"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Arden is in Maui, staying at her family’s resort recently purchased to be part of the St. Sebastian hotel empire. She’s stressed out, with expectations on her from all sides whether it’s trying to keep her separated but never quite divorced parents happy, working with the hotel suppliers to get the right supplies for the rooms, or even just trying to chase down an orgasm in her down time – yet another facet of frustration in her life. When she meets the handsome stranger at the hotel bar with the biteable biceps and the self-confident attitude, the chance at a one night stand sounds oh so heavenly. It’ll hopefully give her some good memories to make up for the blind date at the end of the week, set up by her well meaning father as yet another stress to add to her life.
Nick Bancroft is in his medical residency at the local hospital when he meets the beautiful woman at the bar after agreeing with his aunt and uncle to a blind date they set up for him for the end of the week. No names, no expectations, just a hot night of no holds barred sex? Yes, please! When their night together proves to be less than satisfactory for Arden (not Nick’s fault!) Nick promises Arden that if she gives him a week, he’ll make sure she’ll leave her worries behind in the time she spends with him. They agree to nicknames only (Czarina and Rider) and no holds barred sex, with the end date clearly in sight. But can their week in paradise be the start of something long lasting?
I think the heat quotient of this series has ratcheted up with each book, because whoa baby, this one is hottt! Nick is out to prove to Arden that he can get her to let go of all the stresses on her mind and focus on them and is extremely successful at it. The catch is that the more time he spends with her, the more he’s starting to regret that he agreed to a sex only fling in the first place. He wants to know more about her, he wants her to trust him, and he wants to not just be an afterthought at the end of the week. Nick comes across as smart, fun, friendly, and a very generous lover with a big heart. He’s a great catch – if only he’d let Arden know he wants to be caught.
Arden is also a very likable character. The stress on her is clear, as is her desire to let things go when she’s with Nick. She also comes to regret the choice they made at the beginning to leave out the more personal details of their lives but sticks to their agreement. But Nick is also able to make her see that she needs to take more firm footing with her parents and find ways to stick up for herself and her needs better. The conflict in the story is fairly predictable since the reader knows about the blind date they’ve both been set up for, and what they are headed for at the end of the week. The story unfolds well and with plenty of steamy scenes between the couple, it makes for a highly enjoyable read. This one is definitely going on my re-read shelf! Compromised in Paradise is a sexy vacation romance with a sweet happy ever after ending.
Nick Bancroft, oh my, need a description? Orgasm whisperer. Because being hot, alpha, and a doctor just isn't enough. Which is what Arden needs considering the woman is stressed out. She needs a break from it all. Work. Family. Life in general. But she wants anonymity. No names. Six hot days under the Hawaiian sun. I think the good doctor has the right prescription for her.
Compromised in Paradise, the third in the series, is by far the sexiest. I thoroughly enjoyed it and read it in two sittings. I had a hard time putting the book down. Beck fans, be ready to blown away. You will LOVE Nick and Arden
Arden St. Sebastian is stressed to the point of no return by her father's constant critique in how she does her job at his luxury resorts. He has supposedly retired and put her brother in charge, but you couldn't prove it by her! She's drowning here .. and needs some stress relief something fierce!
Dr. Nick Bancroft can't help but eye the sexy woman at the end of the bar and when one flirt leads to another, and they make their way back to her room, he's looking forward to the anonymous night of sex she's offering ... but hold up ... he might not make her give him her name, but no way is he going to put up with her faking her enjoyment! He offers her a crazy deal that she decides to go along with ... she'll tour the island with him for the six days that she has left in Maui and in exchange, he'll work her through the lack of enjoyment her stress induces body has been wreaking on her of late and make sure she leaves Hawaii a very satisfied woman!
That is what's missing in the story. There is no chemistry building.
