Desert Heat
By Kristie Leigh Maguire 

Desert Heat Is Not
Your Every Day Romance

     This is one that no matter how tender that T-bone was, you'd be more interested in the sizzle! The author of a novel called Desert Heat, Kristie Leigh Maguire, tells a story about a steel magnolia who has come out West to live and gives both the men and women in her life a run for their money.

     Here is a protagonist who lives for and dreams about sexy encounters yet we still feel she is a three-dimensional character. She has a husband she loves, a new job, and to her chagrin, a new love-interest. How does a happily married, career-minded woman handle a situation like this?

     A reader of this new first novel has a choice: she can either follow the story to find the answer or she can simply turn the pages to the love scenes and inhale them or lap them up. If it's cold outside then this book is a perfect substitute for a nice, warm hearth.
