Winter Heat – Jennifer Lucia
Reviewed by Jacqui
Jennifer Lucia has a new fan. This is my first read from her and I look forward to more from her. Winter Heat revolves around a criminal defense attorney Kelsey Jones whose life has been turned upside down by criminal who has pledged revenge for her role in him going to prison. Now the US Marshall office has sent in their best marshall, Liam Sullivan. No longer is Kelsey living her life as she planned. Suddenly she is Agnes, visiting a small town in New Hampshire with her “husband” Amos/Liam. Keeping a low profile isn’t easy when you are holed up in a small cabin with a gorgeous man who values his job. She needs to get out and away from the sexual tension that comes from living with Liam. But being exposed could threaten the life of everyone she loves, including Liam. When the chemistry between the two becomes too much, both of them ditch the rules and give into their desires.
Jennifer Lucia does an amazing job of slowly building up the relationship between Liam and Kelsey. But when it does happen, you can’t help but get caught up in their romance. When I started reading, I thought I had the ending figured out but Jennifer Lucia didn’t go the route I thought. It wasn’t predictable. I like that in a story. Congratulation Jennifer Lucia on the release of your latest book. Thank you for letting me read it.
She fought to keep a killer out of jail. Now she’s going to learn to be careful what you wish for…
Kelsey Jones is a criminal defense attorney who keeps innocent men out of jail. She has an unshakable faith that she’s fighting the good fight- until one client isn’t who he says he is. Kelsey changes careers to something safer, vowing never again to be made into a fool. What she didn’t plan on was that client breaking out of prison. Now there’s a serial killer on the loose who has vowed to find Kelsey and make her pay.
Enter U.S. Marshal Liam Sullivan. Humorless, professional- and unbelievably sexy.
Kelsey is thrust into the Witness Protection Program, posing as husband and wife with Liam in a remote cabin. He orders her around and she infuriates him, but they try to make the most of their situation. Can Kelsey and Liam keep it strictly professional or will they create winter heat?
