SIDELIGHTS:

The fiction of prolific romance novelist Susan Mallery is known for its riotous romps. "No one packs more emotional punch and humor into a story than Mallery," attested Jill M. Smith in a Romantic Times Online review of Sizzling. "The ability to move a reader from laughter to tears is a special talent and this author has it in spades." Pamela Cohen, also writing for the Romantic Times, praised the "multifaceted characters, romantic tension and strong emotions" found in A Little Bit Pregnant. Even when her stories have a "slight plot," as a Publishers Weekly contributor remarked in a review of Sweet Success, Mallery manages to bolster it with "witty dialogue, plenty of romantic tension and delicious characters."

The recipient of a National Readers' Choice Award, Mallery has penned both contemporary tales and historical novels. Her works have appeared on the USA Today and Waldenbooks best seller lists. In addition to her sense of humor, critics have repeatedly noted the author's solid skills in characterization. For example, Smith, reviewing Irresistible, commented that the author "does her usual excellent job of taking characters with issues and making them riveting," while Booklist contributor Shelley Mosley commented that the "Buchanan" series "has a wonderful cast of characters."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
