Emma Howard has an on again, off again relationship with her neighbor Tucker Martin. She went out on three dates with him and had a wonderful time, but after a passionate encounter on the third date, she gave him the brush off. She's tried to avoid him as much as possible since then, but living in the same apartment building makes that hard to do.

Tucker isn't sure if he'll ever get the chance again to show Emma how he feels about her. He wants her in his life permanently, but she seems bound and determined to keep him out of her life. Fate helps him along during a scorching hot summer day when Emma and Tucker get trapped in the apartment elevator together. The heat outside is nothing compared to the heat these two generate as they give into their feelings once again. But still, Emma is afraid. How can she trust Tucker, a man who is as charming and charismatic as her father, a man who let her down time and time again? Will Emma ever be able to put the past behind her, before she hurts Tucker irrevocably, and loses out on building a special relationship with him?


HEAT WAVE is another emotional and sensual story from N.J. Walters. If you're looking for a story with heart, as well as some serious heat, look no farther. HEAT WAVE combines the best of both of those ingredients to provide readers with a tale of love and romance in a small town. Tucker is the guy next door type, who is always willing to lend a hand or provide assistance. His resolve to win Emma is truly touching, as well as being very passionate. Emma is a heroine who lacks self-confidence in herself, as well as Tucker, at the beginning of the story. Her epiphany regarding her past and present is a key turning point in her character growth and turned her from just a somewhat average heroine into an admirable, self-assured, and indomitable woman. I really enjoyed reading about Tucker and Emma's journey to love, and I guarantee you will too. N.J. Walters is a tried and true author for me, but she always manages to surprise and please me with her stories and HEAT WAVE is no different.
