Jeanie London's About that night...


About that Night...
by Jeanie London
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
cover art copyright: Harlequin(?)
review copy provided by: Jeanie London

In her 2002 Harlequin Blaze title, About That Night, author Jeanie London tells the story of timid, ladylike Dr. Julienne Blake, who, after breaking up with her fiancĂ©, and a complete makeover, decides she wants to shed her inhibitions. To do so, she takes up self-hypnosis, and with its help, convinces herself to seduce a colleague in the field, Dr. Nick Fairfax—and big shot in the world of renovations (and a notorious bad boy) who is in town for the renovations of a 19th century theatre, the Risque.

Trouble is, after their entirely hot one night, Nick is so smitten with “Jules” that he’s all for turning that temporary meeting into something more. Luckily, Jules isn’t so against the idea of extending it into a fling, but something even more than that? Well, that’s where Jules’ timid side starts to rear its head. After all, that would mean having to bring their relationship to the attention of her elderly, overprotective uncle, and that’s the last thing she wants.

While I picked my copy of About That Night up from Jeanie London, herself, when she was here in Tampa last March, I found About That Night to be at times charming, funny, and yes, hot. Nick and Jules and intelligent, and that too comes across quite well in the story, even when they’re flirting with each other (and they do flirt—a lot). If you’d like to check it out, I’m fairly sure interested readers might be able to find a copy at such local bookstores or I see it can be purchased at Amazon. (Oh, and I’ve heard she’s got two new ones out this year, already. So be on the lookout for those too)

Do check out Jeanie London’s About That Night, if you can find it; I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.


My rating?
 
(and yeah, well, it didn't hurt that the main character's name is similar to my own. :))

This review is also up at the Examiner, so if you would please, give that a hit here?
