Touched to the Soul by Elsa Winckler
Zoe Sutherland can’t stand the pushy, arrogant architect Dale Cavallo. He was just too damn sure of himself, too handsome, too…everything. Maneuvered into working as the interior decorator on his latest project, a glamorous new hotel, Zoe can’t keep her mind on the job. And worse, the strange man won’t give her access to the hotel’s floor plans. How is she supposed to finish the design when she doesn’t have the plans? And when the obnoxious man distracts her with every smoldering look, every touch…
Dale has one goal: get rid of the pesky interior designer. Since he’s been forced into close proximity with the beautiful Zoe, everything’s gone downhill. And to make matters worse, she’s only out to further her own career—and he’s not about to give her the hotel’s plans so she can steal his ideas. He needs to get her out of his system, and sleeping with her seems like the best way to do that. When it comes to women, he’s found the best way to handle them is to love ’em and leave ’em. But something strange is happening…because after a night of loving Zoe, he’s finding it harder than ever to leave.
“Hot, hot, hot!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Gerianne Slavinsky
When you read this book make sure you have air conditioning or a fan handy, because it is that hot! The Cavallo brothers are walking, talking, hotness. In this story Dale is the arrogant architect who seems to be nothing but miserable to Zoe. Since the Cavallo and the Sutherland families are now joined by marriage, they are thrown into family gatherings whether they like it or not. Both of their mothers love matchmaking the Sutherland women with the Cavallo men and their plans are sometimes funny, but always thought out. Loved that Zoe’s mom is a romance writer! Dale is drawn to Zoe and his abruptness is his way of dealing with the strong attraction he has that he is trying to fight. Zoe being an interior designer and Dale an architect is the perfect pairing to throw these two together. The heat between the two of them is intense and jumps off the pages. Loved the fact that we learn more about the Dale’s other brothers and Zoe’s sisters. Looks like there is plenty more to look forward to from both of these families!
About the Author
I write love stories because I love reading them. I like the heroines to be feisty, independent and headstrong. And the heroes must be strong but possess a generous amount of sensitivity and should of course, be gorgeous!
