Let Them Talk

Susanna Carr

Releasing February 1st, 2015

Harlequin Blaze

A risqué book club inspires three women to be naughty… 


Sydney Tate is writing a fictional erotic diary inspired by the town's mouthwateringly hot mayor, Matthew Stone. Then her "diary" disappears and suddenly Matthew is bringing all of Sydney's secret fantasies to life! 


Armed with a seduction how-to guide, librarian Isabel Bennett is pulling out every trick in the book to tempt Sean Hawkins. The oh-so-sexy businessman is about to find out just how bad this good girl can be… 


Laura Dawson is desperate to get her gorgeous neighbor, Connor Adams, into her bed. So she turns to an aphrodisiac cookbook to serve up the most tantalizing, irresistible dish Connor has ever seen herself.


There was something different in the way he looked at her today. His light blue eyes held a predatory gleam.

Impossible. The man had no interest in hunting her. It was wishful thinking on her part.

"Why are you here, Sean? I don't remember you coming into the library before." She tilted her head as she considered his lack of visits. "Do you have a library card?"

"I wanted to talk to you about your book club," he said. "I want in."

She blinked a few times. She couldn't possibly have heard that correctly. "Excuse me?"

"I want to join your book club."

He seemed serious. "Why?" The word dragged out of her mouth.

"Why do most people join a book club? To discuss books and read something out of their comfort zone."

Isabel frowned. "You only read e-mails and business magazines."

"True." Sean nodded. "Time to broaden my horizons, don't you think?"

"No. What are you up to, Sean?" She couldn't figure out what his angle could be.

"When's your next meeting?"

She straightened her shoulders. No, no, no. He wasn't going to invade her book club. She wasn't going to have him ask provocative questions or slice through her arguments. Okay, so that would be welcome in most book clubs, but she wasn't going to share her thoughts with him about these books. "It's by invitation only."

"Then invite me."

She shivered at his low and rough voice. "No."

"Why not?"

"You wouldn't understand." Their meetings were her safe place. A time to bounce ideas off her friends and ask questions. After plenty of Sunday dinners with Sean, she knew the book club's discussions would completely deteriorate into a battle of wills if he was there.

Sean rested his chin against his hand. "Are you worried that I would learn all your secrets? Find out all the tricks and tips from your readings?"

It was a concern. Knowledge was power. These books emboldened her and she was learning how to reach out and take what she wanted. But the bold side of her wasn't fully formed, and she couldn't discuss these subjects with him until it was.

"I want to join the book club," he said firmly.

"No." Never. Not going to happen.

Review: Let Them Talk reminded me of one of my favorite Blaze novels from a few years back, Stephanie Bonds Seduction By The Book. If you read that book, you will definitely love this one. Its both similar and different at the same time, if that makes any sense at all.

I love the idea of erotic fiction or even non-fiction inspiring a relationship. Don't we all? 

This book is comprised of three stories relating back to each of the girls, Sydney, Isabel and Laura. Each has a book that helps her get her man, one is an erotic diary, another is a self help book on seduction and the other is a cookbook. The books provide a lot of inspiration for the girls to get their guys.

Of the three stories, my favorite was the first one with Sydney and Matthew. I think it was the hottest of the three stories too, as Sydney's own diary, albeit a fake one, was the inspiration for the racy parts with Matthew.

Isabel and Laura's stories are the typical good girl wants to be bad and bad girl wants to be good sort of thing. With Isabel and Sean I would have liked to have seen her stand up to her father who was a little to "reputation" oriented and with Laura and Connor, well, I would have like a little more "bad."

There's something for everyone in this one. I always like the story within a story Blazes, especially around a holiday.

This is a great Blaze! And one for the keeper self!
