August Heat (The Twelve Quickies of Christmas anthology) by Lora Leigh

ISBN: 1-84360-727-1

It's Christmas time for the August family and it's been a little over a year since a stalker had been attempting to destroy the family.

Cade, Brock and Sam along with their wives are still living and sharing under the same roof at the August ranch. Marly, Sarah, and Heather have been plotting and the brothers are having trouble figuring what is going on with their beautiful wives. So the men decide to let them know exactly how proper August wives should accomodate their men.
This series is fabulous, somewhat unconventional but worth it. Starting the series in the middle is not recommended. I think without knowing the story from the very beginning would really confuse the reader and even disgruntle someone who doesn't understand the story line. Marly is smart mouthed and Cade is just the man to handle her. Sarah is naive but before long Brock sees her for the wildcat she's been hiding. Heather is the perfect woman to heal Sam. And let me tell you, I had no clue as to who the stalker was until the very end. What a mystery! Lora Leigh, you have done a fantastic job with the August family and really kept me glued to the stories. Highly recommended reads!
