Passion burns hot on a Singapore vacation in the sizzling second romance of Malby’s Carpe Diem Chronicles (after Boracay Vows). Two months earlier, French-Filipina businesswoman Maddie Duvall enjoyed a steamy encounter with American Lt. Col. Aidan Ryan, air attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Singapore, while he was visiting the Philippines. Neither has been able to stop thinking about it since. Now Aidan’s brother is marrying Maddie’s best friend, and their destination wedding in Singapore brings the pair back together. This time, Maddie and Ryan plan to test whether their connection goes beyond physical attraction by moving in together while they hammer out wedding plans. But when Maddie reunites with her father, a crooked French diplomat, Ryan questions her allegiances and Maddie worries about Ryan’s motives for getting close to her in the first place. Malby maintains the sexual tension throughout, punctuating it with high-intensity erotic encounters. The enticing Singapore backdrop and hints of international intrigue add depth to this spicy tale. Romance fans with wanderlust will be especially delighted. (Self-published)
