Foster introduced bounty hunter Bryan Kelly in Say No to Joe? Now he's back and undercover, trying to maintain his secret life as "the preacher" in order to find out who is trying to sabotage his brother's charity organization— a safe house for prostitutes. Only he didn't think his twin brother, the real preacher, would appreciate him lusting after one of the newcomers, a prostitute named Shay Sommers.

Shay's been called many things of late in the gossip columns, but a "hooker" isn't one of them. All she's ever wanted was to help those in need with her charity work, but things went terribly wrong.

Through a twist of fate, the gorgeous preacher who ran the local safe house for "working girls" just accused her of being a hooker. Perhaps she should convince him she is— and redeem herself in the process.

Foster delivers another sexy and sizzling tale rich in plot and excitement. THE SECRET LIFE OF BRYAN is original, poignant, laced with humor and just plain delicious. (Mar., 384 pp.,$14.00)
