Image of Some Like It Hot

Andersen’s second Razor Bay tale arrives just in time for hot beach reading. While overall a pleasure, some of the characters’ voices seem unconvincing and not terribly authentic. Realism isn’t always what one is looking for in a fun romance, though, and this is just the ticket if you want a little smart with your sass.

World traveler Harper Summerville has come to Razor Island, where she finds her niche — at least for the summer. Max Bradshaw, the rugged sheriff’s deputy and a former Marine, gives her hot flashes that have nothing to do with the weather. They shouldn’t get involved, but Max can’t let his desire go. Opposites attract, and sparks fly in this story featuring a scared, handsome hero and a stubborn woman with a vulnerable side. (HQN, Aug., 336 pp., $7.99)
