After she had completed her high school education in the year 1962, Janet Dailey went on to serve as a construction company secretary. Dailey eventually got married to one Bill Dailey, the owner of the construction firm in the year 1964. In the year 1974, the two sold the construction firm and used the money from the sale to purchase a Silver Steamer Trailer that the used to travel around the United States. It was during this period that Janet Dailey, informed her husband, that she could pen down, a much better romance novel. Her husband, in turn, challenged her to write one. No Quarter Asked was the resultant manuscript and was accepted by Harlequin publishers. Dailey then went ahead to pen more than 50 romance novels for Harlequin publishers and approximately 100 novels in her lifetime. While she was cruising around the world in a trailer home, Dailey penned down the fiftieth novel, which is a part of the Janet Dailey American series, where each of the stories was formulated to represent each of the American states.

This achievement, in turn, earned her a slot in the Guinness Book of records. Janet Dailey’s American series, in turn, placed heroes, courtships, and heroines in the American West. These novels, in turn, introduced the female characters as the main characters normally marginalized in the traditional American Western setting, challenging the traditional societal expectations and confronting the various elements as well. Despite the fact that all the books in this series were set in a contemporary setting, there were so many parallels with traditional western fiction regarding themes and place.
