The first story, Wicked Widow, is the best of the three. It has a good plot and sexy and fun characters. It does not have as many erotic scenes as most stories in this series of anthologies, but the writing makes up for it in this case. P.I. Hannah "Nan" Harrington-Scott is a former wild child debutante on a stake out when she discovers she isn't the only one interested in a certain mega crook billionaire. Nan is going to have to beat mysterious and sexy Damon Connelly to the chase. Or, should she team up with him? Her head says stay away, but her body remembers the fun they had frisking each other for weapons.
I had a hard time getting through Man with a Past. The erotic scenes and plot were mediocre. Geena Cole has never quite forgotten her childhood sweetheart Cabot Vendermeer, III. Unfortunately, Cab left ten years ago under the burden of a murder charge. Geena knows Cab could never had committed the murder, but he left before she could prove otherwise. Now, Cab is back and asking for her to help him again. Can they solve the murder? And most importantly, will they have a future together?
Love Bites is a decent story, but the mystery is not as well written as Wicked Widow. It was not that hard to figure out who the killer was. I like the characters, and there were some good erotic scenes. The story does satisfy, but not with a big bang. Delia use to be the baddest of the bad, but a horrible marriage to a jerk has left her doubting herself and her abilities. Since her divorce, Delia has made-over her image to try to bolster her self-esteem, but she has yet to put herself to the test. On her first big case for Women Tek, she tails Ben Michaelson, playboy millionaire. The client thinks he killed her sister, but has no proof. Delia knows she is not supposed to make contact with Ben, but she can't help herself from getting closer to him. Ben brings out the best, or should I say the baddest in her. Will Delia release her inner bad girl and show Ben what he has been missing by going out with the same-old, same-old gold diggers? Has Delia bit off more than she can chew by y falling for a possible murderer?
Overall, I enjoyed this book, but I would not read it again. Gemma Bruce has potential, but I would not buy something by this author, unless I read a little of it first.
"Man with a Past". A decade ago teen Geena Cole helped Cabot Vandermeer III escape town before he is arrested as a killer. He has come back with a need to prove his innocence and a greater desire to kiss the neighbor who helped him flee. Cab hires private eye Geena to find proof that he is not a murderer though his real motive is winning Geena.
"Love Bites". Delia Petrocelli hates her life as a boring socialite married to a wealthy loser. Geena assigns her to investigate whether Ben Michaelson killed his last lover as the victim's sister insists. As she stirs her mark's juices, she falls in love with him, but the evidence seems to point towards his guilt, which could mean he might kill his next paramour, her.
These three former bad girls turn wicked women investigative romances are fun to follow because the female stars and the men they nab make for a fun fine time for the audience. It will not take a sleuth to know that Gemma Bruce has provided a fabulous who-done-it anthology.
s well that ends well. Would I recommend this page-turner? And how! Especially if you like gutsy, sexy women who have spurned the idle life of the rich in order to do something worthwhile. My kind of gals. I'm looking forward to Bruce's next book.
