Wicked Heat (A Feel the Heat novel) by Nicola Marsh


At his majesty's service…or so he thinks.With her job and her self-respect on the line, advertising executive and reformed bad-girl Zoe Keaton heads to Italy to score a vital business deal. Unfortunately, the guy she needs to convince is the wickedly hot--and totally closed-off--Prince Dominic Ricci, who has no intention of listening to her pitch. So with the queen's help, Zoe does the only thing that will get the job done. She kidnaps him.


But the joke's on her when the queen's matchmaking strands Zoe and the prince on the royal family's secluded island. Zoe vows not to mix business with pleasure--and prove that she's more than a spoiled rich girl who bought her way to success--but when the prince turns up the heat, the chemistry between them ignites. Is it just sizzling sex, or could an Italian prince with a tragic past fall for a take-no-prisoners American?

    Zoe Keaton has always been a non conformist. She is in Italy to give a presentation to Prince Dominic Ricci. She has to change his mind on signing a contract with her company's most important client. She needs to succeed. What they don't know is that they are being set up. Queen Catarina is a matchmaker. The desire between Zoe and the Prince is very hot. Can their physical attraction lead to love? Will this business deal break any relationship? Nicola Marsh has written a passionate and erotic story. Zoe and Dom are both strong, stubborn and determined to get what they want. Their passionate encounter is extremely hot. The Queen's meddling is a nice humorous touch. I love her plan to trick the lovers. Wanton Heat is a fast-paced, enjoyable story. It is a perfect addition in the Feel the Heat series.

    If you like short and seriously steamy romances, Entangled¿s Bra

    If you like short and seriously steamy romances, Entangled’s Brazen line has something for you. I’ve only read a handful of these titles, but I’ve enjoyed each and every one of them in their own way. Wanton Heat might not have been my favorite of the titles, but there’s no denying that it was an entertaining (and HOT) read.

    The synopsis for Wanton Heat totally hooked me. I am a fan of “famous person/regular person” romances and I loved the “kidnapping” aspect of this book. Was the plot far-fetched? Of course. Did that make it less fun? Not even close. As an aside, I have to mention how much I enjoyed the character of the meddlesome queen. She was a keeper.

    I didn’t love Zoe and Dominic didn’t really grab my attention, but they worked well as a couple. Their sexual chemistry was undeniable. The heat was present from their first meeting. They had a good banter and steamy sexy times.

    All in all, Wanton Heat was a quick read with fairly interesting characters being thrown together in an unexpected way. Their strong personalities collided and made for a healthy dose of sexual tension. It was a good read. I’d recommend it to anyone who likes a good steamy read with a plot that doesn’t suffer in favor of sex scenes.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Such a fun read that I was finished with it in no time!

    Zoe Keaton has a hell of an opportunity in front of her, and it’s her one big chance to make up for the mistakes she made with her ad agency’s other — now former — clients. Her business partner may not know that Zoe’s take-no-prisoners attitude is what lost them several accounts, but Zoe’s still determined to make up for it. And no sexy, brooding prince is going to stand in her way.

    Prince Dominic Ricci is still reeling from the quick succession of losses that took his parents and fiance, and while he’ll humor his grandmother by listening to an ad exec’s pitch, he has no intention of letting anything mar the undeveloped island his father loved so much. He’s spent his whole life dealing with people who want something from him, and his current guest is no different. Except that she kidnaps him.

    Conspiring with the prince’s grandmother, a woman known rather well among the locals for her matchmaking skills, Zoe manages to get Dominic to a nearby island just as a storm hits, stranding them for days with only each other for company. And that’s when things start to get interesting…

    ***“News flash, Your Hot Highness.” She waved a hand between them. “I’ll never be good for you. So let’s settle for me being bad, okay?” She stepped forward, bringing her within tantalizing touching distance again. “Trust me. Me being bad can only be good.”***


    The Verdict...
    Wanton Heat is an incredibly fun read, and the chemistry between Zoe and Dominic is just…wow. From their first meeting until the very end, Zoe’s refreshingly real, rarely hesitating to speak her mind and not holding back when it comes to what — or who — she wants. And oh, how she wants. Lucky for her, Dominic is of a like mind, and while he detests her reason for being there, he can barely control himself around her. Well, let’s be honest; he doesn’t exactly control himself at all.

    Zoe’s character didn’t surprise me nearly as much as how much I liked her. I expected her to be brazen and willful, but where I usually feel those traits are overdone, she had just the right amount of vulnerability to even things out and make me truly understand her. Her reasons for not necessarily believing in love and relationships were pretty standard, but she didn’t overdo the angst or inner reflections. She just was who she was and didn’t throw up a million walls the second things began to change. It made seeing things from her point of view a believable adventure.

    And Dominic… Well, that first meeting painted a pretty incredible picture and set the tone for the rest of the story. He’s sex on legs, with a crown to boot, so while his attitude might not make him Prince Charming, he’s a hell of a lot more interesting as Prince Charming the Pants Off Zoe. If only I were an ad exec on my way to an imaginary island tomorrow! While not a super-short book, Wanton Heat is such a fun read that I was finished with it in no time, and I can’t wait to see what Nicola Marsh writes next!

    HEAT is definitely a way to describe these our main characters in this story. From the moment they meet, they are pulled together by a sexual heat that cannot be denied.

    Zoe has come to meet with Dominick seeking his permission to refurbish a resort that is on his property on the island of Ancora. He is Prince in name only, but contracts were signed nearly 30 years ago by his grandfather, giving him final approval to preserve the ecology of the island.

    Zoe and Dom are both independent, self-sufficient and definitely hard headed. From the very beginning, the banter between them is full of innuendo and all out battle. There are no filters here to dilute their intentions. It is this basic honesty that also draws them together with their " no bulls**t attitude.

    This book ended up being very entertaining. What more can you ask for besides a drop dead gorgeous prince, an exotic island, hot sexy love scenes, and an intrepid heroine?

    This was an enjoyable read, but a little too stereotypical for my taste. The main characters are Zoe, a rich, wild child with a big heart and Dominic a wound prince, who is protecting his island kingdom from developers. Throw in a meddling grandma who happens to be queen, and best friend who super supportive, mix with hot romance, false assumptions and create a enjoyable romance. Not super memorable, but fun to read. (There is a reason this formula exists, I myself love happy endings!) 




    I was given an ARC copy for an honest review.

    Not as good as wicked heat

    ## Sorry, but I was expecting a much better story about Zoe. She was fabulous as Alegra's BFF in "Wicked Heat", which I adored by the way. I still enjoyed her and the Prince was OK as well (a little hot and cold, but forgivable). What I didn't like was the story line. The two islands...should they develop them or not? But there was already a resort on the one island...blah, blah. It was confusing and took up way too much page time. That page time should've been spent on the two leads talking and being together. I wish they could've had more face to face time. Good but not great.

    *ARC Courtesy of Brazen/Entangled Publishing*

    This is the second book in the Feel the Heat series and its Zoe's story..... And although I really enjoyed the book, I think from the exciting blurb I expected a little more.
    This is the story of Zoe and she is headed off to Italy in order to sell a business deal for a resort to a rather hot Italian Prince.
    Prince Dominic however wants nothing to do with Zoe and her resort and he would rather not give her any time of the day. However his interfering and spunky grandmother wants the resort to happen as well as put her matchmaking skills to good use, as she thinks snarky Zoe is just what her grandson needs.
    After the feisty grandmother convinces Zoe to kidnap our hot prince on the island things really start to heat up for these 2. A storm rages in leaving them stranded for a few days in the little island cottage with nothing to do but discuss her proposal and share some hot steamy scenes.

    Having read Wicked Heat last year, I was looking forward to read

    Having read Wicked Heat last year, I was looking forward to reading Wanton Heat. However, I have to admit that it wasn't for me; I found it predicable and on the clichéd side.

    Dominic Ricci is a weathly Italian Prince and Zoe, who we met in the previous book, is Allegra’s best friend and business partner sent to clinch a business deal with him. She’s a flirty love ‘em and leave ‘em girl, he has an attitude and a wariness of women and their motives towards him. And both are as stubborn as each other.

    They have an instant, albeit strained, attraction and with their stubbornness there is sexual tension, but it did take me a long time to warm to them. And whereas I liked Zoe and Allegra’s interactions in the first book, I found all the ‘babes’ and ‘hons’ OTT this time around.

    There’s no denying their intimate moments were hot and as a couple they did grow on me, but on the whole it just didn’t wow me in the same way many others in the Brazen line have.

    I received a copy of this as an ARC courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion.
