Fox (Love, Unexpectedly) delivers a contemporary love story sure to make readers go weak in the knees. Jenna Fallon is driving up the California coast on her way to her sister's wedding when she meets Dr. Mark Chambers, marine biologist, at a roadside diner. While both hail from academic, overachieving families, Jenna has chosen the life of a wandering free spirit while multifaceted Mark works to save the earth from the back of his bumper-stickered camper. It's hard for Jenna to take any man seriously: "It was fun to rattle his scientific cage, fun to tease him away from being so conservative and rule-bound." Will the gorgeous hippie realize her sexy "square" could be more to her than a mere hookup? Well-crafted story lines and richly observed characters bolster a strong erotic element in this delightful, memorable romance. (Feb.)
