"Tori Carrington's latest is an edgy, erotic fantasy nicely balanced by solid conflict and strongly-drawn characters." Romantic Times BOOKclub -- 4/03

From the Author

Dear Reader,

The edge. That's where we like to take our stories and our characters. But in our contribution to The Bad Girls Club miniseries, we were given the opportunity to really cut loose and go farther than we ever had before. Only not even we could have imagined the sexy game of cat-and-mouse our characters Nicole Bennett (the thief in PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS) and Alex Cassavetis had in mind...

In RED-HOT & RECKLESS, sexy, expert thief Nicole Bennett has always managed to stay one step ahead of the law, mostly because she targets other thieves, the last people who will call in the authorities. But she hadn't counted on seductive insurance investigator Alex Cassavetis stealing something from her. Namely her heart….

We hope you enjoy Nic and Alex's sizzling journey to the edge and beyond. We'd love to hear what you think. Write to us at P.O.

Wishing you love, romance and hot, steamy reading,

Lori & Tony Karayianni aka Tori Carrington

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bad girls never apologize for their wild antics either in bed or out. Nicole Bennett carries her bad girl reputation to the extreme, however, with her career as a professional jewel thief. Her weakness for tall, sexy men and for Tiffany jewelry has gotten her into several scrapes over the years; nevertheless, she has never regretted her perchance for either. But someone has been following her, and Nicole has best watch or trouble will catch up to her.
Insurance investigator Alex Cassevetis has suspected that Nicole lifts other thieves' goods since Christine Bowman was caught stealing millions of dollars in uncut diamonds. While Christine was convicted, the diamonds disappeared. Now Alex intends to persuade Nicole to help him apprehend "Dark Man," a thief turned serial killer. But working with Nicole proves disconcerting when he knows there can be no future for their electric attraction.
RED HOT & RECKLESS is the best Tori Carrington offering yet! Carrington takes "bad girl" to an all-new level, with a heroine who never apologizes for her unorthodox career. Wild, tempting and daring, Nicole takes what she wants and lives as a truly free spirit. Overly responsible Alex finds that wildness incredibly alluring, but he is also an irresistibly sexy hero. Indeed, readers will wonder how much of his Greek mystique is inspirited from the male side of the fabulous writing duo of Lori and Tony Karayianni. And perhaps it is the dynamic of a male/female writing team that allows both hero and heroine to consistently sparkle in all of their novels, and most especially in the sizzling RED HOT & RECKLESS. Moreover, the strong heroines in "The Bad Girls Club" series will certainly have readers clamoring for more bad girl stories. RED HOT & RECKLESS earns the WordWeaving Award for Excellence.

Nicole is like Catwoman, a sexy expert thief. And a very seductive one at that. It's not at all something I expected from a Harlequin book.

The story can appeal to men as well as Women. The plot is surprisingly comic booky, but the Sex scenes are steamy and don't hold back either.

I can't say much else not already said, I highly recommend it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nicole Bennett relishes life as a thief even though she has faced some nasty capers over the years. However, no one has tailed her quite like obstinate insurance investigator Alex Cassevetis though she would not mind a piece of his tail. Her plan is simply to toy with her pursuer until she catches him in her boudoir and satiates herself by making love with him.
Alex struggles to control his libido because everyone time he thinks of Nicole, he becomes aroused. However he needs her outside the bedroom because she is his only lead to another thief, the murderous Dark Man. His plan is to get his fill of her in the boudoir, but to use her thieving skills to help him catch a deadly thief. Neither one expected love to enter their bait and bed game.
The final book of the Bad Girls trilogy (see WICKED AND WILLING BY Leslie Kelly and BRAZEN AND BURNING by Julie Elizabeth Leto) is RED HOT AND RECKLESS as team Carrington provides an erotic romantic suspense thriller. The story line is loaded with action, much of it outside the boudoir, but there is enough under the covers to satiate those readers who appreciate the heat up high. Nicole is an intriguing character, who prefers stealing as her prime asset accumulation technique while Alex is not quite as straight laced as he first appears. Yet with all the sex-driven tension, what makes this a steamy triumph is the taut subplot focused on capturing the Dark Man combined with the blazing relationship tale. Fans receive a powerful action packed sexy drama.
