Little does Liz Adams know that the bad boy sitting in her coffee shop is the man who will help find her missing cousin, Valerie, before her aunt and uncle get to town. Private detective Steve Wilde comes highly recommended.

From the start it's lust at first sight. In order to locate her cousin, Liz takes a job as a phone sex operator, with the goal of scoring an invite to the Ultimate Fantasy Party, where they can uncover Valerie's whereabouts. Steve becomes her most devoted caller—and only he can put out the fire his calls ignite in Liz. Steve and Liz can't keep their hands off one another, but both have emotional baggage and neither wants any ties.

They finally receive the coveted invitation and get to the party, where someone slips Liz a mickey. When three men try to carry her off, Steve comes to the rescue. But until the drug wears off all he can do is give Liz what she needs to cool the heat.

WILDE THING is hot, hot, hot. With its intense sexual tension, great dialogue and memorable characters you won't want to put this page-turner down. Steve is the second Wilde brother, and readers will eagerly anticipate the next Wilde boy's story. (Jul., 352 pp., $14.00)
