According to Maggie Kelly's Law 1, just when things seem to be settling down, the other shoe drops...with a vengeance. And in this case, it's more like a Regency-era riding boot belonging to Alexandre Blake, Viscount Saint just, hero of the bestsellers Maggie writes. When he defied all laws of time and space by walking out of Maggie's dreams and into her living room, she figured there was a way to get him back home to the corner of her fevered imagination from which he'd escaped. She was wrong. Then, although the members of WAR - We Are Romance, the country's largest romance writers' group - kicked Maggie out of their club, she still got an invitation to their Manhattan conference. How Alex convinced her to go - and take him along - is another story. But Maggie just knew it would be a bad thing. Bad for her blood pressure...and very bad for her budding flirtation with NYPD Lieutenant Steve Wendell. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What is particularly fun about this installment is that the reader is able to enter the "hallowed halls" of publishing - WAR.
Saint Just wants to earn his own money, Maggie wants her old life back (?) and Sterling is as usual his sweet self.
This series is fun to read - and the characters become more real as they go.
As usual, Kasey Michaels delivers an entertaining and delicious outing.

As this book opens we find that Alex, aka Viscount Saint Just, and Sterling are becoming more accustomed to living in the twentyfirst century. Alex is mainly occupied with finding a suitable means of acquiring money. An honorable man does not live on a woman's money, nor does a gentleman live by the sweat of his brow. When Maggie receives a brochure announcing this year's WAR conference, Alex is intrigued both by the name (WAR stands for We Are Romance) and by the events. More specifically, he is intrigued by the cover model contest which offers a prize of ten thousand dollars and a contract. Never one to hesitate, he signs Maggie up for the conference, himself and Mare for the contest, and he reserves a suite of rooms for them all, including Sterling. Maggie is not thrilled. She has avoided this conference for years.
The conference seems to be targeted by a prankster. The first prank is pretty harmless but more quickly follow , each becoming more costly and more dangerous than the last. And then there is a murder.
I loved the book. The mystery is well-plotted. There is a plethora of suspects and motives. The main characters are vividly fleshed out and real. They are smart, funny, and grumpy. Well, Alex is smart, Sterling is funny, and Maggie can be really grumpy if she does not get her cigarettes. The supporting cast is also delightful. Several are recurring but there are many new characters that add to the mystery and fun. Yes, there is plenty of fun, suspense, and a hint of romance.
I highly recommend this book. You are in for a rollicking good time. Buy the book. You won't be dissappointed
