Victoria Woodley is done with men. Fresh off a dating nightmare, she flies from her home in Chicago to Scarlet Springs to take part in her best friend’s wedding. Who picks her up at the airport? Eric Hawke. Of course. She made a fool of herself over him last time she was here. He’s cocky, charming, and sexy as sin. But the fact that she’s attracted to him is all the proof she needs that he’s bad news. She would ignore him if she could. But he’s the best man, and she’s the maid of honor. She can’t just tell him to jump in a lake—especially not when her lips are locked with his.
Eric isn’t looking for a relationship. Between running the firehouse and volunteering for the county’s search and rescue team, he has enough on his plate. He doesn’t need to get tangled up with a woman from the big city, especially one whose idea of roughing it is going without designer coffee. Yet from the moment he looks into Victoria’s big brown eyes, the attraction he feels is too strong to deny. Faster than he can imagine, the spark of desire that has smoldered between them since the first day they met will flare into full-blown passion.
But can Eric convince Victoria to set aside her doubts and trust him with her heart before their time together runs out?
Slow Burn is the second novel in Pamela Clare’s new Colorado High Country series. I enjoyed the first book, Barely Breathing and gave it 5 stars, but this book is even better!! I enjoyed it more, so if I could, I would give it MORE than 5 stars!
This is great writing. You can tell that Ms. Clare understands Colorado and lives there. The mountains and the setting come alive in this series, and I have half a mind to move to Colorado just to live near this fictional town and fictional characters!
Eric Hawke. Just his name gives me the chills and his character is even sexier than his name. When Eric picks Victoria up from the airport, I knew immediately that I was going to love this book. They have a past and it was clear from the first meeting that they were going to have a future as well.
Brought together by a wedding, the scene was set for sparks to fly and a romance to begin, (or begin again).
Pamela can write heat, spice, and sexy, and she ups her game with this one. Eric and Victoria share some amazing moments together throughout this book and this is a book where there were certain parts that I immediately did a re-read of just to experience the scene again.
This is just plain and simply great contemporary romance. It is not bogged down by crazy plot-lines, suspense, and bad communication. It’s a book that celebrates love and the process of falling onto love. It was exactly what I needed!!
