Swelter finds ex-congressional aide Teal Giovanni, escaping from the paparazzi, thrown into the path of August Reese, in hiding from the drug lord she has exposed to the law. The attraction is instant, although they both keep their secrets. Over time, however they can’t keep their hands off each other, their bodies collide and their hearts aren’t far behind.
D Jackson Leigh writes great romances, and this one is no exception. The characters are gorgeous, strong, powerful women, more than capable of handling themselves. They are all high achievers in one way or another, and live out the dream finding their happy ever after.
The plotline is exciting, a decent page turner – we always know its going to turn out ok, but what our heroines have to suffer first keeps the interest and the juices flowing. I really enjoyed the portrayal of the ranch and wilderness, the story makes excellent use of the land and the heritage imbued in it’s history and culture.
Traditional romance at its steamy best – definitely no fade to black found here!
