Hot Summer, Judy Powell’s award-winning romance novel, hit cyberspace with the launch of the E-Book in Amazon’s Kindle Store this month. At the attractive price of US $0.99 the novel is now accessible to a much wider reading audience.
Hot Summer, which is set in Jamaica and Chicago, is an intriguing blend of Jamaican and African American cultures. It tells the story of Summer Jones and her roller-coaster romance with suave, sexy and oh, so arrogant record producer, Lance Munroe. Summer’s quick temper and sharp tongue keep landing her in hot water with him but no matter how hard she tries she can’t deny her growing attraction for him. Then they go on a business trip to Jamaica – and that’s when things get really hot! This page-turning story is not only a sizzling romance but it also pays tribute to the Jamaican culture and people.
The novel has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from various book review clubs and individuals. Sample comments include :
“Ms. Powell entangles you into the ecstasy of romance that takes place in both Chicago and Jamaica. If this romance doesn’t make you tingle I don’t know what will” (OOSA Online Book Club).
