THE BAD BOYS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
This third Planet Nerak book is hysterically funny, with crazy alien antics, a surprise character cameo and literal out-of-this-world lovemaking. Readers will laugh out loud at the latest Nerakian desires and distractions and be pleased with the plethora of details finally revealed about Nerak.
Lara is Earth-bound, searching for a cure for their sick elder, and is determined to not succumb to any of Earth's temptations -- especially chocolate. But she can't resist Sam. Maybe succumbing to temptation will make it possible to have her chocolate and eat it too. (Brava, Jul., 352 pp., $14.00)
