Listeners back for a third round of the bestselling
Cocktail series will enjoy a madcap romantic comedy about bodice ripping and
chest heaving, fiery passion and love everlasting. Plus a dash of paperwork filing
and horseshi—wait, what?
By day, Viv Franklin is a tough-as-nails software
engineer who designs programs and loves hospital corners. By night, Vivian’s a
secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a
cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her
feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice.
When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a
beautiful old home in Mendocino, California, from a long-forgotten aunt, she
moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great,
romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t
There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins—because
Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian,
Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches
compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.
Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that
delights a swooning Viv/Vivian. Also within this book is an answer to the
question of the ages: why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?

“Clayton shows off her trademark humor and zany characters in the third installment of her Cocktail series. Giggles and lustful leers follow the heroine when she attempts to renovate a historical house while living out her romance novel fantasies with not one, but two local men. Sizzling chemistry, infectious dialogue and the heroine’s overactive imagination will leave readers crying with laughter as she discovers that sometimes what you see isn’t what you get.”
