In ROUND THE CLOCK, the last of the Black Stockings Society
series, Anna Marie is retiring from her secret life as an
exotic dancer. Her real life, working a government job and
living with a slacker boyfriend, is not going so well, but
it's time to stop. Just as she does, she discovers that
she's about to receive an inheritance, and she receives
something else...an invitation to join the Black Stockings
The society promises to help Anna Marie fulfill her dreams.
The only thing she wants? One night with Desmond Rockwell.
Desmond is a man of secrets too. When he sees Anna Marie in
her last performance, he connects with her in a way that he
can't shake. Except he doesn't know her as Anna Marie, but
only as her exotic dancing persona. Still, he's determined
to find her.
Ms. Girard has written another fast-paced, fun read. The
story jumps right off and just keeps coming at the reader.
Both Anna Marie and Desmond have secrets in their
backgrounds that make for interesting plot twists and keep
the reader turning pages of this sexy romance.
I only wish a few more questions were answered about the
Black Stockings Society, like exactly who is behind it—there
are a few hints—and how it came about. But, I guess leaving
these things unanswered contributes to the continued sense
of mystery and leaves the door open for additional
installments down the road. Nonetheless, Ms. Girard created
a uniquely delicious series that will be missed.
Anna Marie has spent too long trying to please everybody
else. Now, thanks to an unexpected inheritance, she’s got a
new lease on life. Her first step? Accepting the invitation
to the Black Stockings Society. Still, the scandalous
fishnets she receives in her first package must be a
mistake. Anna Marie would never dare wear something so
outrageously sexy to a meeting with her lawyer…would she?
In high school, Desmond Rockwell was a rebel barely aware of
Anna Marie’s existence, or the fact that she had a major
crush on him. But he can’t ignore the bold, seductive woman
who has come to him seeking legal advice, unleashing a
sizzling attraction that proves that some things are
definitely worth the wait…
