Competitors by day, lovers by night…
Allegra Wilks has had the worst month of her personal and professional life. To save her company, she must go on her would-be honeymoon and land the luxury eco-island resort’s lucrative advertising account. But when a lingerie mishap leads her into the arms of a wickedly distracting Australian, Allegra’s tempted to skip the trip and explore the most sensual kiss she’s ever experienced. Too bad their chance encounter at the airport is just that.
Having recently lost his company to his former best friend’s shady business tactics, Jett Alcott is headed to a South Pacific resort to secure an advertising account that will resurrect his reputation and career. Realizing the tantalizing Allegra Wilks is on his flight, Jett envisions a week filled with business and pleasure. But Jett doesn’t know Allegra’s fighting for the same account, or that there’s more at stake than his heart.
Another one of my random Nook purchases that I just can't help but get. When you see a book cover everywhere, sometimes it takes a lot of willpower to resist the temptation... not unlike the temptation Allegra faces when she meets Jett.
The story starts off quite amusing when they meet in the airport. Their banter, his teasing and kindness, and their first kiss. Well then. It's going to be very interesting when they find out the connection they have, isn't it? When Allegra discovers this, she doesn't say a word. This was supposed to be her honeymoon, she should be allowed to have fun, even if it is with the guy who's trying to steal away the business she needs. But will what they have just be fun when Jett finds out the truth?
Let me tell ya, Wicked Heat was very worth it. The back and forth, the battle for the account, the secrets, the romance? All so perfectly put together. I got my Nook out to write this review and I almost got so caught up rereading scenes I didn't finish the review! If this is how Nicola Marsh writes all her books, please sign me up for more.
