“Good to be Bad is a marvelous, fast-paced, riveting romance.” New York Times bestselling author Anne Stuart
Emma Sutcliffe is content playing the Good Twin to her glamorous, self-assured double, Zara, a literary superagent. Emma’s life is comfortable, predictable… if somewhat humdrum. But after she walks a mile in her sister’s yellow leather miniskirt and mile-high stilettos—hounded by a smoking hot surgeon-turned-thriller-writer who’s convinced she’s Zara—there’s no going back.
Gage Foster flew all the way to New York for a meeting with Zara Sutcliffe, and now she’s trying to stand him up? Oh, hell no! He may be a laid-back son of the South, and she may be just about the sexiest thing he’s ever seen, but that doesn’t mean he’s about to sit still for that kind of high-handed bullshit. He’ll dog her heels until she gives him what he wants.
Good to be Bad, a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA® Award, is book one in the “Double Dare” two-part romantic suspense mini series by identical-twin authors Patricia Ryan and Pamela Burford. Each book is a stand-alone romance and can be read and enjoyed on its own. The suspense story line that begins in Good to be Bad concludes in Pamela’s Twice Burned. Formerly titled Twice the Spice.

Each one is almost a stand alone but you will need to read the concusion wiith the second one.. With this author this is never a problem. Absolutely love her dialogue. CB
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Whoa. That’s it. That’s my review! Okay, seriously, I had forgotten how much I like reading books with a bit of mystery, intrigue, mayhem…with a love story and sassiness thrown in. Be warned that this book is part one of a duo of books and will not be fully “completed” until book two. I will say that the story does have an ending, of sorts, but not a conclusion. That’s okay because this story rocks! Seriously, I started it at 1 in the afternoon and just read right thru until I was done. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, as it did to me. I have no way to tell you about the book, you will have to read the blurb, but book one is about Emma Sutcliffe, twin sister to Zara (the next book is Zara’s story) and Gage Foster, former surgeon and now bestselling author. I like how Ms. Ryan describes Gage as “a laid-back son of the South”; cracks me up every time I read that. And yes, there were times I wanted to slap him upside the head – great job with his character! I loved, loved, loved their story and really hope that we get a little more in the Book Two conclusion. I’m really looking forward to reading more about this “situation”. And you will love Emma and Gage as much as I do.
