Image of The Flirt

Charismatic characters add a nice touch to this unusual story. Each character is a little wacky and confused about life and love, and the author's skilled use of both humor and drama engages and captures the reader's attention.

Hughie Armstrong Venables-Smythe, an unemployed young actor looking to make some quick money, answers an unusual ad and is hired as a professional flirt. He hopes to use the techniques he learns in his professional life in his personal life -- Hughie has fallen for the lovely Leticia Vane.

Leticia, a successful lingerie boutique owner, is quite a bit older than Hughie. She also doesn't believe in love and wants to keep her flings casual. When she starts receiving notes and clues written on cards, she can't help but be intrigued. Perhaps love is in the cards for Leticia and Hughie after all. (AVON A, Jul., 384 pp., $13.95)
