The saying "When it rains, it pours" certainly applies to the love life of Stephanie Plum, the charming protagonist in Janet Evanovich's wildly popular mystery saga featuring the lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter (Twelve Sharp, Eleven On Top, et al.). In Plum Lovin' -- a "between-the-numbers" mini-escapade -- Plum's love triangle (which includes Trenton cop Joseph Morelli and bounty hunter Ricardo "Ranger" Manoso) suddenly becomes a quadrilateral when Diesel, a hunky heartthrob who is as mentally unstable as he is mysterious, suddenly shows up in Plum's life.
A self-proclaimed Unmentionable (someone with abilities that "go beyond what would be considered normal human limitations"), Diesel is somewhere between a certifiable wack job and a superhero with a bad attitude, but Stephanie couldn't care less about his grasp (or lack thereof) on reality: He has killer dimples and a smile that makes women weak in the knees. And he has Annie Hart, a bail-jumping "relationship expert" who is on Stephanie's most wanted list, in his possession. For Plum to get hold of Hart, however, she must first help out five of Annie's lovelorn clients. So, with Valentine's Day quickly approaching, Plum is forced to play Cupid for a divorced mother of four, a dorky vet, a 35-year-old virgin, a shy butcher, and her sister's boyfriend!
