What does a gal have to do to get a good date in this town?
Adele Harris can't even begin to answer that question. She's had so many lousy dates that she's sure she's cursed. Why else would every man she goes out with suddenly act like he's lost his mind--and his manners? Adele thought life couldn't get any more confusing . . . until she learns the marriage of her seemingly Miss Perfect sister is on the rocks. So she goes back to their hometown to give her a shoulder to cry on, only to run smack into Zach Zemaitis . . . the one who got away.
Texans love God, family, and football, though not always in that order
Zach, a former pro star, knows all about football. As for the other two, well, he's doing his best. But when Adele comes charging back into his life--still all lush curves and beautiful, big blue eyes--he wonders if his best is good enough. After all, he did her wrong. Can a woman with her track record ever really believe that he's serious this time . . . or is he destined to be another bad date?

Not to be missed
Reading a Rachel Gibson romance is as spirit-boosting as an afternoon of retail therapy. And in Not Another Bad Date, it's heroine Adele Harris whose spirits need lifting. Sure that she's cursed thanks to a succession of worse-than-dud dates, Adele is not that unhappy to be back in her hometown and caring for her niece while her sister is hospitalized with a difficult pregnancy. Until she runs into her first love and first lover, retired professional football player Zach Zemaitis. Now a high school coach, Zach has never forgotten Adele, and Adele has never forgotten Zachor the way he broke her heart. The chemistry between the two is not a thing of memories, however. But while Adele tries to keep her heart in line and Zach tries to keep things light, there's also a mean-girl ghost of a former wife who would like nothing better than to keep them apart. You'll turn the last page of this funny, sexy story and feel as good as a day at the mallwithout the credit card hangover!
