Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A voluptuous woman travels around the United States with a scheming male accomplice preying on rich men whose oversized libidos inevitably overwhelm their common sense. While the female engages the targeted men in sexual activities, her accomplice covertly tapes their phone conversations and photographs them in compromising situations. Blackmail is their objective of course, and this clever couple has been extremely successful at it. Employing her conspicuous physical attributes and disarming personality, the female hits on their next chosen "target"--a wealthy inventor who lives in a condo along the coast of scenic La Jolla, California. From all appearances, their usual modus operandi is serving their devious purpose flawlessly, until unexpected issues crop up. Their latest "target" is different in many respects from their previous conquests. For openers, he has a handsome millionaire son, owner of a local video game company. And then the "target's" billionaire business acquaintance, who lives in Singapore, invites them to be his houseguests in Honolulu--one of the many locations throughout the world where he owns impressive homes. This short, easy-to-read tale, taking place over a time frame of several weeks, will grab and hold your interest from start to finish. And the ending will definitely surprise you… unless you become so intimately acquainted with Regina that you enter her world. Then all things are possible.
