4 Stars! ~~ I just adore Diana Palmer's heroes, they're strong and full of purpose, but when they fall they fall completely and with a thud. Hawke has watched his partner's daughter grow up into a smart, saucy beauty and knows she's the sort of trouble he needs to stay away from. Siri is delightful in her confusion over the mixed messages Hawke sends, and she's not very good at hiding that she truly does adore him. Being forced to work together, she as the reporter to break the explosive news a ...more

He sighed heavily, wrapping her closer to press a hard, rough kiss on her mouth. “I hope you like children,” he murmured. “I want a son.” She smiled up at him. “Then you"ll have to marry me.”

“Blackmail?” he whispered huskily, brushing his hard, warm mouth tantalizingly against hers. “Uh huh,” she agreed softly. “So sue me.”
“I've got something better in mind….” And he bent his head, passionately kissing her in a loving embrace that meant forever.

A little boring, very timely based on the time frame that it was published. Otherwise, if you are looking for a quick, light read, with an easy story line to follow, you will enjoy it.
2.5 stars

Not bad but seemed to end too quickly.

Kate Jamesson è un affermata giornalista. Ma Howard Grayson, avvocato di grido, che la conosce da anni, continua a trattarla come se fosse una bambina.

Bene, si dice Kate, gli farò vedere che sono una donna, e che donna! Lo farò innamorare di me, e poi vedremo.

Kate riesce nel suo intento ma, senza volerlo, è lei a cadere nella rete...

Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo "Incendio di Passione" e "Un uomo irresistibile"

Well, I enjoyed it, though this book is not as good as I expected.

Mostly because Hawke's a dang confusing. I mean, he has hots for Siri yet he keeps pushing her away but when she's too far beyond his reach, he grasp her and won't let go. Annoying. It is cute at some point, but not anymore. I really wish Siri can stand up for herself.

Look forward to read another Diana Palmer! :D

hawke grayson is a lawyer and cyrene jameson is a reporter and thinks she is immune to his charms but it looks as if the lawyer is winning at the moment of proving he is a ladies man or just falling in love with one.

Boring. I don't like the heroine. She's a crybaby, childish, whiny and dramatic. And as usual, the hero runs hot and cold towards her until almost the end. There's absolutely no chemistry between these two.
