Synopsis: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LIBRARY JOURNAL AND RT BOOK REVIEWS • In this scorching-hot Camelot novel from RITA finalist andbestselling author Ruthie Knox, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.
Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.
Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s newfound independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.
Praise for Flirting with Disaster “Knox’s Camelot, Ohio, books showcase just what this author does best, create love stories that feature real people in situations that readers can understand and with which they can empathize. . . . Additionally, she writes absolutely smoking-hot love scenes! Her heroes and her heroines redeem and save each other. Love doesn’t conquer all, but it makes life a whole lot sweeter.”—Library Journal
“Flirting with Disaster is, at heart, a love story and it’s one that Ms. Knox makes sweet and sexy. The scenes between Sean and Katie are filled with wit and want.”—All About Romance “What I love most about the way Ruthie Knox writes is her fantastic ability to turn the ordinary into something very special. . . . There were so many moments in the book that made me smile and laugh, and that’s the beauty of her writing. I was rooting for both Katie and Sean throughout the entire book, and I was very satisfied with how it came about.”—Paranormal Haven “Two thumbs up for this author who has this girl crushing hard on her stories!”—Living in a Fictional World “Her ability to infuse her writing with such humor and heart is what makes it so appealing to readers. I can always count on Knox to make me smile with one of her books.”—Under the Covers “Sean and Katie are a couple that you must get to know. They’re charming together, a perfect fit and I loved their banter and play on page. Tack on a sweet epilogue at the end, and Flirting with Disaster is one very satisfying read.”—Happily Ever After-Reads
“A great new voice in contemporary romance . . . hilarious, heartfelt, and hot.”—New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristan Higgins
“I’ll read anything by Ruthie Knox—her books are always sexy, funny, beautifully poignant, and honest.”—Molly O’Keefe, bestselling author of Crazy Thing Called Love
