Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The romance in Dimon's latest romp (To All a Good Night) definitely rates as hot—so hot, in fact, that it cools down the thriller elements. As estranged lovers Noah Paxton and Lexy Stuart reluctantly reunite—he's tracked her down to a Utah desert spa forty miles from the nearest anything—and do some investigating to hunt for a killer, their playful banter and lovers' spats weigh down the proceedings. Noah works as a security expert for Stuart Enterprises, Lexy's family business, and he's surprised Lexy at her retreat. What he doesn't know is that Lexy's supposed vacation is actually her attempt to investigate Noah himself, whose marriage proposal she's turned down because she suspects he's stealing from one of the company's big clients. Though she's out to discredit him, she may be more interested in his scorching body. When Lexy's only source, the resort's security chief, turns up dead before he can help her, Noah and Lexy begin a protracted game of cat and mouse—with, quite possibly, no mouse at all. Though steamy, Dimon's latest won't thrill anywhere but between the sheets. (Nov.)

More About the Author

By day I'm a divorce lawyer specializing in unhappy endings. One day, during a particularly difficult string of cases, a former co-worker handed me a romance novel with the promise of a much-needed escape and a happy ending. I've been reading - and now writing - romance ever since.

My first release, the novella HARDHATS AND SILK STOCKINGS in the Kensington Brava anthology WHEN GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO BAD BOYS with Lori Foster and Erin McCarthy, was an Amazon, B&N and Borders bestseller. My first single author anthology, VIVA LAS BAD BOYS!, earned rave reviews and was a bestseller on Amazon and at B&N. Both books are available on Amazon and at other bookselling outlets.

My first single title, YOUR MOUTH DRIVES ME CRAZY, is a July 2007 Kensington Brava release. Check back here for more details. You also can visit me at for updated information and some chit chat on my blog.

That was confusing and just made me feel like you were writing the book to meet a deadline.
I find the hoarding issue to be especially interesting and think it goes far in making this story incredibly realistic.
HOT AS HELL combines powerful imagery and steamy love scenes to make for a sultry and sensual read.

Noah Paxton has finally caught up with Alexa, his missing ex-fiancé. After a diligent search, he finds her vacationing at a fitness spa in the desert. Noah is HOT AS HELL, and he wants to get to the bottom of why Lexy left him and took important and confidential records with her. After all, he trusted her implicitly, and to find out he is wrong about her doesn't sit well with him.

Alexa Stuart has come to this desert spa with the hopes of finding out why Noah, her now ex-fiancé, kept important secrets from her. Lexy gave Noah many chances during their whirlwind relationship to tell her exactly what he was doing and why. When Noah wouldn't admit to his secret activities, Lexy had no choice but to end their engagement and their relationship. Returning his ring was one of the hardest things Lexy has ever done, but she had no choice. Though she loves Noah, without his trust - and her lack of trust in him - what kind of marriage could they possibly have?

When a dead body is found in Lexy's room, she has no choice but to involve Noah. Working to clear their names as suspects of this senseless murder, they will stop at nothing in order to find the true culprit. Who said anything in life is easy, right?

HelenKay Dimon once again has penned an extremely compelling and well written romantic suspense novel with HOT AS HELL. This talented author effortlessly combines scorching hot loves scenes, tender displays of affection, and wickedly funny humor. These elements smoothly blend together to make a compellingly addictive read.

Speaking of addictive - Noah Paxton has to be one of the finest, most sexy male characters I have read about this year. He loves Lexy - that isn't the issue.

Lexy Stuart is looking for some rest and relaxation at a Utah desert retreat and maybe a chance to try and forget her fiancé, Noah Paxton. It's not that easy when Noah shows up, ready to win her back no matter what it takes. But Lexy isn't just taking a break, she's trying to solve a mystery to save her company. When that mystery centers around Noah and with the discovery of a dead body in Lexy's room, these two need to learn to trust each other to solve the crime and find their way back together.

I'm a big fan of HelenKay Dimon books and not just because she's a personal friend. She writes a really good romantic suspense with a lot of the elements that I enjoy. There is a lot of spice and heat between the hero and heroine, there is a nail biting mystery, and a little bit of danger that keeps you on the end of your seat until the bitter end. This particular was not my favorite of hers but I will keep picking her up and enjoying the twists and turns she provides.

Lexy Stuart has had it with her fiancé, Noah Paxton. He may be smart and insanely gorgeous, but he keeps secrets from her; secrets like the fact that he was married once before. With that not-so-little straw breaking the camel's back, Lexy packs up and heads off to a fitness spa in southern Utah. Fortunately, or unfortunately for Lexy, Noah is hot on her heels. He's determined to bring her back with him, and he's not leaving until she agrees to marry him again. Arguments lead to heightened sexual tension and when a dead body turns up in Lexy's room at the resort she has no choice but to ask for Noah's aid in discovering who the killer is. Being in close quarters leaves little room for resisting old passions and emotions that never did die. Lexy and Noah's time in the desert is about to get a whole lot hotter.

I have a confession to make: I picked up Hot as Hell because I liked the cover. Happily, this book proves that you sometimes can judge a book by its cover. HenlenKay Dimon has penned a sexy, exhilarating tale with a hero who is, indeed, hot as hell.

I love Noah. He was intelligent, protective, and sinfully good looking. Yet Noah isn't perfect. His past has left its mark on him, and while it causes Noah to make mistakes in his relationship with Lexy, my heart broke for him all the same. Lexy, however, took a while to grow on me. While I understood why she left Noah in the first place, after a while her words and actions were not only desperate, but felt unreasonable as well. Perhaps this is because I also saw things from Noah's point of view, but nevertheless I was impatient with Lexy at times. Yet, the end, her love for Noah won me over and I was unable to put Hot as Hell down because I wanted to see the two find happiness with one another.

HelenKay, I'm rootin' for ya, I truly am. But this book left me wanting more as I read it.

There was a lot of TALK about Noah's past; just not enough detail. I kept waiting for some deeper insight and it never came.

And what was Lexy's job? I hardly knew until the end when her brother finally started to play hardball with her.

I felt like the book was written in a hurry. There were a few small errors that no editors picked up on. That's not really a big deal. But it is a big deal when the characters don't know what they are saying. There was a section where Lexy was having some thoughts on a subject; then suddenly they were Noah's thoughts. That was confusing and just made me feel like you were writing the book to meet a deadline.

There also could have been more depth into the Noah/Grey/Dex relationship. I would've liked to get to know them better so that I would have a vested interest in the story when Dex turned out to be a dick.

To sum it up, the book lacked depth and, as a result, realism. All of this doesn't mean I won't read future books; I will. Because HelenKay has lots of potential. I just think she needs to get under the surface a bit more.
