Bettye Griffin was told by her English professor that she had a gift for writing and might want to consider pursuing writing as a professional career. She promptly dropped out of college and started crafting stories...and just 22 short years later sold her first book. Bettye writes both contemporary romance and women's fiction. A native of Yonkers, New York, Bettye has also lived in Florida and Illinois, and now crafts her compelling, drama-filled tales from her home in the great dairy state of Wisconsin. Bettye thoroughly enjoys Wisconsin's contributions to the American diet and often nibbles on cheese while writing, and she celebrates a good day of writing by having a glass of the beer that made Milwaukee famous.
Since 1998, Bettye has written 6 novels of women's fiction, including Once Upon A Project (2008) and A New Kind of Bliss (2009); and 11 contemporary romances, including A Love For All Seasons (2007) and A Love of Her Own (1999). In 2009, seeing the creative and financial freedom of publishing independent projects, Bettye started her own imprint, Bunderful Books, and to date has published two contemporary romances through this outlet, Save The Best For Last (2009) and The Heat of Heat (2010).

Okay I agree with the other review, giving her four first names and three last names was overkill. I also agree she was the most stubborn woman and frankly Dexter could have done better. However with his 14 years of college education due to an inability to decide what to do, doctor lawyer whatever, he is also a piece of work. So they do deserve each other!

Genevieve, Gen, Jenny, whatever her name is, is ANNOYING to the nth degree! She has STRONG feelings for Dexter but yet she chooses to ignore them. This portion drags on for far too long in the book, I almost wanted to strangle the heroine. Dexter is amazing, he's a man who knows what he wants and doesn't make excuses about it...thats just plain sexy! The storyline with Barry starts out strong but it seems that the author didnt know where to take it...so it fizzled. I love Bettye's work but I certainly didn't love this one. I've just started a Love of Her Own, I hope this one fairs better.
