Some couples just click. Others require a hard hat and a stud finder. Tulle and Tulips, Book 3Monday mornings have a reputation for sucking, and today is no different for Burton Anderson. One year ago, his “perfect” life full of prestige, money, success and travel crumbled in the glaring light of betrayal. This morning? This close to making his new construction business a success, a date gone awry has left him handcuffed to a toilet in a housewares store. Naked. And the first customer of the day is coming down his aisle. Planning and shopping for other couples’ Big Day is about as wild and crazy as buttoned-up Leigh Schyuler gets. Until she gets an eyeful of Hearth and Home’s daily special. He’s definitely a “designer” temptation while she’s “off the rack”. But there are risks, and then there are risks. Burton isn’t sure he can once again trust his heart to a woman who holds the power to ruin him. And Leigh discovers too late that indulging in a little no-strings sex is tying her dream of Devoted Love into hopeless knots...Warning: Contains a hard-hatted, hard-bodied hero who’s good with his hands, and a woman who’d like him to build a bridge over her sexual boundaries. Nuts and bolts never had it so good.

Burton Anderson finds himself in a bit of a sticky situation. He awakens handcuffed to a toilet in his current employer’s store.  If he plans to keep his job he must rely on the good will of a beautiful woman.


The last thing Leigh Schyuler expected to find when shopping for another couple’s wedding day was a naked man…a sexy naked man.  Not usually one to indulge in wildness, Burton tempts her to acts of whimsy.  No strings sex is just what the doctor ordered but at the end of the day will these two love and leave or find that happiness begins in housewares?


Nikki Duncan continues her Tulle and Tulips series nicely with Handcuffed in Housewares.  Burton and Leigh have a wonderful chemistry that is not only sexy but fun.  The first books in the series dealt with some heavy issues and it was nice to have some laughs in this installment.  Handcuffed in Housewares still deals with substantial emotions as both Burton and Leigh try to overcome their own issues to find and believe in love but there are plenty of laughs to go around.
