"A fiery love story"
Five years ago, though she loved her fiancÚ restaurateur
Ken Harper, Lisa Neal deserted him for a chance for fame
and fortune in the movies. A heartbroken Ken cannot
believe the only woman for him ended their relationship on
the same night he planned to ask her for the deeper
commitment of marriage.
Now Lisa's career has tanked. Her chances for career
resurrection are slim and none. Her only hope for a
comeback resides with Ken. Willing to eat crow and beg,
Lisa asks Ken to help her. He willingly agrees on one
condition that she enters his bed for a night of passionate
Though a November book, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL blazes more like
a heated Southern California summer day due to the sexual
hostility between the lead characters. The story line
never loses its sweltering pace even though Ken has clear
reasons for hating his beloved. However, what makes this
amazing is that Julie Kenner actually makes Lisa into a
sympathetic individual showing how much talent this author
has in writing a fiery love story that readers care what
happens to the stars.
