Architect Nicole ‘Nicky’ LesDaux has been commissioned to build a treehouse for the daughter of record producer Johnny Patrick. Nicky is accustomed to working with the rich in L.A. She knows how to schmooze with the best of them, but Johnny is not her usual client. He is the epitome of masculine perfection. He practically oozes sex. It was going to take all of her control to keep her mind on business. Luckily, Jordi, the daughter, has taken a shine to her and provides the distraction needed for Nicky to get anything done around Hot Daddy.


Work takes a back seat, however, when Johnny’s ex-wife takes their daughter out of the country. He is afraid for Jordi’s safety around his addicted ex and her drugged-out friends. When she is in L.A. at least there are responsible people around to help take care of Jordi when it is her mother's turn for visitation. In France, who knows what can happen? Johnny finds out that Nicky can speak rudimentary French and he whisks her off on his private plane to rescue his daughter. So much for keeping a distance between them.


To most people a trip to France is a dream come true, but for Nicky it is a nightmare. What did Johnny get her into? The simple task of overseeing the construction of a posh treehouse has become a covert rescue operation involving guns and drugs. This was not in the contract. No where did Nicky recall agreeing to brush elbows with an organized crime ring.


When Jordi is safely in the protective arms of her father, Johnny relaxes and turns his attention toward Nicky. She’s a goner. Who in their right mind can resist ‘mixing business with pleasure’ when it involves Daddy Delicious? On the condition it all comes to an end when they hit American soil, Nicky and Johnny play to their heart’s content. Once they return, she will finish the treehouse and he will continue producing records. Life will go on as usual. As an architect, Nicky should realize that rarely do endeavors go as easily as planned...especially if the heart is involved.


Frenck Kiss by Susan Johnson is a hot story filled with action both in and out of the bedroom. Nicky’s predicament causes a vulnerability in her which the reader can relate to, thus making the reader care about what happens to her. Johnny is a dreamy hero with integrity and heart, not to mention enough sex appeal to singe your fingers as you turn the pages. For an engaging, erotic read pick up Frenck Kiss today.
