"Legal Heat" has everything you could possibly want in a good Romantic Suspense. Intrigue, sex, death threats, sex , lust, sex, a hot attorney, sex. Yea, loved this story! Oh, and the sex wasn't bad either!
Sarah Castille did a fantastic job of combining the right amount of intrigue, murder, drugs, smoking-hot sex and a little bit of legalese to come up with a wonderful read that holds your attention and keeps you turning the pages. You honestly didn't know what was going to happen next - who was going to turn up dead - who was going to double-cross who. What you do know is that the electricity between Katy and Mark is off the charts!
Katy Sinclair is a mother of 2 with an ex-husband that just won't quit. She threw him out after his numerous affairs and he just won't stay away - especially after his latest conquest left him. Now, he wants back into her life and she just won't let him in. Especially after her encounter with Mark at Carpe Noctem. Life is starting to take a turn for Katy both in her love life and in her career. She just may make partner in her law firm if she nails this case against Darkon Steele, the CEO of the biggest pharmaceutical company in the world. Isn't she in for the surprise of her life when she sees who the attorney for Mr. Steele is?
Mark Richards is one hot, sexy attorney. He's also one of the owners of Carpe Noctem, the fetish club where he meets Katy. She's on a case, he's bartending. Things become extremely hot when he brings her into the wine cellar and then hotter still when they realize they are opposing counsel and can't act on their attraction. Well, that is unless someone steps down from the case. He can't - his law firm depends on Darkon Steele and the cases he throws their way. It's the only way they can stay afloat in this economy. But, when Katy's life starts being threatened and the case she is building against his client starts looking like a good one, he reconsiders. He realizes that he's falling hard for her in and out of the board/bedroom and nothing is going to stand in his way of getting and keeping her. Not Darkon Steele, not her ex-husband and not his partners. After 10 years, he's found the right one!
Legal Heat was extremely well written. It was fast and erotic all at the same time. There was no down time and the villains in the story will have you opening your eyes wide and saying "are you kidding me?" as it all unfolds. I was really impressed with Sarah Castille's writing style and the way the book flowed from character to character, scene to scene - seamlessly and without fault. I cannot wait for Book 2 in the Legal Heat series. I am so hoping that it's going to be Tony's story. What a hot, mysterious cop he is and I can't wait to get my hands on him.
