Erotic Romance, Multi-cultural/Multi-racial Romance
Ever since her friend Stuart suggested he wanted to hide her at his aloof older brother's ranch, Amerie Palmer was truly expecting the worst and almost backed out at the last minute. However, the man who opened the front door was the most handsome and sexiest male she had ever laid eyes on.
But Kyle Houston had been hurt in the past and his mistrust of women ran deeper than his love for his ranch.
Amerie knew she should stay away from Kyle because he wasn't being very welcoming to her. However, she just felt beneath the tough exterior there was a man who craved love and she could be the woman who would give it to him.

Marie Rochelle has written a delectable romantic novel that keeps you turning the pages. One of the author's trademarks is that her novels feature interracial romances. She follows through on this theme with a steamy love story that encompasses her main characters, Kyle and Amerie.
The novel begins with Amerie Palmer and Stuart Houston escaping from the clutches of her abusive step-father Deacon. Amerie's mother, Olivia, refused to leave, believing that Deacon would stop abusing her and would finally love her. Stuart takes Amerie to his brother Kyle's ranch, where he knows she'll be safe. Kyle and Amerie butt heads from the very beginning, leaving Stuart to return and attempt to rescue Amerie's mother from Deacon.
The author's sense of humor comes out in the portrayal of her characters. Tiny was a former soldier who is now Kyle's chef at the Ranch. Tiny is described as a huge man with an abundance of tattoos. Deacon's henchman, Blade, is a bodyguard whose favorite method of torturing people is to use knives to carve them up. Amerie's stepfather, Deacon, is a loan shark who pretends to be an upstanding citizen, but abuses his wife both verbally and physically.
The length of this novel makes it the perfect read for a rainy afternoon. The story moves quickly and holds your interest from the beginning to the end. My only criticism of the novel is that the numerous typographical errors impede the flow of the novel.
Does Stuart rescue Amerie's mother from the evil Deacon? Do Blade and Deacon find out where Amerie is and come after her? Do Amerie and Kyle fall madly in love? Will Deacon and Blade get their just desserts? I'm not saying… You'll have to read the novel to find out!
