Seven Dirty Words

by Charlotte Howard

BLURB:

Paige Holmes hides herself in a masculine world in a desperate attempt to remain safe.

Just as she is ready to face her fears and her past, she finds herself torn between Matt Jackson and Vance Ellery: handsome, rich, and safe – or handsome, rich, and dangerous?

Which will she choose?

The one who appears to be the most perfect, or the one who makes her use all Seven Dirty Words?

excerpt

 

“I’ve never seen a girl eat like you.” He laughed.

 

“I’m starving,” I said, in between mouthfuls of prawns and peas, trying to ignore the dimming room. A crash overhead started the storm’s symphony. Fat raindrops splattered against the window as the room lit with a sudden flash. Seconds later, another rumble filled the air. I shuddered.

 

“Are you okay?”

 

“I don’t like thunder storms,” I admitted, finishing the last of my noodles. The truth was I was afraid of any loud noise.

 

“Don’t worry, I won’t force you out in this.”

 

“I forgot to bring a coat,” I grumbled, rubbing my arms as though it had suddenly got cold.

 

Matt stood and peered out the window. “It’ll be a while before this is over.” He picked up the plates and took them into the kitchen. I followed him, not wanting to be alone.

 

As I walked in, I suddenly remembered the large windows, and saw the dreary sky blanketing the village. My eyes widened in fear as another flash filled the sky.

 

Matt smiled at me.

 

“What’s so funny?”

 

“You are.” He laughed, nearing me. “I didn’t think you were afraid of anything.”

 

“Appearances can be deceptive.”

 

“They most certainly can!” He took my hand and led me back into the living room. “Well, it looks like we’ll be here a bit longer than intended.” We sat back down on the sofa.

 

“And no TV to kill the time,” I said, staring at the empty fireplace. “Look, if you want to get rid of me, I can make a mad dash to the car door. It’s only rain.”

 

“I don’t want to get rid of you, Paige.” As he said my name, the hairs on my neck and arms stood on end. “But I’m not willing to share you either.”

4 1/2 Fangs
This is my first read by Charlotte V. Howard and it will not be my last! Seven Dirty Words is sweet and hot and will pull you in quickly. The story revolves around Paige – she is from a wealthy family, who cusses like a sailor on liberty, but is just coming back to life after being raped. She has thrown her life into kickboxing, working out, playing rugby. She has finally be able to find some bit of peace and moved into a house with her brother and his friend. While playing rugby one day she literally falls at the feet of Vance.

Vance Ellery – whom she labels TDS, jump starts her what she thought was dead libido. Vance is an older man who knows what he wants and is used to getting it. Paige puts up a fight – Vance doesn’t like being told no and their adventure begins.

Around the same time she meets another man, a man more appropriate to her age and she like him as well. Matt is a restaurateur, has money and he starts to pursue Paige as well. Didn’t see the twist coming on Matt! Paige falls for both men, when the time comes for choices it will not be easy. Who will Paige confide all her secret past to – Vance or Matt? 

A time or 3 I wanted to shake Paige and get her to make a decision sooner. Ms. Howard’s writing is fluid and her characters are well defined and will keep on your toes guessing who Paige will end up with. I wonder if this the ending is a HEA or not – I hear rumors there is a sequel in the works. I hope so! Not only do I want to see where Paige and the man she finally chooses go, but hope to see some of the supporting characters come into their own as well. 

If you are looking for a lovely steamy, English (I will mention this because – my children caught me talking with a wee English Accent), contemporary romance. I highly recommend Seven Dirty Words.
