Showalter delivers another smart and sexy romance brimming with hilarious pickup lines, fiery banter and steamy sensuality. A wickedly well-matched hero and heroine mix with an entertaining, creative and tremendously
fun premise.

Jillian Greene works at Catch a Mate as "bait," a person hired by suspicious women to test their man's faithfulness. Her job is to prove -- or, more likely, disprove -- the man's fidelity without laying a hand on him. Based on her extensive fieldwork, she's concluded that men are lying, cheating pigs.

Enter the erotically hot, fantasy-inspiring Marcus Brody, who joins the Catch a Mate staff to play "bait" to potentially straying women. With jobs like these, is it any wonder these two have trust issues? But both dream of finding an honorable lover who's resistant to temptation. And now, despite their animosity toward the other and their personal experience to the contrary, each may have caught the right mate at last. (HQN, Jun., 384 pp., $13.95)
