Doing It Right
Thief Of Hearts
There's never a dull night in the ER for Dr. Jared Dean, especially when he sees the woman of his fantasies beating the crud out of the city's biggest, toughest mo...more
The First Novella "Thief of Hearts" is about an E.R. doctor named Dr. Jared Dean and Kara - who is better known on the streets as The Avenging Angel. They have a chance encounter and their lives become entwined in a screwball "it can only happen in a book" way. Lot's of fun, lots of actual laughing out loud, and just enough heat with the loving to make a girl need a cool drink of water.
On a side note - I love how MaryJanice Davidson will switch ...more
It's not that the lust stories in this book are unrealistic. People's hormones get the better of them all the time. It's the love aspect injected into the stories that had me raising an eyebrow. ...more
Thief of Hearts, the longer story, is about the love match between an ER doctor, Dr. Jared Dean, and the city's so-called The Avenging Angel, Kara. In between fighting and hiding from the mobster Kara had a run-in with, she and Jared were falling in love. Jared fell hopelessly in love with her and he made it known from the beginning while Kara was scared and standoffish. Obviously, by the end of the s ...more

Your best bet is to A) suspend every ounce of logic you have (reading with one eye closed may help), or B) skip the thin plot and jump right to the naughty bits.
2 short stories. Both had potential to be remotely interesting, but as you can tell from the title, the plot gets lost in exchange for sex. (At least the first short story did.) Both short stories tie together because of the characters. I just read it because it's one of the few MJD stories I haven't read. If the second story had had time to develop I might have liked the characters. They were a little unbelievable, but they were at least funny.

Dr. Jared Dean can hardly believe he's watching the woman of his fantasies beating the crud out of the city's biggest, toughest mobster. Kara never meant for her latest revenge stunt to land the gorgeous doc on a hit list, but there's only one thing to do: guard Dr. Jared's extremely fine bod until she can figure a way out of this mess for both of them.
"messing with the D.A.'s sister is crazy, but.."
I enjoyed the fact that the superhero was female, but I wish a little more of her background was given.
The story is action packed and fun.
Two fun, and connected stories about unexpected love matches, with strong funny women, and hot funny men. Great combo, and fun to read.
The Bad: Unfortunately, the sex is the only thing right about this book. Davidson attempts her well-known style of humor here, but it just doesn't work for the characters. They can't pull off the wit nor the scandalous, ridiculous situations they are thrust into.
I am know going to buy an armadillo suit and some dill pickles.
