Gaming the System

(The second book in the Goody's Goodies series)
A novel by

As the manager of Las Vegas's premiere adult toy store, Kai Tyler changes her hair color, nail color, and eye color the way some people change socks. In fact, she's even changed her name. She owes no one, depends on no one, and stopped believing in happily ever after before she reached the age of ten. All she really wants out of life is a few good gadgets and the occasional day of pampering.

Which is exactly why Luke Clarke asks her to be his date at his sister's wedding. Luke loves his family, but he has no desire to fulfill his parents' dream by getting married and going into politics. So when he's invited to his sister's weeklong wedding gala, he thinks Kai will be the perfect foil. Having a date will squelch his mother's matchmaking attempts and Kai's outrageous appearance might - just might - convince his family once and for all that he'll never have a career in politics.

But as stress, desire, and close quarters eat away at the masks both Luke and Kai wear, their easy arrangement begins to transform into something neither expected. Will they cling to the stable roles of the past, or bet on an uncertain future together?

About the Author:

Laura K. Curtis has always done everything backward. As a child, she was extremely serious, so now that she's chronologically an adult, she feels perfectly justified in acting the fool. She started teaching at age fifteen, then decided to go back to school herself at thirty. And she wrote her first book in first grade. It was released in (notebook) paperback to rave reviews, and she's been trying to achieve the same level of acclaim ever since. She lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband and a pack of wild Irish terriers, which has taught her how easily love can coexist with the desire to kill.
