I could have sworn there was a post about this but it must have been a reply to another post or maybe in the weekend reading stuff because I can't find it.

I was worried when I read some of the reviews on Amazon. I loved Lethal, her last book but I delayed reading this based on lousey reviews. I should have delayed. I loved it. Dent Carter, the hero, is a typical Sandra Brown "bad boy" and she writes them well. Bellamy was interesting for me as well. I guessed "who done it" early but it wasn't until the end that it was confirmed and I had to keep thinking and rethinking throughout the book. I enjoy being right! This is more romantic suspense than some of her more recent novels. I enjoyed the "sizzle" between the two main characters. Not a ton of sex but lots of "teasing" to the main event which I personally enjoy as much as a good sex scene.

I met her last month. I asked her to sign Rainwater for me and I bought lethal. She started writing because she was fired from her tv job.

I read Letha when it came out -- it's one of her best!

LOVED both Lethal and Low Pressure...I was shocked by the bad reviews which I read afterwards. She's one of my favorite authors, the only recent one I didn't like Tough Customer and that was a wall banger for me unfortunately.

I'm just about to re-read The Crush :-)

I, too, enjoyed Low Pressure and posted a few words on the Weekend Reading thread some time ago.

I found one thing irritating and I believe someone else (Janie?) posted about this also. Numerous times Denton referred to Bellamy as "A.k.a." If I'm not mistaken at least one time was during a tender moment. Now to me "aka" means "also known as". Obviously, this makes no sense in the context of the book. Sooo - what does it mean? Irritated me - I'd like to know what it means. Anyone?

I thought it stood for "also know as" -- T. J. David, her pen name.

She is one of my favorites, too, and I loved Lethal and Low Pressure. In fact, I have loved all her RS books. Envy is probably my favorite SB book.

I am re-reading White Hot.

Thanks for the explaination and website!

I would never have considered it related to the pseudonym Bellamy used - although in retrospect what else? Still find it irritating.
