The Hottest Ticket In Town - Kimberly Van Meter

The Hottest Ticket In Town
Kimberly Van Meter
Harlequin Blaze, Apr 21 2015, $5.50
ISBN: 9780373798490

Exhausted from her brutal yet unfinished tour with Atlanta coming up next week and from her demanding manager Trent Blackstone, burned out country music star Laci McCall flees after her latest sold-out gig in Memphis for her childhood haven, the Bradford Ranch in Woodsville, Kentucky.  At the same time Elite Protection Service co-owner Kane Dalton tells his brother and partner Rian to handle the Senator’s gig as he heads to the Bradford Ranch.  He further explains that Warren, who is a like a grandfather to the Dalton gang, asked him to watch the spread while the elderly man takes his wife Cora for medical treatment out of state.

Laci finds her first love Kane sleeping in her bed.  Stunned to see the female he never forgot, Kane knows leaving her again will destroy him; as he barely survived walking away from her when they were teens.  As they both recognize that they remain in love with one another, neither wants to consider the future.

The latest Wrong Bed romance (see Good With His hands by Tanya Michaels) is a heated second chance contemporary.  Trent is over the top of Black Mountain as he destroys the Golden Goose with an outrageous schedule; and Kane’s response to change the upcoming dates too simplistic and glib (though health-wise necessary) as more than just the avarice Svengali manager is impacted.  Still fans will want to obtain The Hottest Ticket In Town.
