"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 vengeance.

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.

After several years down on her luck, Lisa Neal has finally landed a great opportunity -- and the chance to jump-start her lackluster career. Her only problem? She lied to get the job. And now she has to turn to the one person who can help ... the ex-fiancÚ she walked out on six years ago.

Kenneth Harper died inside the day that love-of-his life Lisa walked out on him. But after six years, a lot has changed. He's no longer the small-town, innocent guy transplanted to the city with illusions of finding love. Now he's a player in the hip Los Angeles restaurant scene. And when the ex-love-of-his-life comes begging for help, he's happy to oblige. For a price, that is . . .
