"even good girls can be bad sometimes...with the right bad boy"

Charity Harris and Gabriel Bettencourt have been friends since high school. Charity has always had a thing for Gabriel and him for her if you were to ask him. So what happened to change that? Eight years ago they tried to move from friends to lovers and things didn't work, or so Charity thinks. She left for collage and Gabriel took over working on his father's dairy farm. They have reformed the friendship but Charity wants more. She also wants answers. Will she get them and will they be the ones she wants?

Gabriel has wanted Charity for years. The night eight years ago showed him just what type of woman she was. She is a lady that should be treated gently. He on the other hand wants a girl that can handle it rough. He knows if he does what he would love to do with Charity he may scare her off for good. So they are friends. Then why does he still want her so badly. Maybe Charity is his type of woman after all. Will they be able to find the love they both want? Can Charity show him that even good girls like things dark and rough, and bad boys can be good men?

Lauren Dane brings her characters to life in Sweet Charity. She shows the lives of Gabriel and Charity to her readers as if they are part of the book themselves and watching two people they know. She shows that not all bad boys are bad, and not all good girls are as sweet and innocent as the bad boys think. Lauren touches on the BDSM lifestyle and shows that blindfolds, floggers and crops can spice up life in the bedroom, and out.

A bad boy is about to find out just how naughty a good girl can be.

After eight long years of pretending a horrible one-night stand hadnít happened and wondering if it had been her fault, Charity Harris has finally coaxed handsome bad boy and lifelong friend, Gabriel Bettencourt, back into her bed. Itís not just good, itís fanfreakingtastic! Trouble is, heís persisting with his story about not wanting a relationship and not being good enough for her even as their friendship blooms into something looking a lot like love.

Gabriel has ached to make Charity his for years, and finally having her in his bed, not just enduring but enjoying his darker urges is more than heíd ever imagined it could be. Despite what she says, he knows she deserves candlelight and roses, not candle wax and ropes. Heíll enjoy her while he can and let go when she finds the right man.

Charity knows Gabrielís game and sheís not having any of it. A man can like it rough in bed and still be good and kind. Heís exactly the kind of man she wants to marry and she will. She loves him and she knows he loves her and sheís not taking no for an answer.

So when he runs off ďto thinkĒ just after Christmas, itís up to her to let him know that good girls can like it dark and rough and bad boys can be good men.

Warning: Bad boys and their toys and the sweet girls who love them. Naughty sexiní, the appearance of floggers, blindfolds and a crop. The occasional bad word.
