Hotbed Honey based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Toni Blake is new to the Harlequin Temptation line and what a grand debut it is. The story centers around Max Tate, who needs an attractive woman to help him catch a con man, and the woman who is the bait, Kimberly Brandt. Both are P.I.'s who had ended their business and personal relationship on a bad note three years ago. She is his equal in every way as they toss sizzling comments back and forth and catch the bad guys. They also rekindle their old relationship and discover the truth behind what happened three years ago. I found this book hard to put down and enjoyed it very much. I hope we see more books from this writer.
Toni Blake's fastpaced, spicy Temptation is truly a HOTBED HONEY! Throughout this page-turner, Ms. Blake's wonderful writing talents shine through in her first Harlequin Temptation. She spirals readers on a high-speed roller coaster ride, from the brink of disaster deep into the throes of heated passion and endless love. From strong, well-developed characterzation to snappy dialogue and heart-tugging emotion, booklovers will read HOTBED HONEY in one sitting because they won't be able to put it down. As a former book reviewer for Romantic Times Magazine, I am very impressed and eagerly awaiting Ms. Blake's next Harlequin Temptation.
Private investigator Max Tate plans to catch a thief, who enjoys seducing the hot babes before he steals their jewels. Max believes a wealthy wife will enable him to trap Carlo Coletti. Max turns to the only other PI he trusts, Frank Marsallis for help with fulfilling the parameters of quick-thinking, good instincts, good actress, and drop dead gorgeous. Frank sends Kimberly Brandt, who meets all the parameters, but is unacceptable to Max because he never forgot the last case they worked together. Three yeas ago, their fiery attraction to one another consumed both their hearts. As they work on the Coletti case, Max and Kimberly begin to fall in love, which makes him jealous as she makes progress with their target. Even if they succeed with the case, both fear the end of their pretend marriage because they now love one another. This Temptation lives up to its advertising as Kimberly and Max are ¿sassy, sexy, and seductive¿. The story line is tense, humorous, torrid, and filled with twists and turns that will please fans of private investigator novels as well as romantic suspense lovers. HOTBED HONEY is a hot bed of entertainment that confirms Toni Blake is a talent who has written a homey of a novel. Harriet Klausner
