White Heat by Cherry Adair - Review

White Heat
T-Flac/Black Rose Trilogy #2

Back Cover Copy

The last person on earth that art restorer Emily Greene wants to see is the devil-may-care Max Aries. She hasn’t forgotten (or forgiven) the way Max dropped into her life a year ago, stole her heart, then vanished without a word. But the prodigal playboy returns with shocking news: His father’s recent death was no suicide, but in fact murder . . . and Emily’s life is also in danger.

Intel from Max’s control at the counterterrorist organization T-FLAC reveals that the Black Rose terror cell is involved: a chilling revelation that elevates the threat level almost as high as the sexual tension bristling between Max and Emily. Max isn’t about to take his eyes off her─though only partly for professional reasons─and Emily finds it increasingly difficult to deny her feelings for him.

Crisscrossing Europe and piecing together tantalizing clues to a sinister plot, Max and Emily must put their lives on the line . . . and still be ready when the heat between them flares white hot.

When I think of an art restorer, I kinda think of a quiet, mousy, geeky, type girl. Those words do not describe Emily! She is smart, beautiful, and willing to try anything at least once, and once was not enough when she tried out Max!

Again, Cherry Adair hit all my favorite marks with this story. Edge of your seat intrigue, mystery, and of course lots and lots of action-both in bed and out of it!

I also love reading a series where we can get a glimpse of characters from past books and see what they are up to now. Those T-Flac Guys & Girls always have interesting things going on.

(from Goodreads)

Always an adventurer in life as well as writing, New York Times best-selling author Cherry Adair moved halfway across the globe from Cape Town, South Africa to the United States in her early years to become a interior designer. Now a resident of the Pacific Northwest she shares the award- winning adventures of her fictional T-FLAC counter terrorism operatives with her readers.

Cherry settled in beautiful San Francisco, where she started what eventually became a thriving interior design business. "I loved being a designer because it was varied and creative, and I enjoyed working with the public." A voracious reader when she was able to carve out the time, Cherry found her brain crowded with characters and stories of her own. "Eventually," she says, "the stories demanded to be told."

When asked why she chooses to write romantic action adventure, she says, "Who says you can’t have adventure and a great love life? Of course if you’re talking about an adventurous love life, that’s another thing altogether. I write romantic suspense coupled heart-pounding adventure because I like to entertain, and nothing keeps readers happier than a rollercoaster read, followed by a happy ending."

Popular on the workshop circuit, Cherry gives lively classes on writing and the writing life. Pulling no punches when asked how to become a published writer, Cherry insists, "Sit your butt in the chair and write. There's no magic to it. Writing is hard work. It isn't for sissies or whiners."

Cherry loves to spend time at home. A corner desk keeps her focused on writing, but the windows behind her, with a panoramic view of the front gardens, are always calling her to come outside and play. Her office has nine-foot ceilings, a fireplace, a television and built-in bookcases that will house approximately 3,500 paperback books.

"What can I say? My keeper shelf has been breeding in the middle of the night, rather like drycleaners' wire clothes hangers.”
