Kiss and Tell

Seducing Mr. Right
by Cherry Adair
(Harl. Tempt. #833, $3.99, PG-13) ISBN # 0-373-25933-6
Cherry Adair's latest release is a sexy and delightful romp that satisfies from start to finish. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this one.

Catherine Harris has been in love with Luke Van Buren since she was a teenager. Determined to snag the elusive bachelor once and for all, she concocts a plan aimed at getting the commitment-phobic Luke to see her as a sexy, available woman. She tells Luke that she wants to get married, and as her friend, she'd like him to help her find Mr. Right.

Luke, meanwhile, doesn't think any man is worthy of Cat, himself included. Nevertheless, he agrees to help her despite the jealousy that plagues him. It doesn't take long, however, for Luke to realize that the only Mr. Right he wants in Cat's life is himself.

The characters in Seducing Mr. Right are incredibly charming, especially the protagonists. Catherine is a worthy heroine you can't help but love. She's funny, spunky, independent, but harbors enough self-doubt and normalcy to come across as a down-to-earth, regular woman. Luke is your typical good-looking, charming, noncommittal bachelor, but he's also a complex character who's a decent man at heart. Like Cat he has vulnerabilities that allow him to be human enough to adore and watching him succumb to his heroine makes for a fun read.

The secondary characters, and one in particular, are just as wonderful. By introducing the handsome, virile bachelor Nick into the story and making him an integral part of the plot, Adair has set herself up a sequel destined to be anticipated by her readers. Seducing Mr. Right is the first Cherry Adair book I've read, but it won't be my last. I've just got to find out what woman will eventually snag that rascally Nick.
