Book One

IC-500pxHe’s fiery, courageous…and he can’t resist a sexy challenge.

Survivalist Russ Donovan is known on TV as the “Wildest Man In The World.” The last thing this headstrong Aries guy needs is to be wrangled into a cross-promotional TV special with a popular homemaker–even a sexy little thing like Susannah Stone. Besides, the Adirondacks in the dead of winter is no place for amateurs…especially a stubborn homemaker who’s determined to show him up every chance she gets.

Susannah’s a working single mom who knows plenty about roughing it. She can take anything this mountain man dishes out. Now Russ and Susannah are taking their competitive rivalry to new levels, and not even the canned beef stew is safe. Then Russ and Susannah’s on-camera sparks turn into a sizzling off-camera romance, and their two conflicting worlds collide. Sure, major differences can turn chemistry red-hot…they also make compromise nearly impossible.

Pamela Atwater prides herself on being the perfect assistant. Whatever Dane wants or needs, she’s there – pretending to ignore Dane’s golden charm and drop-dead gorgeousness. On vacation, however, Pamela sees a side of Dane she never imagined. And it’s a side that tempts her to cross the line between professional and personal. But is one month enough time to prove to Dane that his perfect assistant might just be his perfect match?

He’s all business…until he’s all hers

REVENGE-BEST-SERVED-HOT-500x750Brody Flynn waited years to get his revenge on Douglass Shipping for his parents’ accidental deaths. Now the company is fumbling, profits are down, and it’s the perfect time for a hostile takeover. Vengeance. But the former CEO’s daughter Kate Douglass has other plans…

Kate’s been waiting for her chance to take on a real role at Douglass and prove to her family that she’s not the fragile piece of glass they all think she is. There’s no way she’ll give up without a fight. All she has to do is convince the gorgeous new CEO to hire her…and not fall for him.

But Brody was never supposed to feel attracted to the daughter of his enemy. He was never supposed to want her as hard as he does. And the only thing stronger than his hunger for revenge is his hunger for her

First Impression: Superb writing. The character of Brody Flynn is sexy intense.

This was such a fantastic read! Brody Flynn is every bit a man in control of his wants, and yet, he finds himself more than a little intrigued by the contradictions in Kate Douglass. In his quest for revenge against her father, he never stopped to consider she was anything but his enemy’s daughter, but there’s more to her than that, and despite his first assumptions, he’s finds himself fascinated by her.

Brody and Kate’s first kiss was electric. The tension between them hot and steamy. I loved every second of this book and I’m so grateful I got the chance to read it. It’s an excellent addition to the Men of the Zodiac series and a fun, magnetic weekend read. The story and depth of emotion in this book captivated me. The characters are so likable, relatable, and more than worthy of being the hero and heroine of this book. I really liked them both. A lot, in fact.

If you love intense, deeply-woven love stories with a revenge and falling for the enemy’s daughter trope set amidst the business world, Revenge Best Served Hot is an engaging read that will keep you turning the pages faster and faster as you become more and more invested in the story. You’ll fall in love with Brody Flynn, and everything he stands for…and against. He’s a terrific, well-rounded character, and has depth far beyond what one would expect a corporate raider to have. I loved him, and I loved his story.
