A HIGH HEELS HAUNTING

Web designer Kya Badder is as Plain-Jane as they come. So, when she sees an ad for a impractically gorgeous pair of red heels where the model is everything Kya isn't - beautiful, confident and sexy - she can't help buying them. And can't help doing a little strutting around town in them. Suddenly, thanks to her fab footwear, Kya's caught up in a new whirlwind life - a modeling contract of her own, a gorgeous boyfriend, and a life in the fast lane. It's almost as if she's stepped right into that sexy model's life. But when Kya begins having strange dreams and learns that the model died under mysterious circumstances, she learns to be careful what she wishes for, as the killer threatens to strike again.

CONFESSIONS OF A BOMBSHELL BANDIT

All Carrie Cabot ever wanted was a little freedom - sandy beaches, tropical breezes, drinks with little umbrellas in them. Instead she got an overbearing landlord, a booty-grabbing boss, and a repo man just waiting for her to park her car in the open. But Carrie's life takes a drastic turn for the worse when she's not only fired from her job at L.A. Mutual Bank, but also robbed by the sexiest bank robber alive and evicted from her apartment all in the same day. That's it. No more Miss Nice Chick. Carrie hatches a plan to take back her life - involving skimpy bikinis, semi-automatic weapons and one big bank heist. If Carrie can pull this one off, she just might realize her island dreams after all. That is, if Mr. Sexy doesn't beat her to the big score....

WATCHING YOU

Isabella is being watched. 4:15pm, Starbucks. 9:07pm, home from work. 9:26pm a long, leisurely bubble bath. Someone is cataloguing her every move, listening to her every word, developing an obsession with her. And the beautiful young attorney doesn't have a clue, has no idea that an unseen man is busy making his own plans for her. Plans that will change her life forever....

MARK OF A BOND GIRL

Maya makes a living busting cheating husbands, but her latest “mark” is suddenly making her business very personal.

    Interesting collection

    I didn't realize when I bought this that it was a collection of short stories. At any rate, for the most part they were good. I think there was one included that I thought was way too short and kind of unfinished. Good for a beach read.

    Funny

    I loved this collection. My only complaint was wishing the stories were longer. If you have never read any of Gemma Hallidays books , this would definately be a great one to start with. She is a great storyteller. There is no way i could pick which story was my favorite either. Loved them all!
