Showgirl Treena McCall leads a glamorous life—on stage, anyway. When she's not working, she's just a young widow with dreams of opening her own dance school. Romance isn't part of her game plan, but when she meets professional poker player Jax Gallagher, all bets are off. What Treena doesn't know is that Jax is her late husband's long-estranged son—and that he needs her cooperation to pay off an extraordinary gambling debt.

Skintight is a delight, boasting a strong plot, a colorful setting and lots of witty banter. Best of all are the characters—particularly, complicated hunk Jax, golden-hearted Treena and the couple duking it out in the secondary romance. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
