DEBUT AUTHOR BETH ALBRIGHT TAKES READERS ALONG FOR
SOME SEXY SOUTHERN FUN WITH A HINT OF MAGNOLIA
THE SASSY BELLES
There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa—football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: call her best friend, Blake O’Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.
With the town gossip swirling around them, Vivi and Blake are determined to find out what happened to Lewis and clear Vivi’s reputation. Because after all, men may come and go, but the Sassy Belles are forever.
Not since Steel Magnolias have we fallen in love with such sexy, strong and hilarious Southern women. So grab your best girlfriends and join these Belles on the first of many joyrides through the Deep South.
THE SASSY BELLES is available wherever books are sold and at www.Harlequin.com.

Beth Albright has always been a storyteller. After spending nearly 15 years in talk radio as a talk-show host, playing the part of a principal character on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, owning her own acting school and children’s theater and raising a son who was a nationally ranked figure skater, Beth has decided to return to her roots—storytelling.
When she was in the sixth grade, her teacher gave her the floor every Friday to tell her stories. See, Beth was a talker, a future talk-show host in the making and she was telling stories so much that her teacher couldn’t teach. The teacher told 12-year-old Beth if she would begin writing her stories down, she would be allowed time to share those stories with the class. And she’s been writing, and talking ever since. Beth has interviewed Bob Hope, Oprah Winfrey, Betty White, Wolfgang Puck and George Burns live from the Chinese Theatre, as well as numerous other celebrities and authors. Then Beth became a principal character on Days of Our Lives. But through all of the excitement of talk shows and soap operas, Beth loved telling stories to her audience the most. With a degree in journalism from her beloved University of Alabama, she remains true to her roots and has never forgotten where she comes from. Born and raised in Tuscaloosa (“My grandfather was the play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide in the 50s!” Beth will proudly tell you), she is a down-home girl, although she currently lives in San Francisco with her TV producer husband and her brilliant son. But her heart is always in Alabama. She has just completed a new series, The Sassy Belles.
