"A fun second chance at love romance"
After assigning her the Mogul Ryders marketing campaign,
her Westwood Marketing boss Ines Cordova bets Tessa O'Neal
that she cannot stay out of Mitch Ryder's bed for a week.
Ines knows it is a sure bet because she has heard enough
times how Tessa measures all males against her yardstick,
Mitch, her first love. No one including an ex-husband and
the nice Rob she just ended her engagement to has come
close to living up to Tessa's memory of Mitch though he
Tessa plans to do the job and escape Lake Placid, New York
with her soul and heart intact because she knows based on
what happened eight years ago that Mitch cannot commit.
Mitch anticipates sharing sex once they finish his business
requirement though he also plans to split as he did once
before. However, when he learns she intends to stay for
only a week with no sex, he elevates the game of love.
Readers will enjoy reading the heated TALL, DARK, AND
DARING, a fun second chance at love romance. The story
line emits heat through Mitch even as Tessa tries to avoid
being burned again. Though readers might not like Mitch's
cavalier approach to relationships, the audience will agree
that Joanne Rock paints a compelling realistic look at
modern day coupling.
