He Was Her First...

Charlotte Tasker has always been a good girl, so she married the most decent, reliable man she could find even though their love life was a bit on the predictable side. Thirteen years later, she's a widowed mom who runs her company, prepares three vegetarian meals a day for her children, and volunteers for just about every good deed in town. But no one knows that Charlotte has a secret weakness for squirt cheese, erotic poetry-and the mystery man she lost her virginity to in a reckless roadside tryst, moments before she got engaged. They never exchanged names, and even now, Charlotte can't stop fantasizing about that spectacular stranger...

She Was His Best...

DEA agent Joe Bellacera isn't crazy about having to hide out in Minton, Ohio before testifying at the trial of a notorious drug lord. But he's handling it just fine...until he lays eyes on a fiery redhead and a hot little body he'd recognize anywhere. Joe's never had another woman like Charlotte since that day thirteen years ago. Now she's his neighbor-and strictly off-limits...

Will Lightning Strike Twice?

Amid the balmy, honeysuckle-scented breezes of a Midwestern summer, sense and sensibility are about to be subverted by an ice cream-loving dog, conspiring kids, and nosy neighbors. And when the Widow Tasker's fantasies meet the rock-hard reality of Agent Bellacera, let the fireworks begin...

Publishers Weekly
In Donovan's latest romance (after Take a Chance on Me), orgasms are much on the mind of widow Charlotte Tasker, who spent a mind-blowing few hours with a hot stranger 13 years earlier, but who hasn't been as lucky since, as her late husband's laid-back sexuality didn't match her wilder urges. Still, raising two kids alone doesn't leave room for anything other than fantasies-until Charlotte realizes that her handsome new neighbor is the man from her past. For DEA agent Joe Bellacera, the timing of their unexpected reunion couldn't be worse. With a drug warlord's $1 million bounty on his head forcing him into hiding, he needs to keep a low profile, not get involved with the woman who nearly scalded his skin off with her lovemaking and then took his heart with her when she drove away. But when Joe decides fate shouldn't be ignored so easily, Charlotte doesn't stand a chance. Goofy comedy, white-hot sex and ticking-bomb pacing will keep readers glued to the pages. Joe suffers from hunky alpha-male syndrome, which makes him seem less complex than Charlotte and less memorable, but all in all, this is a surefire crowd-pleaser-for the crowd who appreciates orgasms, that is. Agent, Pamela Hopkins. (June) Forecast: Glowing cover praise from Susan Andersen and Christina Dodd should jumpstart sales of this sexy contemporary. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
