When three women go to a "lock and key" party to meet sexy singles, they never expect to find their perfect matches...in love and in bed!

Successful attorney Michaela "Mikki" Correlli has worked hard to achieve the perfect life. There isn't much else she could possibly want. When she attends a "lock and key" party, she hopes to have some hot fun, no strings attached. She certainly didn't plan to hook up with her ex-husband.

Meet the Author




For Jamie Denton there's nothing quite as heartwarming as the happy ending for a hero and heroine who overcome the odds. In fact, if you ask her, she'll tell you that anything in life that's easy just isn't much fun. Always one to look for challenges in life, Jamie embraced her first real challenge at the age of 16 when she married her high school sweetheart.

A whole lot of years later, she can still remember the first time she saw her own personal hero and knew, even at that tender age, that he was the one. With a history like that, what else could she write except romance novels? Several writing awards later, it's obvious her personal life wasn't the only place she made the right choice.

Although writing takes much of her time, in her spare moments away from the computer she usually has a book (what else but a romance?) or a cross-stitch project within reach. She enjoys cooking, gardening, and has a love hate relationship when it comes to remodeling her turn of the century home, which Jamie and her husband refer to as the Little Money Pit on the Prairie. Now that her nest is officially empty, she showers her affection on her three, four-legged "babies": a mammoth Maine Coon, Max (short for Maximum Load), her adorable little Red Stag Miniature Pinscher, Strat who loves to cuddle in her lap while she writes, and the dumbest smart dog she's ever owned, the family's yellow Labrador Retriever, Dauber, whom she claims is appropriately named.

When asked why she writes romances, Jamie credits her sister-in-law. During a difficult pregnancy when all activities were strictly forbidden, Jamie received two grocery sacks (before the days of plastic!) filled with novels. Every one was a romance, so during those long days of forced inactivity, Jamie read, and read, and read some more.

She claims that during those hours while she was swept away by the compelling romances of dashing heroes and feisty heroines, she was able to set aside her worries. She never forgot that feeling, and when she penned her first romance 12 years later in 1994, she did so with the fondest hope that someone else may be able to set aside their worries for a short while, too.

Jamie, a Southern California native, lives in North Dakota with her husband. This incredibly very young grandmother of three escaped life in the fast lane and doesn't regret trading sun and sand for clear blue skies and wide open spaces . . . well, except during the long winter months with all that snow cluttering up her gardens.

    strong contemporary

    In San Francisco child advocate attorney Michaela Corelli joins her two friends Lauren Massey and Rosy Constable on a lock and key party (for the pals¿ tales see ON THE LOOSE BY Shannon Hollis and SLOW RIDE by Carrie Alexander). To Mikki¿s shock her former husband Nolan Baker is at Painter¿s Cove Resort too. Stunning her even further, Nolan informs Mikki they are still married as the lawyer she selected to handle her divorce was disbarred before the filing.--- Though he knows he has a death wish, Nolan still loves Mikki and plans to get back into her life. However, though she enjoys the sex and seems to love him too, Mikki refuses to engage in anything after the resort. She admits to herself she owes Nolan the truth but is too cowardly to reveal her shame preferring to dim it with alcohol.--- The third tale in the Lock and Key trilogy is a terrific ending that stars an intriguing individual who was a victim as a child albeit her profession, but the adult still hides in shadows out of fear. Mikki is not very likable yet the audience will feel deeply for her and pray that somehow Nolan can reach her. Jamie Denton provides a powerful tale that is more than just an inferno under the covers, but is an insightful realistic look at how crippling sexual abuse received as a child terrorizes the adult.--- Harriet Klausner
