Genre: Erotic Romance
Just like Hart's other books, this one delves deeply into all of the characters -- but heroine Grace has no secrets from the reader. Use of first-person point of view makes everything immediate and intense, from the sizzling sex to Grace's banter with Sam and Jack to the more emotional scenes with her family. A keeper.
Funeral director Grace Frawley leads a conventional life -- at least on the surface. Uninterested in the kind of settled, married life her sister is living, she engages the sexual services of men through a discreet escort service. But one night she mistakes musician Sam Stewart for her date -- and after a sizzling encounter between the sheets, she can't seem to put him out of her mind. Even an intense affair with a gorgeous, talented young man named Jack doesn't help.
Eventually Grace is forced to face her feelings about her family, her own conduct -- including the deeper reasons she's avoiding intimacy -- and what's happening with Sam. But working through things isn't easy, especially since Sam's on the verge of moving on. (SPICE, Jan., 432 pp., $13.95)
