I got my R from Flirt last night. *sigh* As a side note, I did think it was interesting the email came from Sue Grimshaw. Maybe, she's heading up both Loveswept and Flirt?

Belated thanks, Chump. This book got me 4.5 agent offers but that was after four months of sending out 440 submissions. My agent and I still think it shines, but who knows.
