    Shameless Recommendation

    Marissa
    Nalini gives us another hot Bishop brother, and even though we met this couple in Rock Hard, I loved learning how Isa and Sailor fell in love. They are hot from their first meeting, and it is an awesome first kiss. Sailor and Isa have a great push-pull relationship, they both know what they want for the future and are blindsided by how much they need and want each other. Sailor is also funny in his interactions with Isa as he breaks down her walls and falls in love with her. I laughed at his antics to stay in her life, he could be sweet and annoyingly alpha at times, but in the end, I found another Bishop man to love.

    Publisher Synopsis

    via Amazon

    New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling…

    Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

    Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

    And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

    As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.

    Excerpt from CHERISH HARD

    ÌÄåSA WONDERED WHAT THE HELL she was doing.

    Being a devil woman, she reminded herself. Having fun for a change. Not being a grandma at twenty-eight years of age.

    Still, she couldn’t stop second-guessing herself as Sailor led her out of the house through a side entrance that opened out into a small, manicured garden. “I’ll have to take off my heels,” she whispered when she saw the pebbled path snaking through the garden.

    “Want a piggyback ride?” A playful grin. “I promise not to molest your thighs.”

    Goosebumps broke out over ÌÄåsa’s skin, her nipples tight. Reckless as she was feeling tonight, she might just have taken him up on his offer if she hadn’t been worried her damn dress would split in two. “Maybe when we’re naked,” she said instead, Devil ÌÄåsa in full flower.

    Groaning, he doubled over as if she’d punched him.

    Her lips twitching despite the melting sexual heat liquefying her bones, she leaned down to slip off her heels.

    Sailor waited, his hand firm around hers until she was done. Taking the heels from her, he carried them in his other hand as ÌÄåsa padded beside him on the grass that lay on this side of the pebbled path. The path ended at a weathered wooden gate, which, when opened, put them at the top of a narrow walkway that led down onto a beach ÌÄåsa couldn’t yet see but could hear.

    Her heart crashed in time with the waves as they made their way down to the beach while the mansion behind them pulsed with light and music. But she didn’t turn and run away, she didn’t stop and talk herself out of it, she didn’t attempt to be a sensible adult. She followed a gorgeous, blue-eyed man down a dirt pathway to an effectively private beach.

    The sand that had been tracked onto the path was gritty under her feet, the air coming off the sea cool but not cold.

    “The water’s going to be icy, isn’t it?” she whispered to his broad back.

    “Don’t worry, spitfire. I’ll keep you warm,” was the deep-voiced response. “Stop here.” Jumping down to the beach, he reached up to grab her by the waist, swinging her down as if she were a featherweight.

    Something fluffy and mushy came to life inside ÌÄåsa. “Here?”

    Shaking his head, he said, “Raj told me there’s like a little cove areaÌ¢‰â‰۝not a proper cove, but caused byÌ¢‰â‰۝ There.”

    ÌÄåsa saw it at once. A huge tree had fallen into the water at some point and smashed up against some rocks where it appeared to be stuck. Between the jutting rocks on either side and the fallen trunk was a naturally created pool. The water within it was pretty calm, and it looked as if they could get to it by clambering over some rocks that didn’t appear too sharp or slippery.

    Of course, she’d be walking over those rocks naked.

    ÌÄåsa looked up at the moon. Imagined it shining on the stark white of her body. Gulped. “Will you close your eyes while I go in the water?” Even Devil ÌÄåsa wasn’t up for blinding him with her glow-in-the-dark form.

    GENRE

    My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
