Much MUCH better character development than typical for this sort of novel (you know, the thinner harlequin style series romances). And as an extremely pleasant change, you can actually understand WHY these characters love each other. The author does a really great job of showing you their motivations and weaknesses - all on a very steamy backdrop.

My favorite part of the book - where it started to get really good, was right at the beginning, as the heroine is applying for an accounting job with the Mayor, and for a hidden confidence boost she decides to wear one of her stripper outfits under her suit...and then (accidentally - really) drops her portfolio onto the floor in front of her boss.

"Mike stood in the doorway a second after Autumn passed, fighting for his composure...appearance was irrelevant to the job, of course...while fighting her for her portfolio, he'd caught a glipse of the sexiest bra he'd ever seen in his life. Black leather and, God help him, open at the tips? She'd been too busy defending her credentials to notice that he was staring at her as if she was dinner and he was starving. Hell, he was likely to skid on his own drool."

Cute, hot, fast read. :)

A former stripper wants a new profession, accounting. She gets a temporary position working for a small town mayor, whom she sees as a stick in the mud and having no life of his own. She helps him learn to let go a little, but when he wants to get serious she feels that a small town is just not right for her, nor will her reputation stand up to the town gossips if she is to be the mayors girlfriend. Sneaking around was find, but coming out is out of the question.

He may be the boss, but she's definitely in charge! Former stripper Autumn Beshkin is an urban girl eyeing a new profession. To climb this career ladder she's keeping her clothes on and taking an accounting job. Small-town living isn't as exciting as she's used to, but it's only temporary. Then she meets her sexy new boss, Mayor Mike Fields. The attraction between them steams up the office, and suddenly her visit here promises hedonistic pleasure.

Luring the conservative mayor into some not-so-mayoral activities isn't difficult for a woman of Autumn's talents. And the results are sizzling! But just as she's eyeing the exit ramp out of town, Mike suggests turning this fling into a commitment. Is he - and his traditional town - really ready for the uncut version of Autumn?
