After her marriage fails, Amanda Zachary's career becomes the most important thing in her life. Negotiating a successful merger between her company and Brant Computers will win her prestige in the business world. Company president Eric Brant is onboard with the idea. But when Amanda arrives in his office, it's his cousin Simon who greets her— and Simon is anything but agreeable.

Simon never met a woman as passionate and driven as Amanda—or as devastatingly attractive. He can't decide if he wants to put her on the next plane home, or kidnap her and spend a long weekend showing her exactly the kind of negotiating he likes best.

Debut author Monroe pens a sizzling romance with a well-developed plot. In chapter after chapter there's sexual tension between two characters with undeniable chemistry. Mix in snappy dialogue and dry humor, and you have one red-hot, passion-filled read. (Sep., 336 pp., $14.00)
