Praise for shannon Mckenna "McKenna's latest scorcher carries readers along a sinister path with a delightfully sadistic villain, a mouthwatering hero, and rough and tumble romance. This is romantic suspense at its best!"

More About the Author

Shannon McKenna is the NYT bestselling author of over ten action packed, turbocharged romantic thrillers, among which are the stories of the wildly popular McCloud series. She loves tough and heroic alpha males, heroines with the brains and guts to match them, villains who challenge them to their utmost, adventure, scorching sensuality, and most of all, the redemptive power of true love. Since she was small she has loved abandoning herself to the magic of a good book, and her fond childhood fantasy was that writing would be just like that, but with the added benefit of being able to take credit for the story at the end. Alas, the alchemy of writing turned out to be messier than she'd ever dreamed. But what the hell, she loves it anyway, and hopes that readers enjoy the results of her alchemical experiments. She loves to hear from her readers. Contact her at her website, http://shannonmckenna.com, or join the newsletter by signing up here: http://shannonmckenna.com/connect.php.

Format: Paperback
After locksmith Zan Duncan rescues her from a horrible blind date, Abby Maitland tries to forget her gorgeous rescuer. Although Abby finds Zan very attractive, he's a bad boy and the last thing Abby needs is another bad boy boyfriend. Even if he does star in her sexual fantasies and tempts her to break her own rules and engage in an affair.

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.

How much did I hate this book? An awful, awful lot. I'm not sure I can do justice to my hate in such a short space. And I cannot believe how generously this book has been reviewed in light of the central relationship and its frankly rather disturbing overtones.

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.

Abby Maitland is trying to put her past to rest. She picks the wrong guys every single time she steps up to plate. Her latest set-up is a real winner and to top things off she's locked herself out of the house. She calls a locksmith who just so happens to like to play hero stopping a potential rape and beating. Abby can't help but be drawn to the handsome dark stranger named Zan but she has to her sanity demands it. But like always the one thing that seems to be the worst for her is all she wants. She finally gives into the sensual draw he generates and this should make things better...but it doesn't instead her life gets much more complicated and Zan is at the center of it all. Her best friend has been killed, people think it's a suicide and bad things keep happening to her. But there is a killer out there and he is closer then anyone knows. Will Zan and Abby be able to stay one step ahead of him or will a killer strike one more time?

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!

This author is one of my very favorite brand-name picks and her books are immediate purchases. This is one of her strongest--yet darkest--stories to date. The male and female leads are strong, passionate characters with great chemistry that starts from the get-go and just keeps sizzling.

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.
