Even though the weather is beginning to cool, McCarthy is still heating things up in her latest sizzling release. Dr. Houston Hayes prides himself for never getting involved with a co-worker. So when he ends up lusting after resident physician Dr. Josie Adkins, who is short, bubbly, clumsy and not his type at all, he begins to question his mental health. Breaking his own code of ethics by propositioning Josie with one night of no-strings-attached sex, he knows it's the only solution that will get her out of his system.

McCarthy delivers a fast-paced read with emotionally deep characters and a well-developed plot with realistic conflict. Throw in some humorous dialogue and steaming, curl-your-toes passion and Houston may have a problem, but readers definitely won't! (Sep., 304 pp., $14.00)
