Looks Are Deceiving
Newsflash!: Looks Are Deceiving
You Never See Everything.
All shadows and mystery, Elissa Baker's in hot pursuit of something bigger, uglier, and meaner than Greg Moretti, and she keeps her destiny with the scum of the Earth a closely guarded confidence. Only Greg--muscles, brains, and passion--can wreck her long-laid path by being Mister Right At The Wrong Time, and refusing to let her go.
How can she resist her Latin lover's dark-chocolate eyes always arresting her, his hypnotic lure stealing her soul, and dealing lusty persuasion like trump cards in a fixed bet?et?
Restauranteur Greg Moretti is crazy for a woman who leads a smoke-and-mirrors life. He'll fix that by cooking up some heat, triggering a little hunger, and melting the ice-wall around her world. She'll have to choose between Greg and the criminal world. What holds Elissa from his total consumption? Why does she keep so many secrets?
Greg will take no hostages nor will he back down from his chase until he identifies his competition and makes Elissa want him more than her other distractions. Good boys can be bad too...and lethal to the heart.
The serendipitous solution to the cold-case murder of Greg's father leads to a gun battle that changes everything. Who invited the Mob?
Someone's going to lose, and someone will die. Another someone. Everything changes with a bullet.

How many times have our parents told us to
never judge a book by its cover? In Ms. Hart's erotic romance thriller
Looks Are Deceiving, the title says it all.
This tantalizing story will have you on the edge of your seat until the
very end. Moreover, the sexual chemistry between Greg and Elissa will
set your body on fire. Greg is one ruggedly handsome, sensual Italian
who knows how to mesmerize a woman with his mix of dominance and

Elissa is endearing and will make you want to switch places with her in

are Deceiving is in itself a deceit. It starts out lighthearted
with a prank being pulled by three lifelong friends on a fourth.
They seek and out and proposition the most unattractive female
they can find and offer to pay her to go on a date with their
friend, Greg Moretti. Being a broke student, who is seriously
debating if she can afford real ketchup, Elissa takes them up on
their offer. The joke is on the three when Elissa shows up for
her date and is a bombshell. They caught her at her worst after
a long day of yard work.

Michele Hart has written an
artful erotic romance with strong notes of suspense that leaves the
reader breathless. I was drawn into the sensual world that opens up for
Elissa as her love for Greg blossoms. Ms. Hart has created a page-turner
that leads the reader from the underworld connections of the restaurant
business to the glittering social scene of power and money, woven
through with dark, sexy ribbons of desire and passion, danger and
Looks are Deceiving is a fast paced, engaging novel that captures the reader at the start. Michele Hart employs a technique I appreciate in books by starting the reader off by thrusting directly into a situation where the heroine, Elissa, is challenged by a strange and unusual offer. By the end of the first chapter, Michele Hart has already captured the reader in the intense chemistry between Elissa and the hero, Greg. The passion builds through the book as the author expertly develops a deeper relationship between Elissa and Greg.
Elissa is a charming mixture of shy and daring, adventurous and pragmatic, sexy and, yes, frumpy at times. Driven by an undeniable attraction for Greg at first, it soon becomes obvious that Elissa's desires are complicating a much deeper goal. Greg's motives are more pure and straightforward, but no less complicated. As the single minded, determined hero, he suffers from a flaw that real men are often accused of. Greg sometimes fails to be direct about the smaller details. Between Elissa's intentional deceptions and Greg's lack of explanations, the plot twist and turns in unpredictable ways. Looks are Deceiving has many layers of depth and a reader would be well advised to keep the title in mind when starting in on this novel. Even once you think you've figured it all out, there is still a mystery to be revealed in the last chapter.
Michele thrusts the
reader directly into the action from the beginning and keeps them there.
With sizzling sex, engaging heroine and hero, a full range of colorful side
characters and a well-developed plot, I highly recommend Michele Hart's
novel for anybody who loves their romances filled with suspense.
