Billionaire Aaron Bryant lives and works on a knife’s edge; his dark, brooding persona and fearsome reputation hide a shameful family secret. So sassy maid-of-honour Zoe Parker is an unwelcome distraction when, at his brother’s wedding, she hides Aaron’s ever ringing phone down her tight pink dress!

But Aaron’s never had a problem like this before! Aaron’s arrogant, skilled retrieval of his property sparks a chemistry that ends in a mind-blowing one-night stand. But such uncontrollable passion leaves an indelible mark on their lives. He never expects to see Zoe again – until two little lines appear on a stick…

HIS BRAND OF PASSION by USA Today Bestselling author Kate Hewitt is a Harlequin Presents release for July 2013. Zoe Parker couldn�t hold her irritation any longer as she saw the groom�s brother and best man texting in his phone yet again during her sister�s wedding ceremony. So she hides his phone. When Aaron Bryant couldn�t find the phone, he just assumed that it had been stolen. But later he took the phone from Zoe�s dress where she had hidden it. Yet touching her, he felt the fire and sizzle in his blood stream. Zoe felt it too and when Aaron asked her to, she went with him. Could their one night together turn into something more? Is there a future for this commitment phobic billionaire and Zoe? HIS BRAND OF PASSION is a romance packed with sizzle and sexual tension amid the deep emotional drama, adding to the page turning quality of the book. I don�t believe I had come across such an emotionally charged story in recent times. Author Kate Hewitt did a great job showing how people lie to themselves to save their feelings and soothe their egos. Highly recommended for all lovers of romance.

A novel and intriguing beginning to this book immediately captures your attention. Aaron is an interesting study. Wounded and conditioned by his childhood he is afraid to reveal his true character but overall has a pleasing personality. Zoe, on the other hand, is somewhat hard to fully take to. She seems unsure of herself and needs a crutch to depend on. She was ready to fall in love with anyone who would show her some affection as evidenced by her past which gives me rise to question the depth of her feelings. The book did flow nicely though and kept your attention. Eight out of ten

Attending a wedding as guest or as part of the bridal party is either way very much a happy event. But for some it can be very sad if when in your case you have not found Mr Right and instead you find ourself still single and very much going nowhere towards a happy ever after. This is the case for Zoe, she has been bitten by the love bug four times in the past and on all four occasions she thought she had found 'the one' but it turned out these were more like little reminders that she always pushes the other person too hard to reveal their feelings, to be open and honest, basically she gets what most men hate, clingy! These upsets in the romance department have however made her stronger and she has a zest for life. She works hard and she is truly good at her job. She has a okay place to live and gets by from day to day just fine. But when at her sisters wedding she becomes more than just a little irritated with the best man who has no focus on the wedding and instead is texting away like a love struck teenager, she finds herself pushing yet again. This time to get I'll-kiss-you-right-out-of-your-pretty-pink-dress Aaron to learn that it is simply not appropriate behaviour for best man to be glued to a phone during the happy couple saying their vows. So she steals his phone and hides it in the front of her bridesmaid dress! But Aaron is not the kind of man to simply back down and let it be, even for a gorgeous woman and sets out to get his phone back. This leads to one passionate night and leads to a few weeks later, with Aaron receiving a text from Zoe simply saying " I am pregnant you ass". Not the words any man wants to hear after a one night stand and so not the words a hard-working barely making ends meet single woman needs, but it is what it is, and the real question is what are they going to do about it? The character of Zoe was one I truly felt sorry for. Finding Mr Right is never easy and for some it never even happens , but for poor Zoe she was always ending up with Mr Wrong! Even when getting involved with Aaron when there is no other choice, it seemed that nothing right was ever going to happen for her. But the author made her a strong woman, a fighter and she fights back with everything she has to pull herself back up. But as everyone knows at some point you do lose your energy to always fight and you need that little hint of tender loving care from another person to help you get back up again. And for Zoe that is Aaron, I cried when he gave it his best shot to try and comfort Zoe. Apart from loving the the fact that the author made Zoe strong she also made Zoe feisty, I laughed out loud at some of the changes Zoe brings to Aaron' s live. I kept thinking " Oh my but this one has got gust!" The character of Aaron was at first a true bastard in every sense of the word. He wants revenge and gets it by taking the little phone stealing Zoe to bed. Only when the blow of pregnancy hits him he reacts not in the manner most of the Harlequin Presents reads of today gives us. He does not go the route of marriage or even the "I will provide for you both" route, and if your thinking he goes "Go away I never want to see you again" you would be wrong again. No ladies this hero does a complete 160 degree reverse of the normal average Harlequin Presents hero, and he keeps this despicable attitude going throughout the read, this man's brand of passion is only hot between the sheets for in real life he is all ice. But to find out what he does and does not do you will need to read the book, all I will say is that as myself you will find yourself hating this man and ready to put your arms around poor Zoe and tell her it will all be okay. Yet the more I read about him and his bastard responses and despicable manners towards Zoe the more I found myself intrigued and liking him just a little bit more, I knew the author had a reason for it and I was overjoyed when it came spilling out it made perfect sense and I congratulate the author for the unique twisted hero! The backdrop settings were filled with passion and a sense of wonder, it all blended in so very well. From the art centre where suppressed pain is brought to life which matched with the pain and suffering of the read to the cold as ice apartment which matched with the icy attitude of Aaron. The dialogue was funny but passionate in the start which immediately captured my attention letting me know that this will be no slow read, it just as quickly moved to emotional and dramatic when it all goes wrong. I enjoyed every single minute of this fabulous read. The author kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation as to what will happen next for for this gorgeous couple. I found myself smiling everytime along with Zoe when Aaron loses his composure as the ice man and reveals a smile, it had me wanting to shout" That's it Zoe! Another piece of the wall just came down, keep pushing!" I am taking away a message of , never let your past influence your future, the person you have become has nothing to do with the way you were raised or even by whom, it has to do with what you do with the set of cards life dealt you and how you chose to play the game. This read was passionate, fun, exciting,sensual and a truly compelling read. I highly recommend this read for all fans of romances with ice cold hero's meeting their match when coming face to face with a ray of sunshine ready to melt all their defences. 5/5 star review "A phone,a dress and a night of passion leads to a lifetime of change"
