Fast on the heels of her #1 Essence bestseller, Addicted, Zane steams our reading glasses with this smart and seductive novel depicting the volatile, sensual escapades of two unforgettable pairs of lover.
A national bestselling author and formerly a self-published phenomenon, Zane ushers readers into an exhilarating world that is rich with original, fresh characters. There's Tempest, barren from a botched abortion, who is a dedicated counselor at a teen pregnancy center. She unexpectedly falls head over heeels in love with Geren, a man who brags constantly about his desire to have a house fulll of babies. As their relationship blossoms, Tempest is anxiety-ridden over her secret infertility, only to be astonished when she discovers that Geren has a huge secret of his own -- which will take her life in directions she never imagined. To add to the drama, there's Tempest's best friend, Janessa, and her cheating boyfriend, Dvonté. Just as Janessa decides to give the troubling boyfriend a rest and get on with her life by entering pharmaceutical school, she becomes pregnant. When Dvonté turns his back, she has to make a difficult, life-altering decision.
The Heat Seekers is a wonderfully engrossing novel about friendship, love pain, and ultimately the ability to step up to the plate by being a responsible father and partner. A certifiable page-turner, this story delivers all the dramatic goods as it takes readers through a romantic journey in search of total satisfaction and self-knowledge.
