"Writing with powerful intensity, Alison Kent mesmerizes us with a compelling love story brimming with scorching sensuality and abiding love." - RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars, TOP PICK
"It's up to you."
How could a four-word invitation scribbled on a business card drive a normally sensible woman to be so impulsive?
It wasn't Harley Golden's style to call a perfect stranger. But here she was, after a brief encounter on a flight home from a business trip, indulging in—and enjoying—risque phone calls with the man who'd handed her his card: the unforgettable and mysterious... and obviously—loaded Gardner Barnes.
The late-night conversations aren't enough for long, however, but she's not sure she's ready for more. So what's next? Fly across Texas in his plane? Talk face-to-face? Fall head over heels for a man who is already married to his ranch? A man who has lust down to an art but doesn't believe in love?
About the Author
A native Texan, Alison sold one of the first of her over fifty published works live on the "Isn't It Romantic?" episode of CBS 48 Hours. The resulting book, CALL ME, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book. Alison's book, A LONG, HARD RIDE, part of Harlequin's 60th Anniversary celebration, was nominated for an RT Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Harlequin Blaze of 2009. STRIPTEASE, a 2003 release from Harlequin Blaze and part of her popular gIRL-gEAR series, was also an RT Reviewer's Choice Award nominee.
Her 2005 Kensington Brava release, THE BEACH ALIBI, was a nominee for the national Quill Awards, sponsored by Reed Business Information. Alison is also the author of THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO WRITING EROTIC ROMANCE, and her 2009 novel, NO LIMITS, was a Cosmopolitan Magazine Red Hot Read. THE SECOND CHANCE CAFE, the first in her Hope Springs series from Amazon Montlake, was a 2014 RITA finalist in contemporary romance.
If there's a better career out there than writing, she doesn't want to know about it, as she's quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That's where she lives with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers.
