     When Joe Tedesco gets the call from Carly Pendleton, he thinks it’s a joke. He did not enter a "Sexiest Average Joe" contest, but apparently, he’s just won. His prize is a Caribbean cruise where he’ll have to endure a photo shoot with a supermodel. But there is one perk other than being in a tropical paradise--beautiful, spirited Carly.
     Carly’s notorious father dragged their family name through the mud, so she’s fighting to get past her damaged name and make her fashion blog a success. It’s bad enough dealing with a spoiled, demanding diva of a supermodel, but sexy Joe is pushing her over the edge. Lust is impossible to resist, but she’ll walk away once the cruise ends.
     This fun entry to the "Wrong Bed" books taps into deep emotional waters, from prickly Carly to Joe, who embodies his title of "Sexiest Average Joe." Even supermodel Piper is a surprisingly sympathetic character. Jillian Burns never lets her readers down, and this sizzling tale is no exception.

Claire Brooks' best friend just disappeared while they were on vacation in New Orleans. Her last location was at a vampire bar and Claire is desperate to find her.  Though it’s enormously out of her comfort zone, she goes to Once Bitten in hopes of learning something that can help her locate Julia because she has not been missing long enough for the police to help her.

When Rafe Moreau first sees Claire, all he can think about is how she could damage his business. Then he sees her in some better‑fitting clothes, and he discovers he wants the sexy woman hiding underneath. He is unwilling to trust her because his rough upbringing has left him gun‑shy and with no faith in the goodness of others. She will need his street savvy as well as his tender touch to stay safe long enough to find her friend.

Take a trip to the gritty side of New Orleans in Jillian Burns' irresistible, atmospheric tale. Rafe is dangerous, but he’s also delectable, and readers will be primed for this sometimes strange but always awesome trip.

*****

 

The first time Kristen Turner sees Luke Andrews, he's the mysterious stranger who saves the life of a customer at the bar where she waitresses. He does not stay for thanks and disappears. Then she learns that he is her neighbor, but there is much to keep the lovers apart.

Luke is an army doctor whose experiences in Afghanistan have left him with debilitating nightmares and sleepless nights. Kristen has her own demons. A recent bout with breast cancer leaves a legacy of physical and emotional scar but also a determination to live her life to the fullest. She pursues Luke along with her dream of taking a prize‑winning photograph, but her own hang‑ups create barriers to intimacy.

Jillian Burns' latest is an emotionally moving masterpiece with characters whose profound issues create convincing and formidable roadblocks to happiness. The tropical setting will delight. A secondary romance between Kristen's friend and a Hawaiian native is icing on the cake.

Alex Hughes and Mitch McCabe have been friends for a very long time.  Since Mitch's marriage fell apart, he's been different. His relentless playboy ways and misogyny is wearing Alex down, especially because she's been in love with him for a very long time. She got herself reassigned to get away from him but couldn't stay away. She's sick of Mitch not seeing her as a woman; maybe a makeover will finally open his eyes.

A hideous childhood and an unfaithful wife cemented Mitch's view that women can never be trusted. Seeing Alex in high heels and a sexy red dress forces him to see her as a desirable woman; he's in turmoil. She's always been his buddy, his wingman. Now he can't stop thinking about sex with his best friend. His demons and trust issues put his relationship in danger, especially when he and Alex succumb to desire.

Jillian Burns' latest is the third in a series, and while it does stand alone, Alex and Mitch's relationship has been brewing for a while.  Readers of all three tales get the biggest payoff. Mitch is a pretty tortured hero, and Alex is his perfect match, though he cannot see it.
