Lori Foster has written over a hundred sexy contemporary romance stories. Readers adore the heroes she creates. The men are alpha, protective and deeply committed to the women they love. They put family first and never fail to take care of their own.
This type of hero can be found in all of her work. For example, she wrote a loosely connected series decades ago called The Sawyers Siblings. The men in the three stories have very different personalities but they all follow the same code of honor.
In Little Miss Innocent, Daniel Sawyers is an ER doctor who has always taken care of others. He became the patriarch of his family at an early age and protects the people he loves. He doesn’t like how sex therapist Lace has transformed his sweet sister into a femme fatale and thinks the woman is a bad influence.
Lace thinks Daniel is a prude and encourages his disapproval. She uses it as a defense because she is far too interested in him. But her guard is down when she gets injured and Daniel steps in to take care of her. She has no idea that Daniel has a devilish streak underneath his reserve. He’ll use her misconceptions about him to get her into his bed.
First published in 1999, this love story is about two people who want to avoid love and fight it every step of the way.
Annie, Get Your Guy is a brother’s best friend romance originally published in 2001. Annie Sawyers is considered pure, sweet and innocent. These are not the qualities needed to seduce her brother’s best friend. She’s been in love with Guy forever and this is her last chance to show him how she feels.
Guy is very loyal to Annie’s family. The Sawyers have given him everything and, as far as he’s concerned, he is obligated to them. When he’s not looking after the family business, he’s taking care of the Sawyers as if they were his own. The worst thing he could do is date Annie. He isn’t going to ruin everything by following his heart or indulging in his fantasies. Anyway, Annie could do better than hook up with the hanger-on and charity case. But when he discovers that she’s planning to seduce a man to satisfy her needs, Guy decides he has to save her from her own curiosity.
Messing Around with Max is the final story in The Sawyers Siblings. First published in 2001, this lighthearted love story is about a playboy meeting his match. Maddie’s naïveté has become a problem and she needs to gain more sexual experience. What better way than seducing a man every woman wants?
Max Sawyers might be disreputable, but Maddie knows he can’t be all bad. Just watching him care for his dog—the ugliest, neediest mutt ever—shows he has a tender side. She didn’t plan for the explosive chemistry she has with Max and she definitely didn’t expect to like him so much. But when she discovers this heartbreaker is ready to settle down and find a wife, there might be a problem. Marriage isn’t part of her plan.
