Author Stella Mills has writers' block. Her swashbuckling debut romance was a mega-hit—and the world is crying out for a sequel. Problem is, her sexy-as-sin hero was based on childhood friend Rick Granville, whose dangerously delicious eyes have never sparkled at her that way!So being forced to spend weeks on adventurer Rick's luxury yacht could be just the thing to trigge ...more

This book should come with a WARNING. Do NOT choose this book to read while sitting at the bedside of a dying relative. You will make enemies when you glare at the nursing staff for interrupting you. Because you will not want to put this book down. This book also has really sizzling love scenes, so it is not the book to read in the presence of your Mother-in-Law. Even if she is in a coma and will not notice your heavy breathing and hot flushes.

Seriously this book has some wow factor. I always lo

THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP by author Amy Andrews is a Harlequin Presents release for January 2013.

After releasing her debut novel, author Stella Mills was blocked now as she had based her hero on her childhood friend, Rick Granville and can no longer write more.

She was on Rick’s luxury yacht and it just might trigger her inspiration. But her fictional fantasies were turning into reality now.

Rick had always fantasized about her, but after reading her book realized that she had harboured feelings fo

This was my first book by Amy Andrews and I have to say, it won't be my last. I really enjoyed this.

Stella is a romance writer who is suffering from writer's block after the huge success of her first book. She begrudgingly goes on a treasure hunt with her long time friend Rick, who just happens to be who the hero of her book was based on. When Rick realizes he was the basis for Stella's hero, he decides to have some fun with her by recreating some of the scenes from her book. (Both of them have

This is a friends to lovers story with a chick-lit feel.

The heroine is a romance novelist with writer's block. The hero is a friend from childhood who was the inspiration for the pirate hero of her romance novel. The story opens when the hero arrives at her door to take her on a treasure hunt for a lost ship, The Mermaid, because it had been her father's dying wish. Just seeing the hero and remembering all the games they played while they sailed all over the world, gives the heroine inspiration

Wow what to say about this book. Came up on my face book page, and I asked for a link to the kobo site, Amy was worried that it had been price to high at $6.00. Best $6 bucks I have spent.

Stella and Rick are a wonderful couple who just needed a push in the right direction. The whole story within a story was a brilliant idea, I kinda want the other story now too LOL. I loved the pace and while a quickish read felt just the right length. Those steamy love scenes were perfect for the characters and

I like friend-to-lover romances, but the semi-secondary story with the characters from the heroine's book just didn't do it for me. One of the reasons I don't read historical romances is because I don't like the antiquated language and writing style that is often used, so having to read passages from a fake historical romance didn't win any favors from me.

A good friends to lovers story. Heroine has a bad case of writer block, then comes the hero, her childhood friend and the man she used as a hero in her first book. The hero reads her book and enacts the sexy bits. I was enjoying the book when it ended suddenly with the obligatory ILU, starting with the hero.

If I had to give someone a copy of what I considered to be the perfect romance novel, I would hand her a copy of Amy Andrews The Devil and the Deep. It is a friends to lovers category romance that has emotional and sexual tension! Rick and Stella are the children of ocean salvage workers and spent most of their childhood growing up together playing on boats and waters dreaming of sunken treasure. Rick grows up to inherit Stella's dads business, and Stella grows up to be an acclaimed romance nove ...more

The Devil and the Deep by Amy Andrews is one sexy entertaining read, in this book we get a double dose of sexy with not one but two sexy heroes; a pirate and a treasure hunter and both are equally captivating ;)

Stella and Rick grew up sailing the high seas together searching for treasure with Stella’s father. When Stella’s father passes away he leaves Stella and Rick one half of a treasure map each as his legacy.

She glanced at Rick. ‘You got the same?’
He nodded a

I like Stella and Rick's relationship. A childhood friendship fringed with sexual tension ignored on both side most of the time. Rick is the star of Stella's fantasies and the inspiration for the hero of her historical romantic book.
Once Rick read the book and knew he was the hero, he can't take Stella out of his mind. It doesn't help that they have to spend many weeks on board of his boat in an adventurous trip in search of a pirate's treasure. Stella, who was suffering a writer'

Note to readers; Do NOT start this book at 10pm. Otherwise you'll be staring down the barrel of 3am before you even contemplate sleep and next day you'll look like hell! Or maybe that's just me. However, as always with Amy, it's worth every eye-watering yawn.

Here we have Rick and Stella, two dynamic awesome characters who you can't help but fall in love with. I loved the writing. I loved the setting. I loved the secondary Diana. Hell, I even loved the dead guy! I adored Rick with all my heart an

This book was everything I as reader could ask for but also so much more. It had the awesome factor, the romance, the heat and passion so hot that it not only left me breathless it left the pages burning,and the action adventure I so often seek!

I am a huge Matthew Mcconaughey fan and the author's hero of Rick was so like him in the movie Fools Gold! Yes, I kid you not ladies, the movie might have given me the treasure hunting and very sexy Matthew but the author of this book gave me the hero al

This one hit exactly the right spot for me. I basically didn't put it one for one whole evening; cooking dinner, getting the kids to bed – kept it in my hand the whole time. It's narrowly focused, sexy, warm, and gave me lots of happy feelings. Rick and Stella were interesting, nice to each other, and flirty without taking themselves too seriously. The setting was so rich and sensual, it'll make you long for the ocean and the stars and your very own first love.

scorching... If you want to read a story ,which is light, scorching, and has you wishing you were in the story... this is for you. I for one wanted to jump headlong into the story and experience first hand the sea, the reefs and the hero all for myself. It's just totally refreshing... and soothing and I felt as if I can smell and feel the sea breeze... had me longing for it... and I know that if ever I get the chance to cruise I'll definitely be thinking about this story . Just plain loved it :)

I really recommend this book. And true enough as mentioned by one of the reviewers not to start late at night, I didn't take the advise as I couldn't wait after seeing that it has such high reviews. I finished the book in one session and ended at 5:00 am.

This book has great humor and an interesting story line. It's also the first time I read a book by A. Andrews. I would try some of her other novels, too.

I absolutely adored this book. It was so unique for this type of book. The lust was on slow boil and hot. The storyline was great. I loved the salvage angle with our hero and heroine. The pirate and his lady. Loved it!

Such sweet story with very likable characters (Rick is to die for!) and of course steaming hot 'scenes'. That's exactly what contemporary romance is about IMHO. Definitely recommend it.
