Dear Reader: In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I
wrote twelve short romance novels. Red-hot screwball
comedies, each and every one of them. Nine of these stories
were originally published by the Loveswept line between the
years 1988 and 1992. All went out-of-print immediately and
then could be found only at used bookstores and yard sales.
I'm excited to tell you that those nine stories are now
being re-released by HarperCollins. Love Overboard is second
in the lineup, and it's presented here in almost original
form. I've done only minor editing to correct some
embarrassing bloopers missed the first time around. And I
changed the title because I thought the original title (Ivan
Takes a Wife) was boring! Love Overboard is a romantic tale
about a handsome ship's captain; a wary wench from Jersey
City; a hundred-year-old, two-masted schooner; and an entire
town of shoemakers. There's some getting naked, some
blueberry pie, more getting naked, and at the end ... Okay,
I won't tell you about the end, but it's really good and
it'll make you feel happy. I took my family on the road trip
from heck to research this book. When we finally got to
Maine it was all worthwhile because we fell in love with the
boats and the people who sailed them. Enjoy!
