Although Julie is no delicate flower, being kidnapped and roughed up would take its toll on anyone. But rather than being intimidated and scared of Clint, Julie Rose instinctively trusts him, nestling close for protection. Julie is a schoolteacher, intelligent and no-nonsense. Although she also has a large trust fund that's handled by her Uncle Drew, Julie is perfectly content to live on her teacher's salary and make her own way in the world. And contrary to what Clint was told when he was hired, Julie Rose is no longer engaged. She's ready to explore her wild side, and she thinks Clint may be just the man to help her find it.
Clint has no plans to get involved with anyone, least of all a prim, proper schoolteacher who is both trusting and inexperienced. His heart is his own, and he doesn't intend to share it. Yet he's strangely discontented when Julie Rose wants an affair with him, no strings attached. She wants to let her inner wild child escape if only for a while. Clint isn't thrilled that Julie wants to treat him as nothing more than a convenient male body, even though he is convinced that Julie is interested in him only because he rescued her from a desperate situation. Besides, Clint has agreed to protect Julie Rose as they try to figure out who is behind the kidnapping. What kind of man would take advantage of a woman under those circumstances? Yet beneath the tenseness and enforced intimacy of their situation, is it possible that genuine, lasting feelings are growing between Clint and Julie?
JUST A HINT - CLINT is the latest in Lori Foster's Visitation series. Julie Rose was first introduced in SAY NO TO JOE? and in fact there's a visit from Joe Winston himself, along with another tantalizing appearance by the elusive Jamie Creed. Julie Rose is a curious mixture of innocence and sensuality, a woman who refuses to let others dictate her life. Clint Evans is tough and hard, but with a soft heart he doesn't acknowledge yet can't quite keep hidden. A true hero, Clint appears all the more human thanks to his weak stomach. There are plenty of tense moments as well as a generous amount of sensual ones, all woven throughout a superior plot with plenty of surprises. Although I am always a fan of Lori Foster's work, I think she has outdone herself here. It's a definite keeper!
