Garden Of Scandal Hardcover – 1 Sep 1997
About the Author
A writer of international bestseller status as well, her books have been published in 17 languages for worldwide sales approaching 22 million. She was honored with the position as writer-in-residence for the University of Northeastern Louisiana, and is a charter, and honorary, member of Romance Writers of America.
She has received numerous awards for her work, but among those she values most are the Golden Treasure Award for Lifetime Achievement from Romance Writers of America, induction into the Affaire de Coeur Romance Hall of Fame, and the Frank Waters Award for Excellence in Fiction.
Since 1998, Jennifer and her husband have lived in a lakeside Caribbean-styled retreat in North Louisiana. They often entertain friends and family, especially their four grown children and 13 grandchildren. Always a gardener at heart, she spends much of her free time encouraging her newly planted lawn to bloom with her favorite daylilies and azaleas, and with her transplanted antique roses.
Her love of history and antiques has given rise to her newest hobby, quilting. But evenings find her and her husband lounging on one of the expansive verandas, enjoying cafe au lait and listening to the gentle lap of waves.
Here, as Jennifer says in her own words, "I write my fantasies of love and adventure in the romantic South. And sometimes, when I sit on the porch with the sunlight falling across the lawn and the smells of magnolia, sweet olive, honeysuckle, and roses wafting on the warm air, I live them."

If you're a fan of Blake, you should read the older stuff- i.e. historical romances from the 80's. I am sad to say that her material is getting worse and worse. I don't know if she's not spending the time or effort required to produce the quality that she once did. I have read 99% of the her novels and unfortunately the level of writing quality and storyline complexity is diminishing rapidly.
DO NOT READ THIS BOOK.
If you're interested in something of Blake's, see: Prisoner of Desire or Tigress. I guarantee with those two that you will NOT be disappointed!
Good luck reading:)
