A bad boy is about to find out just how naughty a good girl can be.
After eight long years of pretending a horrible one-night stand hadn’t happened and wondering if it had been her fault, Charity Harris has finally coaxed handsome bad boy and lifelong friend, Gabriel Bettencourt, back into her bed. It’s not just good, it’s fanfreakingtastic! Trouble is, he’s persisting with his story about not wanting a relationship and not being good enough for her even as their friendship blooms into something looking a lot like love.
Gabriel has ached to make Charity his for years, and finally having her in his bed, not just enduring but enjoying his darker urges is more than he’d ever imagined it could be. Despite what she says, he knows she deserves candlelight and roses, not candle wax and ropes. He’ll enjoy her while he can and let go when she finds the right man.
Charity knows Gabriel’s game and she’s not having any of it. A man can like it rough in bed and still be good and kind. He’s exactly the kind of man she wants to marry and she will. She loves him and she knows he loves her and she’s not taking no for an answer.
So when he runs off “to think” just after Christmas, it’s up to her to let him know that good girls can like it dark and rough and bad boys can be good men.
(also this week are Jaci Burton’s Unraveled – like Sweet Charity, Unraveled picks up after her 07 holiday story, Unwrapped! And Lorelei James’ Mistress Christmas and D. McEntyre’s Midnight Rose – it’s a very good day at Samhain!)

I truly adored Sweet Charity 😀 I soaked in the book super fast and wished the book never ended… It was a sweet treat and at times a bit emotional. Charity and Gabe had such chemistry, it lept at me and kept me glued…I have to ask, will we see more stories regarding this family in the future?

April – thanks so much! Yay, you liked it!! I would definitely love to get back to Davis and visit with some of the family members we’ve met in To Do List and Sweet Charity.
