Overview

Misty Fortune is a famous erotica author—a convincing one, too, despite her considerably more tepid real-life sexual experience. Worried that her extended dry spell is affecting her writing, Misty heads to a unique Las Vegas resort, one that promises to fulfill every sexual fantasy a guest could want. But an unexpected encounter with a gorgeous fire marshal has her thinking that a session with him would be hotter than anything the resort has to offer....

Tucker Greywolf knew it was his lucky day when the Las Vegas police asked him to assist on a case involving an unusual hedonistic resort. But he never imagined he'd meet this lusty English writer—so teasingly prim and proper, yet so sexually adventurous—and offer his services! He figures four days helping Misty tap in to her erotic side during his stay in town would be the break he needs, but four days may not be nearly enough!

    who-done-it romance is fun

    Canyon Springs, New Mexico Fire Marshal Tucker Greywolf is in Vegas attending forensic seminars. Popular author Misty Fortune is in Vegas too seeking to overcome her writer¿s block that she thinks is caused by a lack of orgasms, which is depressing for an author known for her heated under the covers scenes. However, murder occurs at Blackstone Resort, temporarily placing the sexual fantasy resort off limits as a crime scene. Through a mutual acquaintance, Detective Miguel of LVPD takes Tucker under his wings, enabling the visiting student to work on the homicide investigation. At Blackstone, Tucker meets Misty and both of them are attracted to one another. Soon they heat the sheets hotter than a building inferno, but he is small town southwest America and she is big city (in England). Though doubtful that the police allow an ¿inexperienced¿ outsider, even with Tucker's investigative background, to join in on the case, the who-done-it romance is fun to read. The novel facilely consolidates a strong romance with torrid settings with a police procedural. Tucker and Misty prove that opposites do attract and though AGAINST THE ODDS can forge a relationship if the loving bond is strong enough to glue their souls. Fans of hot romantic suspense will take delight with this charmer due to the fascinating lead protagonists. Harriet Klausner
