All of Joan's novels have the same underlying premise: "It's never too late to live happily ever after." Joan lives her happily ever after in the Lone Star State with her hero, her husband. They divide their time between a Houston townhouse and a small house in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country where they grow fruit trees and wine grapes--despite the hordes of tunneling gophers, trespassing skunks, herds of deer, howling coyotes, and the occasional snake or two.
Contemporary Romance
                                                   April Fool Bride

Oil heiress Madeline Quinn needs a husband by the time she turns twenty-five in order to claim her full inheritance. Mad Maddie, as the tabloids christened her, has learned the hard way that men only see dollar signs when they look at her so she decides a marriage of convenience is the only answer. She turns to the one man in the world she can trust, her housekeeper’s son who always treated her like a little sister, much to her dismay, when they were growing up-until one disastrous night when she acted impetuously.

Jake Becker hasn’t seen Maddie since the night she tried to seduce him. Why should he help the woman who changed the course of his life? Simple. Revenge.

Or is it something else?  Something that sizzles like steam heat between Maddie and Jake that neither can resist!
