Overview

Her mama always said the women in their family were hotblooded…

And it’s been causing Brooke Donovan trouble her whole life. But it wasn’t until her mother took on the most powerful man in Honey Creek, Texas, that Brooke truly realized the daughter of the town whore didn’t stand a chance. When she left, it was supposed to be for good. But now, thanks to her late husband’s deal with their hometown, she’s back in the last place on earth she wants to be. Temporarily. As soon as her debts are paid off, she’s outta here. Until in walks the one man who can make her rethink everything.

Dr. Jack Silver fixes things. So, when he learns his uncle is responsible for Brooke losing her husband, his sense of honor drives him across Texas to make amends. Instead of a broken woman, though, he finds a gorgeous, feisty physician’s assistant trying to survive in a town that wants her gone. She also has a mile-high fence built out of pride—and a clinic that’s at risk of going belly up. She may not want his money, but the clinic? He can fix that. He just never expects that in setting Brooke back on her feet, he’ll be swept right off his own.

Warning: Contains a hot-blooded woman, a man who really likes that about her, a town with a long memory, and a cappuccino machine that makes it all worthwhile.

Anyone who has read a review of mine knows that relationships, and relationships done WELL, is my hot button. Erin Nicholas has not failed me and this is the reason she continues to be one of my auto buy authors. In Hotblooded our hero has a true hero complex and our heroine has a deeply held sense of inferiority. Widow Brooke Donovan is a physician's assistant working in her late husband's clinic in little Honey Creek, Texas. She's miserable and biding her time until the end of her contract. ER doctor Jack Silver has a check burning a hole in his pocket and a perceived wrong to make right before he can head back to the big city of San Antonio. Starting out with a bang the story actually shifts gears to a slow, intense simmer - with the occasional boil breaking out. Rife with misunderstandings and good intentions gone wrong Brooke and Jack stumble their way through a relationship and into a deeply satisfying HEA. While I love small towns Hotblooded fairly accurately depicts the drawbacks of everyone knowing everything about everyone else. Brooke has a tough history in the town and has justified reservations about being involved with Jack at any level. Poor Jack is totally clueless and continues to push Brooke's buttons. It's a joy to watch a woman who has totally locked herself down begin to open up. And it's wonderful to watch a man who feels the need to fix everything in general become aware of how personal his 'mission' with Brooke is. The sex is wonderfully intense and emotional. It moves the story forward rather than cropping up simply because it's been 'x' pages and there should be sex now. A small cast of secondary characters make the story richer and planted a seed of hope that we will see at least one more story from this world. Though we mostly meet Jack's brother David by phone his character is strong enough that I hope I'll see his story next. Thank you Ms. Nicholas for delivering a rich, satisfying story filled with warmth, humor and love.

Erin Nicholas tells a story that keeps you interesting from start to finish. There is a wonderful chemistry between the hero and heroine that I just want to keep reading and wishing it didn’t come to an end because I could not get enough. I laughed, I cried, and sometimes I was doing both at the same time as the main characters try to put the past behind them and not worry about what other people think. Brooke Donovan has tried so hard to live a quiet life. Her late husband had made a financial agreement with their hometown, and now, she has to go back to that small town in Texas to repay them. She hated living there because everyone compared her to her mother, so she has no plans of staying any longer than the amount of time that is necessary. She will work as a physician’s assistant at the clinic, which will pay off her debt and then she is gone for good. When unexpected news causes her to realize that she may not be able to fulfill her agreement she’s not sure what she will do, but she is determined that she will find a way to prove to the people of the town that she is dependable and keeps her promises. Dr. Jack Silver has felt responsible for the death of Brooke’s husband since he found out that his uncle was the one that caused his death. His honor has him offering to help Brooke any way that he can, but he never expected to find a strong woman who will not accept anything he has to offer. She is full of so much pride that she will not tell him what he can do for her to lessen her burdens. When he finds out that the clinic is in danger of closing because there is no longer an acting doctor he decides that that is the best way to help Brooke. He will help her get the clinic back on its feet and then he can go home without having a guilty conscious. He doesn’t plan on the feelings that he has for Brooke. Will Brooke want him to stay?

I loved this book! Just when I think her stories cannot get any better, Erin Nicholas amazes me again. This love story has a hero and heroine that, despite their baggage, are adorable. I believe the characters acted and reacted much like I would in the same circumstances; making me feel like I was part of the story, rather that an observer. I love that Erin Nicholas's voice is relatable and her wit is infectious. I often caught myself laughing at the banter between characters (and the characters' thoughts as well). I highly recommend this book. I recommend you read all her books. But once you read this one, I'm sure that will go without saying
