Sly ´´Bullhorn´´ Brodsky wished winning the heart of Samantha Drake was as easy as protecting his quarterback. A top offensive lineman in the NFL, Bull tried to live down his rep as a womanizer. Locker room chatter had elevated him to the level of ´´player´´ in more than football. But Samantha Drake, dark-haired, stunning sister of a teammate, didn´t want to have anything to do with him. Or did she? On his best behavior, Bull pulled out all the stops to woo the reluctant beauty. He was making progress until a woman from his past reappeared. Tiffany, the one woman who broke his heart, is in trouble. Is Bull the only man who can help? Samantha is overcoming her doubts about Bull until Tiffany arrives. Is the blonde really in hot water or does she just want another chance with the man she discarded? Enjoy the return of your favorite First & Ten characters in this book, too. Surprises, twists, and football action scenes will keep you turning the pages. Snippets from the book: #1 He sat in the rocking chair while Samantha washed the dirt off her luscious body. Or what he assumed was luscious. Sylvester ´´Bullhorn´´ Brodsky, known to his teammates as ´´Bull,´´ had the hots for Samantha Drake, and it was keeping him up nights. While he waited for her to want him back, his imagination ran through a half dozen things he´d like to do to her under the warming spray of hot water. She was a little slip of a thing, and he was huge. Six foot three inches tall and two hundred fifty pounds of pure muscle, the offensive lineman could lift her up with one hand. #2 Samantha closed the front door and leaned back against it. Her pulse was racing, her face was hot, and she was a bit breathless. She had never expected the big man to be able to kiss like that. Of course, if he was a major seducer, that would make sense. But he appeared to be real sweet. He´d helped her move all day then taken her to dinner-his only reward a couple of steamy kisses. Doesn´t fit with the image of a major player. He tasted like café au lait , and he smelled like a woodsy aftershave mixed with his own, unique scent. When her fingers had tightened around his biceps, a tingle had shot all the way through her. The man was solid steel. Except his warm skin. She had braced herself against his chest.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Four charming, witty novels-including The Nutmeg Tree-from the ´´highly gifted´´ New York Times-bestselling author of Cluny Brown (The New Yorker). A master of the twentieth-century comedy of manners, British author Margery Sharp has been praised as ´´one of the most gifted writers of comedy´´ (Chicago Daily News) and ´´a wonderful entertainer´´ (The New Yorker). Available for the first time in a single volume, this quartet of novels provides a shining example of ´´her brilliantly acerbic fiction . . . [and] one of her greatest talents, creating female characters of toughness and complexity´´ (The New York Times). Something Light: In 1950s London, professional dog photographer Louisa Datchett has decided it´s high time she snared herself a husband. Up until now, she´s been indiscriminately fond of men, who´ve taken shocking advantage of her good nature. At age thirty Louisa is ready for someone to take care of her and sets out on her romantic quest, in this New York Times bestseller. ´´Brisk, bright, sly, engaging . . . a pleasure to read.´´ -Chicago Tribune The Nutmeg Tree: Motherhood was never really free-spirited Julia Packett´s thing. Following the loss of her husband in World War I, Julia turned to her well-heeled in-laws to raise her daughter. Now twenty, Susan invites her mother to France for the summer to persuade her grandmother to allow her to marry. When Julia arrives, she quickly sees that her proper daughter is mismatched with a playboy. And when Susan´s distinguished legal guardian, Sir William Waring, shows up, romantic complications ensue. ´´Original, subtle, and consistently entertaining.´´ -Kirkus Reviews The Flowering Thorn: In 1929 London, socialite Lesley Frewen impulsively decides to adopt an orphaned boy. Moving to the tiny village of High Westover, Lesley finds herself challenged by a whole new way of life and changed by a young boy who begins to awaken her capacity to love. ´´To those who ´discovered´ Margery Sharp with The Nutmeg Tree, the reissue of this earlier novel . . . will be good news. The city-bred-country-won theme is handled with gay humor and enough of sentiment for general appeal.´´ -Kirkus Reviews The Innocents: As World War II separates a three-year-old, mentally challenged girl from her parents, a British spinster takes on the responsibility of raising her and the two grow closer. But when the war is over and the girl´s mother returns, Antoinette doesn´t want to be separated from the only person who´s ever really understood her. ´´Marvelously crafted . . . believable and heart-wrenching . . . [Sharp] is an incredibly perceptive writer.´´ -The Literary Sisters
