Avon Impulse has released FATAL HEAT, the first of three sizzling e-novellas from erotic romance author Lisa Marie Rice featuring heroes with an occupation that has recently captured the world’s fascination: Navy SEALs.
Rice’s work has been featured in Cosmopolitan magazine and recognized by the Rhapsody and Doubleday Book Clubs, and she is beloved by readers. Her novel DANGEROUS LOVER was chosen as an Honorable Mention for Most Luscious Story by All About Romance in 2008. RT Book Reviews said of her latest full-length novel, INTO THE CROSSFIRE, “Rice draws her readers into a modern-day fairy tale with complicated and intense characters.”
In FATAL HEAT, Former Navy SEAL Max Wright is out of the SEAL Teams after being almost killed by an Afghani RPG. He retreats to his former commanding officer’s beach house to lick his wounds. He is viciously angry at the world but finds it hard to snarl at his new neighbor, his commanding officer’s beautiful goddaughter, Paige Waring. And it pisses him off that her ridiculously likable, totally undisciplined dog makes him smile.
As a plant geneticist, Paige has always been more focused on stems and cells than other people, but when she and her dog run into Max, she recognizes the lonely, shattered man behind the rugged exterior. To her mind, sexiness always comes with a white lab coat and an over-educated mind, not with acres of tanned muscle and a tough mind-set.
When Paige’s work becomes the target of criminals and she’s abducted, Max springs into action. Though still terribly wounded, this tough as nails SEAL goes on his last mission-stopping at nothing to save the woman he quickly comes to love.
