The Marriage Dance - Jillian Dagg is a great writer. I’ve read her work before. But I almost couldn’t like Anni because she was such a free-spirit. Steve’s character balanced her well-the saving grace of the story. I liked the HEAT generated in the words, the delicate sensory appreciation Anni and Steve have for each other. Jillian has a way with words that describe beautifully without becoming cumbersome. All in all, a pretty good read! - Reviewed by Joyce Levane - Romance Junkies
Both unlikely candidates for marriage Anni and Steve are sexually attracted to each other at their first meeting. She is a fiery free-spirited ballet dancer, not ready for a long term relationship that might detract from her dancing . He is a hardworking divorce lawyer who has no time for marriage. But they cannot stay away from each other. So the scene is set for the advance and retreat of THE MARRIAGE DANCE. Will they, won’t they make a commitment to each other? The question kept me in suspense, turning the pages of this excellent portrayal of a passionate contemporary love affair and marriage described by author Jillian Dagg in her customary clear and objective style. - Flora Kidd, novelist
Reviewed by Tracy Atencio
THE MARRIAGE DANCE is a good example of how romance alone can begin a relationship, and how love can keep it. I loved the fact that Ms. Dagg kept the physical aspect out until after her main characters were married, yet the sexual tension between Anni and Steve could be clearly felt each time they were together. They absolutely sizzled! And it was interesting to find a female character that was more self-absorbed than her male counterpart.THE MARRIAGE DANCE is perfect for those of you who are looking for a sweet, heartfelt, genuine romance in the truest sense of the word. Jillian Dagg has done a remarkable job bringing romance back into the twenty-first century!

From the Fletcher Paper Company’s boardroom in Vancouver to a cabin in the wilderness forest of British Columbia, Jillian Dagg takes the reader on the roller coaster ride of a love affair between a wealthy business woman and a rugged environmental activist. Conflict, desire, and resistance culminate in the passion of true love. Romance with a darker side - Flora Kidd, novelist.
A beautiful story, Lucky 13 is bound to entrance the reader with quick read full of love and laughter. Luke and Carolyn fit the bill showing that love doesn’t have to come all at once but can show up bit by bit throughout until the only solution is marriage and a love that lives forever. Although the scenes were predictable, this reviewer loved the idea of finding love on the highway with twelve men, two women, and the boss. - Brenda Ramsbacher
