Can’t Stand the Heat
by Peggy Jaeger


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



With three successful TV series under her belt, including her cousin Kandy’s, executive producer
Stacy Peters is ready to helm her own show. But to make that happen, she has to do her network
boss one favor first—spend two months on a ranch in Montana wrangling the notoriously difficult
director of Beef Battles. Apparently, he eats producers for breakfast. Yet all Stacy can think when
she meets the lean, rugged man is how hungry he makes her . . .

Dominic Stamp—Nikko to his very few friends—has had enough interference from TV newbies. And
when Stacy climbs out of the car in Montana, he’s not convinced she’s even old enough to drive,
much less produce his show. But he can’t deny that the long-legged blonde with the stubborn will
and the dazzling smile whets his appetite. And as Stacy proves her talent with the crew and the
budget alike, Nikko vows to prove to her that love is on the menu for both of them.

This couldn’t be the new executive producer.

She looked like an intern, barely out of college, not the seasoned television producer Teddy Davis
had emailed him about.

The one he’d emailed back saying he neither wanted nor needed.

Hair the color of champagne fell just below her shoulders in a soft cascade of waves and ripples.
Even in the heat and humidity engulfing them it looked fresh. Her face was a perfect heart, a tiny
dip in the center of the hairline bifurcating her brow into two perfectly aligned sections, her flawless
chin falling into a delicate point. She had one hand out to shake his, the other shading her eyes from
the strong and harsh afternoon sun, but underneath her fingers he was able to make out a pair of
sloe-shaped eyes in a deep, forest green.

Taller than average but small boned, her legs took up most of the lissome body. With her lips held
together in a tight line, she reached him.

“I’m Stacy Peters, Mr. Stamp.”

He stopped and planted his feet, his gaze shifting to her outstretched hand and then back up to
her face without taking it. Her eyes narrowed into a determined glare and it looked as if she wasn’t
going to back down until he shook it. With reluctance, he did.

Like the rest of her, her fingers were narrow and thin as they coiled around his.

A blast of heat instantly warmed and calmed his entire body like a few shots of his favorite Irish
whiskey did after a rough and painful day. The subtle aroma of vanilla floated to him, filling his senses
with the sweet fragrance. The persistent, throbbing ache in his left leg the liquor helped chase away
was momentarily forgotten with his hand rooted in hers.

Peggy Jaeger is a contemporary romance writer who writes about strong women, the families who
support them, and the men who can’t live without them.

Family and food play huge roles in Peggy’s stories because she believes there is nothing that holds a
family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that
are as real as they are loving, Peggy brings all topics of daily life into her stories: life, death, sibling
rivalry, illness and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only
child of divorced parents she longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together
no matter what came their way. Through her books, she has created the families she wanted as that
lonely child.

Tying into her love of families, her children's book, THE KINDNESS TALES, was illustrated by her
artist mother-in-law.

Peggy holds a master's degree in Nursing Administration and first found publication with several articles she authored on Alzheimer's Disease during her time running an Alzheimer's in-patient care unit during the 1990s.

In 2013, she placed first in two categories in the Dixie Kane Memorial Contest: Single Title Contemporary Romance and Short/Long Contemporary Romance.
In 2017 she came in 3rd in the New England Reader's Choice contest for A KISS UNDER THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS and was a finalist in the 2017 STILETTO contest for the same title.
A lifelong and avid romance reader and writer, she is a member of RWA and her local New
Hampshire RWA Chapter.
