THE WILD ONE
Eagan's talent for creating fast-paced stories and three-dimensional characters makes for a nonstop tale. Adding
a large dose of sexual tension, memorable secondary characters and a
theater backdrop simply multiplies readers' enjoyment.
Boston-bred Lee Montgomery is the black sheep of his family, a gambler and a rogue who breaks hearts and doesn't stay in one place.
Then he meets Jessica Sullivan, the aloof actress who piques his curiosity by spurning him. For Jessica, being attracted to Lee is a danger she can't afford. No one knows she's still married to the cad who abandoned her six years ago. But Lee's not about to give up. He craves unleashing the passionate women inside the ice-cold lady. As he works to lure Jessica into his arms, danger looms in the form of murder, an ex-husband, a kidnapping and his family's intervention. With the help of his remarkable family and friends, he and Jessica just might find their way to happiness. (ZEBRA, Jan., 320 pp., $4.99)
