Recommends it for: anyone
I was introduced to Ms. Blake when I read "Kane." Whiled I thought "Kane" was just all right, I thought "Luke" was much better.

The heroine, April Halstead, is a writer who's been suffering from a seriously bad case of writers block and dealing with threats for her to stop working on her current project.

Will the hero induce the heroine to fall in love with him by the end of Jennifer Blake's novel, Luke? Of course, its a romance novel and the heroine, April Halstead, just happens to be a romance novelist. A romance novelist with an evil enemy out to destroy her. Luckily, Luke shows up to save April -- from herself.

The book seemed to annoy me throughout the book. Idk maybe it was because he had slept with so many women and it annoys me that they didn't really discuss it.

“Moistening her lips, she asked, "That's what this is all about? Bringing me here?"

His hesitation was so slight she almost missed it. "It could be. Probably is, after all."

"You still want to seduce me."

"I want whatever you can give me," he murmured against her ear. "Where we go from here may depend on what I can give you.”
