Overview

Bayou-born Lucky Boucher knew Jacey Wheeler was out of his league. She was more than just a high-class blonde with the body of a goddess, she was the brains behind a successful P.I. firm--and Lucky's boss. So he kept his hands off her and his head on their private investigations.

For the first time since they had met, what she wanted from him had absolutely nothing to do with business. With their current case heating up and their professional relationship scorching, Lucky was more than willing to do whatever it took to keep the boss happy....

Meet the Author




The mother of five children, Kylie Brant claims she began writing to save her sanity. Plotting stories became her method of escape from the reality of constant ball games, chauffeuring kids, and refereeing "minor" disagreements between her perfect offspring.

In 1992 she was elated to get a call from Silhouette offering to buy her second novel. Home with laryngitis at the time, she still managed to croak out agreement, and her career was born. A few months later she went on to sell Rancher's Choice, the first manuscript she'd written.

Kylie is married to her high school sweetheart, and they make their home in Iowa. She insists that all her heroes are based on her husband of 23 years because he possesses that most heroic of make qualitiesÿ-- ironing skills. Those abilities come in handy, as she juggles a full time teaching job with writing and a family.

Doing things the easy way has never held much appeal for this multi award-winning author. She graduated with high honors from the University of Northern Iowa. A graduation photo shows her in cap and gown holding her two sons, one aged 16 months and the other three weeks. She went on to obtain a teaching job working with learning-disabled children while completing her master's degree at night and during summers.

"There was a time in my life when I could imagine myself as a life-long student," she recalls. "I actually toyed with the idea of pursuing a doctorate. But instead, my life took a spin and I ended up writing romances. I've never regretted it!" Her family has since been completed by the birth of another son and a set of twins, a boy and a girl.

Kylie's books are regularly featured on bestseller lists such as Waldenbooks and B. Dalton Bookseller. With over a million copies of books in print, her novels have been distributed in 20 countries and released in seven languages.

Family and friends are the main focus of Kylie's life. When she isn't writing or teaching, she enjoys reading and flower gardening. She loves traveling, preferring beach, ocean, and room service. Readers may write her at: P.O. Box 231, Charles City, IA 50616.

Jacinda 'Jacey' Wheeler has given up her boring life as a debutante and is now the brains behind a successful P.I. firm. Jacey has two employees. Joan is her secretary. Lucky helps with the cases. .............................................. Luc 'Lucky' Boucher (Boo-shin) worked as one of Vinny's street thugs until a few years ago. Once Lucky was hired by Jacey he began using his street smarts and connections to help complete their cases. ............................................ They are both attracted to each other. To Jacey, Lucky's bayou charm and dark aura is striking. To Lucky, Jacey is too high class for someone like himself. Yet he admires her wit, dedication to her job, and she is drop dead gorgeous. Therefore, they are only business associates. Yet during their three years together they have become very good friends. ............................................. Now that is all about to change. A local shipping magnate, J. Walter Garvey is dying. The strong willed man refuses to tell his family and is close to none of them. He hires Jacey to investigate all his family members so he may decide which of them, if any, he will leave the running of his empire to. To make things complicated, word has somehow leaked out about Garvey hiring Jacey and why. None of the family members look great, but one of them is connected to Vinny. The simple research case has just become deadly. ............................................. ***** There are two sub-plots running underneath the main one to keep things lively in this story. Jacey has a problem with an ex-boyfriend and Lucky has a dark secret he would rather Jacey never found out about. It all comes together to make a spectacular tale that will highly entertain readers and deserves the full five stars! *****
