All Night Lover

Sylvia Lett, Dafina, $6.99 (288p) ISBN 978-0-7582-3479-7

Wish fulfillment runs wild in Lett's sketchy romance. Gorgeous Cassie Randall, 25, has already endured two terrible marriages—to the same man. Fleeing to her wealthy father's home in Texas with her four-year-old son, she drops by her sister's bachelorette party and mistakes the leather-clad proprietor of the bar for a stripper. Thus begins the series of miscommunications and misunderstandings that constitute her relationship with the devastatingly handsome playboy Dr. Adam Hart, 34, who in addition to owning the bar is an ER physician and multimillionaire businessman. The two quarrel repeatedly, but their travails are difficult to take seriously; Lett (Take Me Down) spends countless pages on the details of skin tone, hairstyle, and designer clothing while skimming past plot developments so quickly they blur together. Even her fans may be less than thrilled with this venture. (Aug.)
