Now this gifted storyteller returns to the exquisite age of manners in a delightfullly lavish tale of these bold and enchanting young ladies...the American Beauties. NEVER AGAIN As a beautiful American debutante, Raine Montand has charmed all of London. But in secret, she plays another role -- that of Raynard the Fox, whose scorching political cartoons can make or break a career. Raine is devastated when one of her drawings is responsible for making Parliament member Gavin Sutherland a murder suspect. Vowing to make amends, she poses as a widow and seeks a job as Gavin's secretary, in an attempt to discover the truth that will save him. Alone and embittered, deserted by family, friends, and fianceae, Gavin is forced to resign from Parliament. His only supporter is the lovely but mysterious young lady in his employ, whose assistance could be invalauable in clearing his name. Gavin senses the risk of trusting one about whom he knows so little. But as their investigation continues, both Gavin and Raine realize the greatest risk of all is love -- and the grandest reward.
About the Author

A man you could proudly take home to your mother," she says,indicating her model is the dashing Irish-American man she took home to her own parents twenty-nine years ago. A Power day? "Arising at five, sipping coffee while the sun chases the moon over the hill country of south Texas, then upstairs to my office to work. In my jammies. Natch. By two, I'm ready to see real live people. Go to the gym, Lift weights. Sweat a little, before I cook dinner." Must be a Power-ful lot of fun. "Yes, with many rewards," Jo-Ann admits. "Readers write how much they appreciate my care with historical accuracy, as well as the love stories." Jo-Ann has also received many awards, including Best Novel of 1993, and the nomination for outstanding Career Achievement from the Romantic Times Publishing Group.
