Harlequin Temptation, Single in South Beach seriesNovember 2003 / Re-released digitally February 2014
One naughty woman…
The sweet, innocent blonde on the dance floor is way out of her league in this hot, singles club. And the minute Renzo Cesare recognizes that, his protective instincts step up to the plate while he tries to rescue her. If that means pretending to be Esme Giles's blind date, well, so be it. But before he can escort her to safety, she starts whispering some not so innocent suggestions in his ear. How is a guy supposed to be noble when all he can think about is hitting the sheets?
One naughty man…
Esme Giles is turning over a new leaf-starting with a seduction. Sure, it's a bold move for her reserved self, but one look at her sexy date and she'll do almost anything to convince this hottie to spend a sizzling night with her. Too bad he's the wrong man! But Renzo's red-hot kisses convince her that she's found the right man…for more than just a night!
And a bed that's just right!
First of all, let me say, I want a Renzo! What a great hero! This sexy Italian guy isn't just a gorgeous body who falls for the heroine of the story. His family values and strong, protective instinct are just as attractive as his good looks. Joanne Rock amazingly brought the sweet together with the sensual and turned up the heat at just the right moments. Esme was a heroine I could relate to in her struggle to remain independent and strong, yet allow herself to let go and be vulnerable in order to fall in love with the right guy. I'll be rushing to snatch up the other books in this series and any others by Joanne Rock. This book earned Five Stars from me!
Happy Reading and Writing!
