Back Cover Blurb:
Judd Sanders couldn’t believe it when the beautiful, wide-eyed woman he rescued from some drunk hoodlums started poking her gorgeous little nose into his business. She was obviously a menace to herself – not to mention to his libido. Worse, she’d blow his cover. For little did Emily Cooper know that Judd was really a cop – whose cover left him a little too “uncovered” for his liking.
Grade school teacher Carlie McDaniels trades in her frumpiness for the look of an exotic harem girl, at least for one costume party. So long, spinsterhood—and hello tall, dark and handsome Tyler Ramsey….
Even after the best night of their lives, Tyler hasn’t guessed the identity of his harem hottie…and Carlie plans on keeping him in the dark. After all, a gorgeous guy like Tyler would never fall for his smart-talking best friend. And Carlie’s not sure she wants to know what would happen if he ever unveiled the naked truth!
For both of these stories it took me a while to warm up to the female lead, but once I did I was hooked on the character. Their insecurities combined with their knowledge of what they wanted was a heady mix. The male leads in each of the stories were fantastic. Although completely different individuals, the well-developed, charismatic personas definitely leave you wanting to know them, and quite possibly falling in love.
I definitely enjoyed reading this re-issue of Foster’s first two stories. They were unique stories individually and a fantastic novel toghether.
