The word “book” used to mean one thing: a bunch of printed pages bound together with a sturdy cover. Now, it can be something you listen to or – more frequently – a digital file accessed on an electronic device. Regardless of how it’s delivered, the book is the thing at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

Do you like steamy romances but want the wholesomeness of a family saga? Bella Andre is the author for you. Her Sullivan Series follows the lives of the eight Sullivan siblings as they one by one find true love. All set within a warm family dynamic, with enough sibling rivalry and bickering to make it realistic, each book can be read as a standalone and they need not be read in sequence. The sex scenes are a bit steamy and romantic, but each story is filled with true emotion and has a strong and solid basis of love.
No other author writes about Las Vegas glitz and glamour, or chronicles the lives of the rich and famous, as well as Jackie Collins. Her latest, Confessions of a Wild Child, is the prequel to the long running Lucky Santangelo series and gives us a glimpse into the teenage years of Lucky Santangelo. They may have been wild and wicked, but those teenage years are what helped make Lucky into the powerful 50-something woman she is portrayed as in the last book in the series, Goddess of Vengeance (2011).
