Overview

Ladies, start your search engines…

The closest Arden Walsh has been to a naked male booty in over a year and a half is a DVD ogling session with her friend Lida’s “posse.” Not that anyone could blame a widow with two young daughters. At this stage in her life, a relationship is not in the picture. A little hot sex? Definitely.

After another disaster date leaves more than a bad taste in her mouth, she has to admit it. The only man worth black stilettos and red lipstick is the one for whom she once threw caution to the wind, and never since—not even for her husband. Twelve years, and she can still taste the bittersweet memory of Shane Donner.

In a keystroke, a search engine connects the past with the present. As sparks fly from her fingertips to his, she begins to wonder if a screen full of seduction is enough to forge a future.

This title was previously published but has been revised and expanded for Samhain Publishing.

Warning: Contains explicit language, sexual content, not-safe-for-work instant messages, and fantasizing about Keanu Reeves and the hero (but not at the same time!).

User erectorset1241 has sent you an instant message. Do you wish to accept it?

She'd forgotten to log off her instant messaging program earlier. She rarely used the program, preferring the chat on the phone or through email, so she was rarely online long enough to get soliciting messages from strangers.

Her fingers moved the mouse to hover over the Deny button, to delete the message. Ignore it. With a twist of her wrist, she changed her answer to Accept.

I hear the Come Inn has great midday rates.

She stared at the screen, pulse quickening. The words twisted her stomach, and not totally in dismay. He'd remembered, but why shouldn't he? They'd been his words, way back when.

"We'll end up sneaking around in hotel rooms when we're in our thirties," he'd told her when she said she was going to marry Jason.

"I hope not," had been her reply. "Because that means everything I'm hoping to have in my life will have been a lie."

She'd just turned thirty-four. He'd have turned the same age this past July. She wasn't angry that he was trying to see if she remembered the last words they'd shared. She was furious he'd assume she'd be willing to cheat on her husband.

He didn't know about Jason, of course. Couldn't. He was being his typical self, cocky and arrogant, teasing her into a conversation she knew she shouldn't have. If he thought she was married, he'd be testing her to see how far he could get her to go.

A full minute had passed while she processed his words and thought about deleting them. And yet, when she moved the mouse to the small red "x" at the top of the message window, she couldn't quite do it.

The pure and dirtyfact was she wasn't married any longer, and Lida was absolutely right. Arden needed to get laid. And even now, years later, with a good marriage and a hundred thousand wonderful memories filling her brain, she still had room to remember the brief time she'd spent with Shane.

Good sex--really, really good sex--was hard to forget. Almost as hard to forget as first love. She wouldn't have said she loved him, knew he hadn't loved her, but they had been tied together for that time, had forged a link that had been tenuous but powerful.

It hadn't been love, but it had been something strong enough to make her dream about him.

Arden Walsh has just about struck out in the romance (and even the sex) department. She's a widow with two young daughters and realizes that Shane Donner from way back when might have been the perfect man for her. Let me start by saying I really enjoyed this story. Ms. Hart did a wonderful job creating a tale that was almost like a chick lit novel but with lots of detailed sexy love scenes thrown in. The characters are all great, especially Arden and Shane, and the dialogue top notch. I was pulled into the story from the opening line.yes, it will get your attention. It's a realistic plot line that had me turning the pages because Arden's search for true love sounds plausible. It also had some humor which once again reminded me of a chick lit story. I really wish this story could have been longer so I could have read more about these two characters interacting. That's my only complaint. I haven't read any other books by this author before but this one has definitely piqued my interest and I'll be checking out more. If you're looking for something to read on one of the first chilly nights of the fall, this one is definitely worth checking out. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews
