Minneapolis Museum of Art curator Cassie Hill has sworn off men after her cheating husband of five years, Jay Sibley III, leaves her for a shallow bimbo with cash. Her distaste for human males except dead artists will change soon as her boss Arthur Northrup hires art bounty hunter Bobby Serre to locate a missing Rubens. Bobby immediately leaves Budapest for Minneapolis.
Bobby evaluates the crime scene and begins checking into each member of the staff and Arthur's latest spouse. As Bobby makes inquires he and Cassie hit it off. When his ex Jessica hears rumors that he is falling in love, she rushes to the Twin Cities and pulls off a ploy to get Cassie out of town because in her mind Bobby is at her beck and call. As Bobby works the case, Jessica also persuades Cassie that her new love is a womanizer just like Jay.
HOT LEGS is a fast-paced heated romance in which limousines, showers, and anything else is fair grounds for some sexual activity. The story line is action-packed and not just lips locking scenes as Bobby works the art theft case. Bobby is a delightful protagonist who comes across as a not fully boiled sleuth while Cassie is an intelligent delightful individual.
