Phillips (Under the Boardwalk, etc.) kicks off Harlequin's new single-title romance line, HQN, with a sizzling but somewhat insubstantial tale, the first in her new trilogy involving three orphaned sisters left in the care of their tough-talking uncle Yank Morgan. A ladies' man with a penchant for gambling, Uncle Yank hasn't a clue what to do with three little girls, so he trains them to become major players at his Manhattan sports agency. Annabelle, the eldest, has become a powerhouse in the PR department, but her attraction to egocentric bad boys has proven to be a problem. After her latest boyfriend dumps her for an actress, Annabelle takes a personal vow of celibacy that lasts about as long as an ice cube in August when she meets her newest client, ex-football star Brandon Vaughn. Annabelle initially writes Brandon off as another handsome jock, but she soon discovers that he's different than the rest. He's building a lodge for kids with learning disabilities and, since someone seems intent on sabotaging his efforts, he needs positive publicity fast. The bland mystery doesn't add much zest to Phillips's predictable plot line, but this breezy book will likely score a touchdown with readers looking for sexy thrills and instant gratification.

Annie takes on Brandon's PR nightmare when someone close to him is sabotaging his upscale lodge/summer camp for needy kids. First in a trilogy about sisters at Hot Zone, a PR agency for past and present athletes. I liked Phillips' playfulness with the characters, and her use of secondary characters to move the plot along. They each clearly have a story, but it doesn't detract from Annie and Brandon's growing friendship and romantic relationship. What I also appreciated was how ADULT the characters behaved. There was no wishy-washy "why do I like him? maybe he won't like me back?" etc. - these characters were confident and acknowledged their mutual attraction, and from there their intimacy only blossoms. Instead of their attraction pushing the plot along, there was the lodge mystery to push their characters forward, and that was much appreciated. My favorite book in the series.

This was a lot of fun to read. Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips will love this series - similar to the Chicago Stars series. Fast read with just enough sex!

Love this book! It is actually part of a series, but you don't have to read the others to understand the storyline. There are two other books that use the same characters in them. Fun, easy summer read.

Excellent read.

Annabelle Jordan and her two sisters were oprhans in frilly dresses when they went to live with their sports-lawyer uncle in his world oflocker rooms, bookies and gambling. Now the girls are publicists in their uncle's firm, The Hot Zone. Despite her upbringing Annabelle is all woman. She's naurally drawn to real men - like her latest client, ex-football leend and businessman Brandon Vaughn. The chemistry is potent, undeniable, irresistible, but Annabelle soon realizes taht Brandon is much more than just another jock. And that she'd better hold on tight if she doesn't want to lose her heart.

Part of the Hot Zone trilogy. This book features Annabelle a publicist with a knack for rescuing various critters and Brandon an ex-jock who is trying to open a lodge. Someone is sabotauging (sp) the lodge's construction and Annabelle is trying to figure out what is going on while sparks are flying between her and Brandon. Pretty fast read although the criminal is kind of easy to figure out (he's a slime anyway so you root for it to be him).
