I know when I pick up a Jill Shalvis story I will be thoroughly entertained with a fun storyline, hot chemistry, and witty dialogue. Hot Winter Nights was no different.  I have been reading the Heartbreaker Bay series a bit out of order, but they are still so much fun. In Hot Winter Nights, Molly and Lucas are center stage for the readers and their romance and personal challenges are quite engaging. 

Molly works at Hunt Investigations behind a computer. She is excellent at her job but wants to be out in the field. Problem is, her boss and her brother don’t think she is ready and would like to keep her safe. Lucas is recovering from being shot weeks ago and is going stir crazy at not being able to get back into the action. What a perfect time for him to tag along with Molly on an unsanctioned (by her boss) case of the “Bad Santa.” 

I love romantic suspense stories so I was glad Shalvis added a touch of it to Hot Winter Nights. While it is still very much a contemporary romance, the bit of suspense makes the story so much more interesting to me. She does a wonderful job weaving he romance, personal struggles, and investigation plots together. 

Most that read Shalvis’ books want the hot romance and they will get it in Hot Winter Nights. Lucas and Molly have undeniable chemistry, a relatively easy going relationship and just work so well. They feed off one another and it makes you wonder how they survived this long without one another. 

If you are looking for a contemporary romance story with a bit of suspense, give Hot Winter Nights a read. You will be hooked and ready for more books in the series!
