Pretty Bad
by Shirley Jump

Finding The Beefcake In Cheesecake

Madison Worth may be your average over-the-hill, overpaid top model, but she is not a diva. The cake throwing incident at the New York Fall Fashion Show? Completely justified. It wasn't her fault Kate Moss's face got in the way. But the fallout has her deep in social Siberia—literally—on a dairy farm in podunk, Massachusetts. Why? To get a job of course! As spokesmodel for the Cheese Pleese Company. (Talk about eating humble pie.) And her new boss, Jack Pleeseman, leaves a lot—six-foot two inches worth—to be desired...

Rugged and tanned in a deliciously hard-earned way, not to mention runway gorgeous, Jack Pleeseman wants to overhaul his 160-year-old family business. After some lengthy research in the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, he's found the ideal candidate for a spokesmodel. But after running his eyes up her 20-story legs, what he finds is a beautiful, tall, spoiled rich girl in a need of a major attitude adjustment. A farm could be just the charm school to set her straight. Trouble is, the cocks are crowing, the cows are moo-ing, and sexy Jack can't help from wooing...
