THE MARINE MEETS HIS MATCH
Rad Kozlowski pits his Marine sensibilities against sizzling romance in The Marine Meets His Match (4.5) by Cathie Linz. Rad likes giving orders, and bookseller Serena is not at all obedient. But each has compelling reasons for entering into a fake engagement. Rad looks at the plan as a dark ops mission, with subterfuge and deception the requirements for a successful outcome. Serena hates the deception but thrills to Rad's touch. When these two get together, steam rises off the page. Linz's skill with characters, her deft humor and her fresh plotting make every page of this book delicious fun.
