On Order



It's been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn't in the cards just yet . . .

Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin's past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd's best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed--and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

Author Notes

Stanley Walker was born in Lampasas, Texas, in 1898. He first joined the staff of the New York Herald Tribune as a reporter and rewrite man in 1920, became night city editor in 1926, and served as city editor from 1928 to 1935. After working for a number of other newspapers and magazines in New York and Philadelphia, he returned to Lampasas in 1946, where he continued to write until his death, in 1962. His 1933 book The Night Club Era is also available in paperback from Johns Hopkins.

Library Journal Review

As a writer for the old New York Herald Tribune in the 1920s and 1930s, Walker chronicled the city in words the way Weegee did with a Graflex. City Editor, from 1934, follows his own career at the Tribune as well as offering lessons in the ethics of journalism, freedom of the press, and the corporate influence on editorial. Written in 1933, The Night Club Era is Walker's portrait of the wicked city during Prohibition and how the banning of liquor gave rise to a new social setting in which, legal or not, booze flowed uninhibited and gangsters rubbed shoulders with socialites and legitimate businessmen, all unified with the single intent of having a high time with a highball. Both volumes could function equally well as history texts. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
