It's her job to snare him, but this trap might be more complicated than she thought.

When Tilly went into business as a private detective, she thought it would be all brilliant deductive reasoning and car chases. She was not prepared for the deluge of calls from suspicious lovers hiring her to entrap their love rat partners, but when times are hard, you take what's on offer - which is how, despite two left feet, she came to find herself learning the Argentine tango.

But is the tango teaching lothario all he seems to be? And when he makes his hot Latin moves on her, will she really be able to stay professional and resist them?

Tilly finds herself tangled up in the tango, hot on the tail of a mystery. She even manages to fit in a car chase, though the brilliant deductive reasoning doesn't work out so well. But where her brain might miss out, her body certainly doesn't. They don't call sex the horizontal tango for nothing, it seems.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a spanking scene and light voyuerism and exhibitionism in relation to sex in a car.(less)
Short, sweet and to the point. Honeytrapped by Justine Elyot, coming in at only thirty-eight pages, is a swift read yet still delivers great romance, smokin' hot sex, a good story and even a bit of action.

Without going in to much detail, mainly due to the fact that to do so would spoil this short story, I can tell you that this novel brings together an unlikely pair, a hunky dance instructor and a quirky private detective on her first real case, in an unexpectedly humorous read. The characters are likable and the relationship is easy to step in to, however, as can be expected there is a distinct lack of depth to both. I would have liked to see more development between these two, especially as there is some great chemistry there. But, aptly titled as a 'Lust Bite', this story definitely delivers with some hot sex twined with an interesting plot.

So, if you need a little something to get you through the day, this is definitely a great choice. Will definitely be checking out more by this author, able to create an interesting and super sexy tale so quickly. I can only imagine how wonderful her longer ones are!

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Scars

Advisory: Strong sexual content
