"A torrid romance"
Several years ago his fiancée died in an accident
leaving CEO Ian Carlisle to grieve his loss. Still lonely,
Ian buries himself in his work, not caring about anything
else until he inadvertently staggers upon a radio talk show
with a frank discussion on sex hosted by the sexiest voice
he ever heard.
Erica McCree knows how to heat up the airwaves with her
show in which she asks a different ardent question each
night of her listeners, who call in with sexual desires.
To bad Erica cannot heat up her own sheets as well as she
does with her radio show. Ian begins calling and soon
their double entendres and torrid exchanges lead to higher
ratings and his asking her out on a date, which she accepts
after her audience encourages her to do so. What will
happen when Ian and Erica meet when their radio discussions
would have melted the Arctic?
The key to this solar heated novel is the lead
characters that obviously care for one another so much so
the audience will want this dynamic duo to make it. The
support cast, especially the callers add depth with their
short vignettes, but Erica's best friend is a painful
nudnik who only slows down the plot. HEAT WAVES is a tale
that those readers who want scorched fingers will savor;
just keep your Ian handy (pun intended).
