"A story worthy of any prime-time sitcom"

Life, and hunky cop Cole Fischer, are passing Haley Yates by. The daughter of an Ohio police chief, Haley is the only one in her family not to have a successful career in law enforcement. An eye injury she received while in training in the police academy changed all that.

Her only option: work as an administrative secretary in the Fort Lauderdale, FL police department. Where, of course, hunky cop Cole Fischer works but has yet to notice mousey, bespectacled, shapeless, cookie-baking, prim and proper Miss Haley Yates.

The annual policeman's Halloween party presents Haley with the first opportunity to become her alter-ego: Catwoman, from 'Batman' comics' fame. Slinkily clad, she snares Cole's interest but refuses to unmask or reveal her identity. When shortly after leaving the party, she hears an 'officer in distress' call on the police radio in her car, she races to the scene-- still in costume-- and using her police academy skills, saves Cole's life. Then promptly- - and wisely-- disappears.

So starts the dual life of Haley Yates, mild mannered secretary by day, super hero by night. And in Cole Fischer's mind, super seductress.

Emboldened by Cole's interest in Catwoman-Haley, Secretary- Haley begins to act less reserved towards him. A mutual attraction blossoms ... but wait! Which woman does Cole really love?

In answering that question, author Elaine Hopper takes the reader on a fast, funny, giggle-filled ride replete with misdirection and comic set-ups that are worthy of any prime- time sitcom. PURRFECT JUSTICE is the purrfect beach read, or waiting for the kids at soccer practice read: short, pithy, funny and fluffy, a definite 'feel good' book. Paranormal romance fans may find an appeal in the 'super hero come to life' fantasy aspect of the novel, as Haley moves in and out-- and even comes to be jealous of!-- her Catwoman persona.

This much I will guarantee if you read Hopper's PURRFECT JUSTICE: you will never, ever be able to look at cookie dough without thinking of the love scene where Haley sensually spreads cookie dough all over Cole's... well, just read the book.
