Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair's heartracing romance continues in this hot, new novella in the Chasing Fire series.
Return to the dangerous and seductive romance that got pulses racing in the Chasing Fire trilogy...
It took ten years for Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair to find their happily ever after, and theyÔÇÖre not about to let anything get in their way...
Nothing could stop the passion between Allie and HudsonÔÇönot time or distance. Not even tragedy, betrayal, and blackmail. But now theyÔÇÖre facing a new challenge: wedding planning. And while AllieÔÇÖs social status demands she put on the event of the century, her well-intentioned family and friends have her doubting her walk down the aisle...
Hudson knows tensions are pushing Allie to the brink, but heÔÇÖs not letting her throw everything away over some flowers and cake. He has plans for his new bride, and unlike their last adventure, he's determined that this time there will be no unwelcome surprises. But for all his determination and control, thereÔÇÖs one element Hudson Chase has never been able to predictÔÇöand she has some adventurous ideas of her own...
I can hardly believe it’s been almost a year since the final novel in the Chasing Fire series was released. The release of Embrace Me came as a complete surprise to me, a very welcome one at that. Hudson And Allie are one of my favorite literary romance couples and any additional time with them is a bonus. If Reclaim Me was about resolution, Embrace Me is all about recovery and renewal and Hudson & Allie’s second chance and second wedding celebrations.
This novella is low on drama and high on sensuality. This story line after all is focused on Allie and Hudson sharing their vows with their family and friends, and escaping their hectic lives for a honeymoon. So much of the story is about them preparing for the event and their internal musings about finding their happy and how they inspire each other. We get to see a bit more with Nick and Harper ( I adore these two *Nick* and would love more of their *Nick* story.) I think I just love how far Nick has come and how he and Hudson have bonded.
Ann and Amy also share with us some extra special (heartfelt & sexy) moments between Hudson and Allie while they are on their honeymoon. The man knows how to create a sanctuary for Allie, kicking off their lives in wedded bliss in a spectacular way. I felt very content and satisfied as I read the final lines. Ann and Amy created a wonderful world in the Chasing Fire series and Embrace Me is a delightful addition and worthy of 5 Stars! Don’t miss this book if you’ve already read the series – One final plug ~ This is a second chance romance /suspense series that I can’t recommend enough! ~
~Review by Cyndi
Hudson spun to face her and within seconds Allie was in his arms, the hard planes of his body crushing her against the alleyÔÇÖs brick wall. Both hands framed her face as Hudson sealed his mouth over hers. His tongue pushed passed her lips, taking her in a lush, deep kiss she felt echo to her very core. AllieÔÇÖs hands found their way into his hair, her fingers twisting through the dark waves, trying in vain to hold him to her when he broke their kiss.
His face hovered mere inches from hers. ÔÇ£YouÔÇÖve been a bad girl tonight,ÔÇØ he rasped.
Just those few, roughly spoken words had her heart racing with excitement. Hudson was in control and she wouldn’t have it any other way. In the boardroom she stood her ground, going toe to toe with her stubborn husband on a wide range of issues. But in the bedroom he was her dominant lover and although there was a time she would have never considered such behavior a turn on, there was no denying the effect it had on her. There was a freedom in surrendering herself to him, a liberating sense of self unlike anything sheÔÇÖd ever experienced. With Hudson she was able to let go of her inhibitions and explore the wanton lust only he could evoke.
She hadnÔÇÖt expected him to show up at her bachelorette party and had certainly never imagined him dragging her out of the club cave-man style. But there he was, touching her, kissing her, and all she could think about was how badly she wanted him.
ÔÇ£Did you enjoy having those men rubbing themselves all over you?ÔÇØ The hard ridge of his erection pressed against her though the soft fabric of her skirt. Behind them a muffled bass beat a hypnotic rhythm through the clubÔÇÖs darkened windows. It pounded through them, urging her to grind her body against him.
ÔÇ£ItÔÇÖs only you Hudson. ItÔÇÖs always been only you.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£You can prove it to me when we get home.ÔÇØ He stepped back, leaving her warm and wanting, to reveal their limo idling behind him. He reached for the handle and gave the door a hard yank. ÔÇ£After you.ÔÇØ
Allie slid across the leather bench with Hudson close behind. Before he had even settled onto the seat she was in his lap. ÔÇ£We don’t have to wait until we get home.ÔÇØ
