Summer Heston is ready to give up on men and has sworn off blind dates permanently. A chance text message and phone conversation with two mysterious friends of Grace’s changes her mind. A dangerous situation literally thrusts her into their powerful arms as the attacks on her ladies’ adults-only boutique escalate and the tone of the Divine Morality blog grows more blatantly hateful.

Ace and Kemp work diligently to protect the women of Discretion while simultaneously striving to win Summer’s heart. A minor mistake on Kemp’s part has big repercussions for their budding romance as their ability to withstand their growing attraction for Summer crumbles. When their passion finally flares out of control, their intimate tryst becomes much more than a minor indiscretion.

When an old flame knocks at the door, Summer must face her doubts and make a decision. Can she trust her instincts?

Someone once said “you have to kiss a few frogs to find your prince”. In Summer’s case it’s more like “you have to date a few dogs to find the men who will treat you like a princess”.

Divine, Texas has had its share of excitement and controversy thanks to a group of anonymous morality police who excel at stirring up trouble. Whoever is behind the spiteful rants of the Divine Morality blog has stepped up their game to include breaking and entering, vandalism, and voyeurism (not the good kind, either!). Security consultants and best friends, Ace Webster and Kent Whittier, have been led on a merry chase by the elusive blogger from book one of the Divine Creek Ranch series, Divine Grace. When Ace and Kemp meet and fall for the beautiful and curvy Summer they realize that they too now have a vested interest in stopping the slanderous poster. With the help of some really hot techy friends, the mysterious blog troll is uncovered along with some secrets that will leave one Divine resident shaken to the core.

Author Heather Rainier continues to solidify her incredible story telling talent with the Seventh installment to the Divine Creek Ranch Series. Summer’s Indiscretion is a delicious sensory overload that I couldn’t seem to put down. I met and fell in love with Summer in Maya’s Triple Dare. It was apparent even then that she was soft hearted and often under-appreciated by the men she dated. Her clever tongue, easy going sense of humor and refreshing optimism won me over and had me anticipating the story that would reward her with a stunning HEA. Ms. Rainier did not disappoint when she paired Summer with Ace and Kemp.

As I mentioned, Ace and Kemp are more than co-workers, they have a history that forged a tight bond of brotherhood. In a word, they complement one another: Where Ace is a quiet and intense, Kemp is more open and expressive. Each time they sweetly addressed Summer as “Kitten” or “Darlin’” my heart couldn’t help but give a silent sigh as it melted.

Ms. Rainier doesn’t leave her readers in the dark about what makes her heroes tick. One of the elements of her writing that I really appreciate is how she sprinkles in the past all throughout the story rather than sending the reader on a dizzying time warp. Her characters are carefully plotted out and readers are treated to advance teasers of upcoming stories by including simple but non-distracting asides. In Summer’s Indiscretion we are gifted with some insight into Lydia, Chase and Clayton’s story as well as the fun holiday romp recently released for Duke, Gage and Dr. Emma Guthrie.

As always, Ms. Rainier accentuates her stories with a fun and cheeky soundtrack. I wasn’t much of a country music fan until I started visiting Divine, TX on a regular basis. Now, I actually find myself checking Youtube for the latest videos by Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and Big & Rich. Don’t be surprised to find yourself humming the seductive words to “Steal You Away” as you read Ace, Kemp and Summer’s story. Each new story that comes out of Divine is sweet and sexy and sure to fuel some fantastic dreams. Spend some time getting know Ms. Rainiers unique town. The men are sensual, strong and protective and the women are…Divine.
