Reporter Kim Washington has created the perfect contest-"The Nicest Guy in America"-to garner new readers. Unfortunately, the man most likely to win wants nothing to do with the contest. Intrigued by his sexy voice and several titillating phone calls, Kim set out to change his mind.

Reggie Stevens can't believe Kim wants him to go on record with his observations about being single and being dumped six times. That's not the kind of publicity he wants-at least it isn't before he meets the sexy, savory Ms. Kimberla Washington.

Angela Benson, a veteran romance writer, has earned her "stars and bars" with this sensational, subtle and sensual battle of the sexes. Kim and Reggie make Hepburn and Tracy seem like Pebbles and Bam-Bam in comparison. Congratulations, Ms. Benson, on your promotion from captain to general in the Romance Writers Corps Elite.
