Romances by two topnotch authors are paired in this promo title: Shayne's Two Hearts and Pappano's A Little Bit Dangerous. When veteran cop Jack McCain blows his street cover to save a man from being mugged, he has no idea that he is about to become part of a down-to-earth tycoon's plan to rescue his individualistic daughter from her mother's matrimonial machinations. Jack is just the type of "real man" Harry Phelps wants his Gracie to date, and when he notices the instant attraction between the two the first time they meet, he is more determined than ever to make sure it happens. An athlete struggling to be a "lady," a hero pretending to be something he's not, and a lively, humorous style add zing to Shayne's classic plot, which neatly combines deception with romance and makes it all come out right. Shayne (Infinity) is a veteran writer of contemporary, fantasy, and paranormal romance and lives near Syracuse, NY. Sheltered school teacher Mary Katherine Monroe would do just about anything for her lovable scoundrel granddad, even get a summer job as a cocktail waitress on a riverboat casino so that she can gather information that might clear his name of an old accusation. But when the assistant head of security turns out to be none other than the man who abruptly left her eight years earlierDwith no explanationDher job becomes a lot more romantic but infinitely more risky. A magnetic hero with a dangerous secret, a gentle, na ve heroine on a mission, and a crime-ridden subplot in glitzy, tawdry setting with a Mardi Gras flair come together in a compelling, sensual story that explores trust, truth, and the importance of both to love. Pappano (Rogue's Reform) is a popular writer of romantic suspense and contemporaries who lives in Oklahoma.
