Good read!
exceprt from B&N: You can just about picture the Reese Witherspoon of Legally Blonde as the spunky heroine of Christina Dodd's first contemporary romantic thriller, a sparkling, sexy payback tale.

Brandi Michaels, a young, gorgeous lawyer, moves to Chicago to join her fiancé, only to find out he's gone to Vegas to marry his pregnant girlfriend. She pawns the engagement ring, vamps herself up, and prepares to sleep with the first sexy man she meets that night. That man turns out to be a playboy Italian count and jewel thief, Roberto Bartolini, and the weekend is as hot and heavy as she could wish. On Monday, there's another surprise -- guess who turns out to be the client of her new law firm? Brandi not only gets to defend Roberto, who's accused of stealing a jewel, but to spend time with him 24/7, as a judge remands him into her custody. Can she reform this handsome bad boy in a hurry and prevent the jewel heist of the century in the process? Ginger Curwen

This was a fun read. The heroine came from a troubled family and there were family dynamics throughout the book which were interesting. Also, I was kept in suspense about the hero until the very end. The characters were very engaging. Her mom played a large part in the book and was quite funny. Overall, a very good suspense/action/romance. I will be looking for some more contemporary Dodd to read.

I enjoyed this book. It was much different than I was expecting. I found out from Christina Dodd's web site that this book is the first of the Fortune Hunter series. The second & third books are "Tongue in Chic" & "Thigh High".

This is too much of a "chick", romance, type book for my taste. There is lots of steamy sex, so if you like that, you'll like this one.

What a great book! It's on the Best Seller list and it sounded good so I splurged and bought it (even though I have about 50 books waiting to be read). A good story line and what a surprise at the end. It was hard to put down once I got started reading it.
