Liz Adams, owner of the Daily Grind coffee shop, cannot but help notice her repeat hunk of a customer, who she dreams about in her muses. Her friend Mona Owen, proprietor of the Last Word bookstore, informs her that the best sleuth in town is “bad boy” Steve Wilde, the customer haunting her fantasies. Liz is so concerned about the well being of her cousin Valerie who seems to have vanished following a trip with a stranger, she turns to Steve for help.
Steve believe that he must have a guardian angel looking out for him because he has become a caffeine freak just to see Liz, the focus of his fantasies. Steve agrees to take the case if Liz assists him. She goes undercover as a phone sex operator at the Ultimate Fantasy to obtain information on the sleazy boyfriend. As they work together, Liz and Steve feel that love is all around them.
The sequel to the novella in I BRAKE FOR BAD BOYS continues the chronicles of the Wilde Bunch. Fans will appreciate the delightful duo as each of the protagonists concludes that the other makes their heart sings. WILDE THING is steamy, sexy and suspenseful as Janelle Denison provides a wonderful tale in which the intrigue takes a back seat to the growing love of the lead couple.
