Luke Gallagher’s mother left him when he was twelve years old, taking his younger sister with her. Devastated, he had started acting up, but had been taken in by June’s grandmother. Although he and June had grown up under the same roof, he had more than sisterly feelings for her. But after being deserted by his mother, he was afraid to commit. He had gone into the service after high school, but ended up back in his hometown. It had taken a while to get over June. He could not believe that she was back in town now. But he knew it was only a matter of time before she left him again. Luke had had a problem in his past, but a man had given him a second chance. So he started the charity Helping Hands. The last thing he expects is to find that June is serving her community service by working for his nonprofit organization, Helping Hands.
As they work side-by-side, June begins to question the future she has planned for herself. Realizing that she has never stopped loving Luke, June hopes to break down the walls he has built around his heart and to teach him to love. Will she succeed, or is she only bound for more heartbreak? Will she return to Austin and her martini bar, or will she make a life with Luke in her hometown?
An absolutely delectable tale, SULTRY WITH A TWIST, the latest book by gifted author Macy Beckett, is a witty, sexy contemporary romance that will captivate you from the very beginning. At times hilarious and other times heart wrenching; this story will be one you will not soon forget. Accident prone June finds herself in hot water time and again, as others ends up injured, suffering because of her, putting Luke’s time schedule further behind while seriously hampering his plans for the future. But when June’s life is on the line, will he finally see what is right in front of his eyes? A delightful story with plenty of plot twists, humor, disaster, danger, small town life, interesting characters, witty banter, sizzling hot romance and true love, SULTRY WITH A TWIST is one you will not want to miss. I highly recommend it and look forward to reading the next book in this delightful series, A SHOT OF SULTRY, due out in March 2013.
