Alexander's new quartet, The Last Man Standing, begins with a rousing,
lusciously tempting and very naughty Susan Johnson-style start. Beyond
her engaging characters and plot, Alexander delivers real, deep emotion within her sexually charged fantasy.
A surefire introduction to what promises
to be a memorable series.

Though each of the four friends and bachelors know they will have to wed, they wager that the last to evade the marriage trap wins a prize. Gideon Pearsall, Viscount Warton, is positive it will be him. Then he's drawn to the exquisitely beautiful Judith, Lady Chester. She's a challenge, rumored to be a bit wicked, and he's sure he can bed -- but not wed -- her.

Judith keeps her reputation intact. There may be innuendoes about her naughty nature, but she discreetly follows her own rules on love affairs. Then there's Gideon. She's believes she can tryst with him and not fall in love. What fun it is to see two people, so determined not to fall into love's web, get caught as their lust-filled games lead them further and further from lust towards love. (Avon, Jan., 386 pp., $6.99)
