A Ride On the Wild Side
The last place Catherine MacPherson ever expected to find herself was sitting on a Greyhound bus, handcuffed to a surly bounty hunter, with only a suitcase of her twin sister's flashy, shrink-wrap clothing to wear! Just two hours ago, the respectable schoolteacher was sitting quietly at home when this bi macho hunk crashed through her door, mistook her for her errant Miami showgirl sister, and hauled her off in his strong arms. And no matter how sexy he is, she's furious!
Twins-ha! Sam McKade's the last person to ever fall for that line. He's finally got the gorgeous, leggy redhead just where he wants her-and no matter what outrageous tricks she pulls, he's not letting her get away.The problem is, she's a lot smarter-and sweeter-than he'd expected. And he's got this deep-buried tenderness she hadn't expected. And their kisses are so hot, they just might burn up ... before they sort it all out.

Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
This is a typical romance novel with all of the romance genre cliches, but it was entertaining. Anderson writes with a light hand and well enough, although without much originality.
I reminded myself of the publication date (1998) or some of the plot devices did not work, e.g. fingerprint matching across states probably wasn't possible (?) so the two protagonists could not clear up the identity problem from the start; cell phones would have put the two sisters in contact much sooner, etc.
Listeners who look for explicit sex scenes will find some, but not to the overloaded extent many romance writers feel compelled to write today.
Overall, don't use your last credit on this one, but this book is not a waste early in your annual renewal.
Nothing wrong with the performance. I don't think I'm a fan of Andersen's writing. She's a bit too cutesy for my taste. There were several cliche lines and scenes that I found cringe-worthy and hard to get past. If you like über cheesy romance, you'll probably appreciate this more than I did.
