Bad Billy Jones liked his life. He ran a night club, bringing in great talent and made good money from his songs. Women and drink were always ready. What more could a man want?

He sure didn't want the strange old man claiming to be his Uncle Oggie, or all the cousins he talked about. He didn't want the problem of the infant son hed just discovered. And he definitely didnt want his son's uptight Aunt Prudence in his life.

Why, then, did he follow them all back to North Magdalene, the heart of this big family and the home of his son and the stuffy aunt? Darned if he knows, but he's determined to make a place for himself in his son's life and crack Prudence's shell.

If you're a reader who likes bad boys, Christine Rimmer delivers. You will enjoy this page-turner. (Oct., 304 pp., $5.99)
