"Chicago – Present Day
Raised by her grandparents after the death of her parents, Sunny Chandler has been reared the “Chandler” way and is expected to step from graduate school into her grandfather’s place at Chandler Enterprises. While Sunny loves and respects her grandparents, she chafes at the sterile environment, and longs to find out for herself what she wants, and who she really is. Deciding she needs time on her own before taking her place in the family company, she answers the advertisement for kitchen help at D’Angelo’s Italian restaurant. Sunny is only looking to find herself, but what she finds is a man who could steal her heart.
Niccolo D’Angelo absolutely does not want to hire the beautiful, blond, non-Italian debutante to work in his family restaurant, but Mama Bennie has other ideas. Nick reluctantly agrees to give Sunny a one-month trial period, with every intention of firing this social butterfly at the first opportunity. He hadn’t counted on his heart taking over his mind…and his common sense.
Can a wealthy socialite and a family businessman possibly find a way to build a life together, or will social pressures and family obligation tear them apart?
WALK ON THE WILD SIDE is a treat for fans of Ms. Kauffman’s work. With all the fun and sensuality of her Loveswept titles, WALK ON THE WILD SIDE also delivers secondary characters that charm the reader and add a fullness to the story I found truly enjoyable. From Mama Bennie to Nick’s various siblings, each one found a place in my heart. For a captivating and sinfully sexy read, I highly recommend WALK ON THE WILD SIDE." ~Terrie Figuero
