FEET FIRST

Author(s): 
Jenny's boss, Sal, the top designer at Bellagio Shoes, has a drinking problem that often leaves her covering for him. Using her own designs and passing them off as Sal's is her way of repaying him for hiring her and giving her exciting, if secret, opportunities to use her talents.

When Jenny is outed by Sal, she ends up working with Marc Waterson, Bellagio's vice president. Suddenly, Jenny finds herself not only desiring Marc but also possessing a chance to design her own line of evening shoes. Though it appears Marc is looking for a wife, can Jenny convince him to look in her direction?

This is a fun, light and romantic read. In spite of the overuse of a gay good buddy for the heroine, the story is entertaining, with no real villains and some very satisfying, interesting characters. A delightful story all around. (Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
