Bedroom Eyes

I’ve never read any titles from Hailey North, but this was a fun journey. A bit retro in feel and approach, the original release was in 1998, and much of the twists, turns and humor have an air of nostalgia about them.

Penelope is a tax attorney, and a bit straight-laced.  While she believes she wants, and should want a relationship, she honestly doesn’t believe she has time for a man, so she invents one to keep questions and fix-ups at bay.

I like Penelope – she’s funny and smart, and her interactions, particularly with the meddlesome Mrs. Merlin are cute.  Mrs. Merlin is a bit of a hoot actually, and she’s not graciously accepting of Penelope’s fantasy man.  Oh – and her name? HUGE giveaway.

Tony is an investigator, and Penelope happens to be a suspect. But, he can’t deny the attraction. And with the help from Mrs. Merlin and her not so wonderful spell, he’ll have to work harder to prove his interest to Penelope.  I’m on the fence about Tony – there’s just not as much fun in the relationship as I hoped for, and he’s not feeling possible to me.  Not bad, just not enough to drive me forward to keep reading.

Still, this was a fun story that felt nostalgic and had several moments of giggles – particularly with the twists brought in with Mrs. Merlin

Boudoir Lies...

Overworked tax attorney Penelope Sue fields never had time for romance -- so she invented a phantom lover named Raoul to fill the gaping hole in her love life. But all it takes is one chance encounter with hunky undercover cop Tony Olano in a New Orleans elevator, and Penelope is ready to give her fantasy man the boot in favor of the flesh and blood, rippling muscled real thing. Now if only he would notice her.

Bedroom Eyes

Badboy-turned-cop Tony Olano can't help but notice the dreamy-eyed lawyer -- she's not only desirable, she's a suspect in his ongoing criminal investigation! And that's where grandmotherly Mrs. Meableel Merlin comes in. A well-meaning meddler, Mrs. Merlin's prepared to use mystical arts to unite the "all-work-no-play" lady lawer and the sexy, sensitive lawman. Trouble is that her spell goes seriously awry, leaving Tony and Penelope to forge their own tumultuous path to good old-fashioned passion.

About Hailey North

Since that day, North has penned eight romantic comedies set in her adopted hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana, and in her favorite imaginary town, Doolittle, Arkansas.
She has also created a three-book “afterlife” series that celebrates creative, but accidentally dead, characters trying their darnedest to win a second chance at life. North lives in Louisiana with her husband, her food-centric Labrador Shelby and her two kindred-spirit felines, Ali Kat and Rosa Pax.
