Jane Bonander often takes an old subject and breathes new life into it, as she did in Warrior Heart, which booksellers claimed was "fantastic," a "must read" and "a keeper." Scent of Lilacs also involves an old plot -- the secret-baby story -- with a different twist. "Every book needs a blend of drama, heartache, humor, and fulfillment," she claims. "But if it's a romance, it must also have an internal conflict." Jane's readers will vouch for her ability to deliver it all. Her three prior romances for Pocket Books, Dancing on Snowflakes, Wild Heart, and Winter Heart, also received critical acclaim from reviewers, booksellers, and readers alike, who praised the books for their passion, suspense, well-constructed and lovable characters, and thrilling romance. The author of twelve romances, Jane Bonander is currently at work on her next novel for Pocket Books. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
