From the back of the book:

Brash Doctor Who Specialized in Seduction.

Major Rob McGee needed a wife–but he WANTED Heather Tomasi! He’d met the lovely temptress only once two years before, but his body still remembered the silk of her skin, the wicked promises in her eyes…and she definitely wasn’t wife material! Heather hadn’t forgotten the playboy whose gaze was like a caress, whose touch made her tremble-but she vowed she was having too much fun to settle down.

He Fed Her Appetite for Passion with Pleasure.

Tantalized by a woman who ate dessert instead of dinner and always wore red, Ron risked spontaneous combustion when his lips dueled with Heather’s, but did he dare agree to a charade that would cast him as her lover? She’d never avoided a challenge before, but feared confessing the truth might drive Rob away. Once he understood why she lived on the edge, could he make her see she was his destiny?

This is another mini-review drawn from my ever-waning 30-year-old memories of books I read long ago.

Judy Gill’s Loveswept #605, Healing Touch, had a rather memorable start as the heroine, Heather, bungee jumps naked. I forget what it was for, but it was supposed to be for a good cause. Apparently, naked bungee jumping is real, as a Google search shows a quarter of a million hits. I admit I looked… Yikes!

Plus, there was a contestant on The Bachelor a few years back who did that on a date, causing some controversy. (I don’t watch tv and don’t keep up with this stuff.) So you know right from the outset that the heroine isn’t the “traditional” super modest type.

Air Force Major Dr. Rob McGee instantly notices Heather. What guy wouldn’t? He’s her total opposite. Rob’s a single dad, a straight-laced kind of guy, while Heather is more of the free-spirited type. Rob is looking for commitment and knows she’s not the kind of woman he needs in his ordered military life, but he can’t help but pursue the lovely Heather. Heather’s not so sure if she wants to be tied down rather than her usual of being tied up😉.

The two have great sexual chemistry, but Rob wants more than just sex. Can Heather overcome her fears of intimacy and take the biggest plunge yet?
