Tongue in Chic by Christina Dodd

Thigh High (Fortune Hunter)     Christina Dodd has hit on a winning series with The Fortune Hunters.  If you have read any of my reviews, you know that I like to read books in a series in order - first to last.  Well, I got blindsided with The Fortune Hunters and ended up reading Book #4, Danger in a Red Dress, first!  The heroine, Hannah Grey, is a home-health care nurse, hired by Carrick Manly to care for his mother, Melinda.  Carrick has also hired Gabriel Prescott to wire Balfour House so that when Melinda tells Hannah where the Manly millions are stashed, he, Carrick, can get to them before the government can move in.  As Gabriel watches Hannah, he begins to wonder is she really is a "fortune hunter" or a nurse who really cares for her patient.
     As I read Danger in a Red Dress, I began to meet some characters whose stories had been told in previous books.  I found and read Thigh High, which was #3 (see review below) and then I read Tongue in Chic #2.
     Tongue in Chic centers on Devlin Fitzwilliam, another Nathan Manly bastard.  Devlin is out for revenge and has bought the family estate.  Meadow Szarvas doesn't know that when she breaks in looking for a very valuable painting her grandmother has told her is in the mansion.  Grandmother was once married to the original estate owner.  Meadow claims amnesia when Devlin discovers her and, since she is suppose to have amnesia, he then tells her she is his wife!  From there, the situation gets even more complicated when Meadow and Devlin realize they are not the only people looking for the painting.  Dodd writes great plots with humorous dialog and great pacing.  You won't be bored ever with a Christina Dodd romance!
