This installment of the Hot, Hard series picks up just a few days after Hot, Hard and Howling. Sonja Ambercroft is in a predicament that she has no desire to get her sister or her Prime boyfriend involved in. Sonja is determined to get her cousin back from the kidnapper. She’s following the ransom note. Get the talisman to the drop off without notifying law enforcement. In a desperate attempt to find out more about her cousin and the evil kidnapper Sonja decides to use the talisman to her advantage. Sonja just never guessed that law enforcement and outside assistance would be thrown her way.
Ray has been exiled by the Council and thrown off the police force. He has taken to solitary living away from everyone and become a very recluse mountain man. Once a cop, always a cop, a policeman’s intuition never dies. He knows there is more going on than what Sonja has let on. Does he help her or does he save his own hide from getting into more trouble with the Council?
This was a very enjoyable read. I liked Ray. He wanted to do what was best on a larger scale and follow his instincts, but he also wanted to assist Sonja in seeing her task through. Sonja is having erotic fantasies about Ray. The fantasies are distracting her from the task at hand, getting her cousin safely home. Sonja and Ray worked great as a couple. While rescuing Kara they were able to help each other through their problems from the past that have held them down for far too long. Hot, Hard and Hexing is an action packed sexy adventure.
