Overview

Sexy contemporary romance novel. The dialogue and verbal sparring sparkle between the two with no other characters in sight - except of course Aunt Mathilda!

She's got MALE!

There was nothing left for business woman Roxanne Murdock to do but wiggle into a slightly too small harem-girl outfit and deliver a belly-gram - because her company was more reliable than the US Mail - and a greeting had been ordered!

She never thought she'd end up trapped by the 'storm of the century' over the New Year's Holiday - with the object of the greeting: handsome banker, Bram Tyler.

But there they were. Together. Alone. And neither could deny the attraction. When the power went down - there was only one thing to do: shared bodily warmth!

But what happens when the power comes back on and the storm outside ends?

Editorial Reviews

On line review - Cathy Sova
"What a treat - the re-release of an old favorite! That's just as fresh now as it was when it first came out. The dialogue and verbal sparring ...is a standout with sexual tension in spades."
West Coast Review of Books - Marilyn Lowery
"Elaine Raco Chase - one of the bankable ladies of romance."
On Line Review - Patti Greck
When it comes to contemporary romance, Elaine is the best! Her characters are everyday people; you can identify with them. Through cleverness and wit, she pulls us through the trials and realizations of human emotions and relationships - with all of its flaws. It's a wonderful journey of desire, discovery and love - a great love story that will hook you with its humor and reel you in with its spice!
Online Review - Jan Taylor
This is one of my all time favorite books, a "keeper", so Kindle readers are in for a huge treat. You'll love Elaine's plot, characters, style, romance, and humor. I know I will never be disappointed in any book purchased by her. You will love SD!
Sling Words Blog - Joan Reeves
If you like to read the humorous banter between a man and woman that's reminiscent of the best of filmdom's romantic comedies, you'll like Special Delivery. Ms. Chase has a real gift for presenting heroines who are intelligent women and who can hold their own with any man. Roxanne can out-think and outsmart just about any guy, but the handsome and personable Bram is just as clever.

Meet the Author

If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances - some more explicit than others - you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: "cat & mouse" - "slow burn" - "hot and steamy" - "highly addicting" - "solid characters & lots of humor" - "amazing reads!"

I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren't looking for a man - until the right one comes along!

And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don't know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

I also write erotic mystery/thriller's and the Agatha Christie nominated non-fiction "How to write the Amateur Detective Novel" which is in the FBI Forensic Library at Quantico.

    A Great Read for Romance Fans

    This was an enjoyable read with likeable characters that had definite chemistry. I loved the cozy winter setting. Elaine Raco Chase is a fresh voice in contemporary romance and I'll be getting more of her books for some fun escape reading.

    Loved it!

    With a touch of sophistication, plenty of sizzling sex, and a liberal dose of humor, this story poses the age-old question: Is there such a thing as love at first sight? After reading Roxanne and Bram's story, I'm thinking there is.

    Audio Book Review Elaine Raco Chase¿s work is perfectly suited t

    Audio Book Review
    Elaine Raco Chase’s work is perfectly suited to the audiobook form, her conversation is so alive, so quick witted and responsive that you will feel as if you are overhearing the interaction from your seat.  This book flips the traditional “romance” feel on its ear: Bram is the one who is open, direct and first to admit to being smitten with Roxanne.  While Roxanne is more reserved, dragging her Pullman car of baggage and fear from her last relationship forward. 




    Bram is the vice president of the bank that extended Roxanne a loan for her business: telegrams delivered in costume.  When her employee couldn’t make her assignment, Roxanne steps in to fill the appointment: a Belly-Gram that the employees of the bank have ordered to celebrate Bram’s new promotion.  Roxanne appears and presents a sensual belly dance that impresses everyone, especially Bram.  




    Unfortunately for both Roxanne and Bram, the mild snowfall turns into a massive blizzard, and they are stranded in the bank while Minneapolis digs out.  Then the sparks begin to fly.  Slowly but surely Bram convinces Roxanne that there is no “standard time frame” for falling in love, and taking the chance is more than worth it all. 




    Like all of the books by this author, the characters are well defined, voiced and always clever.  Conversational patois and pacing are among the best out there that I have read, with moments that will have you laughing out loud or reaching out to whap someone in the back of their head for being so stubborn.  The chemistry in this book was slower to grow than in others, but that just made the scenes that much more steamy for the palpable sexual tension.  




    The dual narrations of Destiny Landen and Lee James worked well for the characters: Lee has a voice that is fine-grit sandpaper smooth, and always has the hint of a smile behind it, while Destiny manages to fall into a voicing for Roxanne that is fitting and pleasant. I particularly liked the musical interludes between chapters, they enhanced rather than distracted from the storyline.  I did have a few moments with some mispronounced words, but those were minor and did not distract overall from the storyline.  I will admit that I am a fan of this author’s work, and really do enjoy her work translated into the audiobook format.  




    I received an audiobook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
