Okay ladies. Couldn't believe it until I saw it for myself. Who would think that someone could come up with something this bad? You'll have to click on the link below, then click on the link within the written entry (it's the title of her book, Death by ...). Be sure to browse the comments which is a link beneath the written entry. The title alone is ridiculous, especially since I didn't know quite what part of the title meant -- until I read the Urban Dictionary definition (link included). Unbelievable!!! I don't know whether to laugh, shudder, or shake my head (actually, I think I did all three).

Yes I had seen that title.  It's horrid.  The story is actually related to some books of her I actually enjoyed and still have but that title is sooooo off-putting I just can't download it.

Shari - I would recommend her early books - High Energy and High Intensity (comtemporaries) and Rejar and Knight of  Trillion Stars (paranormal).  I still have them on my keeper shelves.

I ordered High Energy and High Intensity, but I'm gonna have to pass on the ploot.  Sounds like a deadly yeast infection or something equally gross...

Kim I absolutely love the couple in High Energy and High Intensity!  I wish she would go back and write a 3rd book with them.

I never knew what the word ploot means until I read the definition. LOL!
