More About the Author

Brenda Novak Bio

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak's career as a bestselling author--she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

"When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book," Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times, USA Today and Borders/Waldenbooks bestseller lists and won many awards, including three Rita nominations, the Book Buyer's Best, the Book Seller's Best and the National Reader's Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children--three girls and two boys. When she's not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually working on her annual fund-raiser for diabetes research--an online auction held on her Web site (www.brendanovak.com) every May. Brenda has raised over $1.6 million to date.

Once you start reading Brenda Novak's books you just can't put them down and when you are finished you can't wait for the next one.

The realization of the depth of the main characters feelings for each other was interesting.

In her early thirties, Rebecca Wells still sneaks an occasional cigarette and struggles to control her temper. Her nemesis Josh Hill, who lived across the street when they were growing up, fills her father's dreams of an ideal child, resulting in twenty-four years of discord. The wounds still have not healed, especially when her father announces that she is not invited to her parents anniversary party unless she promises to behave, meaning she has to strike a truce with Josh.
No one knows about the evening a year ago that proves that the chemistry between them has escalated, but neither Rebecca nor Josh can quite forget. With her best friend married, Rebecca decides it is time to marry and move away from Dundee, where her reputation has proven to be quite limiting. Unfortunately, her fiancé is more concerned with getting his great aunt to the wedding than sticking with a wedding date, so she dumps him and looks a bit closer to home. The question remains if Josh is up to her wild eccentricities!
I confess a weakness for heroines who do not fit the classic model of decorum. I identify with women like Rebecca who struggle with to grow beyond her reputation as a troublemaker and to quit smoking. It's heroines like Rebecca that make Superromances sparkle, because they are flawed, sassy and real. And they get guys like Josh, a fantasy come true. And with author Brenda Novak's pen, they also get a very bumpy ride on the way to romance, filled with the emotional conundrums that makes her stories outrageous, fun and believable. A HUSBAND OF HER OWN comes highly recommended.

I'm on a sort-of marathon of reading Brenda's Dundee, Idaho series. This was #2, and I can hardly wait to read the rest.

Rebecca is 32 yrs old. Since she has always had the reputation around town of being a constant trouble maker/hell raiser, even she believes it & doesn't think she's able to change herself.

Sometimes all it takes is one special person (preferably from the opposite sex) to make one see her self-worth. But when this one special person is someone you've feuded with your whole life, it doesn't happen overnight. Even though the reader can see they belong together, it takes them awhile to catch on! :)

This was wonderfully written.Brenda out did herself once again.
The story takes place in Dundee Idaho and Rebecca Wells wants to overcome her reputation and wants to get past her twenty-four year rivalry with the Perfect golden boy and successful horse rancher Josh Hill.
When Rebecca's father tells her that she has to call a truce with Josh or she will not be invited to attend their anniversary party Rebecca is upset and hurt that her father would even tell her that. When Josh shows up Rebecca tells him he doesn't have to stay to get his hair cut that they could call a truce now and just get it over with.Josh stays and lets Rebecca cut his hair and sparks start to fly.
Rebecca is also engaged to a man named Buddy who keeps putting of their wedding.When Josh figures out that he is in love with Rebecca he gets a hold of Buddy and starts to tell him of all the things Rebecca did growing up and Buddy tells Rebecca that they should not get married right now if at all.Rebecca is confused and wonders who could have told Buddy all that stuff about her.When she finds out it was Josh she is upset but they end up in each others arms and the rest is history.
This was a great book and one I couldn't put down.Brenda is a brilliant & awsome writer.Keep up the great work can't wait for your next book.

Great follow-up to "A Baby of Her Own". Once you start reading Brenda Novak's books you just can't put them down and when you are finished you can't wait for the next one.
Keep it up Brenda, waiting for your next book.

I am a Brenda Novak fan and this is one of her best. Often the endings of books are not the way I'd like to see them. This one ended just perfectly and left me feeling warm and fuzzy.
