My Kind of Town

Deputy Kyle Treharne hates Yankees—especially exotically beautiful ones like Emma Lucchesi who show up in his seaside North Carolina town. But if the sexy New Yorker's got a few tricks up her sleeve, so does the lawman. Something's gotta give. . .

JENNIFER APODACA

You Give Love a Good Name

When wedding planner Lexie Rollins defended herself (with a staple gun) against a sleazy groom, who knew the assault and battery charges would stick? Now Lexie's running from gorgeous bounty hunter Nick Vardolous, who always gets his woman—every which way imaginable. . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Loosely linked by surf, shore, and plenty of sizzle, this trio of sexy stories sweeps readers from coast to coast with passion, flair, and a paranormal twist. A couple contemplating divorce are stranded at their old vacation cottage on Firefly Island and get a final chance to repair their relationship in Miller's One Last Weekend; a wedding planner on the run takes refuge in a seaside resort and must deal with the attractive bounty hunter who has her in his sights in Jennifer Apodaca's You Give Love a Good Name; and a Yankee witch heads south to close a "dimensional door" and finds romance, as well as danger, with a shape-changing panther lawman in Shelly Laurenston's surreal novella, My Kind of Town. Miller lives near Spokane; Apodaca resides in Southern California; and Laurenston calls the West Coast home.

'One Last Weekend' by Linda Lael Miller. Their attorney friend handling their divorce asks Teague and Joanna Darby to spend a weekend together at their cottage. Whereas the lawyer hopes for a reconciliation, neither Darby expects one although a ferry strike and the storm outside leaves them stranded dealing with each other¿s desire for one another.--------------- 'You Give Love a Good Name' by Jennifer Apodaca. Wedding planner turned thriller novelist Lexie Rollins escapes from her family, a stalking groom whom she stapled when he mauled her though she was charged for battery, and the cops so that she can complete her latest work on time. However, a bounty hunter she met four months earlier arrives in the Nick (Vardolous) of time.----------- 'My Kind of Town¿ by Shelly Laurenston. Witch Emma Lucchesi arrives in Smithville, North Carolina to the consternation of shape-shifting deputy sheriff Kyle Treharne. He detests Yankees especially one who lives within a baseball toss of the Stadium, but somehow she has bewitched him anyway.-------------- These three fun contemporary romances star strong protagonists struggling with their respective relationships. Though the sub-genre underlying theme of each tale differs (family drama, suspense, and fantasy) making one wonder why this mix, contemporary romance readers will enjoy these fine novellas.--------- Harriet Klausner
