Romance author Kristie Leigh Maguire prides herself on doing it her way. This includes writing her own books when she found English reading material too hard to find while living overseas.

Co-writer Mark Haeuser grew up in South Western Wisconsin along the Mississippi River. His other books are in the fantasy, western, and action/adventure genres. For more see Mark Haeuser's web site.


There are strange goings-on inside the trailers at President Park in Grapevine, KY. This satirical look at small town life is really two intertwined stories. The main story is the gossip, backbiting, and general misbehaving going on in this lowbrow, redneck Peyton Place. The other is the story of Grapevine's soon-to-be bestselling author as she writes the story of the world's greatest lover. The last spices the story up while the entire book tickles your funny bone.


This book is satire. It's supposed to be slightly over the top like a caricature. It isn't the book for those who think anything beyond a kiss is too much sex or that sex is too serious to laugh at. It's not for someone from a small town who feels they're inferior because of it. But for those with the ability to recognize their own foibles and still laugh. For those who can see the humor in the human condition with all its warts exposed. This is the book for you.


If you’re easily offended by sex in a book this is not for you. It doesn’t reach the level of erotica – it’s more comparable to some of the more explicit bestselling authors.
