She'll bare her body, then pray he won't demand her soul.
Melanie Craine has no time for a man in her life. With so many of her GIRL GEAR partners distracted by true love, someone has to keep business booming. But when videographer Jacob Faulkner digitally captures her completely unprofessional behavior, she's determined to make him see what's beneath her attitude. To that end—and for Jacob's eyes only—she films herself doing a steamy striptease.
Jacob never expected Melanie to retaliate the way she did, slowly removing each item of clothing just for him. Now that he's working in the GIRL GEAR office filming a documentary, there's no way he can keep things with her professional. And it can't get any better when he finds out she doesn't want anything more from him than sex. Or at least that's what they both think.

If there's a better career out there than writing, she doesn't want to know about it, as she's quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That's where she lives with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers.
