El Mirador by Jean Maxwell


Product Description

Spanish Seduction, 1

Building a legacy...can be a beach. Rebuilding it...can be deadly.

Zara Flynn is an ambitious young architect, the daughter of renowned construction owner Tristan Flynn. When Tristan is killed in a jobsite disaster, Zara inherits both Flynn Enterprises and the problem of El Mirador, an abandoned piece of property on the Costa del Sol. Romance and intrigue are the farthest things from Zara’s mind, but gets a bulldozer-load of both when others scheme to steal her inheritance and a sexy Latin pop star tries to seduce her.

Thrown together with handsome engineer David Parker, she determines to discover the secrets of El Mirador as well as the circumstances of Tristan’s death. But Zara is already in danger of being eliminated in the same manner as her father.

As they get closer to the answers, Dave and Zara get closer to each other until their attraction ignites a romantic passion that has no shut-off valve. Zara Flynn inherits more than she bargained for beneath the steel beams and concrete of El Mirador and faces both a personal and environmental dilemma.


David lay wide awake, feeling the breeze on his skin, listening to the birds, taking in every detail of the moment. The white paneled walls, the cool cotton of the sheets, and most of all, the gorgeous girl sleeping next to him.

He wanted to touch her, kiss her, make love to her again as he had last night and hear her soft moans as he pleasured her. But he didn’t dare to wake her just yet. The picture was so perfect, so blissful, he felt suspended in time and feared that if he moved a muscle the scene might burst like a bubble and be only a dream.

He breathed deeply to catch the scent of her perfume. He tried to commit to memory the look of her hair cascading across the pillow, her eyelashes, the lightly freckled nose, the silver chain and dolphin pendant nestled at her collarbone.

The white sheet partially covered her nude body. One hand rested across her stomach, the other palm-up on the pillow. One breast lay exposed, and risking that the dream could shatter, he leaned down and licked the nipple, feeling the bumpy texture of it against his tongue. Christ, he felt hard again already. He loved everything about this woman, wanted to possess her forever.

He moved upward with his tongue, tracing a line to her throat, over her chin, and across her lips. Her closed eyes began to twitch and flutter open. She blinked, bringing him into focus. A smile crept across her face as she looked back at him. He almost felt relieved that she recognized him, that it hadn’t all been a dream and she was here in the present with him. He smiled down at her.

“Good morning, Montreal.”

“Hey, Thunder Bay,” she replied. “Or should I say, Thunder Boy?” She grinned sleepily.

Dave hoped he hadn’t made quite as much noise during their lovemaking as all that, but if he’d made her feel like she’d been caught in a crashing, rollicking Great Lakes thunderstorm and liked it, that pleased him.

She reached up and put her hand on his cheek. “Are you real?”

He turned his face so that her finger slipped between his lips and he bit it gently. “Afraid so, mademoiselle. Anything else you’d like to know?”

She smiled mischievously. “Yeah, are you ready for round two?”

He raised his eyebrows twice in a villainous fashion and leaned down to kiss her. “Ding, ding,” he answered, mimicking a ringside bell. He let their lips find each other again as he pulled the sheet away. He laid against her, his stiff cock showing her exactly how ready he was.

His hand followed the outer curve of her breast with an open palm then circled the edge of her nipple with his fingertips. They stiffened instantly and he could hear her soft sigh even though he kept her lips fully occupied. He broke their kiss in favor of taking the taut, pink-brown berry in his mouth. He swirled his tongue around it and sucked, thinking no food or drink on earth would ever taste this sweet. She groaned and leaned her head back against the pillow. Oh, he could do so much more for her.

Taking more of her breast in his mouth, he sucked harder and slid his hand down to her hip, then across her abdomen. Settling his fingers in her pubic hair, he rubbed her mound gently before sliding a finger into the wetness between her legs. She gasped and arched her back as she moved into his touch. Her slickness made his dick throb with wanting to enter her. But not yet.

He stroked her sweet hot-button of flesh and heard her breath catch with each pass. He slipped one finger inside her, then two, moving them slowly in and out until she moaned aloud.

The pressure of blood in his dick rose to a maddening level. He felt as though he’d break apart if he didn’t fuck her right this second, but no, he’d finish her and watch it happen. His mouth left her breasts and he dragged his lips across and down her belly. He heard his own voice whispering her name, “Zara...” Though it sounded ethereal and bodiless as if floating above them.

Instinctively she raised her knees and Dave thought he just might die of pleasure as he brought his head between her thighs and tasted her sex, his tongue taking plunging strokes against her clit.

Her hands rested on his head, fingers entwined in his hair as she followed his motion. He looked up and, incredibly, saw her gazing directly back at him as he continued his magic. Their eyes locked while he worked his clever tongue against her until he pushed her over the edge, watching her as she came. He could taste it, smell it, knew he’d reached his goal of bringing her to orgasm.

Her eyelids closed as if overwhelmed by the power of it. Her hands trembled as they remained tangled in his hair. Now. He needed her now and moved his body overtop her.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and drew her thighs up on either side of him. So hot and wet, he slid easily into her and felt like he’d been granted permission to enter heaven itself.

Joy and lust collided in his soul as he drove deep, without restraint, again and again. She kissed his face, his neck, rubbed her hands up and down the muscles of his back as she moved in sync with each thrust, accepting him deeply and completely.

  1. 4 chocolate dipped strawberries served with a frozen Margarita with Salt, Zara’s favorite. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2012

    Zara Flynn is an ambitious young architect, the daughter of renowned construction owner Tristan Flynn. When Tristan is killed in a jobsite disaster, Zara inherits both Flynn Enterprises and the problem of El Mirador, an abandoned hotel remnant located on a piece of ocean front property on the Costa del Sol in Spain.

    Upon arriving in Spain she is forced to put her grief over her father’s death aside and try to step into her new role as CEO. When the circumstances around her father’s death raise questions and problems begin to arise around the rebuilding of El Mirador it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems. An older couple vacationing in the area act as her surrogate parents comforting her in her time of need. While others scheme to steal her inheritance and she tries to navigate this tricky situation a sexy Latin pop star tries to seduce her. But her work takes precedent and she continually finds herself working together with handsome, sexy engineer David Parker. As they get closer to the answers surrounding her father’s death and El Mirador, Dave and Zara get closer to each other until their attraction ignites a romantic passion worthy of the Spanish heat. Dave’s sense of humor and charm prove to be a welcome distractions to all the drama in Zara’s life and she quickly learns that laughter and love could be the best antidote to all of life’s struggles. They must work together to race to discover the truth in time to save themselves and protect her legacy.

    Ms. Maxwell develops the two villains a great deal and let’s the reader know just has extensive their scheme is, spending a good deal of the story writing from their perspective. Having said that the story is very well written and complex keeping the reader anxious to see what happens next. There is nothing predictable about how things turn out. Most of the characters end up playing much larger roles than anticipated and are not who they first appear. If you like a story with a complicated plot and surprise ending then this will not disappoint. A tad more chapters added to the romantic build up and this would easily have garnered our coveted 5 strawberries but even so this is a strong 4. Very well written. Exciting plot and charming characters. The passionate scenes between Dave and Zara do not dispoint. What better way to spend a cold afternoon then on the shores of sunny Spain?

  2. Definitely worth reading! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2012

    Zara Flynn, a strong Canadian woman, has to come to terms with the loss of her father, after a suspicious explosion that took his life during the construction of a building in Indonesia. Her father, being the owner of a highly successful Architecture company, has left it all to her – along with a private purchase of the gorgeous old hotel that was destroyed in 1972.

    There are some loveable characters that come & go through out the book, a warm English couple that take Zara as an adoptive daughter, a hunk who is the head supervisor for the Flynn construction crew & who catches Zara’s attention from their first meeting, a sexy Spanish pop star who melts the hearts of everyone & becomes a big part of the story.

    The whole story was easy to follow & written really well which is what kept me turning the pages but since it is set on a gorgeous beachside town in Spain, there’s quite a few Spanish conversations & comments.

    Definitely worth reading for a little suspense, a little romance, even more fraud & backstabbing within parties who were supposed to be working together.

  3. Sizzling Hot Book Reviews 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2012

    The death of her father has been a very difficult thing for Zara to take. She may not have been around him much during the latter months of his life, but that in no way meant she didn't love him with everything she had. He was her idol and most definitely her miracle worker with his work ethic and love for his family. He left his entire business to Zara, and along with that, the old, run down, and decrepit looking resort named El Mirador.

    When arriving at El Mirador for the first time, she can hardly believe her eyes. The building is barely there, and extremely unsafe looking. She has no idea what her fathers intentions were with this property. Soon enough she meets with the fellow team that helps run her new business, and in turn, she meets an incredibly beautiful fellow Canadian named Dave Parker.

    During El Mirador, Zara struggles with finding meaning in what her father wanted to do with the old resort. She also discovers that she is being sabotaged by another employee throughout El Mirador. Someone wants this property and will stop at nothing to get it, even if it ends in Zara's death. Certain events also bring Zara and Dave closer together making her think that she might have more then one purpose for staying in this Mediterranean town.

    The characters made the book in El Mirador. Zara was a spunky little thing, with a fantastic business sense. She can most certainly stand on her own to feet. She is a strong willed woman who takes life by the horns. She is the epitome of a straight talking, no nonsense woman. I loved her for that.

    I very much enjoyed Dave as well. His smart mouth humor got a rise out of me! He was charming, devilishly handsome, and a good fit for Zara. I only wished I could have heard more from his character.

    Then we have the Latin popstar Miguel who basically stalked Zara for a time being. He grossed me out, to put it mildly. To have his mentality is to be cursed. He may have had sex appeal like no other, but he was still so disgusting.

    Finally we have Bette and Diggy. Two humorous British people with a flare like no other. (Especially Bette). They became substitute parents for Zara while her mother is away, and I found them both to be so endearing, not to forget at times hilarious They were by far my favorite characters.

    El Mirador was an action packed, spicy little novella. It had a good mix of sensual romance, a little mystery and even some humor that I found to be very appealing in this book. I find its hard to combine such qualities in a book, but found this author did it quite well. El Mirador is a book most will enjoy. I recommend it highly, and certainly feel its worth your time!!

  4. Great Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2012

    I found this to be a very engaging read, that characters were well developed and the plot was intriguing. I liked the quirkiness and unexpected traits of many of the characters. I'm looking forward to the sequel!!

  5. Reviewed at The TBR Pile 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2012

    I found the cast of characters assembled in this story to be fascinating. "Mickey Mountain" and his strange predilections, the Dark Angel, the older English couple that took Zara under there wings when they discovered she was staying alone at Club Marbella, and of course, David all added to the interesting aspects of the book. There were a couple of places that dragged, but most of the time I enjoyed the storyline and was pleasantly surprised with the ending. Although I am not a huge fan of "insta-love", I liked Zara and David together, and especially with Zara's friends and family all wanting them together, felt like they made a realistic couple. I also liked the way the prologue and epilogue, both taking place in the '70s, gave both a glimpse at Zara's father and explained the last of the mysteries surrounding the old resort.
