My first Sandra Brown book and I've got to say I was thoroughly entertained. The ending was a little farfetched, in my opinion, but overall I enjoyed it.

Typical engrossing Sandra Brown fare. Determined, strong willed heroine. Fierce, possibly evil, hero. Tension (and torid sex) between the two. Happy ending.

A great "beach book" -- better written than many. I seem to be hooked! I have to admit to being fooled about the ending this time. Clever.

Sandra Brown's books keep getting better and this story was no exception. I did read this about a year ago and can't totally remember the whole story, but I do remember that I couldn't put it down. I keep the great ones to reread and this is one I still have.

Sayre Lynch breaks her vow of ten years never to return home again when her younger brother dies. Her tyranntical father owns the only industry in the small LA town and provides most of the jobs. Corruption, fear, lust, revenge, murder, intrigue, romance--you'll find it all in this novel.

Four stars.

You'll notice specially while listening on AUDIO....

After a hard consuming rat race of a day and your Inner self screams a Sweet Rapturous release YOU can find it in Relaxing with this READ.
WHITE HOT is your Remedy to get Carried away Audio Utopia Style..teeheee!

This reader experience..a soothing Cure or so to speak a bliss of pure listening pleasure that jumps starts ones entire Being with rthymic vibrations ,also it can best be describe as.."OOOH Snap, what a wild Rush...WOWWEE..!!!"

As the Story line un folds into separate entities or piece by piece of life forces ups and downs struggles,plus survival of the fitness,who ,why what and How the HECK..?!!!
it delicately weaved into a it Story.
It's story is...ATTENTIONNNN...SIT UP TAKE NOTICE.. demanding while it peaks little by little then show signs of revolving,and at the same time blends into sharing portions of it's secrets.
The story teller makes it seem with little of ease(what a season Writer!) to connect,cross,and joined everything together...all as ONE all proper like.
Yet and still the climaxes kept being reborn with Bursts of explosion, dissolving in to colorful arrays of real life fast pace suspense ,romance & drama.
I didn't want it to end..but the ending was on POINT..holllaaa!
WHITE HOT subconsciously made me have thoughts &desires of reading RICOCHET also..yuppp by Sandra Brown...hmmmhh..what a nice touch!

Prolonging the story for me would've continue to be a pleasurable intriguing delicious treat!
this Reader's deepest thought was..," noooooo...don't end...PLEAZZZE more....Mr. Victor Slezak.......aaha a don't Stop!"
Then again,That's ONLY the Magic, the talents of SANDRA BROWN...affects on you.
This is one Reader whose glad to have thrown caution to the wind....
As I Listen I heard and took in the Story with an...OPEN MIND. Heyyy that's sooo American to demonstrate...my Freedom Choice!!

The Hero/Heroine blend&jellied very well together!
The Hero-BECK was smart,sexier than he had a right,also Tough too!
You know,this Reader was not at all taken back by the character,disposition of the Heroine.

It was different cause usually it's the HERO who act ornery,because of sigma's society places on us...we don't say much about it..men acting out how they feel..it's the NORM. but when WOMAN...acts ornery she gets persecuted.

It's a wonder SAYRE...what a lovely name didn't have a breakdown...what a tough Cookie;O)
All the lemons that what smacked up side SAYRE head,and knives diggers thrown into her heart her feelings,however her actions&feelings were justifiable,also how her own blood/relatives mistreated her It sunk!
I felt Sayre's pain.

What a passionate Spitfire Sayre was and I give kudos to her for taking a stand for the TRUTH cause some folk wouldn't nor couldn't separate themselves from family the way she did!
Sayre was such a TRUE... SHE-ROE ,
like most STRONG BRAVE COURAGEOUS woman she endure hardship liken to a good solider.
I Champion for the love Sayre & Beck shared...even in the mist of sooo much pain,suffering&death...Love prevail in the end...!

#1 bestselling author Sandra Brown ignites crackling suspense and fiery emotion in an unforgettable novel of passion and vengeance.
When her younger brother, Danny, commits suicide, Sayre Lynch breaks her vow never to return to her Louisiana hometown, and gets drawn back into her tyrannical father's web. He and her older brother -- who control the town's sole industry, an iron foundry -- are as corrupt as ever. Worse, they have hired a shrewd and disarming new lawyer, Beck Merchant...a man with his own agenda. When the police determine that Danny's suicide was actually a homicide, Sayre must battle her family -- and her passionate feelings for Beck -- as she confronts a powder keg of old hatreds, past crimes, and a surprising plan of revenge.

From Publishers Weekly
White-hot labor disputes, family conflict, murder and romance are ablaze in bestselling Brown's latest romantic thriller (after Hello, Darkness), when Sayre Lynch returns to Destiny, La., for her brother Danny's funeral. Estranged from her family for 10 years, Sayre arrives in town believing Danny committed suicide, but suspects otherwise after a surprise encounter at the cemetery and a disquieting interview with the sheriff's deputy. The Bayou-born firebrand now San Francisco interior decorator stays to investigate her brother's last days, confronting her father, Huff Hoyle, the powerful owner of the foundry that provides most of the town's jobs and all its corruption; defying her brother Chris, Huff's heir apparent and OSHA's worst nightmare; and becoming the first woman on the floor of the hellish factory that fuels the family fortune. At every turn, Sayre crosses paths with Huff's handsome lawyer henchman, Beck Merchant, irresistible although he represents everything she despises. The steamy pair cannot escape each other or their conclusions about Hoyle Enterprises. Brown makes up in pace and intensity what she lacks in prose style, guaranteeing readers a brain vacation in print, much like watching a favorite movie: an exciting yet familiar experience, the satisfactory resolution never in doubt.

Sandra Brown's cross from the romance genre into mystery has been an excellent move in my opinion. Of the many authors who have made this switch, she is one of the best!

In WHITE HOT, Sayre Lynch returns to Destiny, LA for her brother Danny's funeral. Even though she's not had contact with her family for over ten years, she is tossed into the middle of a minefield, some of which is her own doing. Huff, her father, is still the same egotistical, domineering person he always has been. He continues to run his foundry with an iron fist, and dares union reps and government officials to try to make him change the way he does business. Chris, Sayre's brother, is his father's yes-man. The sad part is that he's been spoiled by Huff and in growing up in this environment has been corrupted into Huff's way of thinking. Beck Merchant, Chris' college buddy, and now legal counsel to Hoyle Enterprises, is just like a member of the family and his level of corruption is often at the center of debate between he and Sayre.

As Sayre says a final farewell to Danny at the grave, she meets his fiancée and begins to doubt that her brother committed suicide. This begins the journey into corruption, self indulgence, and a good old fashion "who dun it" that at times leaves the reader just as breathless as those in Destiny trying to endure a heat wave. Between the accidents at the foundry, the union strike, the attacks by a local reprobate (Slap Watkins), flying sparks between Beck and Sayre, and other incidences the reader isn't given a chance to relax!

Character development is excellent, as usual for Brown. Sayre lives up to her redhead temperament, and her bouts with Beck will make the reader chuckle, and also feel the electricity between the two. A bit predictable, we are not surprised when Sayre and Beck give in to temptation and begin an affair.

Being fooled very seldom as to the villain's identity, Brown did have me wondering if I was correct in my choice. She confused the issue right up until the last 20 pages, and the twist left me smiling and being thoroughly entertained! But a few of the loose ends that she tied up were not a surprise even if they were extremely minor!

Overall, WHITE HOT was fast paced, action packed, and full of life. The story had life, as well as the characters. This book emphasizes why Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors!

At every turn, Sayre crosses paths with Huff's handsome lawyer henchman, Beck Merchant, irresistible although he represents everything she despises. The steamy pair cannot escape each other or their conclusions about Hoyle Enterprises.

I enjoyed the book very much. It's about a women who returns back to her Louisiana home town due to her brothers "suicide" and ends up investigating working conditions at her fathers foundry as well as her brothers death. With a subplot of romance, but it doesn't overwhelm the story.

Story is long and involved and a bit slow to get to the point, but this book is a good read. The romance is there, but not the highlight of the book.

Lots of plot twists and turns and one that you might not have guessed. This isn't one of her best books. It's begiining to seem like the more expensive her books get the less believable the stories. These characters were a little difficult to care about. I also hate this size book. The print is bigger and the pages thicker neither of which is necessary but drives up the production costs I'm sure. That certainly isn't the author's fault though.

I did not figure this one out until the very last chapter when the
killer was revealed.......and there is a surprise i never even thought
about until it was revealed as well....a very good one from Sandra
Brown.

From the back cover:
When her younger brother, Danny, commits suicide, Sayre Lynch breaks her vow never to return to her Louisiana hometown, and gets drawn back into her tyrannical father's web. He and her older brother--who control the town's sole industry, an iron foundry--are as corrupt as ever. Worse, they have hired a shrewd and disarming new lawyer, Beck Merchant...a man with his own agenda. When the police determine that Danny's suicide was actually a homicide, Sayre must battle her family--and her passionate feelings for Beck--as she confronts a powder keg of old hatreds, past crimes, and a surprising plan of revenge.

Even though she swore she would never return to Destiny, Sayre Lynch goes home to attend her brother's funeral. But she soon learns that his suicide may actually have been murder. She also finds that her father still runs the town's foundry with an iron fist. Sayre is horrified by the conditions at the foundry and it's history of accidents and fatalities. She wants to help bring change to the business, but her family's attorney, Beck Merchant, is standing in her way.

It took me almost a week to get through this book. It was billed as romantic suspense, but I found it neither romantic nor suspenseful. The saving grace of the book was the plot twist near the end. My rating: 3 Stars.

You know, I don't normally review books, but felt that maybe I should start. Ms. Brown is an excellent writer, but I have long ago gotten sick and tired of explicit sexual scenes. I especially feel these do not contribute to the stories at all and the ones that go on for several pages only indicate the depravity of the writer. I have started deleting these offensive authors from my reading lists (which are extensive) and I do not recommend their books to anyone. In fact I usually destroy the books so no one else reads them. Don't know why I didn't destroy this one, buy oh well....

"OOOOH YESSS...WHITE HOT is Entertainment at it's BEST.....!
WHITE HOT wondrously written by none other than the legionary talents of a True trail blazer& Gifted prodigy ...SANDRA BROWN!
(((much)) props to the beautiful the eloquent....SANDRA BROWN...!

You'll notice specially while listening on AUDIO....
WHITE HOT flames sparkles ...Tenaciously & Teasingly and yummmm what a nice savory Intense Kick it has!
..Yes indeed...Most definitely some will find that the AUDIO is the way to go if you wanna be Carried away...
After a hard consuming rat race of a day and your Inner self screams a Sweet Rapturous release YOU can find it in Relaxing with this READ.
WHITE HOT is your Remedy to get Carried away Audio Utopia Style..teeheee!

This reader experience..a soothing Cure or so to speak a bliss of pure listening pleasure that jumps starts ones entire Being with rthymic vibrations ,also it can best be describe as.."OOOH Snap, what a wild Rush...WOWWEE..!!!"

As the Story line un folds into separate entities or piece by piece of life forces ups and downs struggles,plus survival of the fitness,who ,why what and How the HECK..?!!!
it delicately weaved into a it Story.
It's story is...ATTENTIONNNN...SIT UP TAKE NOTICE.. demanding while it peaks little by little then show signs of revolving,and at the same time blends into sharing portions of it's secrets.
The story teller makes it seem with little of ease(what a season Writer!) to connect,cross,and joined everything together...all as ONE all proper like.
Yet and still the climaxes kept being reborn with Bursts of explosion, dissolving in to colorful arrays of real life fast pace suspense ,romance & drama.
I didn't want it to end..but the ending was on POINT..holllaaa!
WHITE HOT subconsciously made me have thoughts &desires of reading RICOCHET also..yuppp by Sandra Brown...hmmmhh..what a nice touch!

Prolonging the story for me would've continue to be a pleasurable intriguing delicious treat!
this Reader's deepest thought was..," noooooo...don't end...PLEAZZZE more....Mr. Victor Slezak.......aaha a don't Stop!"
Then again,That's ONLY the Magic, the talents of SANDRA BROWN...affects on you.
This is one Reader whose glad to have thrown caution to the wind....
As I Listen I heard and took in the Story with an...OPEN MIND. Heyyy that's sooo American to demonstrate...my Freedom Choice!!

The Hero/Heroine blend&jellied very well together!
The Hero-BECK was smart,sexier than he had a right,also Tough too!
You know,this Reader was not at all taken back by the character,disposition of the Heroine.

It was different cause usually it's the HERO who act ornery,because of sigma's society places on us...we don't say much about it..men acting out how they feel..it's the NORM. but when WOMAN...acts ornery she gets persecuted.

It's a wonder SAYRE...what a lovely name didn't have a breakdown...what a tough Cookie;O)
All the lemons that what smacked up side SAYRE head,and knives diggers thrown into her heart her feelings,however her actions&feelings were justifiable,also how her own blood/relatives mistreated her It sunk!
I felt Sayre's pain.

What a passionate Spitfire Sayre was and I give kudos to her for taking a stand for the TRUTH cause some folk wouldn't nor couldn't separate themselves from family the way she did!
Sayre was such a TRUE... SHE-ROE ,
like most STRONG BRAVE COURAGEOUS woman she endure hardship liken to a good solider.
I Champion for the love Sayre & Beck shared...even in the mist of sooo much pain,suffering&death...Love prevail in the end...!
THANKS once again Ms. Brown for entertainment at it's very,very BEST!
Best wishess!"
