It’s an anything goes heated power play between Libby Nobel, a successful marking guru and her newest client the perilously wealthy Alexander Lancaster. They can’t deny they are a perfect fit in business but can they throw pleasure into the mix ?
A Week To Be Wild is a fast paced high powered wild romp as Libby and Alex’s week of wild hook ups and sexy games escalates into something that sounds a lot like love.
This book is a part of Harlequin’s new Dare line that push [es] the boundaries of sexual explicitness and features “grittier heroes and anti-heroes”. It seems like Harlequin is trying to catch up to indie romance’s edgy contemporary romance game.
Alex Lancaster is not your stereotypical Harlequin billionaire, he doesn’t command boardrooms in a suite and tie, he’s a tech geek who goes to work in jeans and gamer t-shirts. Libby is a an alpha female heroine and has as much physical desire for the hero as he has for her; in a way that’s overtly sex positive. I’ve only sampled a few Harlequin categories and one Blaze (which this line is essentially replacing) so I can’t speak to whether the explicitness was eyebrow raising, but there were a lot more F-bombs that I expected to be in a Harlequin.
I’m up for reading more from this line, I mean one book is going to have a Motorcycle Club hero. What I’m most shocked about ? The Dare line is open to first person POV. Whaaat ?!
A new category to check out… if you dare.
