Can't tell from the temp in this neck of the woods, but supposedly some places will experience a 20-degree temperature drop this week, bringing a fall-like briskness to the dog days for a bit.
Yeah. I'm not ready for that.
Remember the Polar Vortex of last winter. So....just no.
Let's keep it hot, shall we?
Like, say, BLIZZARD hot?
Romancing the Book had this to say:
Blizzard was a kinky, shocking, titillating tale of sexual satisfaction full of surprises. On her way home from a conference, Mandy Malone is caught in a blizzard. Forced to pull over at a rest stop, she finds herself captivated by the handsome man in one of the booth. What happens next will make your jaw drop. I know mine did. I can’t say much more without launching into spoilers, but I will say if you’re looking for something naughty, short, and thought provoking to read this is a perfect fit.
And it's still only 99 cents at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Take it to the beach with you. And feel the sizzle. Or, you know, keep that Polar Vortex at bay with some Blizzard heat.
Mandy Malone ditches her pharmaceutical convention and the married male colleagues hitting on her to hurry home to her waiting family. But she doesn’t bank on the blizzard that forces her off the road and into a deserted rest stop. When she meets another road refugee, their attraction is immediate and molten hot. Suddenly, getting stranded doesn’t seem like such bad luck after all.
Although totally unprepared for Mandy’s unvarnished proposition, Jack is intrigued by the erotic offer of a promising night of no-questions-asked sex. But when he notices the wedding band on Mandy’s finger, will he forego the lure of a torrid clandestine affair, or give in to the fantasy of blazing hot sex on a wintry night?
She rooted around in her handbag again, on the off chance she’d missed something useful to her current situation.
“Is this what you’re looking for, lady?”
Mandy glanced up, startled by the deep, rumbling baritone that echoed loudly in the fairly quiet building. And even more startled by the tall, gorgeous hunk of manhood bundled into a down parka standing next to her table.
I could totally jump him. Right here. Right now.
From nowhere, steamy erotic images of what she wanted to do with the man leaped unbidden into her head. She’d never felt such instant attraction to anyone, such a frantic desire. Maybe it was a reaction to her frightening experience on the Thruway. Or maybe something else created the overpowering chemistry.
Besides being the most handsome man she’d ever laid eyes on, he held out a battery-operated pocket charger. A sigh escaped her as he stared down at her.
“It’s not the only thing I’m looking for.” Her voice, husky and sultry, and laden with blatant sexual innuendo, shocked her. Where had those words come from? Nearly alone with him in the deserted rest stop…and still she felt…safe.
“Yeah?” The man removed his parka, revealing a plaid flannel shirt, the triangle of a white, cold-weather T-shirt peeping from the open neckline. When he raised his arms, thick bands of muscle rippled across his chest, beneath the layers of fabric. He riveted her with brilliant azure eyes, bluer than a lake under the summer’s sun. His hair, which curled a bit boyishly at his temples, resembled a wet beach, light, dirty brown, with shimmering bronze threads straggling through the locks. But this was no boy. No, indeed.
God. Gorgeous did not even begin to cover it. The longer he looked at her, the hotter she became. So hot she suddenly felt she’d do anything, dare anything with this man.

5 stars from Kelly at Reading the Paranormal:
"Good gravy, this book was hot. I don't know if it was the naughtiness of Mandy propositioning a sexy man out of the blue or the way everything played out in the end but this story worked for me.
I always say, if you going to ask someone for a night of no-holds-barred sex, you might as well ask the hunk of burning love that makes your lady parts tingle. The fact that he's the sexiest hunk in the room doesn't hurt, AT ALL.
Downright naughty at times and full of the trademark sexiness that I've come to expect from Taryn Kincaid's books, I wouldn't mind more more more just like this. Please."
4.5 from Reviewing Vixens! "Hot, steamy and to hell with the weather outside kind of business. The story may be short but it’s a great read. Another winner from Taryn Kincaid."

Taryn always writes great vivid stories that are well worth the read. The sex scenes were believable, and not nasty. I liked the plot of a blizzard, and a truck stop. I was not expecting the ending, and I loved it. What a fun twist. I am giving this story a 5/5 and hope that these characters show up in a longer story."

3 stars from TBR: "I was pleasantly surprised with this book. For such a short story, there is definitely no shortage of steam between these characters. I found it incredibly impressive that the author could create such well-developed characters and such an intriguing story, not to mention a surprise twist, in such a quick little novella...the book ends in a twist I certainly did not see coming. I adored the dialogue between the characters... For an erotic read, the story was just steamy enough to push some comfort limits, without going too far. Readers like myself that appreciate some heat between the sheets... or in this case, the seats... will definitely enjoy Blizzard. I certainly did."
