If You Can’t Stand The Heat

4 stars on RT Book Reviews



Resisting temptation has never been so impossible…

Living on the edge used to make maverick war reporter Jack Chapman feel alive. These days he needs some time out before he burns out. So what better distraction than delectable pastry chef Ellie Evans? She’s oh-so-tempting…and sleeping right next door! Perfect for a short-term seduction!

Ellie knows it would be beyond stupid to fall for a guy with ice in his veins who’s always on the move. But daredevil Jack is even more irresistible than her death-by-chocolate cake—and saying no has never been Ellie’s strong point…!

    She’s even got flour on her arm and chest! I’ve already received one of your books so you don’t have to include me in the giveaway. Well done, Joss. Your book sounds just perfect.

        Hi Joss,

        Thank you I did receive your book!

        It was great- good time reading it and read it in one sitting!
        Where is the best place to write a review?

      • josswoodbooks August 27, 2013 at 3:15 pm


        Thanks so much. Amazon would be great but only at the beginning of September. Goodreads, as well. I’d really appreciate it and so glad you enjoyed the book!

        Best wishes

    Joss, thank you very much for my signed copy! First time ever I received a signed copy from an author AND in handwriting!! 🙂 I’ve headed over to Amazon wanting to review your book, but noticed since its only being released in the future, I can’t review it yet. So I headed to Good Reads and “hands-in-the-hair” I tried to review it in the community section and ended up reviewing the book on my account. No idea if anybody can see the review. Yep, I’m new at this! Anyway, so I headed to Kalahari and finally reviewed the book there!
    This was really a great story Joss – thanks’ a mill!
