Lingerie Wars

Lingerie Wars by Janet Elizabeth Henderson


Lingerie Wars is the first book in the Invertary Series.  This was the first book I have read by this author, but I now that she is on my radar I will be looking for future books. 

I loved the Scottish setting of this book and the characters were so funny.  This book gave me so many LOL moments.  I also loved the characters names Lake, Rainne, and Magenta are too cute.  The hot, strong alpha male does not hurt this book and paired with the snarky female made this book shine.  The residents of Invertary are hilarious and made this book what it is.  The character Betty was my favorite; she is witty, spunky, and spry 89 year old granny.

Englishman Lake Benson loaned his life savings to his dippy sister so that she could buy a shop. It was a big mistake. His sister has been steadily flushing his money down the drain – and now he wants it back. Years in the Special Forces taught Lake that if you want a job done, do it yourself. So he steps in to make the shop profitable, sell it and get his money back. The only problem is, the business is an underwear shop. And all Lake knows about underwear can be summed up in how fast he can unsnap a bra. To make matters worse, the tiny highland town already has a lingerie shop. A successful one, run by an ex-lingerie model. A very gorgeous ex-lingerie model, who’s distracting him from his mission more than he’d like to admit. If Lake wants to get his savings back, and get out of Scotland, he only has one option – wipe out the competition.

Kirsty Campbell has spent years rebuilding her life after she woke up in hospital in Spain to find her body scarred, and her ex-fiance had run off with all her money. The last thing she needs is a cocky, English soldier-boy trying to ruin all she has left. Her home town is only too happy to help her fight the latest English invasion, although Lake is beginning to sway them with his sex appeal and cut price knickers. With the help of her mother, and the retired ladies of Knit or Die, Kirsty sets about making sure that her shop is the last one standing in Invertary.
