Don't Look Down

Romance Contemporary

After a teary conversation with her niece, New York TV director Lucy Armstrong storms onto a movie set in Georgia ready to rescue her sister, who's in trouble. Finding her sister not forthcoming with the details and refusing to leave, Lucy stays and reluctantly accepts filming the final four days of an action flick after the director and his staff quit. Discovering her ex-husband is the stunt director and knowing his propensity for trouble, Lucy needs to extricate her sister from his influence.

When Green Beret Captain J.T. Wilder accepts a gig as an advisor on a movie, he figures easy money and easy work. Instead, he walks into a disaster where someone is shooting real bullets. Before long, the CIA contacts J.T. and coerces him into helping them on the set. They're awaiting the arrival of a Russian mobster and an international terrorist.

The sparks fly between J.T. and Lucy as they try to uncover the numerous plots of intrigue. People are not what they appear to be and danger is exploding all around. Lucy decides to place her trust in J.T. and hope they can put the missing pieces together.

The pairing of Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer in this hilarious and utterly satisfying novel is brilliant. Crusie, with her funny ensemble characters, and Mayer, with his action-packed hero, create a tale that leaps off the pages and grabs readers' attention. A definite winner!

Lucy Sullivan is a director of television commercials who's just been offered her big break: a chance to direct an action movie. But she arrives on the set to discover that the entire directing staff has quit, the stars are egomaniacs, the stunt director is her charming ex-husband, and the lead actor has just hired a “military consultant” who has the aggravating habit of always being right.
