He knew just the right moves to melt her resistance...
Allowing Simon Hunt to play her partner on her latest assignment probably wasn’t Frankie Paresky’s best idea ever, but the PI found it just as hard as most women did to tell him no! When a chase to solve a long-ago mystery sparked a sizzling attraction between old friends, Frankie wavered between pleasure and panic. Could the best bad boy she’d ever known be the man she’d always love?

Utterly seductive, irresistibly inventive, Suzanne Brockmann’s merry romp celebrates a love as torrid as the Florida sun -- and as steamily passionate as a first kiss! She’d vowed never to be a notch on anyone’s belt or settle for one night only, but could she turn down a dare that promised a real taste of heaven?
In my recent book search, I came across this nifty tidbit at Amazon: "The Kissing Game ",which is book #2 in the Sunrise Key trilogy, will be re-released in February of 2009. To give you a little history, Simon is the brother of Leila Hunt from "Kiss and Tell" (which was just re-released yesterday), and Frankie is Leila's best friend.
I LOVED "Kiss & Tell". It holds a special place in my heart as the first Brockmann book I'd ever read, and now the second book, one that I also enjoyed, will be re-issued. For those of you who haven't read these books, I highly recommend them. Especially if you like straight-up, contemporary romance. Now they may seem a little dated, having been written over 10 years ago, but the genuine emotion is still there, and a good love story stands the test of time, imo.
Which book off your keeper shelf do you think should be



  1. SNORT.

    The Windflower.

    Although I'm finding many people disagree with me. LOL!

  2. This is a hard question for me because all of my favorite books are already or still in print.

    I came over because I've never read this title you've got up. I'm adding it to my TBB list soon (or well, in 2009 I guess, eh?) But thanks for the heads up.

  3. I need to get to a books store. :)

  4. Hey Stacy, can you let me know the best way to contact you? I can't find an email addy for you. I'm at nicola327 AT hotmail DOT com.


  5. Not me Kati! I want my own copy *g*

    Ro, it's vintage Brockmann, so not quite as adventurous as her SEALs, but they are still treasures.

    Toni, you do. Books are awesome *g*

    On it, Nicola.

  6. Wait! What is this? A Brockmann I have never heard of? I must get my grabby hands on it!

    I absolutely ADORED her book Body Language, which was just rerelased. I would love to see one of Mary Balogh's early catagories (Red Rose) rereleased. It was an absolute fav of mine and my copy went the way of Jimmy Hoffa. I blame my mother and her disdain for romance (aka. "trash") novels. I just know she tossed it. ::grumble::

  7. Years by LaVyrle Spencer. :)
