An Elizabeth Bevarly contemporary is like one of those lazy river water park ridesall you're required to do is lie back and enjoy the journey. Her latest, Fast & Loose, is just that easy and fun. Set in Louisville during the days preceding the Kentucky Derby, Fast & Loose introduces readers to a special season and two special characters: hotshot horse trainer Cole Early and down-to-earth glass artist Lulu Flannery. Though Cole and Lulu meet on his first day in town, for some time he has no idea the funky place he's rented belongs to her. Cole is intrigued by Lulu when they run into each other experiencing Derby night life, but he's even more entranced by the house's owner who has left him dozens of sticky notesfrom amusing cautions against eating her M&Ms to a list of all the reasons he should keep his mitts off her computer keyboard. Once he finds out the two women are one and the same, well, what "King" Cole Early wants, King Cole Early gets. Full of fire and wordplay, Fast & Loose is a sure bet.
