REVIEW COMMENTS    

“...the Nora Roberts of medicals.”- Author Susan Carlisle

-- ** --    

Two Dianne Drakes under the one cover was an enjoyable treat!
-From Mills & Boon website

-- ** --     

What a sweet romance...I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more of Ms. Drakes’ work.
- From Coffee Time Romance

-- ** --     

I recently discovered her, and enjoy her tremendously.
- Found on Smart Bitches Trashy Books

-- ** --     

For a medical romance this story has more than enough action and drama to hold anyone’s interest, and the romance is only a small portion of its appeal.
- From Coffee Time Romance

-- ** --

Facing the Mirror (from I Never Thought I’d see you Again): In Facing the Mirror, by Dianne Despain (Drake), Maggie Holmes learns she has cancer while she is an Emergency Room. The author's writing is direct and poignant. When reading this well written story the reader is one with Maggie Holmes.

-- ** --

Reviewed on the Mills & Boon website:

Firefighter With A Frozen Heart - An excellent story written with emotional depth and understanding.

Engrossing and probably Mrs Drake's best yet.
- Ten out of ten

-- ** --

P.S. You’re a Daddy: This is a story of the love for a sister and family. Funny and loving, laughed, cried and waited for the happy ever after. Good read!

-- ** --

 A Child to Heal Their Hearts: “To be honest a book set in a holiday camp for recovering sick children didn't sound an appealing subject and I'm also not particularly keen when children form a large part of the plot. However Mrs Drake has written so compellingly about this that I was able to forget my prejudices. Reid is an engaging and dedicated hero while enigmatic at first, Keera's emotions were portrayed realistically and sympathetically. There were unexpected turns in the plot and I ended up thoroughly enjoying this book. Nine out of ten"
