Thank you, Cobbsouth! That's a terrific suggestion, and one I hadn't thought of. That would be the perfect bridge for where I am right now in my Dutch. I will definitely look for your books!

Glad to be of help! The English versions are out of print, but they're readily (and cheaply) available online. Here are the titles, along with their Dutch counterparts:

Don't Bet on Love/Hij is al leuk

Blame It on Love/Ik ben liever dan hij

Thanks Cobbsouth! I especially appreciate your including the Dutch titles. That's another interesting problem I have -- trying to figure out what title matches up with what book. It is a process that is sometimes amusing, sometimes baffling.

I would have never guessed that the Dutch would translate your titles the way they did.

Thanks again!

It can be...interesting, to say the least! One of my books was translated into French, and I can actually read bits and pieces of it--just enough to say, "I NEVER wrote that!"

And as for the cover designs--don't get me started! I think the Dutch covers are cute, but the Polish ones are hideous! I guess they've got marketing people there who know what will sell, but I'll have to admit, I can't see the appeal.
