Jena Morgan, Atlantic City’s favorite go-go dancer, may have overreacted when she found her boyfriend balls deep in a stripper called Candy. Instead of washing her eyeballs with bleach, she drank a bottle of tequila and bought a house off the internet. A house far away from her cheating, criminal of an ex-boyfriend. A house in Scotland. As soon as she turns up to claim her new home, Jena finds out exactly why you shouldn't 'one-click' houses while falling-down drunk. It was a dump. With no money, and no skills outside of shaking her booty, Jena does the only thing she can do—she throws herself into the biggest DIY project the Highlands have ever seen.
Since Jena’s arrival in town, Officer Matt Donaldson’s workload has tripled. The woman is a menace, gorgeous yes, but definitely a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Her only discernible skill seems to be causing chaos wherever she goes. She attracts trouble like honey attracts bears. Which is why Matt isn't surprised when her ex-boyfriend turns out to be a member of the New Jersey mob. Although Jena’s ex has come to Scotland to win her back, she wants nothing to do with him—a reaction the mobster does not take well. Overnight, Matt’s job morphs from hunting missing cats and breaking up fights at the old folk’s home, to chasing down the mob and keeping Jena alive. And he's trying to do it all while remaining professional enough to keep his hands off his sexy, but crazy, American charge.
This is book 4 in the Invertary series, but can be read as a standalone novel.
Calamity Jena begins when Jena's ex-boyfriend shows up in her new town in Scotland. Jena left him months ago because he cheated on her, and she was done with it. Now, she believes he has connections with the mob, and is after more than she's willing to give. With the help of Matt, the local town cop, and the rest of the town Jena now lives in she's being kept safe for the moment. But "Calamity Jena" isn't ever safe for very long, especially after her strange clumsiness, and with her feelings for Matt growing things are getting complicated. Calamity Jena is a hilarious, heart warming story that pulls you in and leaves you feeling warm and squishy on the inside. It has a clumsy heroine, and more than one macho alpha male, with the "mine" syndrome. The story is wonderful with adventure, drama, some spicy romance, and of course lots of laughs. But it never went over the top, it was just the right blend all mixed together in this Calamity! This is a must read for those of you who like romance and lots of laughs!
