Jackpot! No one had needed to win the lottery more than Ashley Kavanagh, and she planned to enjoy every penny of her unexpected windfall--starting with a seven-day cruise to the Caribbean. But it wasn't until a ship mix-up paired her with her ex-husband that things really started to heat up. She knew she was better off without Michael's womanizing ways, but constant exposure to his well-muscled chest and to-die for lips left her feeling the burn. Michael Kavanagh had hoped this cruise would help him relax, but when he walked in on his nearly naked ex-wife, everything suddenly became uncomfortably tight. Sharing a cabin with Ashley certainly wouldn't be smooth sailing--she acted as if she'd much rather throw him overboard than listen to the truth about what happened two years ago--but deep in his heart Michael knew love would be their lifesaver.

This book was hilariously funny, bonemeltingly sexy and utterly outrageous! The character Michael is unbelievably hot!
Give a cheer for Ms. Smythe. She gets high marks on all accounts for this piece. Entertaining with a unique plot, the characters in this book will keep the reader entertained with intelligence and wit. Thank you.
Ashley and Michael Kavanagh divorced two years ago over her mistrust of him but both insist to themselves and to his sister and her best friend Kim that they are over the other. Each one plans to marry someone else and Kim is sad because she knows they still love one another. Realtor Ashley has had a terrible day when her car broke down as she was to meet a client and subsequently learns that her furnace caused a fire in her home. . Her only hope for salvation is the lottery draw that she has faithfully played using the anniversary of her first date with Michael and her wedding day as her lucky numbers. Her bad day turns around when she hears the winning ticket is one of her lucky numbers. Michael happens to be the other winner. Kim arranges a cruise vacation for Ashley and Michael, but fails to tell either that they will share a ship let alone a cabin. Though they squabble, both realize they still love the other, but obstinately neither wants to admit it for fear of rejection and ridicule. Kim¿s blatant matchmaking looks doomed to failure. HOT NUMBER is an amusing contemporary romance that leaves the audience chuckling at some of the antics of the lead couple and Kim. However, Ashley comes across as spoiled as she never takes the time to find out what really happened, but instead J¿accuse Michael and walked. Though Kim is a female Machiavellian, fans will understand her tactics and applaud them as a last ditch desperate Hail Mary pass. Harriet Klausner
