Friday Fiction: A Perfect Gem

A Perfect Gem
Erickson
1987

Jane Manning, our rough and tumble girl from Colorado has a bunch of older brothers and wants to be in security, as in professional bodyguard. She trains hard and her brothers and father expect she will give it up and settle down. She doesn’t and before you know it, she is guarding sexy Graham Smith. ¬†Lots of action and the requisite amount of doubt about her feelings give this book a bit more juice than a damsel in distress story.

I mostly picked up the book because I thought they looked naked on the cover. I mean where is her gun supposed to be?

More Romance with cover art that makes me look twice:

What’s in the pocket?

That’s Quite a Look!

  • She doesn’t need a gun. She isn’t guarding him, she is working along side him, guarding documents and diamonds.

  • And she makes sandwiches, too.

  • Wow, a female guard! That’s really progressive and awesome–a really nice change of pace for a romance novel. :reads opening sentence of Chapter 3: “Jane made him a sandwich…” :Sad Trombone: Never mind.

    • Maybe making a sandwich is part of her duties. That way she can be sure he’s not about to be poisoned.

  • Am I the only one who thought of Jem?

  • I love the tight skirt. How practical! Sigh.

  • “Pale, muscular buttocks”…snork.

  • It took me a minute to figure out what was going on with what I eventually decided is the heel of her foot.
