The pulse-pounding style by, New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair delivers a sizzling erotic romance about a sexy billionaire who’s on the run—and the hit-man-turned-handyman who’s supposed to kill her.
Sex with a stranger. Learn to drive. Learn to cook. Learn to pole dance. Sex under the stars. Buy a truck. These are just a few of the things on Amelia Wentworth’s bucket list, but as the CEO and face of a multi-billion-dollar cosmetic empire, she’s never quite found the time to do them.
Until, after a series of accidents, Amelia discovers that someone wants her dead. But who? And why? She has no time for questions as she changes her name to Mia, buys a secluded fixer-upper near the Louisiana bayou where no one will recognize her, and starts checking things off her bucket list like there’s no tomorrow—which there might not be.
Meanwhile, Cruz Barcelona is a hit man who’s promised himself this will be his last job. Then he’ll take the money and move to a warm, sunny place where he doesn’t have to hide anymore. But when Cruz goes undercover to Mia’s ramshackle house, he starts to realize there’s far more to this poor-little-rich-girl than he thought—and he starts to fall for her. Which is going to make his job a whole lot harder…

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY gives Cherry Adair’s BLUSH a Starred Review! March 16, 2015
Sizzling chemistry adds to the heat of Bayou Cheniere, La., in Adair's knockout contemporary romantic thriller. Hit man Cruz Barcelona always looks out for number one and he doesn't kill anyone who doesn't deserve it. His current target, Amelia Wellington-Wentworth, a cosmetics billionaire gone (presumably) bad, is slated to be his last—and perhaps his best. After all, a woman who supposedly allowed hundreds of Chinese children to slave in her factory clearly deserves to die. Amelia has gone into hiding, and when he finds her, she is definitely not what he'd anticipated. Their first meeting leaves sheets and pages scorching, and the fire just burns hotter as both characters develop into well-rounded and likeable people. When Cruz realizes he may be a pawn in someone else's game, he must decide whether to complete the contract or find out the truth before he and Amelia both become casualties of business. Fast-paced action and tidbits of humor pepper a compact plot wound tight with sexual tension.
