Bestselling new adult author Lauren finds romance for another wary woman in the hot fourth installment of the Wild Season contemporary series (after Dark Wild Night). London Hughes, a bartender, surfer, and future graphic designer, has put a brutal betrayal behind her and has no intention of falling for another lying male, no matter how tempting he may be. Then she meets “hot-as-sin” law student Luke Sutter. After grudgingly agreeing to go out with him, London finds herself enthusiastically participating in what she swears will be just a one-night stand. Meanwhile Luke, a veteran heartbreaker—exactly the type London wants to avoid—is more than a little disturbed by his growing interest in London, who insists she only wants a casual relationship. The atmospheric San Diego setting, full of partying, video games, and casual hookups, provides a bright contrast to Luke and London’s angst-filled romance. Fans of earthy relationships and the brisk, bright dialogue of Lauren’s previous books will find plenty of both to enjoy. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Feb.)
