Hot-Blooded Hero Reviews
I thought that this book was both entertaining and fun, while also being very emotional in places. The McCrary and Wescott families have hated one another since 1825, and it appears that members of the two families have not found happiness in all that time. Shortly before his death, Harlan Westcott finds a curse written in an old family bible - it promises both the McCrary and Westcott families unhappiness until they satisfy certain requirements, the primary one being marriage between the two. This prompts Harlan to write a codicil in his will requiring his son, Cole Westcott, to fulfill the requirements for breaking the curse. Cole Westcott is not happy that he must marry a McCrary woman in order to receive his forty million dollar inheritance, but he decides to make the best of it and find a temporary McCrary wife. Cole's only encounter with Tess McCrary was when she was thirteen years old and shot him with a BB gun. Tess reluctantly agrees to a temporary marriage with Cole in order to stave off financial ruin for her family, which was mainly caused by the Westcotts. After looking back over all of the misfortune in her family, including the disappearance of her beloved fiance, Tess begins to believe the curse could be true, prompting her to agree to a real marriage instead of a platonic one when the Gaelic curse is translated and is found to have more details. This makes for some steamy scenes between the hero and heroine. Tess is determined not to trust Cole and tries to hold herself aloof from him, but very quickly finds herself realizing that he is an honorable man. Cole realizes almost immediately that he has deep feelings for Tess and isn't going to want to let her go. A week into their marriage, complications arise when the lost fiance of Tess comes home. I really liked this book. The hero was great - good-looking, hot, and when he fell for the heroine, he fell hard. There are a few things I would have liked to have seen handled a little differently when the missing fiance came back, but it all worked out to the HEA in the end. I found this book to be well worth reading. I was not familiar with the author, but will look to see if she has more books.
T777 Apr2000 Sweet Talkin' Guys #4 Cole Westcott finds out his father's will is written so that he must marry to claim his inheritance. If that were all, but he must marry a McCrary to end the curse on both families. His curse of failed marriages and her curse of illness and death. They make a plan to marry to end the curse, the only thing is will they be able to keep it purely business or will they discover they want more.... Glad I discovered Donna Sterling's books, this is another good read, on to another!
I read this one for a Reader's Advisory course (in Library Science land). Although the plot twists seemed contrived and the ending was no surprise, I was actually impressed by the way Sterling wrote dialogue. What's more, Sterling managed to keep the dialogue snappy despite her failure to develop the characters in any meaningful way. For those wondering about "steaminess" factor, I would say Hot-Blooded Hero is rather tame, although this is the first romance novel I've read...
Todo lo que puede hacer un amor, una maldición, y unas ganas de sacar adelante una relación ame a Cole el fue tan lindo
Donna had me frustrated with some of the characters but over all it ended the way I wanted it to end. I will definetly read more of her books
