Meet the Author

Arizona author Vicki Lewis Thompson's natural element is heat. Her first publishing success while still in pigtails was a weather rhyme for the local newspaper: "The sky is blue/but I am not/I love the sun,/I love the hot."

Small wonder that some years later Vicki sold her first romance to Harlequin's steamy Temptation line. After writing nearly eighty books for Harlequin and other publishers, the bestselling author still gravitates toward the heat, including Harlequin Blaze titles.

A finalist numerous times for Romance Writers of America's RITA award, Vicki has won the Desert Rose's Golden Quill Award and has been honored by Romantic Times and Affaire de Coeur. Vicki also became a New York Times bestseller when her book Nerd in Shining Armor from St. Martins caught the fancy of Kelly Ripa, who promoted it through her Reading with Ripa Book Club in 2003, with many successful Nerds following.

Prior to selling her first book to Harlequin and finding her bliss, Vicki tried on other careers for size. Teaching English proved too restrictive when she discovered she didn't like being trapped in a classroom any more than the students did. Journalism seemed like a better idea, except that she kept getting assigned to scary stories like rattlesnake milking or parachute jumping.


Finally, her husband suggested she write a romance, which she took as a fine testimonial to their life together. Even better, the career was a perfect fit. Writing romances provides freedom from a schedule without fear of imminent death!


Besides writing, which she's quite passionate about, Vicki's favorite activities are traveling and laughing. Marriage to her indomitablehusband, He Who Journeys Without a Map, has provided ample doses of both. Now that the kids are grown and Vicki has a laptop, she's finally positioned to combine all three of her passions. The trip has just begun!

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Harlequin calls this the Blaze line for a reason, and all you have to do is pick up a copy of TALKING ABOUT SEX to see why! Vicki Lewis Thompson has written another steamy winner, one that takes no prisoners and leaves no sensual stone unturned. <BR/><BR/>Katie Peterson is a radio DJ with an interesting job. Monday through Friday nights, after the nine o'clock news, her job is to host Talking About Sex, a radio show devoted to all things sexual. When her guest turns out to be Dr. Janice Astorbrooke, things really get interesting. Discussing the sexual symbolism in architecture, Katie can't help but be drawn into conversation about the high-rise being built next to the KRZE studios. The fact that Jess Harken of Harken Construction is in charge of building it only adds to her mix of misery and come-uppance-Jess was the boy who turned down her sexual offers on prom night all those years ago, and there's no time like the present to let him know exactly how she feels. The fact that she gets to broadcast her scathing innuendos on the airwaves only adds to her glee. <BR/><BR/>For Jess, he's always found Katie's show funny and interesting-until the night she starts suggesting that any man building a forty-story building must be compensating for something sexual-wise. Sure, he remembers Katie, even remembers how and why he turned down her offer on prom night. But he and Katie are adults now, and if he wants to ask her out-strictly to get her into bed to prove that there is nothing wrong with him in the slightest in that department-it's his business. When Katie takes him up on his offer-sex, no-strings-attached-Jess feels like he's died and gone to heaven. The only problem is, keeping his feelings out of the picture is turning out to be a whole lot harder than he'd planned. <BR/><BR/>As Katie and Jess experiment with some of the advice she dishes out nightly from the Kama Sutra, these two tough-minded individuals discover that the sparks between them never went out when it comes to sex. Now that their hearts are creeping into the picture, things have gotten a little more complicated. Now they're not just TALKING ABOUT SEX-they're edging towards love. <BR/><BR/>Ms. Thompson has written another winning Blaze story-hot, passionate, full of steam, with an entertaining couple and story at it's center. I enjoyed not only Katie and Jess and their bickering, but the back-story as to why Jess turned Katie down all those years ago, and why Katie is so determined to save the station from relocating. <BR/><BR/>Another steamy winner, TALKING ABOUT SEX is sure to please!

    Fun, Hot and Explosive!

    Plain and simply, this was a great and fun read. Katie and Jess have a past, but the first time around they just didn't make it. So when Katie discovers Jess is the guy who can destroy her grandparents home which now houses her radio station, well let the games begin and the third world war! Their love story is truly a battle of wills and passion? Will they kiss and make up? You'll just have to read this wonderful story to find out! Book Description: It's Katie Peterson's job to be a mouthy DJ, but being mouthy just got personal. Jess Harkins has started construction on a sixty-story office tower next to Katie's quaint local radio station. She'd hate his building anyway ¿ who needs another high-rise? But Katie especially dislikes having her view blocked by the guy who turned down the chance to be her 'first.' So it's time for a little payback¿. Jess always got a laugh at Katie's irreverent on-air comments. He'd even thought of asking her out¿for old time's sake. But now Katie's barbs are directed at him ¿ implying that any man driven to build a structure this high is obviously compensating for something¿. Jess has only one thing to say to Katie, and it isn't something he can just phone in. It's time to turn the radio off¿and turn Katie on!

    Borderline Porn...

    This book was, in my opinion, borderlining on pornography. I know, the title should have given me a clue, but I thought a story about a radio talk show host would have more of a story and not quite as much explicit sex. To me, the 'candle scene' was the worst. The story could have been so much better if more time had been spent developing the characters and a little less on describing their sexual activities. And whatever you do, don't get the audio book. The narrators are TERRIBLE!
