All men are not created equal…
Fletcher Campbell thought he'd been hired by famous film producer Justine Gaynor to be her right-hand man, but quickly learns that she only wants him for how good he looks in a bathing suit—as evidenced by the frequent meetings poolside she insists he attend wearing only his Chubbies swim trunks, and where her hands always seem to find their way onto his naked flesh. He's determined to prove he's more than just a pretty face when he persuades her to premiere her latest film in his hometown of Bristol, Montana. Only he gets more than he bargains for when she makes him the laughingstock of the place he once called home.
Cricket Ferguson has no need for men in her life. She's perfectly happy running the little French patisserie she started upon returning home to Bristol after a stint in pastry school in Paris and working at bakeries on the East Coast. Her shop keeps her plenty busy and besides, who's got time for men who are only going to break your heart? Certainly not Cricket. That is, until the boy she wanted to marry shows back up in town on the arm of some famous Hollywood type, flaunting his fame and fortune and reminding her of the pain he caused when he went away all those years ago.
About the Author
Thank you so much for reading my books! I hope you'll find some that keep you from doing the dishes, or vacuuming, or maybe even cause you to stay up later than you'd planned to (although I covet my sleep, so I'd feel guilty if I was to blame for that too often!).
I'm the author of SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEAVER, winner of Romantic Times/Dorchester Publishing's American Title III contest, bestseller SLIM TO NONE, the IT'S REIGNING MEN contemporary romance series, including SOMETHING IN THE HEIR, HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW, BAD TO THE THRONE, LOVE IS IN THE HEIR and SHAME OF THRONES (book 6, THRONE FOR A LOOP, comes out in March); ANYWHERE BUT HERE; WHERE THE HEART IS; the memoir BITE ME: A PARROT, A FAMILY AND A WHOLE LOT OF FLESH WOUNDS; the essay collection NAKED MAN ON MAIN STREET; two contemporary romances as Erin Delany: ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE, & COMPROMISING POSITIONS. I have a funny dog story in I'M NOT THE BIGGEST BITCH IN THIS RELATIONSHIP. And I've got many more novels in the works!
I've had pieces appear in Ladies Home Journal, the Washington Post, Marie-Claire.com, and on NPR's Day to Day. I honed my fiction writing skills while working as a publicist for a US Senator. Other jobs I've held have included: an orthodontic assistant (learning quite readily that I wasn't cut out for a career in polyester), a waitress (probably my highest-paying job), a TV reporter, a pre-obituary writer, and a photographer (once being Prince Charles' photographer in Washington!). Oh I'm also the volunteer coordinator for the Virginia Film Festival, which is a great one!
I live in Virginia with my husband and a small menagerie; we have three grown children, one of whom lives in Australia and I dream of visiting her there. I love all things Italian, regularly fantasize about traveling to exotic locales, and feel a little bit guilty for rarely attempting to clean the house.

This is a sexy and fun read that fans of the genre will enjoy. It was entertaining to read about a man being sexually harassed and the umbrage he takes at unwanted touching, while it also forcing him to take a hard look at his life and life choices. I love a second chance romance and thoroughly loved seeing Fletcher and Cricket together and if they can overcome their past. Put this one on your TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.
