After eight years, Xandra Farrel's lover Mark decides to move on. While she's been raised on her famous mother's no-marriage philosophy, Xandra's been seriously considering having a baby. Despite the crash and burn of her love life, Xandra can't let her depression mess up her company, "Wild Women, Inc."

As the manufacturer of sex toys for women, Xandra has made a practice of testing out all new products herself. On the eve of launching a potential bestseller, Xandra needs to find a man quick. As fate would have it, Beau Hollister, former high school bad boy and the subject of Xandra's worst sexual experience, reenters her life.

Beau knows he blew things all those years ago and senses that Xandra is up to something. So the question is: Is Beau willing to withstand the heat and seduction?

The second Farrel sister gets her comeuppance in Raye's sexy and sassy tale. Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice certainly lives up to its name. (Oct., 352 pp., $7.99)
