My Front Page Scandal-Carrie Alexander

My Front Page Scandal
Carrie Alexander
Harlequin Blaze, Oct 2007, $4.99

The Martinis & Bikinis Club members have been challenging one another to accept a Martini Dare, which risks humiliation if you do and worse if you don’t. Prim and proper thirty years old Bostonian window designer Brooke Winfield joins the women's club out of boredom.

While working on a window design, Brooke tries on a scanty Gualtier dress that covers nothing as it was intended to be worn with other garb. At about the same time reckless Red Sox World Series hero (up until recently that would be an oxymoron) David Carerra crashes his bike. She comes to his rescue and he becomes her Martini Dare. As they fall in love, they scandalize her conservative blue bloods, purist Red Sox fans, and New Englanders who follow the Glove.

The latest Martini Dares tale (see MY SECRET LIFE by Lori Wilde), MY FRONT PAGE SCANDAL is an amusing lighthearted romantic romp. The lead couple seems like opposites at least on the surface as she is Boston Brahmin and he is red clay Georgia. Their antics encouraged by her Martini Dare “teammates” scandalize much of the city to the joy of Carrie Alexander’s fans.
