This review is from: Affairs of the Heart (Paperback)
Marcie Treyhorne has followed her husband, Steve, from city to city throughout the years they've been married. She's used to making swift adjustments to new homes, new jobs, and new bosses. But she never had a boss like Jim before! Can it be time for the Treyhornes to test their theoretically "open" marriage? Time to admit a third person, and form an intimate circle?
That's just what happens, and in some respects it turns out wonderfully. But it also turns complicated, in ways none of the trio anticipated.
Kristie Leigh Maguire doesn't make the mistake of substituting sex for plot and characterization. She generates enough heat to melt your glasses while you're reading, but not at the expense of featuring believable characters and telling a darn good story. Don't miss this one if ultra-sensual romance is your cup of tea.
Marcie Treyhorne, heroine of DESERT HEAT, has been through many moves during her long marriage to Steve, whose job requires that. Always before she's adjusted and coped. But this is the first time she's left a lover behind, and it's almost more than she can handle.
Steve knows all about Jim, Marcie's lover, because admitting him as a third party in their open marriage was Steve's idea. Marcie's sadness as she tries to settle in at their new home in the mountains, though, goes beyond anything Steve expected. How can he help her get over missing Jim?
Once again the Treyhornes' bedroom action fairly scorches the pages, but this time we readers are in for more than a tale of unconventional romance. As we pass through a turning point in Marcie's life with her, the questions she asks herself seem eerily familiar.
Enjoyable resolution to what really does turn out to be the second half of a two-part tale.
