Katie Collins hides her beautiful body beneath the guise of a prim and proper lady because she wants no trouble with the spouse of her boss Ivan Rasmussin. When the computer game CEO offers Katie a chance to make one hundred thousand dollars, she jumps at the opportunity because she needs money to reunite with her three siblings, each from a different father. Ivan wants Katie to find a husband who passes his criteria for his shy obese daughter Wilhelmina.
Ivan bribes security expert Michael Wingate to serve as bodyguard to Wilhelmina while he vacations overseas and to conduct background checks into the men that Katie selects. Michael reluctantly agrees because he expects to take over security for Ivan's firm if he holds up his end of the bargain.
When Katie tells Wilhelmina of a fairy tale in which the princess finds true love in Texas, the heiress eludes her two watchdogs and journeys to the Lone Star State. As Katie and Michael follow, they fall in love even as Wilhelmina meets her prince, but will these two deserving couples find permanent happiness with one another?
SOME GIRLS DO is an enjoyable contemporary romance starring several delightful characters. The story line focuses on two lonely women who find love when neither expected anything. The support cast augments how deep the audience sees inside Wilhelmina and Katie. Though the males in her father's circle are too nasty for consideration, fans can bank on this author providing a wonderful tale of love.
