Finz’s third Garner Brothers contemporary (after Need You) doesn’t skimp on lively charm. Energetic prose meets quick wit as youngest Garner brother Win tries to convince self-effacing Darcy Wallace he really does think she’s beautiful. Short, curvy, perpetually single Darcy has been working the front desk at Garner Adventures in Glory Junction, Calif., for about a year, and she’s observed Win enjoying the company of a veritable parade of slender, leggy women. So late one lonely night, dressed only in a red lace teddy and spike-heeled sandals, she knocks on his door, startling the sleeping Win. Of course, timing is everything, and he’s just made a firm decision to grow up and give up his tomcat ways, so he declines her offer but then feels obliged to try to help restore what little self confidence she had before he turned her down. What ensues is a twisty and infinitely diverting game of Win pursuing Darcy until she catches him. Romance fans will enjoy this fun, frothy tale. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, Knight Agency. (Aug.)
