Minneapolis Museum of Art curator Cassie Hill has sworn
off men following her cheating husband of five years Jay
Sibley III leaving her for a shallow bimbo with cash. Her
distaste for anything male except dead artists will change
soon as her boss Arthur Northrup hires art bounty hunter
Bobby Serre to locate a missing Rubens. Bobby immediately
leaves Budapest for Minneapolis.
Bobby evaluates the crime scene and begins checking into
each member of the staff and Arthur's latest spouse, three
if he has an up to date scorecard unlike Bobby who vowed
never again after one. As Bobby makes inquires he and
Cassie hit it off. When his ex Jessica hears rumors that
he is falling in love, she rushes to the Twin Cities and
pulls off a ploy to get Cassie out of town because in her
mind Bobby is at her beck and call. As Bobby works the
case, Jessica also persuades Cassie that her new love is a
womanizer just like Jay.
HOT LEGS is a fast-paced heated romance in which
limousines, showers, and anything else is fair grounds for
some sexual activity. The story line is action-packed and
not just lips locking scenes as Bobby works the art theft
case. Bobby is a delightful protagonist who comes across
as a not fully boiled sleuth while Cassie is an
intelligent delightful individual. The lead couples'
former spouses have little, if any, redeeming qualities
yet fans of torrid private investigator romances will
enjoy this art of love tale.
