Petite & perky, Tricia Todd shocked herself as much as the 17 year old burglar when she whipped out her nephew's water pistol and threatened to shoot him. She more than got her man--she got 2 men. Freddy, the felon, and Spence Walker, the sinfully handsome & thoroughly pessimistic cop, both wanted & needed the sunshine in Tricia's soul. Spence was too tough, too protective, & too cynical to go along w/ her efforts at reforming Freddy. But it was too important to Tricia, so she did it behind his back. Responding to Spence's potent kisses w/ wild abandon, she began to see Freddy looming as a bigger threat than she could have imagined...a threat that revelaed the gulf between her cheerful nature & Spence's world-weariness. And the most urgent question was, could her tough guy, the love of her life, learn to live on her sunny side of the street?
