Book Blurb: Photographer Dominique Jeffries has come to Wyoming to find herself--her creative self, her sexual self. After escaping the engagement from hell, she's dying to break loose and live a little. And seducing a shirtless, sweaty cowhand looks like just the place to start....
Nick Chance isn't exactly a cowhand but, hey, he'll be whatever the lady wants! Only he soon realizes that this is more than just a quick roll in the hay. There's something about Dominique that calls to him, something about her that completes him.
There's only one problem. Dominique wants a fling, not another relationship.
Little does she guess how easily she'll be persuaded to take a Chance--again and again and again!
Review: Vicki Lewis Thompson is one of those authors whose books you can't help but love. She's written for the Harlequin Temptation line and now for Blaze, along with a bunch of other longer releases. Her books are always fantastic, and though the whole cowboy/rancher theme isn't usually my cup of tea, I decided to give Wanted! a go, and I'm glad I did.
Sticking with the Blaze format, Wanted! is full of steamy sex scenes, but they don't get in the way of the plot. In fact, they almost enhance the plot, in this case. Dominique and Nick get together as a one night, or one afternoon stand of hot sex, but things get sticky...erm...complicated.
In four days they fall in love and Nick discovers some life altering secrets his family kept from him. That's a lot going on, for sure, but Vicki manages to make things work out without being too over the top and the characters get there "happily ever after."
This story also sets the stage for the remaining two books in the mini-series that will feature Nick's brother's Jack and Gabe. Meeting them in this story will have you wondering about what sort of woman will fall for them, especially Jack, who really comes across as a bit of a jerk in Wanted!
