But a simple affair is not in the cards for Abby and Zan. A psychotic madman has set his sights on the pair. Little does the couple know that they are being manipulated to fulfill his evil plan. With time running out, Abby and Zan have no one to turn to, but to each other.
I was willing to sell body parts for a chance to read Hot Night by Shannon Mckenna, although I was a little worried that I might not love this latest book. I've only been waiting for what seems like a million years for it to arrive. And oh boy, the wait was so worth it!
I devoured Hot Night. I loved it so much that I threatened to run away to Mexico with it. Zan is exactly the type of Alpha hero I adore. He's intense, powerful, smart and I want him for my own. Abby is beautiful, loyal, intelligent and it's so not fair. She is all that and she has Zan. Did I mention I am in LOVE with Zan?
I am crazy-mad for Hot Night and cannot say enough good things about this book. Hot Night is ohmigod, burn up the sheets, get out the HAZMAT suit, hot. The suspense is thrilling and wonderfully crafted. It is delicious in all ways! I have always been a Shannon McKenna fan, but after reading Hot Night, I am an uber fan.

As always with Ms McKenna's books, you have the beautiful, quirky heroine in distress and the ALPHA-male hero. The plot is driven by a campy, over the top villain with nefarious intentions and some suitably goonish underlings. Fine. It's ridiculous, but amusing in a high-camp kind of way. I even liked Abby. I liked the little details about her life, I liked her wardrobe; she comes across as a good depiction of a single, successful modern woman. And yes, the chemistry is sizzling and the sex is hot and it is everything we have come to expect - So far so McKenna.
It all comes unglued with Zan. This is a guy who comes across as normal in the beginning of the book; bit of a meat-head, yes, with a limited vocabulary and not a lot of social polish (Vintage McKenna), but certainly cute and studly enough to catch the eye of our heroine. The aforementioned sizzling chemistry and hot sex ensues.
And then it goes horribly wrong.
Before my eyes, a cute, light hearted romance turns dark and nasty. Zan is transformed into a crude, controlling monster. He is jealous, controlling and violent. The worst thing is, it's never resolved. There is no moment of enlightenment; Zan's complete disregard for Abby's work, her career, his inability compromise - an issue that is NOT resolved by the end of the book - left me speechless. He is a graceless, sulking hulk in Abby's world, a great big black hole of negativity and stupidity.Read more ›
Ms. McKenna is an automatic buy for me. Her stories have it all! Great alpha males that are very endearing to the reader, sexy romance between the main characters, and evil baddies straight out of a nightmare. If you are looking for a stay up late night of reading you won't want to over look this page turning effort. Like I said it has it all!
However, her villians are truly hideous excuses for human beings and left me troubled. Her ability to write tortuous death scenes almost overwhelmed her sensual moments until I was relieved to finish the book and have the bad guys out of my head. It speaks to a writer's skill to create such memorable characters--both loving/sensual and horrible.
