SOUTHERN COMFORT, SAVANNAH STYLE by USA Today Bestselling Author Dianne Castell


Hot and Irresistible:

Four Southern gals

Four hot guys

One lost jewel

A splash of ghosts

A mix of voodoo

And a big dose of mystery

   that brings them all together



Hot and Irresistible is the second book in my Savannah Sizzles series and those two titles tell all.


Nothings more fun or steamier or more intriguing than falling in love in Savannah. Have you ever been? Then you know the restored mansions, the subtle glow of the old lamplights through the big live oaks, the clip-clop of the horse drawn carriages, jazz wafting from an open window and whispers of ghosts and voodoo and things that happened long ago make this a city like no other. And the Southerners who live there are unique characters who live a little slower, cook a bit better and fall in love hard and fast and forever.


My goal was to make the reader feel as if they were there with my characters living in Savannah. I wanted it to be about the South and about romance and the problems and rewards of living and loving. Hot and Irresistible has a Yankee hero who just doesn’t get that who your parents are play a big part in who you are. That the Civil War was truly that unfortunate Northern occupation and that friendships run true and fast and deep and last a lifetime and are often sealed in blood.


Hot and Bothered was the first book in the series. In old-South Savannah, family name and seasoned money mean a lot…especially when you don’t have either. So, Charlotte, Prissy, Bebe and BrieAnn bonded because they didn’t really have family like the other kids and swore they’d never look up their biological parents…if they didn’t love us enough to keep us then the hell with them. Then twenty years later Otis Parish died and everything changed.


Hot and Irresistible and Hot and Bothered are fun and romantic, steamy and very sexy. The stores will take you away and make you want to visit Savannah with your own special someone. I loved writing these books and wish you a good time reading them.
