Maggie Hunt seems to have it all together...
A successful attorney and litigator, she's on a mini-vacation in Maine when a trip and fall along a forest trail brings her face-to-face with former Navy SEAL Doctor, Chase Regan. It doesn't take long for the sparks to fly
, and her annoyance with the tall, dark and handsome doctor only increases as he seems to know how to push her buttons
better than anyone.
Romance is the last
thing Maggie is looking for, even though Chase's petite, blond companion seems to think otherwise. She has sworn off men for good following a betrayal and painful divorce, and now she's hoping that the sexual tension and response in her body is solely a result of her abstinence over the last few months...
Certain parts of her body seem to act as an antenna when Chase is around, much to Maggie's chagrin. Feeing betrayed by her body, she desperately tries to resist the growing attraction.
Shocked by her response to their brief, steamy interludes, Maggie attempts to deny the all-consuming pleasure that his touch creates
, frightened by a depth she has never known before, and the vulnerability she feels as a result.*** Excerpt:
"I'll walk you to your room," Chase replied. "You're still shivering and may have mild hypothermia, Maggie. A hot shower will do you some good."
"I - I can handle that, but thanks, Chase," Maggie replied, wobbling slightly with just the
thought of Chase and her shower, and trying to keep her teeth from chattering.
"You're not getting rid of me that easily." Taking her arm, he began walking with her toward the lodge. Rather than cause a scene, Maggie let Chase walk her to her room. At the door she turned to say thank you, but he gently guided her inside and closed the door. Taking her face in
his hands, his blue-eyes probed hers. She felt lost in them.
"I'm going to stay to make sure you're ok, Maggie. I'll run the shower for you." As she opened her mouth to protest, Chase gently put his finger over her lips...
This is insanity
, she thought, as she leaned against the closed door...
- "I love the layers of this story--the way the secrets and tension between Chase and Maggie ebb and flow - and even crescendo. I loved the gentle build of the romance and steamy connection. The characters grew together in a realistic yet romantic way. All in all, a terrific debut!"
- "This is my first time reading Kate Bellevue. I absolutely LOVED and enjoyed this book! Chase and Maggie's passion was explosive to say the least. Their up and down relationship had me on the edge of my seat. The sexual tension was electrifying and hot..."
This book is intended for an audience 17 years and older. It contains tasteful, sexy, and steamy scenes between Chase and Maggie; their relationship every bit as rocky as the Maine coast.
