Charmed and Dangerous



Bobbie Faye is looking forward to the Lake Charles Contraband Days Festival with balloons, booze and babies in pirate costumes. Instead, her trailer’s flooded, her no-good brother’s been kidnapped, and the criminals are demanding her mom’s tiara as ransom.

Soon Bobbie Faye is committing (unintentional) bank robbery and (fully intentional) carjacking to retrieve her family heirloom. Along comes the hard-muscled, impossibly sexy Trevor, the guy whose truck she just took hostage. Luckily, Bobbie Faye knows how to outsmart angry bears, drive a speedboat, and handle a gun. As for handling Trevor? No gun-shyness there. Now, if only that pesky state police detective, who also happens to be a pissed-off ex-boyfriend, would stay out of her way…

(This book was originally released as Bobbie Faye’s Very (very very very) Bad Day in trade paperback format. The publisher decided to reach out to a larger audience by re-releasing it in mass market size and at a smaller price. The upside? I was able to add content. The downside? The title was so long, plus my three names, and the publisher decided it was just too much type on the front of the smaller paperback and wouldn’t work. They opted to rename it, and unfortunately, that’s not crystal clear from the new covers. It is the same book, slightly enhanced, and better in the mm and online version, in my opinion. I am very sorry for the confusion this has caused some readers. I had asked that Bobbie Faye, Book 1, be put on the cover, but alas, that did not happen.)

“Causey’s hilarious, pitch-perfect debut chronicles one day in the life of 28-year-old Bobbie Faye Sumrall. Causey doesn’t miss a beat in this wonderful, wacky celebration of Southern eccentricity.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This hyperpaced, screwball action/adventure with one unforgettable heroine and two sexy heroes is side-splittingly hilarious. Causey, a Cajun and a Louisiana native, reveals a flair for comedy in this uproarious debut novel, the first in a three-book series. Readers who like the humor of Harley Jane Kozak’s Dating Dead Men, Lisa Lutz’s The Spellman Files, and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series will be thrilled to meet Bobbie Faye. A most entertaining addition to any fiction collection.”
—Library Journal, starred review

“It’s about time women had an Amazon to look up to… Bobbie Faye is a hurricane-force heroine who makes this novel the perfect adventure yarn.”
— The Tampa Tribune

“There are many things to love about this book — the plot, the pacing, the dialogue — but my own favorite element is the characterization… But if you want a short description of this great novel, think Die Hard in the swamp. And Bobbie Faye? She’s a titanium magnolia.”

“If you like Janet Evanovich, if you’re looking for a lot of unlikely action (when is the last time someone you know escaped a burning boat by lassoing an oil rig?), or if you’re simply having a bad day, go out and find Bobbie Faye. She’s an outrageous hoot.”
—The New Orleans Times-Picayune

“Move over Stephanie and Bubbles you’ve got major competition tracking north from the Deep South. Bobbie Faye might have had a very bad day but Toni McGee Causey is going to have a very good year. With Causey’s debut novel (A Griffin Trade Paperback Original), Charmed and Dangerous, Bobbie Faye Sumrall is out to capture both the hearts of spunky women everywhere and the minds of men ready for a challenge.”
— Deadly Pleasures

“This is an action comedy novel that will delight fans of the Ya Ya/Sweet Potato Queens genre. The pacing of the book will take your breath away.”
— The Advocate

“Heroine—or superheroine? Bobbie Faye, Southern, eloquent, kick-ass, highly accomplished and just plain nuts, is a magnet for the most colorful collection of riff-raff and the most sexually compelling males south of Minneapolis. Throw in an unlikely MacGuffin and you’ve got a very, (very, very, very) entertaining book.”
—Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of Dating Dead Men and Dating is Murder

“Hold on for the ride, Bobbie Faye is 100% pure adrenaline! Toni McGee Causey’s exceptional debut novel is a page-turning, side-splitting, hilarious caper, complete with mama bears, explosions, double-crosses, an evil villain, a sexy whip-wielding model, a hot cop, a hotter hostage, and a smart, sassy, crazy heroine. Causey has penned a laugh-out-loud nonstop thriller. Charmed and Dangerous is really (really, really, really) good!”
—Allison Brennan, USA Today and NYT Bestselling author of The Prey, The Hunt, and The Kill

“Bobbie Faye is a true original and Toni McGee Causey a true talent!”
—Melissa Senate, author of See Jane Date and Love You To Death

“I love Charmed and Dangerous by Toni McGee Causey. The tears are still running down my cheeks from laughing. Oh, my. What talent. What verve. What NERVE!”
—Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Spymaster

“If there’s such a thing as “screwball suspense”, Bobbie Faye is its new pinup girl. Charmed and Dangerous is so funny it should come with a warning label: “Do not attempt to eat or drink while reading this book.” A winning combination of an eccentric yet charmingly sassy heroine, a sexy yet baffled hero, slambang action, and page-turning mystery (what will Bobbie Faye destroy next?) make this the perfect book for anyone who enjoys Jennifer Crusie or Janet Evanovich.”
—India Edghill, author of Queenmaker and Wisdom’s Daughter

“Bobbie Faye can get into more and funnier trouble faster than Kinsey Millhone, Stephanie Plum, and that chick who drove the bus in SPEED combined, and there’s nobody I’d rather have for a friend, because you just know that if The Bad Guys were holding you prisoner somewhere and the odds were a hundred to one, Bobbie Faye would still come bust you out. She’s the go-to poster girl for action-adventure chicklit, and even her enemies like her.”
—Rosemary Edghill, author of Bell, Book, and Murder and Met by Moonlight

“An incredible ride with one very determined, sassy, cussing, southern trailer-trash gal. If you think you are having a bad day, you won’t once you read about Bobbie Faye’s! The adventure starts in the first paragraph and does not slow until the last page. I loved this refreshing, extremely funny and sexy story and I know that everyone who reads it will agree with me.”
Romance Junkies

“This hilarious debut is an absolute must read. I couldn’t stop laughing. Bobbie Faye is fantastic and fun.”

“Bobbie Faye is a strong, feisty woman with an attitude who has absolutely no luck but manages to scrape by (barely) and stay alive (barely). She’s a one-woman disaster (it’s not her fault things just happen) who turns more than a few male heads. She’s got a mean, payback attitude, a foul mouth and the heart of an earth mama. In short, DO NOT miss reading Charmed and Dangerous. Oh, and remember to breathe. The action is so fast, the characters are hilarious and the laughter so rampant that you really do need to remind yourself to breathe.”
—Armchair Interviews

“Toni McGee Causey will have you laughing out loud as her insane characters take you on a ride of pure chaos. This book could only be described as a rollercoaster ride with dynamite! You’ll want to keep Charmed and Dangerous around for any bad day you might have!”
—Romantic Inks
