LOOKS ARE DECEIVING [Erotic Romantic Suspense] All shadows and mystery, Elissa Baker's destiny with the scum of the Earth is a secret. Only Greg can wreck her long-laid path by being Mister Right and refusing to let her go. Restauranteur Greg Moretti is crazy in love with a woman leading a smoke-and-mirrors life. He'll fix that by cooking up some heat, triggering some hunger, and melting the ice-wall around her world. Elissa will have to choose, Greg or the criminal world. Good boys can be bad too, and lethal to the heart. The serendipitous solution to Greg's father's cold-case murder leads somewhere he'd never anticipated. When the mob takes his dessert-kissed goddess from his house, Greg couldn't have guessed someone would die, and no one knew what Elissa could do. Everything changes with the pull of a trigger, and Greg loses Elissa to her fate and a badge. Nothing looks the same after this.** 5 Stars: "Elissa and Greg date initially because of a dare. They end up falling in love. Elissa has difficulty giving up control. Will Greg be able to break through to her core? Greg's family secrets are threatening his security. Will Elissa help him discover the family secrets? This is a breezy read. I could not wait to get home to see what happened next. I loved the ending. I recommend this!" --Ashley Turlington, Review Your Book.** 4.5 Stars: "Elissa's personality is a mystery, especially to Greg. She is presented as a fun loving, normal woman but there is a lot going on inside that intrigues and mystifies. She is a whole package and I loved every bit that I discovered. Greg is a fine man. He knows his responsibilities and can become a wonderful support system for anyone when the need arises. Their coming together was all part of an interesting bet to get back on the childish prank his friends played, but I wasn't prepared for all the simmering heat that their union generated. Elissa and Greg uncover each other's potential during the whole course of their budding relationship and the intensity is evident in the sex scenes. The lovemaking scenes will delight readers who want their zings mixed in perfectly with the ongoing storyline. The secondary characters are mostly integral parts of Greg's past and I loved the banter and camaraderie between them. All the female characters have a great deal of strength and spunk and I liked knowing them. A few sub-plots join in the main one but it is a relief that it doesn't get tangled up. The mystery was decent and I was really looking forward to meeting the villain. Ms. Hart managed to grab my interest with a clever opening and held my interest till the end. All in all, Looks Are Deceiving is a fast-paced, adventure filled story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Nicely Done!" --Mahaira Fatima, Just Erotic Romance Reviews.

Read an Excerpt

"Are you sure there are no holes in your privacy fence?"

"I'm aware of several rather large holes, right at sight level."

She snickered against his shoulder as he swept her body with his hands in a slow exploration, snapping the spandex from her body as if it violated his sacred territory. The small jeopardy of being discovered titillated her.

"This must go. It's in my way."

Elissa giggled, and Greg peeled away the bathing suit, leaving her to cross her arms over her nudity. Before she could suspect his evil motives, Greg snatched her up by her waist and tossed her onto the inflated mattress floating on the water. Elissa shrieked from the surprise, and she smacked a hand over her mouth to keep from drawing the attention of the crowd next door.

He leapt onto the mattress beside her, rocking the boat and causing another explosive laughter from both of them that probably blended into the neighborhood noise.

"Sh," Greg whispered at her feet, his tone sneaky. "They might hear us."

Just gazing down her unclothed body at him caused Elissa a cascade of sensations like a waterfall spinning a paddle wheel. The setting sun made the water droplets sliding down his toasty skin sparkle. He looked reckless, and oh-so libidinous. She had to lick her lips, dried from the moisture of her body shifting downward.

An intent gleam in his eye, he started at her ankles, straddled her legs and began a slow crawl up her body like a predator trapping his dinner.

"It might not be a great idea to make love to me out here, Greg."

He passed her hips, his face inches away from the curls of her sex, placed a feather kiss there, then another kiss on her bellybutton ashe crawled upward. The way his dark-chocolate eyes caressed her so hungrily made her ache.

"I think it's the best idea in the world."

"After last night, I can testify to the fact that I can't keep quiet."

His smile ripened into a full-fledged passion for risk, and he paused to stare at her breasts. "God, I know. It was music to my ears."

Elissa sucked her lips into her mouth, distrusting herself not to giggle aloud. He was so damned cute. If Greg were the Devil, she'd consider a life of sin.

"Irresistible impulse..." she pled aloud in a long moan.

Fully above her now, he smiled, badness and debauchery dancing in his eyes. His hair was wild, his gaze anticipating and eager.

"You seemed like such a good boy when I met you."

Greg descended on her, filled his mouth with her unshielded breast, sending her hands into his hair and causing her to arch and moan and lose all reason. Her knees rose to hug his torso, pressing him against her in case he tried to get away.

"Shh," he demanded around her nipple, the movement of his lips and rush of his breath on her wet flesh sending more bliss and tension through her.

"People might hear you, Elissa.... You're not supposed to cry out, you bad girl. But I'm going to make you do it, anyway."

He descended on her other breast and suckled her until only iron discipline kept her from uttering desperate moans. He made her body ache for him. She caught herself in a tight grip of his damp black hair and had to release him several times at the realization, but he didn't let up on her at all. He did make her cry out more than once beyond her suppression, no matter how much being heard would've embarrassed her.

Greg sat up on his knees between her open knees, his power position. Feeling the roll of the water beneath them added to the intoxication. Seeing him and his conquest smile between her legs rocked her with another shudder.

He stroked the sensitive flesh of her inside thighs. "You should feel the heat coming off you, Elissa. You're scorching hot."

His mere contact in intimate places put her just where he left off when the doorbell rang, on the verge of starvation for him. She didn't know how she'd stay quiet enough not to draw the curiosity of the party guests. She couldn't stay quiet when he touched her like this.

"You could take me into the bedroom now," she muttered between rushed breaths.

Greg shook his head in abject denial, no mercy in his eye. His hand slid to the apex of her thighs, and his thumb stroked through the hair there, sending a new shiver through her. "Not gonna happen that way."

She felt his finger slide down the folds of her pussy with sadistic delay, then he penetrated her, drawing another gasp she couldn't hold back, and he pressed upward in a long glide all the way into her, making her shiver, whimper, and pant.
