3.0 out of 5 stars An amalgamation of previous works
After waiting with baited breath to get my hands on this book, I was very disappointed when I finally finished it. This is the only Sandra Brown book which I've not consumed within days. I've read more Sandra brown books than I can remember and because of this I see the obvious repetition of characters and scenarios from her previous books.

Sandra Browns 'white hot' combines romance, revenge and love. This book has twist and turns in it which makes it hard to put down, and all the way through you are practically on the edge of your seat with anticipation.
The story is set in Destiny a small Louisiana town, a suicide has occurred in a small fishing camp, but Deputy Scott suspects foul play and Chris, Danny's brother is first on his list of suspects. Sayre Hoyle now known as Sayre Lynch, fled from her small hometown, because of the grudge she has for her father Huff. Now she is back to help find the truth about her brother Danny's death. There is one problem though Beck Merchant, the family's attorney is trying to stop her from finding the full truth. Even though she has a low opinion of him, Sayre finds herself irresistibly drawn to him.
Whilst this is happening the Steel Mill, which the Hoyles own, is facing being shut down because accidents seem to occur there, and a person who is helping it to get shut down is Charles Neilson, but he is not who he seems to be.
I recommend this book, because it is a great book to bury your self in, the outcome is so unbelievable, but it makes a lot of sense. I defiantly give my thumbs up to 'White hot' by Sandra Brown, and I can not wait to read more of her books.

This review is from: White Hot (Paperback)
After waiting with baited breath to get my hands on this book, I was very disappointed when I finally finished it. This is the only Sandra Brown book which I've not consumed within days. I've read more Sandra brown books than I can remember and because of this I see the obvious repetition of characters and scenarios from her previous books.
The story centres around a woman called Sayre who ran away from her domineering father and cruel older brother. Her youngest brother commits suicide and she returns to her home town to attend his funeral, only to discover that there was foul play involved in his death. She stays to uncover the mystery of his death and reluctantly feels an attraction for her father's lawyer who she tars with the same brush as her brother.
Sandra seems to have a big problem with the south, because almost all her 'baddie' male characters are from there and seem to have an evilness about them that pollutes almost everything and this theme is again re-visited in Sayre's father. His character can be found in 'the witness'& 'fat Tuesday'. Then her brother's character can be found in 'the witness' & 'unspeakable'. Additionally, I could guess what made Sayre run away from her father about a 3rd into the book, just from reading another book, the name of which I won't give away - lest I spoil the book for those reading this.
What particularly bothered me was the use of the 'n' word in the book and the presence of the 'mammy' character. Sayre's mother died when she was young and so she was brought up by a black woman. This black woman who raised her is still living in destiny and in the same house in which Sayre grew up and having raised the children of Sayre's father, he still uses the 'n' word to describe her. It's almost as if the civil rights movement passed this town by. I appreciate that the town ' destiny' is a small backward town with small town ideas about equality, and to be fair Sayre's father never actually calls the 'mammy' character a 'n' to her face, but he still shows her the disdain that some old slave master might show towards a slave whom he tolerates because of their usefulness. If this book was written in 1960,70 or even 80, I might ignore it, like I did with Sandra's book 'Slow Heat in Heavan', but this book is written in 2004. Anyway, I leave it to you to judge. But for me, this book was just a re-hash of old works, and has made me less of a fan. I will give it 3 stars only because the final twist was unexpected.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Hot steamy romance combined intrigue and family drama - seriously hot - engrossing plot - its WHITE HOT, 16 Sep 2010
This review is from: White Hot (Kindle Edition)
In this Sandra Brown mystery - there is intrigue, family drama, corruption and a twisted tale of murder.

The tale is based on a twisted family. Money, greed and revenge manipulates actions. While a serious lack of humanity, equality, accountability is oppressed beneath extreme capitalism. However, the author presents a mature understanding behind the evil so that we feel some sympathy for the "villains" even if we abhor their actions.

There are certain details I'm not too keen on - such as Sayre and her school girl romance. She's a silly little girl and some of that is still present (she needs to grow up). However, Beck redeems this story - he is a hot hero. The chemistry between these two is WHITE HOT. It sizzles off the page. You can feel the tension between the two characters as soon as they meet. She vows to destroy everything Beck stands for but she isn't aware that there is more to Beck than meets the eye.

Synopsis:
When she hears that her younger brother Danny has committed suicide, Sayre Lynch relents from her vow never to return to Destiny, the small Louisiana town in which she grew up. She plans to leave immediately after the funeral, but instead soon finds herself drawn into the web cast by Huff Hoyle, her controlling and tyrannical father, the man who owns the town's sole industry, an iron foundry, and in effect runs the lives of everyone who lives there.As she feared, Sayre learns that nothing has changed. Her father and older brother, Chris, are as devious as ever, and now they have a new partner-in-crime, a canny and disarming lawyer named Beck Merchant, who appears to be their equal in corruption.

Soon, Sayre is thrown in closer contact with Beck and becomes convinced that something more sinister is at play than her father's usual need to dominate people and events. As she sets out to learn just what did happen to Danny, she comes to realize that there are many secrets in Destiny -- secrets that hide decades of pain and anger, and that threaten at any moment to erupt and destroy not only her father and brother, but perhaps Sayre herself.

Underneath the rigid control that the Hoyles exert over the town, trouble is brewing. Old hatreds foster plans for revenge, past crimes resurface, and a maverick deputy sheriff determines that Danny Hoyle's death was not suicide, but murder.

As tensions mount, threatening to ignite a powder keg of long-held hostility, Sayre finds herself inextricably drawn into a struggle with striking laborers, her unscrupulous father, and her own emotions over the love/hate relationship that is growing with Beck, a man apparently with his own agenda, and mysteries of his own.
