Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why Is It That I’m Not Willing to Settle for a Sheep Like the Rest of My Friends?

Sheep sex aside, what’s wrong with a man who puts family first, who maintains a steady job, has college funds set up for his kids and builds that nest egg for his retirement? Member of the herd, never straying. Solid, dependable Sheep Guy. Why can’t I love Sheep Guy?

For me, it’s all those wolves. They distract me from the sheep. Wolf Guy. Always on the prowl. Totally alpha. Not interested in being domesticated. So what is it about these men that makes my heart speed up in a way no sheep ever has or ever will?

Tanzy Harrington is the Bay Area’s most-read romance columnist and self-proclaimed love-’em-and-leave-’em artist--and she’s not quite ready to tie herself down to one man. That is, until Riley Parrish lands on the scene.

When Tanzy agrees to house-sit for her eccentric great-aunt, she finds herself sharing close quarters with Riley. At first he seems a bit too much like the “sheep” Tanzy derides in her column--too polite, the classic boring good provider. But when she catches a glimpse of the “wolf” lurking in his eyes, the ultimate alpha female is about to take a fall.

Review:

"Tanzy and Riley have lively, likable voices, but the stalker mystery subplot never really gathers steam, and neither do Tanzy and Riley's interminable presex dialogues (though Kauffman's sizzling love scenes are almost worth the wait)....But for those dreaming of alpha males at poolside? It might fit the bill." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A woman who's more conventional than she realizes, a man who's really a wolf in sheep's clothing, an unapologetic matchmaker, and a surprise villain make up the cast of this romantic comedy, which has just the right amount of humor and suspense." Library Journal

Synopsis:

In Kauffman's newest fast-paced, sexy romp, a woman who's a self-avowed Lone Wolf--with a trail of broken hearts behind her--finds herself face to face with love.

About the Author

Once upon a time, Donna Kauffman was born in Washington D.C. Alas, there were no glass slippers in her closet, but fate was kind, and a trustworthy (and totally hot) knight did cross her path.
