Sam Ridge is a partner in Score, a PR firm that recently located to Fool's Gold, California. He's a retired NFL kicker with a bad track record with women. His choices in ladies always seem to turn out disastrous, and he's already had one of those disasters in Fool's Gold with Dellina Hopkins. It was only a one-night stand, but now Sam needs Dellina to plan a party for his company -- and he doesn't want to face her.

Finally, four weeks before the big party for their clients, Sam contacts Dellina. They clear the air about what happened Valentine's Day night and agree they can work together to pull off this huge endeavor. But the close proximity makes them yearn for each other. Can they be professional and keep things from heading to the bedroom again? Can Dellina finalize the details of this party in time?

Susan Mallery returns us to Fool's Gold with another romantic tale she is so gifted in crafting. Neither Sam nor Dellina are looking for love or marriage. Dellina just doesn't think it's in the cards for her, and Sam isn't willing to trust anyone with his heart again. Both are strong individuals, surrounded by a cast of supporting characters in a town of people who support each other. Ms. Mallery incorporates several sidebars into the tale that leave you intrigued and keep you engaged, wondering where the Fool's Gold saga will head next. As always, social ills of our society, as well as worthy causes, are incorporated into the plot. BEFORE WE KISS is a delightful romantic tale about trust and having faith in others with a surprising topic thrown in. Although several books have preceded BEFORE WE KISS in the Fool's Gold series, this is the second in a series about the Score PR firm partners. All the books can stand alone, but the entire series is a winner.

SUMMARY

New York Times bestselling sensation Susan Mallery returns to Fool's Gold, California, where it's true that sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs… Former pro-football kicker Sam Ridge has notoriously bad luck with women—from cheaters to fame chasers. Still, the gorgeous brunette at the bar in Fool's Gold looks harmless— until she takes him home and he discovers a room devoted to securing a man, for life.

Dellina Hopkins never guessed that storing gowns from a friend's bridal boutique would chase away her first and only fling. After her parents died, she skipped her "wild youth" to raise her sisters. She doesn't want forever from Sam, but one night—all night—would've been nice.

His clean getaway gets messy when his firm hires Dellina to plan an event. As long hours lead to late nights, the two succumb to temptation again. Has Sam's luck finally changed? Or this time, will Dellina be the one to run?
