Dianne Castell's HOT AND IRRESISTIBLE

The winner is: VIRGINIA! Congratulations, Virginia! Please email me at ljodamron@gmail.com with your mailing info and I'll get your goodies in the mail. Thanks to everyone for stopping by! I'll be posting another review, hopefully later this evening, with another contest. Have a great weekend!
Dianne Castell's latest release, HOT AND IRRESISTIBLE, is a fun read with heated days and steamy nights in Savannah. We've vacationed in Savannah a couple of times and absolutely loved it - all of it - The Pirate House, the Waving Girl (my favorite), The Lady & Sons, and spanish moss swaying in the breeze over centuries old cemeteries. Sigh. Dianne takes readers there once again with Bebe and Donovan.

Blurb:
In a city of history, mystery, and more than a few ghosts, four best friends who have never fit in anywhere except with each other are about to get close—and closer still—to four sexy bachelors with alluring secrets of their own…
SOUTHERN COMFORT, SAVANNAH STYLE...
Bebe Fitzpatrick knows how to take care of herself until she stumbles into the arms of a damn sexy Yankee who’s gunning for Savannah’s favorite shady entrepreneur...
Detective Donovan McCabe is as popular as General Grant.What he needs is a better game plan.What he gets is a southern wildcat who makes his toes curl...


My (4 blue ribbon) review:
Sultry, steamy Savannah is the backdrop of Dianne Castell’s most recent release, HOT AND IRRESISTIBLE, guaranteeing a superbly heated tale. Mix in some hauntings, four best friends and an irresistible cop and the ingredients are just right for a spicy romance.
When Boston cop Donovan McCabe goes to Savannah to investigate the questionable business practices of the hugely successful Ray Cleveland, he does so under the weight of emotional baggage remaining after his partner was killed. He’s hoping that the change of scenery will clear his head. He finds himself more confused than ever when he’s partnered with Savannah cop Bebe Fitzpatrick, not so much because of the partnership, but because of the feelings she stirs in him. It isn’t long before Donovan wonders if he’ll survive this investigation with his heart intact.
Bebe, like most everyone in Savannah, doesn’t appreciate Donovan’s suspicions and accusations about local hero Ray Cleveland. Unlike everyone else, Bebe finds herself undeniably attracted to Donovan. They soon discover the mystery they’re investigating runs much deeper and has been in place for much longer than they originally thought.
Dianne Castell has successfully thought of everything in telling Bebe and Donovan’s story – mystery, suspense and steamy romance. Bebe is an original character, not your typical heroine. Donovan is blatantly male and while he oozes self-confidence and self-assuredness, he’s not egotistical or arrogant. His attraction to Bebe knocks him completely off-guard and makes him that much more adorable. I recommend HOT AND IRRESISTIBLE to all romance readers.

I can't resist entering for a "Hot and Irresistible" t-shirt, lol. I love when people say "I just want to read what's on your t-shirt"; right then and there you are advertising for an author. It happened to me at the Cancer Lodge-one of the guys wanted to know and some of the women.

I like the sounds of a southern Wildcat, lol.
