No Quarter Asked


Author: Janet Dailey
Series: Singles
Publisher: Janet Dailey




Janet Dailey wrote her first novel, No Quarter Asked in 1974 after her husband, Bill, urged her to back up her claim that she could write a better romance novel than the ones she had read. The book was accepted by Harlequin, which made her the category romance giant‘s first American author. She eventually wrote a total of 57 novels for Harlequin, including one set in every state of the Union. These later became known as “The Janet Dailey Americana Series.” The Daileys were instrumental in forming the Silhouette romance fiction line, for which Janet wrote 12 more titles before entering the mass market field in 1979 with Touch the Wind, which marked her debut on the New York Times best seller list. No Quarter Asked is the first of the Cord & Stacy Series which includes No Quarter Asked (1974), Fiesta San Antonio (1977) and For Bitter or Worse (1978).
