There’s something about those Aussies – are they all as steaming hot as Russell Crowe in "The Gladiator," as Mel Gibson in "Mad Max," as Hugh Jackman in, well, anything? After meeting so many lovely Australian authors at RWA National a few weeks ago, I was drawn to Kate Hoffmann’s mouthwatering trio of novels about the quixotic Quinns. Well, okay, they’re not quixotic – they’re just really hot -- but there aren’t any synonyms for sexy that start with “qui!”
Anyway, usually I can’t get Hugh Jackman completely out of my mind – I mean, seriously, who can? – but now I’ve added the The Mighty Quinns to my lineup of sizzling Aussies. Things are heating up in Queensland, Australia . . .
The very first time Teague Quinn met Hayley Fraser, he knew he was going to marry her. He hadn’t counted on her running off while he was away at college, leaving him without a word of explanation. When she comes back home, he has only one objective – to persuade her to stay. The heat they always generated sizzles from his first sight of her, and Teague isn’t too proud to use that mutual attraction to win Hayley over.
Hayley couldn’t avoid Teague if she wanted to – she needs his expertise as an equine vet when her horse becomes ill due to her grandfather’s neglect of the family farm. She dubs him “Dr. Feelgood” – okay, Dr. Feelamazinglygood – but she’s happy to be friends with benefits. Teague isn’t complaining about the benefits, but he makes it clear he wants more. He wants forever, and he wants it to happen on Walleroo Station – the very last place Hayley wants to stay.
Teague’s story, part of Kate Hoffmann’s The Mighty Quinns trilogy from Harlequin Blaze, is a second-chance-at-love story that’s hot enough to fry eggs! Read one of the Quinn stories and you’ll want to read them all – these dudes from down-under make Crocodile Dundee seem tame. Brody’s story came out in June, Teague’s in July and Callum’s story will be published this month. Buy one or buy them all, but get yourself a fan and. . .
