Book Description

July 1 2004 Bad Boys Series
Sizzling in Sydney - Sexy, macho Cameron Crane knows he needs San Francisco marketing guru Jennifer Talbot to take his Australian surf and boogie board business into the lucrative American market. No worries, mate. He'll just seduce the little sheila. But the minute Cameron lays eyes on Jenn, he's got the feeling the adorable, whip-smart business lady can see right through him-and he's never been more turned on...Surfer Boy - Handling the advertising campaign for Crane surf and boogie boards is hard-working and exec Lise Atwater's dream job. But turning their Australian surfer boy into a product spokesman is going to take a lot of work. Hunky Steve Jackson is a muscular, take-me-as-I-am kind of guy who thinks he's in the States to party and bed women. It's ridiculous, and if Lise weren't so suddenly preoccupied with picking out a new bikini and donning high heels around the office, she'd tell him so. The Great Barrier - Being dumped by his fiancee, Jennifer, for that barely civilized playboy, Cameron Crane, has left Mark Forsythe in a funk. From now on, the straight-arrow Mark is going to be as bad as they come. He's even booked an Australian vacation so he can sow his wild oats down under. On his first night, the novice bad boy ends up passed out in slinky Bronwyn Spencer's bed. Though nothing happened, Bronwyn's happy to let Mark think they've shared a night of passion so hot, he's got to experience it again...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stories of some passionate Australians July 11 2004
By Sarah W
Format:Paperback
Bad Boys Down Under is one of the best Bad Boys books I've read in awhile. I'm a big fan of Brava's Bad Boys themed books, but as of late none of them have really caught my attention. Well, that all changed with Nancy Warren's latest book. Each story in this book had me hooked from the first page to the last and I thought each story was truly original and entertaining.
My personal favorite of the three stories, "Sizzling in Sydney" was the first of the book. It features marketing wizard Jennifer Talbot and surfboard millionaire Cameron Crane. Cam knows he needs Jen's help with his campaign to provide surf boards to the U.S., he just never knew how much he would come to want sexy Jen for herself. Unfortunately, there are a few problems standing in their way, not the least of which is Jen's engagement to another man. Will Cam and Jen find their happily-ever-after?
Like I said, this was my favorite of the book. Jen and Cam were great couples and Cam was an amazing hero. He was sweet, funny, and not afraid to prove to Jen that he was the man for her. There were lots of laughs in this story, along with Nancy Warren's trademark sensuality. A great story that will satisfy any reader.
"Surfer Boy" is the second story in this book, and it is another great read. Steel worker Steve Jackson has taken a part time modeling career with Crane surfboards, to promote the boards in California. He arrives in California and has quite the first encounter with ad executive Lise Atwater. From then on, the heat just keeps going up as these two great characters fall desperately in love. But how will they be able to stay together, when they live on opposite ends of the world.
This was a great story too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Boys, Bad Boys....hmmmm July 7 2004
Format:Paperback
What can I say? I LOVED this book! The characters were seemed so real the I felt like I got to know them. They each had insecurities and flaws that made them more human to me. The stories themselves (3 short novellas which are interconnected but distinctly different)were entertaining and interesting.
Two of the stories (the first and third) take place "Down Under" in Australia and were highly entertaining and romantic. I wasn't actually sure that I would like Cameron Crane upon first "meeting" him but grew to like him right along with Jennifer. The second and sweetest story was set in America and had a hunky bad boy named Steve as the lead man - yummy! The third story had a double connection to the first and was funny at times and poignant at others.
This is a must read for romance fans! If you've not given Ms. Warren's books a chance before, here's the perfect opportunity! I'd warn you though, you might become addicted - especially to those wonderful alpha males / bad boys! Definitely better than chocolate! (And sexy too!!)

This was a great story too. You will not be let down as you see these two characters drop their masks in order to find happiness with each other.
The last story is "The Great Barrier" and yet again, this is a superb example of Nancy Warren's story telling abilities. Mark Forsythe is feeling down since his ex-fiancee, Jen Talbot, dumped him for Cameron Crane. He's determined to drop his good boy image and live it up in Australia because he doesn't think he has anything to lose. Women don't seem to like the good guys in life. Bronwyn Spencer is assigned by her half-brother Cameron Crane to watch over Mark while he's in Australia. She just never realized how attracted she was going to be to the accountant.
This is probably the steamiest of the stories, but yet again, it is filled with emotions and lots of love and laughter. There isn't a story in this collection that will leave you disappointed. I can only hope that future "Bad Boys" titles live up to Nancy Warren's Bad Boys Down Under.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Boys have never been so good! Aug. 23 2004
By Holly Fuhrmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Cam knows surfing, but he's not sure what to make of Jen...a woman's who's come to Australia to help him figure out how to take his surfing empire to the US. She's there for business, but Cam soon has other plans!

Steve is sent to the US to represent Cam's surfing company in the new ad campaign. Lise is supposed to turn the rugged iron worker into a model. But rather than turning him into anything, he's turning her on!

Cam's little sister, Bron, is known as a party girl. But when she meets Crane's new accountant nothing seems to balance. She's not sure what to make of their instant attraction. But lucky for her, Mark knows how things add up!

Three couples, three matches that seem less than perfect, turn out to be perfectly wonderful stories of surf, sun...and a healthy dose of love! Nancy Warren shines like never before. Bad Boys have never been so good!

Of the three stories, the least likable is unfortunately the first. The `hero' in that story is a self-made millionaire who invites the engaged `heroine' to his company to create a marketing plan. Without telling her, he ensconces her in his home instead of a hotel and meets her there, reclining naked in a hot tub. He then proceeds to flash her to get out of the hot tub. Lovely. Knowing she is engaged, he nonetheless then decides to seduce her to show her who is boss. Also lovely. Then they somehow `fall in love' (that is, fall in lust) and she succumbs - only after removing her engagement ring in the bathroom. She justifies her actions by saying she couldn't possibly feel so attracted to Mr. Flasher if she was truly in love with her fiance. So great -- good to go and let's hit the sheets now that we've justified it. She then proceeds to screw the guy like a bunny the entire remaining time of her trip, with a small lull in the festivities to break up with her fiancé over the phone. When the fiancé asks Miss Sensitive why she couldn't wait until she came home to do this in person, her response was that she wanted to have a nice final week with her screw mate and couldn't if she was feeling guilty over being still technically engaged. What a shame! Boo hoo to her. I certainly prefer characters to feel `real' as opposed to perfect gods and goddesses, but these two characters are the type I wouldn't want to have dinner with, let alone leave my spouse alone with.

The second story involving the model the first heroine found in Australia and sent back to the States for `grooming' is much better. The third, involving the jilted fiancé and the first hero's sister is totally implausible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Boys Down Under is a so-so read! April 24 2009
By Susie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bad Boys Down Under isn't great, but it isn't terrible. Somewhat mediocre. The first story is my least favorite. Jennifer Talbot comes to Australia to help Cameron Crane, a filthy rich entrepreneur. He wants to expand his company to the States and Jennifer is hired to handle marketing and expansion. Cameron has heard of the great reputation that Jennifer has in helping companies, but he also wants to seduce Jennifer into his bed. Jennifer is engaged to be married to Mark Forsthye, a tax accountant back in the States. What ticks me off about this story is that A) Cameron could care less that Jennifer is engaged and he continues to pursue her B) Jennifer ends up cheating on her fiance with him. She tries to make herself look better by taking off her engagement ring before they jump into the sack together. C) She neglects to break off her engagement immediately. It seems like at least a week goes by of her sleeping with Cameron before she breaks it off. Enough said! I didn't like this story that much. Moving on...

The second story is about Steve Jackson, a steel worker who gets hired to do some modeling and advertising for Cameron Crane's (from the first story) surf board company. He is sent to the U.S. so that he can get proper training and have a screen test and pics made. What he gets is Lise Atwater in a hilarious airport scene who is hired to help Steve become the perfect model/spokesman for the Crane company. I enjoyed this story the most. Steve thought at first that Lise was a party girl and Lise thought at first that Steve was an arrogant model. When they realize that they had the wrong impressions of each other, things start to take off with them in the romance department. But Steve is going back to Australia in a few weeks, and Lise will be going back to her normal, boring routine life. Cute story!

The third story is about Cameron Crane's half-sister, Bronwyn Spencer, and Mark Forsthye (Jennifer Talbot's ex-fiance from the first story). Mark comes to Australia to come work for Cameron's company for a short time. He also wants to see Jennifer for himself to see if she is as happy as she says that she is. Mark was burned badly by Jennifer and he wants to not get hurt again. So he adopts a bad boy, love-em and leave-em attitude which doesn't work because he meets Bronwyn. Bronwyn wants Mark. Soon after meeting, Bronwyn and Mark get hot and heavy pretty quick like and Bronwyn tries her hardest to get Mark to change his mind about adopting bad boy ways. There are some humorous scenes with Bronwyn trying to get other women to leave Mark alone. This story was definitely the funniest of the three. What Mark doesn't know is that Bronwyn is trying to get Mark to fall for her and her only and that she is also Cameron's half-sister. Wait until he finds out the truth! This is a cute story too, although somewhat unbelievable, it's still cute!
