Blurb From Amazon:

Nobody’s home at the millionaire’s estate on remote Frakes Island. And nobody seems to be watching. Becca Cantrell dives in for an illicit midnight skinny dip – and gets hauled out by a towering, hard-muscled guy with burning dark eyes. He seems to be in charge. Good. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she’s up for risky thrills…

Nick Ward can’t tell her that he’s spying on a vicious Russian crime boss. Becca could be his worst enemy: an assassin sent to kill him, a call girl sent to distract him, or the worst scenario of all – a clueless innocent. Anyway he looks at it, she’s trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble. The kind he can’t resist.She’s not scared. After one taste of his hot mouth, Becca soon discovers just how fearless she can be. She’ll need it, too – because things are about to explode on Frakes Island, launching Becca and Nick into danger they could never have imagined – and a passion that could destroy them both…

I know, I know, what can I say, she’s my drug of choice. No doubt I’ll be bitching and whinging about how stoopid her heroine is, and how ridiculously assholic her hero is, but when all’s said and done, I’ll still probably buy her next book. Big effing sigh.

Hey, don’t look at me like that, I bet you guys have authors who you shouldn’t love like a fat kid loves cake, but do anyway, don’tcha?

    I’m working hard at fighting those addictions… but I completely understand what you are saying. Hell, only the first four or five Carpathian books worked for me, and yet I’m still unable to get rid off the next six, which I bought in the forever fading hope that they’d work… But at least I’m no longer buying them, or reading them!

    Enjoy the cake, Karen!

    Yep, that is Laurel K. Hamilton for me…I started reading the very first Anita book however long ago and I keep reading even when I bitch and moan about lack of plot or the only action is sex with as many people as she can write in. BUT I keep reading them because she is, like you said, my drug of choice. Peace.

  • Totally with you! Adore her, even if her heroes are way over the top macho and her heroines are TSTL. There’s just something about a Shannon McKenna book that keeps you coming back for more, huh? Love, love, love her books!

    I read one of her books back when I first started reading erotic romance and it was way too over the top intense for me, so I thought I just can’t read her anymore. Suddenly though, I’m jonesing for this book. I didn’t pre-order and I got it so bad for this book that I’ve been going every day to Borders and B&N in hopes that they got it in early.

    What’s up with that?

    What I’m really waiting for is Tamara’s story. I’ve seen on her blog that it’s coming and now I’m salivating over that one too.

  • I’ve never read a Shannon McKenna book either, although I have been assured that I’m going to hate her. But I have no room to talk. Bertrice Small is my newest guilty pleasure. I know her stories are so terribly awful, and the purple prose alone is cause for random gigglefits, but I can’t help myself.

  • Ooooo, this one sounds yummy! I’ll have to grab it next time I’m at the bookstore. I don’t think I have a ‘guilty pleasure’ type author. I do love Katie MacAllister’s Noble Intentions. ::blush:: I think that counts. 😛

  • It’s so very embarrassing but I love, love, love Penny Jordan (Sara Craven, Lynne Graham, Helen Brooks…) Presents. Let’s talk about assholic men and TSTL women. I know this intellectually, but I gobble them up.

    I have no such addictions but I am proud of you in that you admitted that you at least have a problem. Also, may I say that I am thrilled that you finally left Blogger behind?

    My hidden shame is Anne Mather. She has written for Mills and Boons for over forty years. I hide her books in a drawer.
    Shannon McKenna is the other one (although her books are still in a bookcase). I am hanging for this book, and can’t wait until the dead twin brother comes back.
    Sherrilyn Kenyon is approaching the hidden drawer of shame books – as her writing descends into cheesy convolutedness, I still want Ash’s HEA.

  • My name is Rosie and I read Shannon McKenna books. Some work better than others, but LOVE her books. Finished this one this week and it’s a sizzler.

  • I heart Shannon. She’s the best-I have all of her books!
