Review of OUT OF TOWN BRIDE by Kara Lennox (see her website)
Harlequin American #1093, December, 2005
Marvin (the ratfink) Carter had a thing for blondes. He chased them, wooed them, got engaged to them, then took them for everything they were worth. But three blondes decided to fight back. Socialite Sonya Patterson was the first of Marvin's conquests, and she's determined to be the one to bring him to justice. But her mother's sudden illness puts her revenge plans on temporary hold. Warned by the doctor that anything that upsets her mother could be dangerous, and that her upcoming wedding is the one thing that seems to keep her mother connected, Sonya goes through the motions of planning a wedding--to a man she knows is a heel.
The man who isn't a heel, sexy bodyguard John-Michael McPhee. Sonya had a crush on her bodyguard since she was young (her father's death at the hands of kidnappers made her mother extremely protective), but John-Michael rejected her the time she threw herself at him. She intends to be over the crush, but having John-Michael tag along while she plans a wedding that would be a nightmare makes her dream of a wedding that would be a dream.
When Marvin hears of the wedding plans, and tries to come back onto the scene, apparently believing that Sonya didn't catch on to his embezzlement, Sonya changes her plan--she'll go forward with the wedding and trap Marvin once and for all.
Author Kara Lennox (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Lennox) concludes her fun 'Blond Justice' series with OUT OF TOWN BRIDE. The sexual tension between Sonya and John-Michael sizzles, and Lennox continues the strong relationship between the three blond women--first victims, but now stronger and united through their shared struggles. The entire series is a wonderful blend of laughter, adventure, and sensuality. If you haven't discovered the Blond Justice series yet, you're in for a treat. OUT OF TOWN BRIDE is a winner.
