After the death of her sister, a woman finds herself raising her infant nephew alone in BOOTIES AND THE BEAST (3). Determined to have the father, a noted childrens author, acknowledge his responsibility to his son, she finds a way to get a job working for him. Although this dark and attractive man is anything but a beast, he does possess an air of mystery that is both attractive and unsettling. Things really heat up when they realize the feelings they have for each other are built on lies. Valerie Parv has woven an emotional and multi-layered tale that holds the reader until the very end.
