TURNING UP THE HEAT

I'm watching the Winter Olympics as I write this, and the biggest snowstorm to hit the Northeast this season is howling outside my window-- there's seven inches on my doorstep already.  I adore snow, but I'm clearly in the minority at this time of year.  Most of the people I've talked to today have had more than their fill of winter.  Well, take heart, ye snowbound and shovel-weary, because this list is for you! 

The romances featured this month have one thing in common: they all take place somewhere HOT.  From the desert to the beach, from the bayou to the jungle (with the occasional firehouse or weredragon's lair in between), I've booked an armchair tour of the warmest latitudes (and steamiest heroes) in romantic fiction, guaranteed to melt away your winter blues.  Turn down that thermostat and pull up a beach chair; it's time to visit the tropics!
