Book Review: Three Little Words by Susan Mallery (Book twelve of the Fool’s Gold series)

Title: Three Little Words Author: Susan Mallery Series: Fool’s Gold Genre: contemporary romance Published: 2013 Rating: 3 ½ stars I always want to like Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold books more than I actually do.

They start out with two characters—our hero and heroine—who aren’t in/don’t want…

Ever. Um, no. For Cheyenne, though, this feels like more than the standard-issue boyfriend…
