Southern vixen Erica DeLongpre journeys to Spain to find the horse of her dreams, never expecting to find a man capable of stirring her sexual awareness.
Damián Xérès, a renowned bullfighter is deliciously skilled on a horse—and in bed. But a woman from Damian's past rattles Erica's confidence and threatens the very essence of her trip.
With Lucia waiting for the slightest chink in her armor, Erica can't help wonder what lies ahead in those Hot Spanish Nights.
Erica DeLongpre travels to Spain to purchase a horse she's always dreamed about.
She meets Damian Xeres, renowned bullfighter and expert horseman. Erica doesn't expect her body's reaction to Damian's. She is after all engaged to be married, although she doesn't love Trey. Damian is pure male and Erica can't stop thinking about riding him. When Erica sees Damian with a woman not long after she and Damian made love, she's hurt and upset. Damian insists it's over with his ex. But Lucia has other plans, she wants Damian and her actions threaten Damian's horses and Erica's safety.
I really enjoyed reading Hot Spanish Nights by Bianca Swan. The story was well written and the hero and heroine were very real and likeable. Damian's character is sexy and confident and he's known as a playboy. I thought Damian was all alpha male but he was also vulnerable and sweet. He's just looking for the right woman to spend the rest of his life with. Erica seemed not to know her own effect on men. She's just a nice southern girl who wants a horse perfect for her. The book had a lot of steamy, hot sex between Damian and Eric. I liked how Ms. Swan injected the horsemanship terms into the story and that some had double meanings that gave some humor and fun to the read. I wasn't expecting the book to end where it did and I turned the page back and reread it to make sure I hadn't missed anything. I said "Nooooooo, you can't end it here." Hot Spanish Nights was a great book, but I do wish there had been an epilog. Maybe we can revisit Erica and Damian in a future book, Ms. Swan??
