Dirty desires, dark secrets…deepest love

A Red Hot Weekend story.

Well, this is an unexpected twist. Jenna Brooks is all set to spend the weekend wallowing in misery, repairing the cracks in the façade she’s maintained for twelve years. Instead she’s…tied to a chair. Kidnapped by her own twin brother and her so-called best friend.

It’s for her own good, they say. She’ll thank them later, they say. But when they reveal her partner in captivity, she shores up her emotional barriers. It’s Garreth Halt. The one man for whom she let her guard down. What a fool she was.

For one electrifying moment, Garreth had Jenna naked in his arms, on the edge of losing her legendary control. Could have kept her there forever, too, if he hadn’t felt honor-bound to tell her the truth. Before she’d heard the whole truth, though, she’d retreated behind the fortress around her heart.

Now they’re knee to knee, with no escape. While he’s irritated he let his alleged best friend get the drop on him, a small part of him is thrilled. With one final chance to show her his love is real, Garreth methodically, wickedly, sets out to dismantle her defenses.

One dirty word at a time.

Warning: Garreth may have charmed you in Winter Fire, but this time around, his blatantly sexy demands, even sexier actions and heart warming love for his heroine are gonna make you fall head over heels.


After two years of denying herself, Jenna is kidnapped and tied to a chair facing a nearly naked, also tied up Garreth.  She has no choice but to listen to everything he is telling her, explaining what he had done, why he had done it, and then going so far as to tell her (in excruciating detail) exactly what he would like to do to the most intimate parts of her body.

If you sleep with the best friend of the love of your life, can you claim it was for her benefit?  That’s exactly what Garreth did to Jenna.  He slept with Jenna’s best friend and then told her he did it for her own good.  And she believed him.  And forgave him.  And let herself get down and dirty with him like she hadn’t done with anyone else, ever before.  Garreth described it best when he said their love was like a soap opera.

Ms. Dee’s Hidden Fire is sexy, sultry, and super stimulating.  The characters are seductive, especially the marvelously hot Garreth.  The plot is a little frustrating – not dating your brother’s friends because of an incident, however traumatic, that occurred in high school – but the story was still enjoyable with verbal seduction and lots of steamy sex.
