Private detective Harry McGlade is on the prowl, looking for a one-night stand. Or, in McGlade's case, a five-minute stand.
When he finds a sexy lady at his local bar, he thinks he has a chance with her.
But she isn't alone. There's a guy with her. A guy with a gun whom she's desperately trying to get away from.
When the local mafia becomes involved with McGlade's tryst, things start going bad.
Then they go really bad when a baby comes into the picture. And the only one McGlade can turn to for help is his old partner, Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels.
Babe on Board is an 11,000 word novella (about 50 pages long), written by bestselling Kindle authora J.A. Konrath, and Ann Voss Peterson (FLEE, SPREE, THREE, HIT, EXPOSED, and NAUGHTY).
It's a hysterically funny, and sometimes poignant, look at sex, relationships, pregnancy, and fatherhood. It also has guns and violence and criminals and double-crosses and twists. Ann and J.A. are confident that it will appeal to fans of mysteries, thrillers, and even romance (as long as the reader keeps tongue firmly in cheek).
If you are a more sensitive (or adventurous) reader, this handy scale rates specific categories from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) to give you some idea if this is your kind of book.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
SHE WAS AN INDIAN, THE 7-11 KIND, NOT THE CASINO KIND
Konrath skips the gore in this one, but hangs on to the sophomoric humor (that's a good thing) and the sexiness. Not much in the way of actual sex, just sexiness. This is so funny, that while walking the dog, I almost fell to my knees laughing. Phil Gigante is as funny as they come in the reading of this. I don't think Peterson wrote any of this, he wrote the excerpt of the book, Flee, which is the last 25 minutes of this recording. Yes, the story only takes an hour, which is the most disappointing part of this recording. If you like sophomoric humor like I do, almost ever line is hilarious, get this, you will love it.
YOUR CHARMING, AS CHARMING AS HERPES
AFTER YOU, I DECIDED TO BECOME A LESBIAN.
None of Konrath's gross twisted creepy writing but funny McGlade adult humor, my husband and I were cracking up!
