More Romance Novel Crime

Riding Wild by Jaci BurtonTo make James happy, here’s another book illustrating the crime that IS romance novels.  Today we’re looking at Jaci Burton’s Riding Wild.  Just look at it – with a name like that – it just screams crime Crime CRIME!

Throw in the motorcycle and, well you see the problem!

But wait, we haven’t even come to the back cover blurb.  Check it out:

He’s a Harley-riding ex-thief…she’s a gun-toting ex-socialite. Together they’ll take the ride of a lifetime in this erotic romance from “an undoubted master.”

Mac Canfield was the last man Lily West expected to see again, never mind aim

 her gun at. But there he was, the bad boy who’d broken her heart years ago-still a thief, hijacking a priceless artifact-and it was all she could do to push aside the memories of how it felt to have his perfectly chiseled body next to hers.
