Review of DOWNTOWN DEBUTANTE by Kara Lennox (see her website)
Harlequin American #1081, September, 2005
Sneaky con-man Marvin Carter had taken Brenna Thompson for a ride--and stolen the gems she'd planned on using for the jewelry that would make her name. But the blondes are after Marvin, and this time they have 'help' in the person of sexy FBI agent Heath Parker. Heath makes Brenna's heart beat fast, but there's something about the way he listens to her stories about Marvin that tells her he isn't buying everything. Surely, though, he doesn't think she could be involved?
Heath Parker knows Marvin Carter is a bad egg, but the FBI doesn't send out its agents to search for a low-life con-man with a thing for blondes. What it does send out its agents for is to recover stolen paintings worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars. And paintings like that aren't in Carter's league. Heath needs to watch out, though, because his chief suspect, spunky Brenna Thompson, is working his way into his heart.
Heath uses the investigation of Marvin to work his way into Brenna's confidence, not knowing he might just work his way into her bed as well. The more he learns about the spitfire blonde, the harder he finds it to believe that she would really have stolen her parents' paintings. Still, the evidence seems unshakable and Heath has been burned before.
Author Kara Lennox (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews by Kara Lennox) delivers another funny and sexy installment in her 'Blond Justice' series. Marvin can run, but he can't hide with the three intrepid blondes after him. Unfortunately for the women, it turns out that the men they count on for support and backup need a fair amount of training before they can really be of much assistance. Then again, that is half the fun.
