Gutsy, sexy, Brooke Donovan-Worthington has been a widow for
7 months. Her deceased husband, Mike, a physician, had a
dark secret that she must now continue to protect. Honey
Creek, Texas is not the place she wants to be now, however,
she must continue to manage the Honey Creek Family Medicine
clinic and work as a Physician's Assistant to get her school
loan paid. On top of everything else that she has on her
mind, Brooke is constantly fighting her reputation of being
the daughter of Dixie Donovan, the town whore.
Dr. Jack Silver makes the trip from San Antonio to Honey
Creek spurred on by guilt. His Uncle Ed, while drunk, was
the source of Mike's car accident and subsequent death.
Intending on leaving Brooke with a $250,000 life insurance
check to compensate the loss of her husband, he finds a
gorgeous and feisty P.A. instead of the broken widow he
expected. He also did not expect her to refuse the gracious
offer. The Donovan women have a reputation of being hot
blooded, and Brooke is no exception. Over time, Jack and
Brooke connect over more then just the small town medical
practice. They both start the relationship as a casual fling
but Jack soon realizes that Brooke means a whole lot more to
him then just steamy sex. Convincing the prideful woman his
love is genuine and not just guilt over his family's
connection in her husband's death, becomes the hardest
battle he 'all ever have in his life.
HOTBLOODED is one exciting and fun read. The characters of
Brooke and Jack are truly colorful as they struggle with
deciphering their feelings for one another. Brooke fights
her love for Jack and confuses it with her huge sexual
drive. HOTBLOODED is a "read at one sitting" kind of story
and definitely keeps the excitement going in more ways then
one. The only regret I had was that it ended too soon!
Great read and definitely recommended!
Her mama always said the women in their family were
And itâ€™s been causing Brooke Donovan trouble her whole life.
But it wasnâ€™t until her mother took on the most powerful man
in Honey Creek, Texas, that Brooke truly realized the
daughter of the town whore didnâ€™t stand a chance. When she
left, it was supposed to be for good. But now, thanks to her
late husbandâ€™s deal with their hometown, sheâ€™s back in the
last place on earth she wants to be. Temporarily. As soon as
her debts are paid off, sheâ€™s outta here. Until in walks the
one man who can make her rethink everything.
Dr. Jack Silver fixes things. So, when he learns his uncle
is responsible for Brooke losing her husband, his sense of
honor drives him across Texas to make amends. Instead of a
broken woman, though, he finds a gorgeous, feisty
physicianâ€™s assistant trying to survive in a town that wants
her gone. She also has a mile-high fence built out of prideâ€”
and a clinic thatâ€™s at risk of going belly up. She may not
want his money, but the clinic? He can fix that. He just
never expects that in setting Brooke back on her feet, heâ€™ll
be swept right off his own.
