Book description
No Red Roses" links to Iris Johansen's previous Loveswept title, "Return to Santa Flores", re-introducing us to singer/superstar Rex Brody. Rex come out to the east coast to meet with his favorite aunt, who he learns (erroneously) is being bilked by a so-called psychic, while said psychic's niece is having an affair with his aunt's husband. However when he meet said niece, Tamara Ledford, he decides that instead of having Tamara's Aunt Elizabeth arrested he will take Tamara out of the picture, and the town of Somerset, by taking her to Las Vegas with him, not so much as to help his aunt, but to keep with him the woman he has been searching for. Tamara is a skilled herbalist who is writing a book on flowers and there meaning, so Rex showers her with blossoms - and breaks her heart - 'for there were no red roses'. You will have to read the book to find out why Rex wouldn't give Tamara any red roses. And it is worth the read without the teaser. This is another sweet story from Iris Johansen. In addition to Rex and Tamara, Jenny and Steve from 'Return to Santa Flores" makes an appearance in this story as well. This time Tamara as well as Jenny get themselves into a scrape that Rex has to get them out of. This is a nice, sweet heartfelt story whose emotions will touch you and make you smile.

After taking a break from pop stardom to turn his musical hand to composing-- earning both a Tony and an Oscar for his efforts-- Rex Brody is making a triumphant return to performing with a sold-out, coast-to-coast tour. But he has one crucial stop to make first: his aunt's home in New Hampshire. A local psychic is bilking his beloved aunt, and Rex is seeing red. But when he meets the woman's gorgeous niece, his anger quickly yields to desire. Rex Brody always gets what he wants ... and what he wants is to take this beautiful brunette on the road with him. Tamara Ledford lives a quiet life in a rural community, and she's quite happy with it. As a skilled herbalist and canny businesswoman, she's making a name for herself-- even if her reputation in other areas dates back to her high school years. Though she tries to be as discreet and reserved as possible, there's a sultry woman burning at her core. But when the arrogant and extremely intriguing Rex Brody makes a play for her, Tamara fights her instincts. Their chemistry seems highly combustible, but can a small-town girl really find happiness with big-time star?… (more)
