If you've ever had a history with someone of the opposite sex and caught yourself wondering, "what if." in the back of your mind, then boy are you in for some spicy ammo. In The Bachelor's Dare by Shirley Jump, the wonderful sequel to The Virgin's Proposal, Katie Dole's older brother Mark asks that very question, and the possibilities rock his already unstable world.
Hers too. Claire Richards wasn't looking for a relationship, friendship or any other "ship" when she climbed on board the RV for the "Survive and Drive" competition. She was on a mission, and had no idea that her stay on a stationary vehicle would be carrying her into uncharted territory. She was confident and secure in her knowledge of Mark. After twenty years she was sure that she knew what made him tick, and delighted in the fact that she could use that information to her advantage. But will he live up to her expectations? Who needs reality television when The Bachelor's Dare is available? Shirley Jump will have you handing over the remote willingly.
The Bachelor's Dare is full of humor, heart, several surprises, and did I mention chemistry? What a smorgasbord! As the story unfolds, Shirley Jump's cast of characters morph before your very eyes; obstacles get blown right to bits, and tension builds so slow and hot-- that you'd swear you could see the pages smoldering. Get ready to scorch your fingers as you blaze through this page turner.
The Bachelor's Dare, Ms. Jump's second book in the series is every bit as good as her first, and makes you want to beg her for just a hint at Luke's story, Mark's twin. Thus far Mercy, Indiana has been a very good spot for the Dole family, despite banana suits and mobile living accommodations. Heaven only knows what Shirley Jump has in store for us in her third book The Daddy's Promise, due to be released in June 2004. I can't wait, as the late Marvin Gaye sang, "Mercy, mercy, me!"
