to a publisher and, although they were rejected, she found she had become so addicted to writing that she could not stop. Happily, her third attempt was accepted and she has never looked back. Read more about The books of Nicola Cornick

Lyn Stone

While working at Boeing as an illustrator, Stone had the idea of trying to freelance book covers. Since she liked to paint faces and figures, romance novels seemed a logical choice. While studying the market on covers, she became firmly hooked on the contents of the books and decided to try writing instead. Lyn feels a special affinity for England and Scotland with their wonderful castles and intriguing history. The American South and Southwest are her favorite settings for contemporary adventures.

Title: 
Best of Everything

Alicia Black Sullivan swore to never repeat her father's mistakes: she would never break any promises, she would never be unfaithful. And most important of all, when she got married, it would be for good. And she really does love Phillip, the assistant pastor of her father's church. She just happens to love money--and the things it can buy--as well. Alicia was born to the good life, she's entitled to the best, and she'll do anything to get it.
