About the Author
Radclyffe is the pen name of a self-avowed romantic who proudly traces her creative roots to the era when lesbian pulp-fiction was born. In keeping with those classic works, her idea of a good read is two strong, sexy, independent women who meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after. If there's a little action, angst or anguish along the way-all the better! She attributes her awakening to the wonderful world of web-fiction to X-File ScullySlash. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I've never understood why Radclyffe's works haven't been picked up by an established press -- she is easily the equal, if not the superior, of many of the published authors successful in the lesbian romance genre (which is too weak in quality to afford such an oversight). I can only hope that her works, now available in print form, will continue to grow in popularity as readers discover what they've been missing. For those of us who stumbled upon Radclyffe online, the public recognition can't come too soon. I've ordered print copies of several of my favorite titles so I can indulge in the pleasure of re-reading them sitting in an armchair, rather than hunched over my laptop.
If you like the books of writers such as Karin Kallmaker and Peggy J. Herring, then chances are very good you'll thoroughly enjoy Radclyffe as well.
Blair Powell, the only child of the nation's leader, resents the intrusion into every corner of her private life of those charged to protect her and will do anything to preserve her independence. With the added pressure of protecting her father's political image in a world where image could determine the outcome of the next election, Blair struggles to keep her true passions from the world. Cameron Roberts, the agent reluctantly assigned to guard her, is tortured by secrets of her own. When a threat to the First Daughter's life brings emotions to a boil, they are forced to confront their mutual desire.
As always, Radclyffe's prose is lean and sharp, lending itself well to the staccato pace of an action thriller shot through with the soaring romance which is the hallmark of her fiction. Timely, intriguing, and ultimately satisfying to both the intellect and the senses, "Above All, Honor" is a fitting entree into the world of politics, forbidden passions, and hidden dangers inhabited by an unforgettable cast of characters.
Since the other reviews of this book are accurate I didn't see a point to adding my 5 stars, but I was surprised that anyone would suggest that if I happen to like another writer then I haven't read Radclyffe. Well, I have read Rad, plus lots of other writers. I see no reason to pick between them, or refuse all others just because I might have a favorite. That's just plain silly. Rad isn't my favorite, sorry my heart belongs to another, but she's on the list of writers I will *always* buy, and that's a pretty short list.
Given the struggles of our bookstores and publishers and writers today I think everybody should buy as many books by as many writers as they can afford. Why be exclusive? I think it's great to have a number of talented writers in the romance genre, each giving different flavors. Radclyffe writes an action-thriller-romance-sexy tale with a blend that is all her own (and this series is the best example of that) and sets her apart from the banal. Other writers do what they do in their own way equally well. If you limit yourself to just one writer you're missing out on some great books and wonderful entertainment.
