Las Vegas showgirl Carly Jacobsen and her neighbor Wolfgang Jones just canít seem to get along. He hates her noisy pets and she wishes he wasnít such a stick in the mud. They are never around each other for more than a few minutes before one, or both, lose their temper. He even works for the same casino, so she canít manage to escape him there either.


Wolf has a very definite plan for his life, and it doesnít include his wacky neighbor, no matter how great her legs are. Having been dragged all over the world as a child, he craves security and normalcy. That certainly all changes when he unexpectedly finds himself taking responsibility for his teenage nephew Niklaus.


So how is that two people who canít stand each other also have such terrific chemistry? Their hormones seem to take over whenever they are near, and inevitably things heat up. With Wolfís plans mapped out for him, and Carlyís zero desire to ever get married and give control of her life over to a man, the two decide to take advantage of their desire for each other for the short amount of time they have together. But neither one expects their emotions to get involved. When the opportunity Wolf has always been waiting for comes along, will he follow his plan or will he realize his priorities have changed?


Those of you who enjoyed previously releasedSkintight will be thrilled to see Treena and Jax and Mack and Ellen again. All four are as close as family to Carly and donít want to see her get hurt. They are also willing to accept Wolf into their lives, giving him his first experience of true friendship. Though lighthearted for the most part, the story also involves a stalker who has his sights set on Carly.
