From the Author
SHE WANTED SOME POINTERS...
Catherine Harris can't think of a time she *wasn't* in love with Luke Van Buren. Unfortunatly, he's too stubborn to see it. He treats her like a kid sister and clearly doesn't see her as a woman. Cat tells Luke she wants to meet Mr. Right - with his help!
HE WAS THE PERFECT TEACHER...
Luke can't believe his bad luck. He's watched out for Cat for years. Now she's older and gorgeous, the feelings he has sure aren't brotherly! So when she asks him to teach her the art of seduction...well, he's more than a little reluctant.
But when could he *ever* say no to Cat?
From the Inside Flap
"I've found my Mr. Right," Catherine murmured.
"Who," Luke asked dangerously, "is he?"
"I'd rather no say right now. But before I do anything, I'd like you to give me some pointers." She gave him a guileless look. "Your input will be invaluable...because he's very much like you."
"You know. Sexy. Sophisticated. A ladies man."
Luke groaned. "A player." He raked his fingers through his hair until it stood up like a shark fin.
Catherine smiled. "Exactly. If anyone can tell me how to seduce a player, you'd be the one."
Luke leaned closer, crowding her. "You want me to teach you how to seduce a man?"
"Don't think you can?" Cat taunted.
"If I wanted to, which I don't, I would."
Cat grinned. "Bet you can't."

Cherry Adair takes a faintly taboo subject - man/woman love towards your step-siblings - and makes a wonderful and sexy romp!
Cat Harris, daughter of a serial relationship mama, wants a family. A real family. One she gets in spades when her mama marries into the Van Buren family. Her mama doesn't stay married, but Cat remains close to her step dad and step brother. Luke isn't really nice to her and Cat spends years hoping for Luke to turn into a real big brother.
Unfortunately, by the time Luke turns into her dream big brother, she discovers she's helplessly in love with him.
After the death of Luke's father, whom she's been taking care of, Cat decides to join Luke in the "big city" and try to land her a husband - and she decides Luke is going to help her. She figures that Luke will realize she's there...and available...and he'll fall in love with her.
What follows is an absolute delight. And if you can keep from laughing during the opening scene of the book, you have more control than I do!!
Luke, meanwhile, doesn't think any man is worthy of Cat, himself included. Nevertheless, he agrees to help her despite the jealousy that plagues him. It doesn't take long, however, for Luke to realize that the only Mr. Right he wants in Cat's life is himself.
Cherry Adair's latest release is a sexy and delightful romp that satisfies from start to finish. I highly recommend picking up a copy of this one.
(sexual content = PG-13)
What I liked about this book is that it told the story from both character's viewpoints. She is trying to make him aware of her as a woman, but unknown to her, he's been aware of that fact for a long time and has been trying to resist it. She's a nester, he's a player, she wants marriage, he wants to be free. Both have issues resulting from their parents' multiple marriages.
The plot device to bring them together, while a familiar one, worked in this book, because the sexual tension was maintained without becoming silly. I've usually stayed away from the Harlequin Temptation books just because of the covers which always seem to show photos of people half-undressed in bed, but I was pleased with this one and may try more in the series since the phrase "you can't judge a book by it's cover" seems to apply with them. :-)
Luke swore to his dying father that he would take care of Cat. He'd promised Cat, as well, to always be an available and supportive big brother. Now his feelings are not at all brotherly, but he gave his word. Besides, he's a freewheeling playboy and she seeks security. He's a daredevil who enjoys variety and she's a virgin. He wants affairs and she wants marriage. With nothing in common and Cat living with him, Luke's now expected to find Mr. Right for her while his own hormones rage. But he can't give in to his dark desires because Cat's too good to toy with; she's a keeper.
The beauty of San Francisco comes alive as the backdrop to Cherry Adair's SEDUCING MR. RIGHT. Ocean breezes, however, can't cool the frenzied passion shared by Cat and Luke. Indeed, having had my own sexy, older step-brother, I find the premise absolutely wonderful and terrifically original! Fighting one's own desires has never been as much fun, and loosing is even better! With an adventuresome plot, appealing and real characters, and scorching scenes, SEDUCING MR. RIGHT comes very highly recommended.
