Inman makes the old plot of a great love between a star and a common laborer new, exciting, fun -- and just plain hot. The misunderstandings are so funny that readers may laugh out loud, while the love scenes are very graphic and sexy. With a bit of mystery thrown into the mix, this read has something for everyone. This is set up to be the first of a series; here's hoping Inman will follow with more of this delightful storyline.
Enter Sloan, a builder brought on to build a beautiful castle set. Sloan is sure Kelly is just like her character and is determined to dislike her. But with Wilda's prodding, they just may find love. (Whiskey Creek, Jul., 251 pp., $12.95)
