Passion this hot can't be faked
All revved up for bright lights and steamy nights, writer Veronica Chandler chased her dreams to New York City. When she hit a dead end, reality sent her back home to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Saving her pride and her new gigwriting a relationship advice column!requires some faking. No one can know the truth about her big-city flop or her nonexistent sex life. But the town's irresistibly rugged librarian is determined to figure her out
and give her hands-on lessons in every wicked thing she wants to know.
Gabe MacKenzie's heart might be in Wyoming, but secretly his future's tied up in his family's Manhattan legacy. Getting down and dirty with Veronica is supposed to give him a few memorable nightsnot complicate his plans. But the thing about heat this scorching is there's just no going back
and it might be too hot for either of them to take.
"Dahl (Flirting with Disaster) breaks little new ground in this thin story of a 27-year-old woman's sexual awakening. After failing to make it in the Big Apple, Veronica Chandler returned to Jackson, Wyo., where she gives relationship advice, much of it explicitly sexual, in her 'Dear Veronica' column. She carefully hides her own lack of sexual experience. Her deep-seated feelings of unworthiness and undesirability stemming from her horrible parents and verbally abusive stepbrother only change after she meets Gabe MacKenzie, an outdoors-loving, rock-climbing librarian who has allotted himself a year of happiness in Wyoming before taking over his family's restaurant empire in New York City. The two fall in love and share lots of hot sex and dirty talk, but Gabe hides his future plans until the book's final third. As the fallout falls out, the story finally turns meaningful, but it is too little too late. Agent: Amy Moore-Benson, AMB Literary Management. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
