    They first met at the wedding of his brother, but neither Charity Wilde nor Mike Flynn felt any sparks. Both went on with their lives with Charity returning to Vegas in her efforts to become a headline showgirl and Mike to run his ranch.

    They meet again when Charity returns to Wyoming on a family visit at the Remington Ranch. This time an attraction engulfs both of them, but neither desires the unwanted feelings. Mike remains racked with guilt over his deceased wife and his caring for Charity increases his feelings of inadequacy. Charity's situation is a bit simpler as she does not want to give up her dream of stardom. Not even Cupid could hope to bring this couple together.

    SOMETHING WILD is a sequel to the fantastic WIFE FOR A DAY. Though the story line is as amusing as the latter novel, it lacks the social teeth of the first book. The tale is fun, engaging the reader through the two obstinate lead characters who want love and their dreams, but neither knows how to grab and hold onto the feelings. Patti Berg is quickly becoming a sure shot to provide strong entertainment for romance readers.
