He’s got a sweet romantic side and a secret life. When his bodice ripping romance books start to sell, he’s gonna be able to retire—in style. Holy mother of God! He wakes one morning to find that his latest cheesy book, which had only sold a couple of hundred copies, is a million dollar best seller! He can’t believe his eyes and reboots his computer. Sweet Mary! Another 50,000 copies sold in the time it took to log back on! But, like his Desiree Robb pen name, things aren’t always what they seem. One of the big 6 publishing houses contacts him. They want to promote Desiree with guest appearances, the whole nine yards! They’re offering a gazillion dollars! He needs a woman to play Desiree Robb. He knows who he wants. The woman he’s secretly admired from afar, his diamond in the rough, Marie his feisty car mechanic. Although she signs up for a piece of the action, she doesn’t count on falling in love with him. The mob becomes very interested in Desiree Robb. They were running a credit card scam while publishing a book even worse than Desiree’s. It’s called Desire Robbed and was sure to become a best seller overnight. Except their computer programmer was tired. Words get mixed up. It all fuses into a laugh-out-loud cluster chaos as tangled as a New York City rush hour.
