Book Description

Golden Quill Award for Best First Book

The Healer vs. the Lawyer. Energy healer, Persephone Jones, has a new neighbor in Peeler, Oklahoma—hot shot lawyer, Jason Brooks. They meet in June; it would take a miracle to bring these two together by Christmas. She bans white sugar; he’s a chocolate cookie connoisseur. She’s about saving Mother Earth while he protects the interests of Big Business. Their attraction is mutual, but disturbing. And life gets even more complicated when the whole town is caught in a conflict that pits these two on opposite sides of a political fence….Foreword Magazine says AIN’T LOVE GRAND? is “written with a fresh voice, an impeccable sense of comedic timing, vivid narrative, and fascinating characters.”


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

They first meet when he tackles her to the ground. All Persephone Jones was doing was trying to stop the bulldozer from destroying the herb garden she planted on property adjoining hers. But her new neighbor, Jason Brooks, was not only building a beautiful new house, but also a landing strip over her garden. Persephone and Jason couldn't be more different. He is a well-known, high-powered defense attorney with money to burn. She's the illegitimate daughter of a flower child, and dispenses wheat-grass smoothies as well as herbal remedies from her modest shop. And neither of them can understand their mutual attraction. In spite of appearances, Persephone doesn't abide by all hippie principles. For instance, when Jason suggests that they make their relationship more intimate, she demurs. For her sex is an important step, indicating that marriage is on the horizon. He feels differently, but love will have its way in this charming tale of opposites attracting. Maria Hatton

Review

Dana Taylor is a fabulous new author who has written a laugh-out-loud romance between a hero and heroine who are so different from each other, yet still manage to fall in love.  This is comedy at its best.  The plot is strong, and you can't help but become engrossed in the daily lives of Persephone and Jason.  You just know they are meant to be together. AIN'T LOVE GRAND? is a wonderful story that you surely will not want to miss. ---Robyn Reo Romance Reviews Today

4.0 out of 5 stars cute book April 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book, it was a great story. It would have been 5 stars for me if there had been no religious intrusion in the story. Both lead characters were fun to read, and I was definitely rooting for them to get together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly One Terrific Love Story!!! July 6, 2011
By D.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly loved this book and think it could be one of the best all-around "love stories" I've read to date.

I luuuvvv that the Hero and Heroine must decide if their love for each other is worth compromising on all other aspects of their lives.

In addition, the herbal healing element is terrific and the pig-farming prospects are a stitch...although quite a smelly stitch at that! LOL!

Tons of great heart and a few great laughs too in this little gem!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars My first ebook - loved it! May 8, 2012
By lriuqs
Format:Kindle Edition
My first experience with an ebook and was most enjoyable - good story line - loved the characters. Just wish the book was longer and the characters and story line more developed and in depth. All in all a good clean read. Will look for more work by the author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what it was billed to be April 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I typically read only Christian fiction because I don't want to have to worry about if it has illicit sex scenes. But that's exactly what you get in this book! The description was explicit and not only that, but against Biblical principles. Also the inclusion of spiritualism crossed the line. I would not recommend this book to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't Love Grand a cut above for Romance novels February 18, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I almost hate to see this book placed in the Romance Novel category, because I think it should be billed as a great romantic comedy. The characters are wonderful. It's one of those books that you find yourself in the last pages and wishing you didn't have to finish it. What a great first book for this new Oklahoma author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average romance novel April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a story about how Persephone and Jason fall in love, but it's not just a romance novel. It's actually quite funny and I truly enjoyed meeting the characters and watching their personalities unfold before me. I loved Persephone's herb and earthy personality pitted against Jason's Corporate and Finance. This is not your average dime novel with nothing but S-E-X. It's a great story and Dana tells it well, with just enough spice thrown in to make it interesting. Looking forward to reading her other books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it is! September 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an easy and entertaining read. The main characters are well written and grow on you. For us baby boomers, the story will bring back memories of those feminine flower child persona who seemed to almost dabble in witchcraft but were really the front runners of spiritualism and holistic living. Conversely, the male love interest is of the very corporate legal world filled with the sterility of leather, chrome, and glass. Throw them together and see the fun ensue!

More About the Author

Dana Taylor writes books with a mystical touch. Born and raised in California, she attended the University of Redlands and received her B.A. with a theatre major. Her senior year sent her to Oklahoma for a theatre internship, which resulted in a whirlwind courtship and a long marriage. Her two romantic comedies, AIN'T LOVE GRAND? and DEVIL MOON: A MYSTIC ROMANCE (A Movers and Shakers List Title) are set in America's heartland. Opposites attract, loveable characters, and a good dose of laughter. Through the years, she and her husband raised two daughters and numerous animals, with varying results. A dog ate a hamster and the iguana escaped a homemade cage. One rabbit proved it could consume a remote with no ill effects (except to the remote.)The daughters turned out fine.

Her imagination led her to writing romantic adventures, also with a good dose of comedy. ROYAL REBEL began as a Romance Writer's of America contest piece and grew into a full blown, spirited twist on the Robin Hood tale. PROUD HEART (summer 2014) centers on Rosa Dominguez, a Hispanic heroine inspired by Dana's grandmother. After losing her family to violence in Mexico, Rosa courageously joins the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889. The CHARMIN' WARRIOR, hero, Jaguar Jack, has a psychic bent that grew from Ms. Taylor's interest in paranormal and metaphysical matters.

Nowadays when she isn't writing, she is often giving Reiki energy healing treatments. Her interest began with the charismatic spiritual movement and led to the study of healing modalities. She is a Reiki Master in Southern California. Her non-fiction book EVER-FLOWING STREAMS: TAPPING INTO HEALING ENERGY chronicles her spiritual journey into alternative healing. She explores spirituality, energy healing, and wonder at her blog SupernalLiving.com.
And in all her spare time, she serves as President of the Board of the La Mirada Symphony Association.
