Overview

Samara Layton needs a pot of gold. Her community outreach organization in Washington, D.C. is in dire financial straits. As executive director, it's up to Samara to rescue the non-profit organization from bankruptcy, and time is running out. As a last-ditch resort, she seeks help from her estranged mother, world-renowned fashion designer Asha Dubois. In exchange for her mother's financial assistance, Samara agrees to model in Asha's spring fashion show in New York City. She gets more than she bargained for when she steps onto the runway and into the smoldering gaze of the sexiest man she's ever seen. Life has taught Samara to be skeptical of all men, so she's convinced Marcus Wolf is up to no good when he asks her out after the fashion show. When she rudely turns down his dinner invitation, she has no idea that she will soon need his help to rescue her business. And little does she know that Marcus is the man who will take her body to heights of ecstasy, and ultimately claim her heart and soul... Prominent civil rights attorney Marcus Wolf is in New York City on an important business trip. Attending a fashion show is not on his itinerary, until a friend talks him into it. From the moment Samara Layton steps onto the runway in a breathtakingly sheer gown, Marcus is captivated. When their eyes meet, the electricity between them is enough to light up all of Manhattan. But while Marcus would like nothing more than to seduce the exotic beauty, he has no interest in pursuing a serious relationship with her. All his life, women have brought him nothing but heartache-starting with his very own mother, who betrayed him in the worst imaginable way. This confirmed bachelor definitely isn't looking for love. But when Samara comes to him for help, she makes him an offer he can't possibly refuse....

One of Maureen's best. Maureen is by far my favorite author of non fantasy (vampires, science fiction) romance novels. I love the way she brings the characters together. She makes you think that these types of people could actually exist. Thanks to Maureen for not disappointing once again!

I enjoy Maureen Smiths writing style, but this wasn't my favorite novel, it was still a great read! Talk about Hot & Steamy! The chemistry between these characters carried the right amount of tension, attraction and raw animalistic lust. Mrs. Smith establishes a great passion in this story. I enjoyed the role of the supporting characters and the drama and/or conflicts they brought to the story. Mrs. Smith has a gift for making you wish you were the main character experiencing these sexual escapades without crudeness. I believe the hopeless romantic readers will enjoy this novel, as well as those who can appreciate a lil' spice in their lives. Keep 'em coming, Mrs. Smith.

I've only read one other book, Whatever You Like, by Ms. Smith which I enjoyed immensely so I borrowed this book from a Nook Friend. It was such a good read that I purchased it before I was done with it...along with all the others in the series. Can't wait to read the other Wolf Pack stories in the future! Ms. Smith is now on my must-buy list.

I loved this book!! Maureen Smith is becoming one of of my favorite romance authors. I was so excited to finally read Samara and Marcus's story. Since the book was just rereleased I read about these two in Ms. Smith's other books. I was not dissapointed!! The story was great!! Ms. Smith knows how to write hot and sexy scenes. I can't wait for more of the Wolf Pack.

After reading two awful romance novels, this was absolutely a delight. Ms. Smith had me captured from chapter one, I could not put this book down. I usually don't care for novels when the main characters are in the bed before the second chapter, but because this story was so well written it did not take away from the the build up of the romance. Samara and Marcus characters were well developed and the loves scenes had so much PASSION....wheew I had to take a break. This is a good romance novel for you passionate lovers out there.

The thing I love about Maureen Smith's books is withoh or without the steamy scenes, you still get a great book. I love this book so much, I own all versions of it - the original print version, the re-vamped ebook, and the print version of the ebook. As with any of this author's efforts, Marcus and Samara's story keeps you engaged from page one. I did not discover Ms. Smith until 2011 when my daughter loaned me A Recipe for Temptation (Michael Wolf's story). I've been hooked ever since. Taming the Wolf was next. He is my favorite Wolf brother/cousin. I make a point to go back to this book at least once a year. Maureen is an extraordinary storyteller. I love this and all her books.

This book is so off the chain. The sex scenes are to die for. The book hooks you from the beginning to the end. Maureen Smith did an excellent job. You can just see yourself and your mate being the main characters acting out the exotic love scenes.
