New York architect Ryan Stoddard has learned from his grandmother that the sexy Jade Maguire has stolen a valuable family painting. Ryan makes it his business to retrieve the painting even if it means traveling to Savannah, Georgia and getting up close and personal to the wickedly hot and tempting Jade.

Jade has her own reasons for wanting to tempt the devilishly handsome Ryan. It seems Mr. Stoddard has recently broken her sisterís heart and Jade is out for revenge on this handsome playboy. She intends to show him a thing of two about loving 'em and leaving 'em. Things are about to become wickedly hot even by Savannah, Georgia standards.

Wickedly Hot is a story about spontaneous combustion and instant attraction between Ryan and Jade. This is a story of soul mates finding each other and learning to trust their hearts rather than their heads. Ms. Kelly shows exactly why she has become known as one of the most sensuous authors writing for the Temptation line today.

Ms. Kelly uses secondary characters very sparingly in this story. Instead of cluttering the story with many sub plots she focuses entirely on the main couple and the results are amazing. She raises her readersí temperatures with her revenge scenes involving the couple, which are very well written. The banter between the main characters is both comical and emotional and a highlight of the story.

Wickedly Hot is quite simply wickedly hot and a prime example of the Temptation line at its finest. If you are looking for a hot story to fill your afternoon then pick up a copy of Wickedly Hot today. You wonít be disappointed.
