Normally shy, quiet, unassuming Carol sets out to nab her man. She's seen him frequent the local pub and knows that's where he goes every Friday night after work. Dolled up to the nines, her plain hair highlighted, her drab matronly garb traded in for a sexy, slinky black dress, she sits at the bar and waits. Two years after a nasty divorce, women in general aren't high on Detective Taggert's priority list. All he cares about is his work and his teenaged son--until he surprises even himself by taking the sexy seductress home for one night of passion.

My rating:

Another awwww-sound-inspiring sex-fest shorty. Once you get past the mattress rumba, this one also had a story, and some news about the couple from the previous book. Gracie and Steve are married...and expecting. Yay.

Anyway, this one was the story of Gracie's friend Carol who decided to seduce the guy she was secretly lusting for. But since her inferiority complex made her think the hunky detective wouldn't go for unassuming, shy librarian, she decided to dress up as a hooker, put in some colored contacts, and give him a fake last name.

They set the bed on fire and suddenly the guy, forgetting all the rules of one-night-stands, decides he wants to see her again. What is a girl to do? She makes a date, he stands her up (he had to work!), and she calls it quits...Leaving the poor guy searching for her for THREE WEEKS. Until her best friend takes matters into her own hands, and invites him to the school library, where he, naturally, immediately recognizes the librarian (he's a cop, for crying out loud, he ain't stupid)...

I'm going to stop now, though I'm sure you all figured out what happens next. Cute, short, hot, and sweet.
