BAD GIRL BY NIGHT
The first H.O.T. Cops novel gets the series off to a great start. The book begins with a ménage à trois and keeps on sizzling, including a foursome. But it also goes beneath the surface and studies the emotional bond between Carly and Jake.
Every few months Carly Winters ditches her good-girl persona and becomes Desiree, a temptress who seduces men in a faraway town. On one such trip she meets Jake Lockhart, who introduces her to an ongoing fantasy. Satisfied, she returns to Turnbridge and dreams about Jake until she meets the new cop in town. He’s the one man who can reveal her secret, and to her dismay he insinuates himself into her life. They’re drawn to each other, but soon they discover Carly’s not the only one with secrets.
