About the book:

What woman can resist a hot man in a hard hat? Beloved author Ruthie Knox kicks off her new Camelot series with this deliciously sexy original novella, in which a good girl learns how to misbehave . . . with all her heart.
As program director for the Camelot Community Center, Amber Clark knows how to keep her cool. That is, until a sudden tornado warning forces her to take shelter in a darkened basement with a hunk of man whose sex appeal green lights her every fantasy. With a voice that would melt chocolate, he asks her if she is okay. Now she’s hot all over and wondering: How does a girl make a move?
Building contractor Tony Mazzara was just looking to escape nature’s fury. Instead, he finds himself all tangled up with lovely Amber. Sweet and sexy, she’s ready to unleash her wild side. Their mutual desire reaches a fever pitch and creates a storm of its own–unexpected, powerful, and unforgettable. But is it bigger than Tony can handle? Can he let go of painful memories and let the force of this remarkable woman show him a future he never dreamed existed?

HOW TO MISBEHAVE is a great short story and a great beginning to a new series. I am quickly becoming a huge fan Ruthie Knox’s writing. I read one book that didn’t work for me, but the rest have been fantastic. HOW TO MISBEHAVE takes place in 1999 so that when the Camelot series continues in the present the readers will know how Amber and Tony fell in love. I love the idea of having this glimpse of an established couple. Their romance is hot, sexy, and full of emotion. Amber and Tony both have stuff they have to deal with, but they come to realize that they could deal with their stuff better together. I love how Tony is able to bring out Amber’s “wild side” as he teaches her how to misbehave and how Amber is able to calm Tony’s. They are a perfect match. I can’t wait to read the first full-length book in the Camelot series – ALONG CAME TROUBLE.
