Taken by storm…
Surprised by the attentions of handsome, sexy Rodrigo Torbellino and seduced into a one-night stand, curvy Erika Bergstrom shares a night of pleasure and walks away to give herself some distance.
When fate brings them together again, she’s pleased when he demands more. But does he want her or a business deal with her family? Their whirlwind affair raises the stakes. Will it be business or pleasure?
Erika opened her mouth to respond then looked back at the mirror. If she opened the door he would either run screaming from the store, never to return, or lick his full lips again. Either way, she’d know if she stood a chance in hell of getting laid. And if she wanted to get laid, he’d have to see her naked anyway. She studied her image. Erika Bergstrom was sexy. At least the one in the mirror was. She unlatched the door and opened it, framing herself for him to see.
He had his back to the door, but when he heard it open, he turned to look. He blinked and his jaw dropped. For one second, she decided this had been a very bad idea. Then he started to smile. It was the most lethal, sexy smile she’d ever seen.
“I think you said you wanted to see for yourself that it fit?” she asked, her voice husky as she wondered where her courage had come from.
“It fits perfectly. Exquisitely.”
He moved toward her like a jaguar stalking prey. She smiled and stood her ground because she wanted him to capture her. Rigosettled his hands at her waist and herded her back into the changing room before pushing the door closed behind him.
“So, do you think your assistant will like this, Rigo?” Erika gestured at the negligee while she met his warm brown gaze.
“I like this. Sofia’s opinion is irrelevant,” he sighed. “You are a stunning woman, Erika Bergstrom.”
Her nipples tightened with excitement and hunger. There was nothing she could do to hide it as his gaze caressed her. After finishing his perusal of her body, his eyes returned to hers as he slowly lowered his head, giving her ample time to draw away.
Instead, she skimmed her arms along his chest to circle his neck. She pressed herself against him and lifted her head for his kiss. Rigo smiled down at her, cupping her jaw with one large hand. He brushed her lower lip with his thumb as his head dipped down. He paused just before their lips touched—their eyes locked and their warm breaths mingled.
“I want to kiss you, Erika. May I?”
She smiled. Erika couldn’t remember the last time a man askedpermission for a kiss. It was old-fashioned…gentleman-like…chivalrous—but also sexy as hell.
“You may kiss me, Rigo,” she murmured, softening her lips to accept his mouth on hers.
Erika sighed as their lips met. His mouth was soft and his kiss felt like a drink of champagne. Sparkling. Tingling. Heady. She shivered against him as the hand curved against her cheek began to trail down her neck and bare shoulder. She slipped her fingers into his thick black hair, marveling at the silky texture as his tongue traced the seal of her mouth, beguiling her to open and let him inside.
Whirlwind Affair is an enjoyable novella that manages to be both sexy and sweet. It's part of the Erotically Bound series, but can be read as a standalone. Unlike the other two books I've read in this series, Whirlwind Affair is not a BDSM romance but it is still extremely hot. One of the things I love most about Francesca Hawley's books is that her heroines are real women with sexy curves - and her heroes love each and every one of those curves. This is another great story from a writer who is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.
Erika is a forty year old divorcee with two grown up daughters. She's beautiful and sexy but thanks to her ex husband she has very little confidence. When she meets Rodrigo she finds it difficult to believe that such a gorgeous man would find her attractive, so after a mind blowing night together she walks away from him. Fate brings them back together - but does Rigo really want Erika, or a business deal with her family?
OMG, Rigo is an amazing character - I'm completely in love with him! He's ridiculously sexy - I found myself feeling jealous of Erika! Their story is fun and entertaining so Whirlwind Affair receives five out of five stars.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
Hi. I’m Francesca Hawley and I’m a fat chick. A woman with dangerous curves just like my heroines.
Many people don’t like the word, “fat” but I do because it’s the truth and I’ve learned to own it. I am a fat chick and I always will be. When I first began to read romance, the heroines were all thin. I kept wondering, where were the fat heroines? I wanted to read about a fat chick who loved herself—or at least learned to love herself—and a hot alpha hero who liked her jiggly bits just the way they were. Since I didn’t find many big girls to read about, I decided to write about them, so Francesca Hawley – author of Romance with Dangerous Curves was born.
In a Francesca Hawley romance, my readers will find authentic, sensual, fat heroines who love and are loved by their intense, passionate, and seductive Alpha heroes. I hope you enjoy their dangerous curves just as much as their hunky heroes do.
