Bad Girl Meets Good Boy in the Second Goody’s Goodies Novel

23 July, 2015

Laura K. Curtis, author of Toying With His Affections, brings you a second contemporary romance featuring heroines who sell adult toys.

“I unexpectedly really loved this one. Full of hair dye, unique style and a kick ass heroine, this book had me immediately hooked.” – Obsessed with My Shelf

As the manager of Las Vegas’s premiere adult toy store, Kai Tyler changes her hair color, nail color, and eye color the way some people change socks. In fact, she’s even changed her name. She owes no one, depends on no one, and stopped believing in happily ever after before she reached the age of ten. All she really wants out of life is a few good gadgets and the occasional day of pampering.

Which is exactly why Luke Clarke asks her to be his date at his sister’s wedding. Luke loves his family, but he has no desire to fulfill his parents’ dream by getting married and going into politics. So when he’s invited to his sister’s weeklong wedding gala, he thinks Kai will be the perfect foil. Having a date will squelch his mother’s matchmaking attempts and Kai’s outrageous appearance might—just might—convince his family once and for all that he’ll never have a career in politics.

But as stress, desire, and close quarters eat away at the masks both Luke and Kai wear, their easy arrangement begins to transform into something neither expected. Will they cling to the stable roles of the past, or bet on an uncertain future together?

“Readers looking for a charming and heartwarming story will get just that as well as a steamy tale proving that love comes when you least expect it.” – J. Faltys

Published in crime fiction, romantic suspense, and contemporary romance, Laura K. Curtis lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband and a pack of wild Irish Terriers, which has taught her how easily love can coexist with the desire to kill. Gaming the System is out now, and Mind Games is coming November 2105 from Penguin/InterMix.
