Get SWEPT AWAY with Toni Blake's latest!

I recently had the good fortune of reading an ARC of SWEPT AWAY by Toni Blake. Look at that beautiful cover! Having read and enjoyed *most* of Toni’s previous books, (I say most because yes, there are a few that I’ve missed), I was thrilled to have the opportunity. Thank you, Toni! I would add that I have met Toni on several occasions and yes indeedy, she’s just as beautiful and sweet as the photo on her website shows her to be. She also possesses a terrific sense of humor and is fun to be around!
Here is my review of SWEPT AWAY, to be released September 1, 2006 from Avon Red:
When Katrina “Kat” Spencer makes a solitary escape to her father’s private island one week before her wedding instead of going to Las Vegas for her bachelorette party, the last person she expects to appear, right out of the ocean mind you, is Brock Denton. Brock is the bad boy that Kat attempted, and failed, to seduce on the night of her high school graduation. Shortly after that night Brock unexpectedly and inexplicably left town and had never returned. Brock is the total opposite of Kat’s fiancĂ©, Ian; Kat has been having second thoughts about marrying Ian, and seeing Brock again after so many years makes her question the impending nuptials even more.
Brock can’t believe his eyes when he swims ashore and spots the grown up Kat, his “kitten,” looking even more beautiful than she was ten years ago, something he wouldn’t have thought possible. Brock had good reasons to leave town, reasons he had never shared with Kat and still would prefer not to share. He isn’t the bad boy any longer, now an FBI agent who narrowly escaped an undercover operation gone wrong just before washing up on Kat’s island.
When Kat and Brock act on the decade-old attraction between them, Kat needs to decide whether she will go through with her wedding. Any decision she makes will greatly impact her future as well as that of her family. Brock makes a startling discovery while on the island, one that places the security and success of her fiancé and her father in his hands.
Toni Blake has given readers yet another wonderful romance, complete with more than a bit of burning sensuality, just the right amount of action and suspense, and a handful of secondary characters that add realistic touches of family and friends. A satisfying side story delves into the troubled relationship of Kat’s parents and is a very nice touch. Flashbacks into Kat and Brock’s past successfully define the circumstances and heartache that helped mold them into the adults that they have become.
It is easy to recommend SWEPT AWAY to readers of sensual romance, you will not be disappointed.
