His Kind of Trouble

Terri L. Austin. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (416p) ISBN 978-1-4926-2347-2
Austin’s strong second Beauty and the Brit contemporary (after His Every Need) is an enjoyable one-sitting read. Wealthy English car restorer Cal Hughes had a quick but unforgettable snog with feisty Monica Campbell when they met at the wedding of Cal’s cousin Trevor to Monica’s sister, Allie. When Cal returns to Las Vegas to visit Trevor, he can’t believe that Monica is now a buttoned-up professional: wearing boring suits, working a nine-to-five job, and living in an undecorated apartment. Monica’s tired of getting in trouble and determined to leave her wild days behind. She manages a cancer foundation set up in memory of her mother, though she finds Allie’s micromanagement stifling and insulting. Cal’s determined pursuit of her makes her want to reveal the sexy lingerie under her suits—and maybe even break free of her regimented, unexciting life. Austin has a real talent for writing steamy sex between plausible characters who trade clever banter in the aftermath, and readers will adore Cal’s support for Monica’s true self. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Nov.)
