Next up is the amazing…

National Bestseller Julie James!

After graduating from the University of Illinois College of Law, Julie James clerked for the United States Court of Appeals in Jacksonville, Florida. She then practiced law with one of the nation’s largest law firms for several years until she began writing screenplays. After Hollywood producers optioned two of her scripts, she decided to leave the practice of law to write full-time. Her books have been translated into thirteen languages and Julie’s most recent novel, A LOT LIKE LOVE, is a national bestseller.

Julie James lives with her husband and two children in Chicago. Her next novel, About That Night, will be available in April 2012.


Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.


Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants—and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten. . .

“James’ latest novel is sweet and spicy. The author paints a picture of missed opportunity and a reunion filled with fast quips and chemistry that heats up the pages. Readers will love the back-and-forth between the main characters, but throughout the book the rest of the cast of characters and the story is a fantastic romantic comedy. This one would be great on the big screen.”

    Time out by Jill Shalvis comes to mind. I also recently read Barefoot Season by Susan Mallery but that can also be called Chick Lit i guess. Both really good in any case.

    Hmmm my answer would be strangers in the dessert by lynne raye harris. Totally love it when the wife lost the memory and returned to the husband who doesn’t love her. the emotional intense inside the story made my crying over and over

    Sorry, reading-challenged.

    I just read Sarah Anderson’s A Man of his Word and I liked it very much indeed. But I think the last contemporary that truly captivated me was Karina Bliss’ Mr Imperfect
