Private Investigationsby Tori Carrington
Former secretary Ripley Logan will do whatever it takes to make it in her new career as a P.I. Only, she hadn't counted on being forced out of her room (the bathtub, actually) by bad guys--or crawling between the sheets with a stranger to avoid them.

Former secretary Ripley Logan will do whatever it takes to make it in her new career as a P.I. Only, she hadn't counted on being forced out of her room (the bathtub, actually) by bad guys--or crawling between the sheets with a stranger to avoid them. Still, she has a job to do and she intends to do it--just as soon as sexy Joe Pruitt decides to let her out of his bed....
Businessman Joe Pruitt knew traveling had its perks, but he'd never experienced one like this! Sexy, spirited Ripley has his head spinning--and his libido in overdrive. And although she insists she doesn't need his help, Joe can't just let her go. Especially since Ripley's enthusiasm for unraveling the case keeps leading her back into Joe's bed....

Desperate, naked, and wet from her bubble bath soak private investigator Ripley Logan races through the motel balcony window of shoe businessman Joe Pruitt¿s room. Before the bewildered Joe knows what happens he finds the gorgeous sleuth lying nude in his bed. Joe believes someone upstairs loves him as he feels he just got lucky until Ripley explains that three armed thugs are after her. Unbelievable at least to Joe's associates and even to himself, he no longer worries about working twenty-four seven days a week as he has Ripley on his brain. His first priority is her safety as opposed to his shoe business operation. As they work on solving her missing person¿s case, Joe and Ripley fall in love. PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS combines slapstick humor with boudoir heat, which on first impressions should prove a disastrous story line. However, terrifically talented Tori Carrington makes the combo work smoothly and seamlessly. Readers obtain a wonderful wacky tale with two delightful lead protagonists. Ripley is a charmer who has ripped asunder Joe¿s stable world. He is elated with the chance to be her knight in shining armor though he wishes she would change her occupation so they are in less dangerous situations. Fans of jocularly torrid romances will relish Ms. Carrington¿s fabulous contemporary. Harriet Klausner
