Clare Connelly Brings The Heat in Off Limits

Clare Connelly Brings The Heat in “Off Limits”

With chemistry this hot, it’s worth getting burned…

Off Limits, Harlequin Dare
5 out of 5 stars

In the erotic and wholly seductive Off Limits, author Clare Connelly introduces readers to a forbidden, clandestine love affair between a boss and an employee.

On the surface, brilliant, wealthy Jack Grant is an emotionally unavailable hedonist. But underneath all that? He’s a man who feels too much. So much so, in fact, he wants to dull the pain by losing himself in whatever woman is available and willing at the time.

Personal Assistant Gemma Picton is often described as cold and efficient, but a deep passion lurks inside her. A passion that Jack continually calls to the forefront with his sexual and seductive antics. And even though Gemma knows she has no business agreeing to sleep with a man like Jack, she finds herself doing it anyway.

Dark, delicious, and blazing hot, Off Limits, is a sinfully sexy thrill ride from beginning to end. With sharp writing, intelligent characterization, sizzling sexual chemistry between its leads, and clever, titillating dialogue, Clare Connelly’s Off Limits, gives readers an addictive, compelling novel that longtime erotic romance readers will find impossible to put down.

A story that’s mesmerizing in its illicitness, Off Limits, deserves to be on many romance fans reading list this February. To read a book excerpt or find out more about the book and its talented author, check out the information below.


Review by Deanna




Copyright © 2018 Off Limits by Clare Connelly

I am holding my breath again. Is that how I’m going to get over this little hurdle? Suffocate myself? Is that even possible? I’m pretty sure we have some breathing trigger in our brains, but my brain is a bit pissy with me so maybe it would conveniently forget about the button.

I push air out consciously, quietly, and he takes his seat.

‘Anyway…’ I prompt impatiently.

His smile is a clicker. Is he laughing at me? Arrogant arsehole! That’d be just like him. See? That’s the problem! I know him. I’m not one of his other women. I know that is he as bastardy as he is sexy.

‘How did you sleep?’

I blink at him, my eyes wide. ‘You’ve already asked me that.’

‘You didn’t answer.’

I exhale a sigh that speaks of anger. ‘Like I always do. Seriously, Jack. My desk is covered in paper. I have to get to work.’

I’m your work,’ he says with a shrug.

Insolent bastard.

He leans forward, and while his face is casual there is an urgency in the flecks of gold that fill his eyes. ‘Did you see him last night?’

I want to remind him of the salient fact I pointed out the night before. It’s not his damned business. But I’m not sure I can say that with such conviction now that I’ve tasted his mouth; now that I’ve been stunned by his desire.

Can I skirt around his question?

You’re my work? Okay, the thing is I have the New York guys waiting on contracts, you have a meeting in a week that I have to prepare for and Athens wants your input-which means my input- on a lease agreement. And I need to – ‘


God! Don’t hate me, but when he’s bossy I love it. And he’s almost always bossy.

I glare at him across his desk; it’s best if he doesn’t know that this is just about my favourite version of him.’

With chemistry this hot, it’s worth getting burned…

But Jack has major emotional baggage, so when Gemma starts wanting to heal his heart as well as enjoy his body, she knows she’s in big trouble…
