To say Emily Dugan's life has been a blur is an understatement. She's lost her job, her boyfriend is in love with someone else and he's kicked her out of their apartment.Ready to recoup, she's heading to sunny California to visit her grandmother for some relaxation. But when she finds out Grandy's cooking school has been plagued by a series of mysterious fires, Emily's shocked. Only her surprise turns to instant heat when she meets sexy-as-sin arson investigator Drew Perry.When Emily literally faints at his feet, Drew's certainly flattered. Of course, her collapse may have had more to do with her pregnancy than him! Now, instead of focusing on the firebug on the loose, Drew finds himself fantasizing about Emily…day and night. And what's a guy to do when the woman you want makes it crystal clear she's having the same delicious thoughts?
“I’m worried about you, Em. Is that such a crime?”
Never had Drew encountered such an exasperating, stubborn, sinfully sensual woman. His conscience told him to walk away now and keep going until he’d gained enough distance so he couldn’t look back.
What was it about this particular woman? Why, out of all the women he’d dated—and there’d been plenty—was she the one to make him forget his cardinal rule of absolutely no involvement?
Emily’s eyes darkened, the color reminding him of thunderclouds at midnight. Wild. Untamable. Worthy of a power he deeply respected. A hypnotic, sensual power she effortlessly and unconsciously wielded over him in ways he’d never imagined possible.
He dipped his head, but stopped before his lips brushed against hers. Her warm breath caressed his mouth.
“This is a mistake,” she whispered.
He waited for her to push him away. She didn’t.
“What’s life without a few mistakes along the way?”
She grinned, and her soft laughter made him smile. “Pretty darned boring.”
Have you ever had one of those days when just about everything goes wrong? No matter where you go or what you do, it seems as if a black cloud is following you?
Emily Dugan is having one of those days. In twenty-four hours her life is turned upside down by a series of events that would leave most of us struggling to catch our breath. So when she literally falls at the feet of scrumptious arson inspector Drew, the youngest of the three ultrasexy Perry brothers in my SOME LIKE IT HOT trilogy, she’s certain things have just gone from bad to…better?
Commitment-shy Drew is always game for a short-term relationship, and the hotter the better. But when sassy, seductive Emily keeps turning up the heat to rival the heat wave blanketing the city, even he has a hard time keeping his cool.
I hope you enjoy Drew and Emily’s steamy romance. And be sure to join me next month for Under Fire (Temptation #950), the final story in the SOME LIKE IT HOT trilogy. Until then…
