In the companion release to NATURALLY NAUGHTY, Jill Shalvis' NAUGHTY BUT NICE (3) follows wild child Cassie Tremaine Montgomery, Kate's cousin, who also returns to small midwestern Pleasantville. Speeding into town in her yellow Porsche, she's got a double agenda—to hide from a stalker and get revenge for her unhappy childhood. Sheriff Sean Taggart is more than a little curious about her bad-ass attitude and the super-sized chip on her shoulder. But he discovers that Cassie isn't letting anyone get close emotionally. While the intense sex scenes provide some interesting moments, Cassie's emotional baggage far exceeds weight limits, making it hard to believe that Tag would fall for her. Yet overall, there is still a strong pull to the story.
