Hot Spell by Michelle Rowen

Genre: Contemporary Romance with Paranormal Elements

: 2009

Pages: 224

Book Rating: 3.5/5 Crowns

Book Description: Everybody knows there’s no love lost between paranormal investigators Amanda LaGrange and sexy Jacob Caine. They can’t even stand being in the same room together….

Well, unless its an enchanted bedroom.

And they’re trapped there, at midnight.

And the sexual tension suddenly becomes too powerful to resist…

Then that bedroom gets really hot, really fast! But come morning, they still can’t keep their hands off each other. Are they cursed forever? If so, neither one’s complaining….

Book Review: First things first, 'Hot Spell' was indeed very HOT. This book practically steamed like a kettle it was so hot. The sensual scenes were believable, varied, sexy, and had a good undercurrent of emotion. The situation in which the main characters met and then later decided they were in love seemed a tiny bit off, but it could happen, if only in a rare situation, like having psychic abilities.

The plot moved along at a steady pace, there was enough intrigue, sensuality, and drama to keep the reader interested. There are ghosts, psychics, and enough characters introduction to start a whole 'Hot Spell' series.

The main character Amanda was a bit too hard headed for her own good, she didn't allow anyone to get into her heart, and that hurt her frequently, it is understandable though because of her childhood circumstances. Jacob was also hard headed in the fact that he wouldn't fight for what he wants (which is Amanda), it took a lot to get these two characters together, but it was a worthy ride.

This book was enjoyable, the sensuality threw it a cut above some other contemporary romance, Rowen writes with passion and genuineness through the whole story. Lets just hope she makes some sequels, I would love to see what happens to Patrick the empath.
