Miss Lonely Hearts(2009)
A novel by Charlene Teglia
Love, larceny, and lies. When is a love letter not a love letter? When it's mail fraud. Or in this case, female fraud. Jason Alexander is one angry Alaskan, and he's out to get his woman; the letter-writing Lolita who's running the Miss Lonely Hearts con game in his bailiwick. She's taking lonely Alaskans for a roller-coaster ride and cashing in on love. When she hits the patrons of his bar The Last Resort, the retired gambler takes it personally and goes out for justice. Cassandra Adams has just been dumped by ex-fianc number two. She's fed up with Romance Roulette and ready to trade her rosy daydreams for hardheaded practicality. The logical solution? She's going to search the classifieds for the mail-order marrying man she wants. She thinks she's found him in Jason, alias Alex Sanders. He thinks he's hooked Miss Lonely Hearts. And the regulars at The Last Resort think it's high time Jason got married, so they're not about to clarify matters when they discover his mistake. Together Jason and Cassandra will have to cut their way through the tangle of love, larceny and lies to unmask Miss Lonely Hearts and find a happy ending that's a sure bet. WARNING: This book contains hot, explicit sex between two people explained in graphic language.
