Overview

New York Times bestseller Zane takes readers around all the bases in this spicy new erotic novel about two women, four men, too many love triangles, and all the sexy drama Zane’s fans have come to expect from their favorite author.

Zane is nothing less than a phenomenon. With a stack of bestselling erotic novels to her credit, a publishing imprint under her direction, a television series on Cinemax, and a Hollywood feature film in the works, she has become an unstoppable force. Now, with The Hot Box, she returns to the page for another steamy romp in the sheets.

Two women plus four men equal nothing but game time, especially when they get caught up in a hot box, that’s all about the playing. Milena, a veterinarian and born-again virgin who hasn’t been touched by a man in ten years, finds herself entangled in a love triangle between New York Yankee Jacour Bryant and a handsome stranger named Yosef. On the other hand, there’s Lydia, who doesn’t know the meaning of no. She uses sex to get what she wants—and what she wants is more, more, and still more. She lives with Glenn, but she’s getting busy with Glenn’s best friend, Phil. When everything—and everyone—comes together, the sparks fly, lighting up The Hot Box like the Fourth of July.

With her novels selling off the charts and her name known from coast to coast, Zane shows no signs of slowing down. Her legions of faithful fans are sure to get all hot and bothered about The Hot Box .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title takes Max Remy, new member of Spy Force, and her best friend, Linden, into the training of young spies. Hoping to impress Alex Crane, the spy Max most admires, Max finds herself making mistake after mistake in basic training. And it does not help that Alex has been put in charge of Max and Linden's training. Max despairs of ever impressing Alex, and when she and Linden are asked to attend the Annual Spy Awards, Max's hopes for redemption are again crushed when she finds out that her role is little more than waitress to the elder spies. However, all of the Spy Force is unaware that the evil Mr. Blue has wicked plans in store for the Spy Force. It falls to Max to figure out the nightmare vortex and to save Alex from Blue's clutches. This will probably be a fun read for most younger readers, but its believability factor is seriously lacking. I suspect that more able readers will quickly leave this series behind for the "Spy High" series or the "Alex Rider" mysteries, which combine more realistic characters with an engaging story, which this one lacks because so many of its technological premises cannot be taken seriously. 2005, A Paul Wiseman Book/Simon & Schuster, Ages 8 to 12.

Gr 4-6-Eleven-year-old Max Remy-scruffy, klutzy, and annoyed at her life-again finds herself the unlikely savior of the world in this third volume in the series. After (just barely) passing her first sessions of Spy Force training, she and her friend Linden, on whom she has an ill-concealed crush, are sent on what Max hopes will be an important mission. However, they turn out to be waiting tables at a grand awards banquet for the world's good-guy spy teams. When her boss discovers that Max has accidentally carried a fake security badge onto the secret island where the ceremony is being held, the possibility arises that the dastardly Mr. Blue has found a way to destroy all of the spies at once by bringing a sleeping volcano to life. The story, in which every plot turn threatens the entire world, would seem very much at home in a Saturday-morning cartoon, as would most of the characters. But it's all in good, if shallow, fun, and more volumes in the series are on the way.-Walter Minkel, New York Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
