What would you do if an irresistibly desirable but utterly untouchable woman whispered to you, If you want me, you'll have to come and get me?

That's exactly the situation that Elliott Foster, CEO of Foster MacKenzie, finds herself in when she meets the alluring Lauren Collier, Chief Legal Counsel of a Fortune 500 company. Elliott never has a shortage of attractive women willing to share her bed, and she doesn't care if they are attracted to her or just her money. By her rules, if two women are attracted to each other there's no reason why they shouldn't spend the night together--or in some cases, the afternoon. Lauren, intriguing but decidedly off-limits, doesn't fit the mold and Elliot knows she should walk away. Instead she finds herself in the unusual position of pursuing another woman, and even more disconcertingly...on Lauren's terms. Come and Get Me is a passionate, rollercoaster romance that's anything but predictable.

Very well written first in series. (Definitely hope it's to be a series). Story centered around a relief vet in small town. While realizing a vet would have a large number of clients/patients, the large number of characters made it a bit slower to read as I had to spend time remembering who was who. Not sure less characters would have made easier but less interesting or perhaps a bit more character development for people as was done with the pets? A few minor editing errors such as "women" instead of the correct "woman". And confusing name of Sandy's cousin - Frankie and the a page later - Freddie. Good storyline with liikable characters, & plot solid until one character suddenly more to the forefront which helped me figure out whodunit but not the whys. I am looking forward to reading more Eileen's Kate Turner mysteries. Highly recommended especially for cozy and animal lovers mystery readers.

Editorial Review - Cahners Business Information (c) 2002
This eclectic collection of mysteries, penned by an equally diverse array of authors, takes readers on a richly atmospheric journey through Alaska. Donna Andrews ("An Unkindness of Ravens") launches the anthology with the haunting story of a woman who devises an unusual way of getting even with a philandering husband, and John Straley wraps it up with "Finding Lou," a poignant poem narrated by a ...
More jaded detective. Everything in between is a genre grab bag. Anne Perry's "Rearrangements," about three sisters who struggle through an earthquake, is more an affirmation of sisterly love than a mystery. Likewise, "The Twin" by Brad Reynolds is a slight, supernatural tale of a Yupig mask said to protect its ancestors. Theft plays a role in both "Losing Streak," Sue Henry's amusing parable of a bungling burglar, and Dana Stabenow's evocative "Cheechako," in which a group of travelers trek across the Chilkoot Pass during the Klondike gold rush era. Unlike most mysteries, however, these stories revolve around the clime, the characters and their hardships instead of whodunit. Polished works by Michael Armstrong, S.J. Rozan, Mike Doogan, Kate Grilley, Kim Rich and James Sarafin round out the collection, but readers new to the mystery scene will likely appreciate these snippets of Alaskan life more than hardcore fans.
