I haven't been very engaged in many of the erotic romance books I've read (or tried to read) lately, so I was pleasantly surprised when I started Summer in the City of Sails by Shelley Munro. I have to say that I just LOVED this book. Nikolai is incredibly hot (this is one "big bad SAS man" I'd love to meet) and I found I liked Summer a lot. There's an intrigue plot that runs throughout, but it works well and I liked that I felt Summer and Nikolai had time to develop their romance. The romance does develop quickly, but I liked it. I just loved the enthusiasm Summer had for sex and how she just sort of wormed her way into Nikolai's heart. If you're looking for a great contemporary erotic romance, I highly recommend this one. It's more sensual than explicit, but it's quite hot. There's also the humor that I expect to find in one of Munro's books.
Shelley Munro is one of my favorite Ellora's Cave authors and so far she's written some great books. If you want some laugh-out-loud funny sci-fi romance, you need to pick up Talking Dogs, Aliens, and Purple People Eaters and also Never Send a Dog to Do a Woman's Job. Okay, humor is subjective, but I found them incredibly funny.
If you're at EC's site and don't know what to get, I highly recommend this one. I really liked it. And no shooting me if you don't like it, either. *g*
