Guilty pleasures can heat the coldest winter night…
A Red Hot Winter story.
There’s never been any question in Rachel Ashberg’s mind. Jackson Brooks is the one, and they both know it. The problem? Thanks to his unbreakable rule—never date his twin sister’s friends—he’s completely off-limits. Even if they can’t imagine being with anyone else.
It’s been over two years since their last encounter, when they gave in—just once—to their passion. Now, as the Brooks twins’ milestone birthday approaches, Rachel and Jackson are about to meet again at a gorgeous mountain resort. Needing something to take the edge off the desire that has never faded, she indulges in a fling with sexy stranger Garreth Halt. He even makes her forget Jackson for a while. Or…maybe not.
When she mentions Jackson’s name in passing, Garreth picks up on all the hidden undertones in her voice. And he brings Jackson into their bed, if only in a fantasy they play out together. Funny thing about Garreth’s fantasies, though. Even the most improbable, impossible ones have a way of becoming reality…
Warning: Enough heat is contained within these pages that you won’t even notice the winter cold. You might fall in love with Jackson—the real-life hero, determined to protect his sister from further pain—but it’s the handsome stranger, Garreth, who’ll take your breath away.
Jackson and Rachel have been in love for twelve years. But they can’t be together… Why? Because Jackson’s twin sister was slandered by a girl in high school after Jackson broke up with the bimbo. Okay, while I thought this conflict was a little overly dramatic, I still enoyed the book. The characters have sizzling chemistry, the sex was stimulating, and there’s a happily ever after…finally. I did feel really bad for Garreth and look forward to him getting his girl.
If there’s one thing Ms. Dee does well, it’s super hot menage scenes. Her writing is fast paced, gets to the good parts quickly and keeps them coming (pun intended) until the end. Winter Fire is a very enjoyable short story.
