Darlene Marshall, author

I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

The Marriage Bargain - Jennifer Probst DNFI've read classic categories by Judith McNaught, Linda Howard, and Jayne Anne Krentz, to name a few, that handled the same "marriage of convenience" theme with more style and much tighter writing than this novel. There were quite a few things that threw me off, and when I got to the dog scene I gave up. The writing and plotting just wasn't what I expect from a good Harlequin, much less a bestseller.
