Then in walks Sean Bennett...
Just months away from earning his post-graduate law degree, Sean's smart, driven, and serious, but an unexpected encounter between us in a bar one night changes everything. His best friend, Trinitee, warns against getting too involved, but the heat between us is beyond intense, and neither of us are willing to walk away.
With my marriage in shambles, I'm eager to make a go of it with Sean, despite our sixteen-year age difference. But while I relish my sexual reawakening, I fear giving up the posh life I've grown accustomed to. That life, however, and everything in it, comes crashing down as bodies start piling up around us, and all clues point to me and Sean.
Secrets, betrayal, and revenge threaten to destroy not just my carefully-crafted reputation, but my very life. With our freedom at stake, Sean and I join forces to uncover those plotting against us. But as doubt and evidence mount, I must choose: give in to my suspicions and save myself, or trust our new-found love and save us both.

When I picked up Stirred by Nancy Thompson I was very curious as to how a very talented thrill writer was going to switch genres into romance. It only took a few pages to see that she was going to do it with as much aplomb as she did with her last two books. Stirred is a dark, gritty, intense romance of deceit, murder, family ties and frankly, the sex that stirs all those things together into an explosion for Eden and Sean. There were so many times I had to put the book down and take a deep breath, reminding myself that Eden and Sean weren't real people, but Ms. Thompson surely made you feel as if they were. Declan, how I loath thee. I was never happier to see someone get their comeuppance in my life. As Eden's husband he betrayed her in so many ways I lost count. There was some humor in the book and you will find it in several scenes with Declan, the biggest D*** on the planet. Ms. Thompson did such a fantastic job with this book it's hard to review it without giving spoilers. The characters were so real they made your chest ache with anticipation for them, and the plot of the book so plausible it scared me to think about it really happening to someone I know. Set in the beautiful backdrop of Snoqualmie Falls, Stirred is a walk through the dark world of martial affairs, murder, and what happily ever after really means.
Nancy Thompson’s latest novel is truly wonderful! To think she came onto the book scene as a writer of thrillers and now she’s released a first-class erotic romance. Stirred is hot, romantic, and thrilling all at the same time. I was on the edge of my seat through the entire novel. I love that Stirred is a romantic thriller first and erotic romance second. It’s not very often erotic romance is driven by plot; they’re usually focused more on straight sex. It’s hard to balance a romance plot and a mystery sub-plot at the same time. Many people don’t realize the skill and focus it takes to get the balance right. Nancy nailed with Stirred! The encounters between Sean and Eden early in the novel are so well done, I got lost in their world and in the world of Seattle. The tension increased every time they were in a room together. Their relationship seemed to crackle at times, making it incredibly difficult to put the book down when I need to. Nancy managed to stay on point with the mystery plot, but still write some of the hottest sex scenes I’ve read in a long time. Not only are the sex scenes hot, they’re littered with tension! Sean and Eden melted into the pages and seamlessly became real life to me as I read. I’m also giving Nancy extra points for offering us a lead woman character over 40. Who says good romance has to be between twentysomethings all the time? I found it refreshing to read about a hot, sexy, and incredibly smart MOM who was finally getting what she wanted in life. I also found it equally refreshing to see her love interest was a younger man. Romance novels are so often the other way around. Congrats to Nancy S. Thompson on a fantastic, well-written, and stunning novel! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
