Throwback Thursday - Fever

Author: Elizabeth Lowell
First published in 1983 by Harlequin

Rye McCall has a problem. He's got an obsessive father who's trying to ensure a dynasty, but Rye's rebellious and determined to lead his own life. And to make matters worse, he's just met a woman who may thwart both men's plans. For one brief, high-country summer, Rye manages the impossible--to keep his father's world at bay. But he's lost control of his own plans--he's fallen in love with Lisa Johansen. Now he's told too many lies for his happiness to last. He knows that. What he doesn't know is how to finally tell her the truth.

Fever has everything that I have come to love about the older Harlequin romances: cheesy lines, bad fashion, steamy loves scenes, a big misunderstanding and a HEA for a couple that I can believe in. Rye is a total alpha male and Lisa is the stereotypical, naive wall flower who doesn't know her own potency or worth. Yes, it's cheesy, but you just can't stop reading it.
Being written by Elizabeth Lowell guarantees it will have at least one hot steamy sex scene. This one has one that goes on for pages and pages!

I definitely recommend this early work by Ms. Lowell. It is a quick read and worth the afternoon it will take to devour it!
