Lynn Raye Harris, military spouse and romance author, left Hawaii just as I arrived. I finally met her at RWA/2010 in Orlando. She is adorable! From her bio (at this link),
Lynn Raye Harris read her first Harlequin Mills & Boon romance when her grandmother carted home a box from a yard sale. She didn’t know she wanted to be a writer then, but she definitely knew she wanted to marry a sheikh or a prince and live the glamorous life she read about in the pages. Instead, she married a military man and moved around the world. She’s been inside the Kremlin, hiked up a Korean mountain, floated on a gondola in Venice and stood inside volcanoes at opposite ends of the world.
These days Lynn lives in Alabama with her handsome husband and two crazy cats. When she’s not writing, she loves to read, shop for antiques, cook gourmet meals and try new wines. She is also an avowed shoeaholic and thinks there’s nothing better than a new pair of high heels.

I've seen her in those high heels at RT (but not inside volcanoes). I follow Lynn on Twitter @lynnrayeharris (at this link) - I especially enjoy her reports of cat hijinks! When she offer her new book, THE GIRL NOBODY WANTED, for review, I jumped at the chance.
Anna Constantinides, publicly humiliated when her long-time fiancé announced his engagement to someone else, might have thought things couldn’t get any worse…. Until her private jet crash-landed on an uninhabited island, leaving her stranded with billionaire hotel magnate Leo Jackson.
Renowned playboy Leo’s reputation is legendary, and if the smoldering looks they were fighting to contain when rescued are anything to go by, there can only be one question on everybody’s lips: just how long did it take wickedly sexy Leo to undress buttoned-up heiress Anna?

This was my first Harlequin Presents .... pure escapism ala Club Med! I posted my four star review on Amazon (at this link) and Goodreads (at this link). In honor of secluded beaches, I am giving away a Hawaiian 2013 calendar to one randomly selected commenter. To enter the giveaway,
1. Have you flown in a private jet? I have flown with military pilots (off duty) in a two seater Cessna and a six seater Cessna. No crash landing!
2. This giveaway is open to all readers.
3. Comments are open through Saturday, October 20, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, October 21.
