NAUGHTY OR NICE
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
With a bit of Christmas in the background, Erwin presents a seemingly lightweight heroine who obsesses about clothes and shoes yet loves her family wholeheartedly. Much of the book deals with her sexual exploits with the wrong man, but in the end her growth as a character is enjoyable. Disappointingly, the true hero is given short shift.
Hermes, in the guise of Nick Anglos, has come to Earth to spy on Hades' human love, Kate, and their daughter. At first unwilling, he changes his mind once he sees Kate's widowed sister, Bennie St. James.
Bennie is have trouble adjusting to life without her husband, especially financially. She decides she must get a job and goes to work for Habitat for Humanity. This gets her an introduction to Nick and reacquainted with carpenter Josh Brandon. Though Nick gets her hot and bothered when she's with him, it's Josh who seems to understand her and her two children best. In the end, she can choose only one. Which will it be -- the one that gives her the best sex she's ever had, or the one that brings out the best in her?
