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 it's 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.

She hates him, and he’s stupefied by her. What happens when they end up locked in an enchanted bedroom together? If you’re reading Hot Spell, you’re in for a hot spell as well.

Some books make you squirm. Others make you think. This book makes you want to grab your special someone. Michelle Rowen writes steamy stories and the desire between Amanda and Jacob sizzles even when they can’t stand being in the same room together.

Although I felt the plot and the reason for Amanda and Jacob to be together was a little forced and a bit expected, I liked it. I liked reading about a woman who really wants to be with her man, even when she’s not convinced he’s her man. And as a hero, you can’t miss with Jacob. He’s an empath and though he’s new to his powers, he’s not afraid to put them to good use. I only wish Amanda allowed her heart to mend and to let Jacob in on more than a superficial level earlier on. As a team, though, they couldn’t be beat.

Now the sex could be confused as a part of the enchantment of the room, but I don’t agree. I think if there’s passion there to start with, enchantment or not, the desire will heat up the mix. In this case, the pages sizzle.

If you want a saucy story for a chilly winter’s night, then you need to read Hot Spell.
