I've heard that this is pretty common. It's a *safe* place for her to *practice* flirting and such. You should sit her down and talk about what is and isn't inappropriate. You should also talk to your husband about where to draw the line. He should not allow anything that he's uncomfortable with.
For example, if she comes and sits in his lap, he should get up and firmly tell her that she is too big for stuff like that.
It's a fine line. And a difficult one to walk. Let her know that you're both there for her to talk to about boys or anything that's going on with her. Don't shame her about her behaviour, but make sure that it's clear that certain things are unacceptable.
Hopefully someone else has more first hand advice for you.
Good luck :)

thanks.. well she is 14 now and step dad yes for lil over four years now .. and just like denikka said she sits on his laps.. but he does tell her nicely she is a lil to old for that .. she always hugging him .. she does have big boobs already so maybe i think that is why she likes hugging .. and some things that are not so obvious like she always wants to wrestle and just the way she smiles .. cant explain it .
