Overview

Andy Redfield is a hard-nosed real estate developer, trying to settle his father's estate and locate the treasure that was mentioned in his father's will. Bernie Harp is a no-nonsense, private investigator, who specializes in locating lost objects. When Andy hires her to find his dad's treasure, she anticipates working alone, as was her custom. She communicates this to Andy in no uncertain terms, but Andy was having none of it. If anything, he was determined to lend his assistance. When finding the treasure becomes more than a routine job, and the presence of a suspicious intruder is discovered, tempers flare and sparks fly. While they have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye, Andy and Bernie agree on one thing: They need to capture the intruder and locate his father's treasure.
Kicking and screaming, Bernie is forced to accept his presence on the job, even though it was distracting as hell. With them rubbing each other the wrong way, before they know it, the friction they generate turns to love's golden heat, igniting a fire neither expected, and neither could deny. So, when Bernie unexpectedly disappears, Andy realizes she was more precious to him than all the treasures in the world, and he'd give up anything to find her--anything, including the treasure, only is he prepared for what he finds?

All Mills & Boon type of romances are like my comfort food. I often pick up one when I’ve had enough of the seriousness of life. Even then, it has to have a relatable story-line for me to continue reading it. Sex and passion shouldn’t have been thrown in just because other books have it. On all this criteria and more, Golden Heat turned out to be a good read. The progression from mutually shared animosity to passion to love is smooth, believable, and does not jump from scene to scene. That way, I also thought the story was very well-written because it covers a lot of space without being too wordy. Compared to some other stories of the same genre that I’ve read, this one is paced slightly faster. But i am not complaining. Sometimes not having to wait too much for a happy ending is a good thing. Sometimes stories, or rater their writers, don’t let readers think for themselves. Every thought a character thinks, every emotion that they feel is directly translated into words. However, in Golden Heat, the Author sketches her characters of Andy and Bernie so well that all of this doesn’t have to be spelled out into words. The sketches apeak to you. Wynette’s parallel track is also well incorporated and doesn’t come across as an attempt to fill up space. I only wish that the Native American angle, the rituals that Bernie performs would have been explored a little more. Not too much, but if a little more about the Native American history and some details of the rituals were covered, it would’ve elevated the interest factor of the story. Nonethless, I am going to give this book a 4/5.
