“Running with my pants down” is a perfect metaphor for the life of one Logan Hunter. Emotionally scarred by the faith forced on him by the traditions of his wildly dysfunctional Catholic-centric family, Logan sets out to blaze his own trail. After a young marriage that everyone knew was doomed to failure, he moves on at a breakneck pace to drink in all that life has to offer, literally and figuratively. His life becomes ruled by the three Bs: business, bed-hopping, and booze. Somewhere along the way, he meets Misty, the sex kitten; Kat, the young, unpredictable one; Liz, the cougar with a voracious appetite for younger men; “Champagne” Washington, the sultry nightclub singer; Connie and Amanda, the gorgeous, sophisticated, and carnally experimental women who give him a night he’ll never forget; “The Wild Things”—Delta Sue, Kitten, and Lola; and the always-intoxicating Spanish beauty, Carmen. Could there be more? In an ironic twist of fate, Logan’s best friend, Eddie, starts down an unexpected, life-altering path that begins to mirror Logan’s. Neither could predict just how a couple of chance meetings would change the game for each of them.

She had been abandoned as a baby and now she was doing the abandoning. That house and family she left behind. Her guardian had died suddenly. It was grief that drove her away as a teen. At least that's what she told anyone who would ask. However, that wasn't the reason. She kept a secret locked up inside her never to resurface. Only one other person knew and she was going to keep it that way. Katrina told herself she would never return to that house, but after an intriguing phone call from the lawyer handling her guardian's estate she found herself facing her past and her fear. "No big deal" Katrina tells herself, she could handle anything. She didn't expect this small town lawyer to be a handsome, sea-eyed charmer with suspicion in his every action. Katrina ignores his strange ways until a phone call comes late one night and leaves her without a word. "Her body was found" Katrina's confidant says. That's impossible. It couldn't be "her body." Would her gruesome secret be revealed? What would keep her afloat? Could her salvation be the handsome so-called lawyer?
