FIRE AND ICE
Even though popular romance novelist Margie has almost no experience when it comes to love, she writes under the pen name Silva, who is reputed to have had many lovers. Her real identity is a secret kept from the media. One day, she learns that Cannon, the elder brother of her sister’s fiancé, is opposed to their marriage, so she calls him up. He informs her that the son of a plutocrat and a poor girl are a poor match. In order to convince him otherwise, Margie visits his villa in Florida, but can she resist his charms? And what will happen when he finds out that she writes the “pornography” he looks down on?

Okay, this was a funny one for sure. The hero goes to see the heroine in order to convince him to give his blessing to the marriage of his brother and the heroine's sister. The hero thinks the marriage shouldn't happen because of his marriage is just like the brothers: fall in love with another girl from a different class who can't go with the busy schedule of the hero and cheats on him with an instructor. Neither are able to change each other's mind and the hero leaves......without paying for his scotch, very bad manners. During this conversation, they talked about a romance/erotic writer and how bad and unrealistic (mostly from the hero's side) the writing is. What he doesn't know is the writer is the heroine who plans not to reveal in order to give more reason of why the sister and brother can't be together. The two of them run into each other where the heroine gives hero the business like leaving her to pay the scotch bill. His face just blanks and sweats because he found out that he forgot about the bill and makes it up to her by taking her to dinner. The hero learns that the heroine was once married but it was an abusive one that ended when the husband died in a car accident. Their conversation together is interesting becomes more interesting when the hero and heroine go with their siblings to see the men's mom. The woman is a real hoot because no matter what the hero and brother do or say, she just lets it go in one ear and out the other. For example, when the hero sees the stack of naughty books, he scolds his mother for reading it and she keeps saying, "Sex scenes," over and over until the hero buttons his lip. It's hilarious and fresh for me with the hero and heroine's bickering and the fact that neither will back down. Then they slowly start to connect until they have a special night. Then the next morning, the heroine's editor comes by with big news that the impossible has happened: her book is being turned into a movie and that means she'll have to do a book signing. The hero doesn't take well to the news that the heroine is the erotic/romance writer that he has criticized so harshly. A fight ensures until the mother tries to fake a heart pain but she has used it so much that the hero and brother know that she's faking it. The heroine leaves to go to California to place her input when they're writing out the script. Two weeks later, the heroine gets a panicked call from the sister of the hero being cruel, so the heroine races back to find the mother there to pick her up in a ball gown. Then they take her to a salon and have her dressed to impress. After that, the hero appears in a tux and he takes her out on a car ride. He apologizes for his words and praises the heroine's book after reading it. Finally, they make it to their destination where a large party is for the hero and brother to announce and introduce their fiancees. The sister is overjoyed but the heroine is at a loss because she's stuck over the fact that the hero has introduced her as his fiancee. In fact, she's in a total daze throughout the entire party until the hero and her are finally alone. There is a bunch on shouting on the heroine's part when she asks the hero when did he propose to her. Again, the hero's face goes pale and he remembers that he never asked the heroine to marry in the first place!!!! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I was laughing my head off when I read that scene. The hero makes it up by getting down on one knee and asking the heroine with a please marry him. The heroine responds with a yes. This is was definitely worth renting.
