One dare and he’ll lose his heart…
Determined to qualify for the fire department’s grueling physical, former marine Jessie Sullivan never gives up, despite the pins in her leg. The last thing she needs is a tall, incredibly hot action movie star sharing her gym…and who makes her want to trade in her reps for some sexy physical activity. Of the naked kind.
Blake Johnston is more than just a Big Screen Sex Machine, and he’s willing to prove it. Especially to a spirited and sexy ex-marine like Jessie. But when a harmless dare leads to sizzling fireworks, Jessie and Blake’s workout ends up generating some serious heat between the sheets. And it’s more than Jessie could have imagined. Much, much more. But flings don’t last forever.
And in two weeks, Jessie will have to say goodbye to her red-hot Christmas fantasy…
"The Movie Star's Red Hot Holiday Fling is fast-paced and the lead characters each have enough of a back story to make them interesting and likable. I liked that Jessie wasn't some simple girl who was swept away by a movie star and that Blake wasn't some pompous celebrity who lived a life of privilege." - Bookaholicism
"In a nutshell, this is an emotional novella, with two well-defined characters and a happy ending that I enjoyed very much." - Harlequin Junkie

Tell me…what is your idea of a hero?
For Jessie, her blinders were fully in place and her mindset was as follows: a hero is a one who dodges real bullets and even takes a few for his or her country. Watching her blinders come off was awesome! Not that I would ever say that those who serve are not... ...more

It should be noted that I liked what I read but disappointed in sho... ...more

Loved the heroine Jessie, what a powerful character. Over all this book was very enjoyable. I would recommend g... ...more
