by Lucille Naroian
Romance / Contemporary / Women's FictionPublished: 2010-05-01 MayPriceFormatLengthBook ID
A mystery writer trying to gain the respect her craft deserves runs afoul of a caustic talk-show host who hates mystery writers with a passion that engulfs them both. Yesterday they were strangers ... today they’re the talk of the town!
Samantha McCall might look like a hot and spicy romance author, but writing under the name Sam McCall, she pens murder mysteries ... the kind that keep readers up all night. Samantha's agent promises her big break will come with a last-minute scheduled appearance on a popular nighttime TV talk show. Samantha knows the host's reputation and is not so sure that's a good idea.
Acid-tongued talk-show host Tony Garrett hates the mystery genre and despises the writers even more. Without even seeing the author about to appear on stage with him, he maligns 'Mr.' McCall as a hack - but changes his mind the moment Samantha makes her entrance. When she slaps him square on the jaw and storms off-stage, their nationally televised feud skyrockets the show's ratings.
Tony Garrett keeps his heart closely guarded, but he's uncontrollably smitten after that one encounter with the feisty redhead. Samantha McCall wants nothing more to do with the caustic celebrity host after their embarrassing public rivalry. Can he convince her they belong together ... and will she let him get close enough to try? With the public clamoring for more on-stage fireworks, a rematch seems inevitable. Whatever these two do is sure to end up ... the talk of the town!
