A standalone title in the Cougar Challenge series.
Darci-Rae Whitlam doesn’t know which is more disturbing, receiving scads of obscene phone calls—or getting so turned-on by said phone calls. Then there’s the email from her American friend, Rachel, taunting Darci with something called a Cougar Challenge. Just the thought of seducing a younger man is enough to permanently soak her knickers. No wonder her ever-disapproving sister thinks she’s oversexed!
Cybercrime Detective Jarrod St. James is investigating a case of stolen identity. He quickly learns the fiery redhead claiming to be Darci-Rae Whitlam is the real deal (his shoulder trapped in the jaws of her gargantuan dog might have sped that decision along). He really should go back to Sydney, continue tracking the imposter who’s operating a phone-sex business in Darci’s name…but the woman proves too tempting. Job be damned, he has to have her. The fact she’s got a titillating challenge to complete only helps his case.
Darci just may be the fastest cougar to snag her cub yet. Being the victim of a crime has never been more fun!
Darci-Rae Whitlam, 40 year old Australian school teacher, has just been issued a challenge: To become a cougar, to find and seduce a man in his 20's, and live out her wildest fantasies. Detective Jarrod St. James is tasked with finding out who stole Darci's identity to open a phone sex business.
Darci, is a school teacher with a naughty side, albeit a slightly repressed naughty side. With the voice of her proper and inhibited sister Vivian in her head, Darci is discovering her fantasies, as well as her actions are starting to be censored. So when Darci's friend Rachel invites her to take the Cougar Challenge, how can she refuse? Detective Jarrod St. James, is tracking down an illegal phone-sex worker, when he runs into the real Darci-Rae Whitlam. After the initial lust induced confusion is cleared up, Darci decides not to let this serendipitous meeting go to waste. What ensues is a whirlwind of sex, dirty phone calls, copulating teddy bears and self-discovery.
Lexxie Couper takes you on a wild ride of lust, sex, friendship, familial and cultural pressures, and the need to be true to yourself. With friends who know you better than you know yourself, well-written characters that leave you wanting more, and sex scenes that sizzle, the only fault I can find with Copping A Feel is that it is too short. I wanted to know what happened when Vivian met Jarrod at breakfast, or how Darci dealt with Terry Cahill, her unruly student, at school on Monday.
Despite its brevity, I highly recommend Copping A Feel, and I can't wait to read more about the women who have accepted The Cougar Challenge.
