"Close quarters are the "icing" on the cake for these two."

When I think of Nancy Warren I think of a fun light hearted
read that is going to take me away from the daily struggles
of life. Therefore when I sat down to read POWER PLAY her
latest Harlequin Blaze I was confident that I would be
smiling and giggling my way through the story. Needless to
say I was not disappointed.
Emily Saunders has returned to her hometown of Elk Crossing,
Idaho to attend a wedding. Emily has insisted on staying at
the hotel as a means of asserting her independence, and to
try to avoid getting totally wrapped up in the wedding
frenzy. Whether or not staying at the hotel will be the
best idea remains to be seen as soon the peaceful night is
shattered with terrifying screams.
No there is not a brutal murder in progress, but rather an
infestation of bed bugs. Is there anyone who can keep their

and visit with some of the secondary characters once again.
If you're looking for an escape from life for a few hours I
don't think POWER PLAY by Nancy Warren will disappoint.
Keep her hands to herself?
Not easy for Emily
Saunders, who's in Elk Crossing, Idaho, for a family
wedding. She's double booked in the same hotel room with a
sexy cop attendingâ€”of all things!â€”a hockey tournament. As a
massage therapist, Emily's soon itching to soothe
Jonah Betts's gorgeous musclesâ€”both on and off the
Jonah can't believe his luckâ€”a sexy single woman
sharing his cozy room, albeit temporarily. Okay, her orange
bridesmaid dress is a disaster and her family is convinced
he's actually her boyfriend. He's ready to go along with it
even as he makes his playâ€¦.

calling for a TIME-OUT! Will Jonah's fantasies be
