Erotic Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
Evan Reynolds likes his sex straightforward and without strings attached. An anonymous hook-up is just his style. So the hot quickie with the high-class escort he hired to meet him at one of his father's parties suits him just fine. The only problem is she's not a call girl. Supremely aloof executive assistant Andrea Prentiss has shot down passes from guys in a dozen different languages. So when she realizes big-money-on-both-sides-of-the-family Evan thinks she's a whore he's ordered up like a flower arrangement, it should have prompted one of her most disdainful set-downs. Instead, it makes the ice princess hot. When Andrea gets together with Evan, her cool facade melts away and his laid-back front starts to show its possessive, alpha-male Reynolds roots. But Andrea isn't who she seems. Her thaw is interrupted after a chance meeting identifies her resemblance to a long-lost heiress. She disappears without a word only to reappear months later. She's in trouble, he's confused and they're both exploring hidden depths. A Romantica(r) erotic suspense romance from Ellora's Cave.

After being safe for years, Andrea Prentiss finally finds a man that could thaw the ice in her heart, but before she can find out, a chance meeting brings danger from her past to threaten her and Evan's chance to explore hidden depths in this mesmerizing romantic suspense.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers shivering in suspense with lots of intrigue, drama and romance. The author describes the story with well written scenes and details that captures the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense and drama ensures that the reader gets completely caught up in Andrea's story. The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grab the reader's attention from the very beginning.
The heat of attraction burns hot from the moment that Evan mistakes Andrea for a high class escort and she decides to act upon that moment and enjoy it, then she thinks it will be back to business for her. Evan is ensnared by Andrea even though he really didn't want a relationship. The reader can't help but get enjoy the rocky relationship as Andrea tries to keep herself separated from any emotion knowing that her past could come back and kill her...literally.
The story keeps readers on their toes with some twists and turns and grips the heart with Andrea's troubled past. Spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story as more of the past is revealed and the danger to Andrea gets closer, and of course the reader wants to know if Evan will be able to hold on to the ice princess.
I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it and I was very delighted to find out that the author has written two previous books about the Reynolds family as I was intrigued by their characters as well, so I will be reading those while hoping that she has plans to write Chris' book.
