Still mending after a cruel split from his wife, Jack Carter, alis Celeste D"Arcy and one of the hottest romance writers around, has decided to call off sex until he finds the one--no easy task when Jack's reputation has wopmen going to acrobatic extremes to seduce him. Jack is determined to let his heart lead the way. So when Molly Desire, a recovering sexaholic who's down on her luck shows up in Jack's doorstep at his sister's suggestion, he takes her in only reluctantly. Things get even sticker when Molly decides to try her hand at writing romances herself. As her racy and explicit novels take off, she and Jack suddenly find themselves in a professional and personal competition that drives them as far apart as it brings them together. And thens there's Jack's sister,who thinks she's not getting enough; Jack's niece, who's about to get too much; and Jack's mother, who is in danger of being kicked out of her retirement home for "inappropriate" behaviour with the few remaining male residents,. With his life spinning out of control, Jack thinks his only solace is in his perfect romantic plots --that is, until reality throws him a much more satisfying curveball. Full of heart and crackling wit and energy, this is a book to utterly devour.
