Southern Comfort, Savannah Style. . .
Bebe Fitzpatrick's hard upbringing taught her how to take care of herself, how to tell true friends from false, and how to be a good cop. She can also sweet-talk a man like she means it. . .until she stumbles into the arms of a damn sexy Yankee who's gunning for Savannah's favorite shady entrepreneur. . .
As far as Donovan McCabe is concerned, the main obstacle to his investigation is the one thing he can't help wanting in his way. Bebe's smart, sassy, and utterly oblivious to her own appeal. Add the fact that a Boston cop trying to arrest one of Savannah's best-loved citizens is about as popular as the reincarnation of General Grant. What Donovan needs is a better game plan. What he's about to get is southern "hospitality" that'll make his toes curl. . .

Hot and Irresistible by Dianne Castell
Hot and Irresistible is the perfect cold weather read to make you sizzle all over!
Following Dianne's first book in the series, Hot and Bothered, Hot and Irresistible continues the story of four orphaned friends who have learned to trust and depend on each other, no matter the situation.
Bebe Fitzgerald, southern girl and no nonsense cop from her sensible shoes to her work ethics meets her match in Boston cop Donovan McCabe when he comes to Savannah to investigate local businessman, Ray Cleveland.
Not only do the two butt heads over the investigation, but against their instant attraction to each other. As if this wasn't enough to keep the reader glued to their seat, throw in a decades old mystery from the local morgue plus a few ghosts and you have a fun and fascinating read you won't be able to put down.
Full of mystery, surprises and southern charm, not to mention sexy scenes, Hot and Irresistible is a fascinating mixture of everything I love in a good book.
Dianne Castell has outdone herself with this series! Way to go Dianne!

Dianne Castell's Hot and Irresistible is a perfect choice if you're looking for a smart and sassy heroine, a sexy man from out of town, an old and charming southern town with more than a few secrets and sex.
I enjoyed the character of Bebe - - everything from her no-nonsense Hush Puppies shoes to her three beloved cats (yes, serious animal lover here) to her fierce, take-no-prisoners attitude. The attraction between her and new Boston cop Donovan is textbook, sure, but the sparks and electricity between these two literally jump off the page.
But don't think this book is simply a sexy romance. It is, but it's also a "whodunit" as well as a nicely nuanced 30 year old mystery with ghosts and plenty of secrets. Are you interested yet?
I initially chose this book due to the Savannah, Georgia locale. Being from Georgia, I am always interested in books that take place in my home state. Ms. Castell did the lovely old city justice, from her descriptions of the ivy-covered architecture to the social calls to the "ya'll"s and "you hear"s. Savannah is every bit a character in this book as the handful of locals we are introduced to.
While I found this book to be a bit of a slow starter, it got hot quickly and picked up pace from there. Hot and Irresistible is the second book in a series but I found that you don't have to read the first one in order to appreciate this one. Hot and Irresistible will leave you hot and bothered and pining for a Mason jar of sweet tea on a shady porch. If you like your books brimming with mystery and whole lot of descriptive romance, give this book a try. You won't be disappointed!

When Boston cop Donovan McCabe arrives in town, it certainly isn't to visit. Instead, she's there to investigate Mr. Ray Cleveland. Unknown to Bebe Fitzpatrick, she must do her part as a good cop to work with him. Mr. Cleveland is running more than a food business at his local resturant and Donovan is going to prove it. The one thing he does not plan on happening is his attraction to Bebe and how atracted she becomes to him. What happens when one does not want to help the other? Also, there is a thirty year old murder case that Bebe needs to solve.
I loved Hot and Irresistible and wasn't able to put the book aside until I completed it. Ms. Castell has a unique way of bringing the past into this book and making it all come together in the end. It has hot romance with a bit or humor included.

Hot And Irresistible by Dianne Castell brings another sexy story set in the seductive town of Savannah.
Cop Bebe Fitzgerald learned early in life to depend on her friends first and foremost. She puts her full trust in them and will do anything in her powers to help them. Bebe is determined to get to the bottom of a long ago mystery at the former town morgue. Added to this problem, she is assigned a Yankee detective to baby-sit. Seems Detective Donovan McCabe has an agenda that involves someone Bebe knows and loves.
Donovan McCabe is trying to figure out his life after his partner is killed in the line of duty. He thinks this assignment in Savannah will help him sort things out. He is assigned to investigate illegal goings on with local entrepreneur Ray Cleveland. Donovan's first meeting with cop Bebe Fitzgerald has him thinking of hot sultry nights not police procedures.
Donovan and Bebe don't see eye to eye on his investigation of Mr. Cleveland. But that doesn't stop them from keeping their hands off each other. As their attraction grows will their relationship survive the mystery unfolding around them at the former morgue?
Hot And Irresistible is another delightful, funny and sexy story by Dianne Castell. I can always depend on a great read, filled with hot and spicy chemistry splashed with a wicked sense of humor. I highly recommend any book by this author.

Bebe was forced to grow up fast. She learned quickly who were friends and who were foes. She is very talented at using her charm on the opposite sex. When a cop named Donovan gets a dose of Bebe, he knows that he will never be the same. He should be concentrating on a case, but the only thing he sees is Bebe. The more he tries to do what he should, the more tempting Bebe becomes.
The title says it all. I had so much fun reading this book that I now know what a few of my girls will be getting for Christmas.

Four mysterious adoptions, gambling casinos, boats, a squeaky clean judge, a missing baby, suspicious deaths, and packed with action, Hot and Irresistible is a fun escape.Was this review helpful?

Savannah police detective Bebe Fitzpatrick is a good cop mostly because of her street smarts she learned in her rough childhood. However, Bebe is unhappy when her boss teams her up with Boston cop Donovan McCabe in town investigating a local hero, Ray Cleveland who owns a restaurant on Thunderbolt Island where she likes to eat. Bebe and Donovan are attracted to each other inside the bedroom but detractors on the case as they disagree about Mr. Cleveland running things besides food.
Bebe also gets involved with a three decade old cold case murder and issues about who her parents are. However, the worst problem facing Bebe is that damn Yankee invader she baby-sits for as she wants him to do more than just diaper him at a time when their inquiry leads to more murders and attempts on their lives.
More a romance between a couple fighting the War of Northern Aggression in her mind while in his is babysitting is great. There is an excellent supporting police procedural subplot. The story line is fun as the banter between the "sitter and the baby" is humorous as she is aggressive and angry and he is amused. However, readers who prefer taut suspense throughout their tales should pass as HOT AND BOTHERED is predominantly a romance between two cops whose investigation serves as a matchmaker of sorts.
