Jaine Bright and three close friends share dinner one night and during casual conversation, create a list of qualifications for Mr Perfect--some logical, some hilariously funny, some racy. Within days, their tongue-in-cheek wish list of attributes for the perfect man has been leaked to the press and the resultant publicity is overwhelming. Coworkers, TV crews and reporters barrage the quartet with comments and criticism.
As if Jaine doesn't have enough to cope with, she has a new neighbour who she suspects is a criminal. She's relieved to learn that her neighbour is really an undercover cop, but she's still wary--because smart, sexy Sam Donovan handles her sharp witticisms with easy humour, and Jaine suspects that he may threaten her heart. What Jaine doesn't know is that she's about to need Sam desperately for something other than romance because her circle of friends is in big trouble. Unfortunately, that list of qualifications for Mr Perfect has touched off a madman's rage. All of their lives are threatened and some of them are going to die, maybe all of them, if Sam can't stop the unknown killer.
Mr Perfect brings to readers the quintessential Linda Howard hero, whose straightforward, "me Tarzan, you Jane" attitude plays well with a smart, witty heroine. The rapid-fire dialogue between the two is downright hilarious at times, even when the two are about to steam up the windows and burn up the sheets. It's difficult to balance this kind of humour and sensuality with edgy suspense, but Howard manages it with aplomb. If you enjoyed Heart of Fire and Dream Man, you're going to love this latest novel. It's drop-dead wonderful. --Lois Faye Dyer, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Four ladies work at a company dominated by men, and so every Friday night after work they meet for supper and girl-talk. This particular Friday, men - or rather the lack of Good Men - leads the four into creating a list of their idea man.
Marcia is a forty-something with three failed marriages behind her. She loves men, their company and sex, so is currently living with an out of work Brick. TJ, thirty-something, is married to the childhood sweetheart who is likely having an affair. She wants a child, but he refuses. Beautiful Luna, twenty-something is head over heels in love with a heel, a NFL
quarterback who likes parties and women too much. And razor-shape mind and tongued Jaine, thirty-something, and a veteran of three failed engagements.
So over a few drinks, they come up with a list of all the qualities of the perfect man, like faithfulness, honesty and something that says size DOES matter!! Naturally, later a tipsy Marcie shows another woman at work The List, and suddenly it is on the bulletin board, going through emails, and then the news local and national are picking up it.
And the men around these ladies are not happy campers. One man in particular is very upset.
Janie is furious with Marcie, but has other things in her life to worry about. She just bought a new house, her mother and father are away on a vacation of a lifetime - her mother leaving precious BooBoo kitty and her father his precious Shelby (car for all you non babyboomers). BooBoo kitty is shredding the couch cushions, her sister Shelly is mad because Mum left Jaine the cat, and her brother David is mad at her because Dad left the Ford Cobra with little sister!!Read more ›
Jaine is dynamite and really, really likeable. Sam is so hot he's off the charts and their chemistry is sexy, sweet and smoking hot.
The murder mystery stayed enthralling right to the very end.

Not sure what all the excitment was about. Not much story and the romance was just talk talk and more talk until half way through the book and then sex for every few min after! Read morePublished 25 days ago by Jennifer Jim
Completely unbelievable. I cannot understand the five star reviews. Does Linda Howard write books for young adults?
