Except before long Trace is making full use of the, uh, amenities with gorgeous Piper. But are the two of them ready to hang a "do not disturb" sign on their suite--for life?

    Not typical Blaze at all.

    Good book however, more like a regular Harlequin and not Blaze. Enjoyable and entertaining.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Yowza! If there were warnings on books, this one would say "burning, scorching, sizzling romance ahead." And if there were comment cards to be sent to authors after you read their books, mine to Jo Leigh about HUSH would say "thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me a story with smoking characters, amusing situations, and hot, hot sex!" Just for the record, I don't always read Blaze romances, and I don't always have to have "whoa baby!" romance in a book to enjoy it. But HUSH has it, I enjoyed it, and I refuse to be ashamed! <BR/><BR/>The first in the DO NOT DISTURB continuity series, HUSH is a story filled with guilty pleasures, uninhibited desires, and the shameless desire to do whatever feels good. In other words, it's like a glass of red wine drunk in front of a roaring fire, or that entire carton of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Monkey that you ate standing in front of the open freezer. A pure, unadulterated delight. <BR/><BR/>To the world, Piper Devon is Paris Hilton, Tara Reid, and all those other "celebrities gone crazy" young twenty-somethings that do what they want, when they want, and never worry about the consequences. Piper, the daughter of multi-billionaire Nicholas Devon, hotel magnate, displays all the qualities of a rich-girl, spoiled heiress. What no one seems to realize is that her enrollment in NYU in hotel management, followed by the opening of her very own hotel, is more than just a whim. Piper wants something new, distinctive, erotic-something that will have nothing to do with her father, his money, or his hotels. <BR/><BR/>So she opens Hush, a hotel that she has no qualms in showing off as a showcase to the young, the wealthy, the opulent, the horny. Hush oozes sex, urges its occupants to leave their inhibitions at home, and answers to your every desire. You can be, do, and have anything you want at Hush, which is Piper's plan. The only thing she didn't prepare for is how much she wants approval-from her father, for being a good businesswoman; from the media, for being something other than the spoiled little rich girl; from Trace Winslow, the man who has made it his business to stop Hush from succeeding to save the Devon family name. <BR/><BR/>Trace and Piper have a past of sorts-she wanted him, he thought she was a bratty child and turned her away. This time around, Piper plans to make it clear as day, that she's all grown-up and knows exactly what she wants-Trace in her bed every evening in the suite she calls home at Hush. When the sheets ignite and tempers flare with this couple, you won't be able to outrun the fire. <BR/><BR/>HUSH is Harlequin Blaze at its best. A new, unique story line, compelling characters, witty dialogue, and steaming sexual tension, Jo Leigh has written a winner. I can't wait to pick up THRILL ME by Isabel Sharpe, the next book in the DO NOT DISTURB series. <BR/><BR/>Thanks, Ms. Leigh, for a totally fun, exciting, and hot story!

    Good Book - Pick up can't put down

    This was a really good book. I hardly find the time to read. This book had me everywhere from skating with the kids to the bathroom all alone. I had to see how the book ended. I anticipate the next book in the series. I want Iwan I want.....
