Jackie wrote romance novels for Harlequin for 16 years and has more than a million books in print worldwide. In 2013 she embraced digital books and is bringing all of her favorite titles to Kindle readers. All are revised and edited for the contemporary reader, often retitled and with exciting, new covers. Whether you are an earlier fan or new, you will find the same charming characters, Jackie’s edgy humor, and irresistible dialogue on every page.
