Beloved romance author Linda Cajio delivers a sinfully sexy tale about the sparks that ignite when a business proposition takes a steamy turn.
Jess Brannen adores practical jokes, which is why she and her friends plan a raucous bachelorette party at a male strip club in Atlantic City for an unsuspecting bride-to-be. But the next morning, the joke is on Jess: She wakes up next to Nick Mikaris, the renowned architect who she had hoped would hire her landscaping company. An intense night of passion is not the sort of pitch meeting she had in mind.
Nick Mikaris isn’t one to mix business with pleasure, but he’s willing to make an exception in Jess’s case. Nick is tempted by Jess’s work proposal—and by the captivating woman herself. Touching Jess is delicious and addictive, but she seems determined to ignore the undeniable attraction between them. Now Nick, ever the practical architect, must convince Jess that they have what it takes to design a long and lasting life together.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Reluctant Countess, Wild Rain, and Silk on the Skin.

Jess Brannen and her friends have been playing jokes on each other for years. A bachelorette party to a male strip club in Atlantic City may be Jess's best joke ever but the tables quickly turn on Jess. Exhausted from her work load, an empty stomach and a few too many drinks make Jess the next target. Her friends help her to her room, but the room belongs to Nick Mikaris...he’s a friend of Jess’s friend. Jess awakes the next morning to find herself being spooned by a man...a man she has a very important business meeting with next week. A man that holds the next step in her landscaping business's future in his hands. Nick Mikaris has come to Atlantic City to confront his baby brother about his career choices. After a difficult night of arguing that his brother doesn’t need to strip to pay for law school, Nick is happy to land in his hotel room. Last thing he ever expected was to wake up with the beautiful woman he saw at the strip club last night. For the benefit of Jess’s business and career, she must convince Nick that she is a serious business woman and can handle the landscaping contract. Nick is completely captivated by the sexy Jess Brannen but isn’t sure they can keep it just business and without some serious pleasure. Both Jess and Nick have recently gone through very bad divorces. Jess is completely gun shy when it comes to men. Now the tables are turned can Nick convince Jess that this is a proposal she can’t refuse? Strictly Business is a fun and entertaining story. Jess is definitely going to take some serious persuasion and watching Nick step up to the task makes this a superb romance to warm your heart. I found this book to be an easy, enjoyable read and would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a cute, enjoyable romance. This copy of Strictly Business was given to me by Random House Publishing Group in exchange for a honest review. This fun book came out in stores today, Feb. 11, 2013.
A wonderfully different twist on a hot romance. It takes a special kind of author to keep a romance book hot while making me laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and did not want to put it down!
Pretty good book
