PROPOSITIONED INTO A FOREIGN AFFAIR (4) by Catherine Mann: Running from the paparazzi is something Hollywood starlet Bella Hudson knows how to do. But running from them clad in nothing but a sheet, clutching her dog Muffin, is a new experience. Enter Sam Garrison, a knight in shining armor and owner of the Garrison Grand Marseille. After a brief tussle with the photographer, Sam offers her dinner and gourmet dog treats and romances her into bed. Family secrets and a love affair gone sour have sent Bella into seclusion, and the next morning she runs from Sam. But their romance eventually blooms, although it's one step forward and two back in the media limelight. Mann's characters are charming, with the right touch of spice, and the plot is wonderfully entertaining.
