Review: Tropical Heat by J. Rose Allister

Tropical Heat (Immortal Paradise, #2) by J. Rose Allister

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand Publishing
Genre: Fantasy Romance

Heat Rating: 2



When Steve Detroit goes to a swanky Bahamas resort in search of a cheating spouse, he uncovers a lot more than he bargained for. Sexy hostess Jessamine Valentine stirs a fiery passion in him that threatens to distract him from his mission and swallow his heart whole.

Jessamine could care less about the paranormally-enhanced eroticism all around the island hotel where she works. Then a guest with smoldering emerald eyes awakens a need she has tried hard to forget.

Steve soon discovers Jessamine holds the key to finding his quarry, and unlocks the most intimate secrets of the island beauty, as well as the resort itself--top-floor mysteries kept hidden from mortals. But when one of those secrets threatens to separate them permanently, how will Steve find a way to keep their love alive?

Yadkny's Review

In this tropical paradise not all is how it would seem.

Steve did not come to paradise for vacation, but for a job he would prefer he didn't have to do if but to put some of his sister's worries to rest. Regardless of his intentions, Steve soon finds himself part of a different type of investigation, but he could no more resist the siren call upon seeing Jessamine then she could him.

Jessamine has always taken her job at the Amante Del Mar seriously. It's not as though she would have many options had it not been for the resort owner's generosity. Still she would never have thought that with all of the supernatural things going on around her, that a seemingly normal man could be her downfall.

In this second installment to the Immortal Paradise series, we learn a few more things about this mysteriously erotic resort. Just what is it that each floor of the resort represents and what kind “business” goes on between immortals and humans? It isn't clear what everything is leading to as the storyline continues, but I find myself nonetheless drawn towards this unique series as more immortal creatures are revealed. The demigods Love and Lust are not as heavily involved in this story, but the strong emotional elements they represent are no doubt felt throughout. The story is fast paced and heated in all of the right spots. Ms. Allister delivers another slightly twisted happily-ever-after that will definitely leave you looking forward to the next in the series.
