Dragan Petrovic is a simple man with simple pleasures. He is fascinated by science and technology. When he sees a lady having problems checking into his hotel, he comes to her rescue.
Lacey Blake has plans to become an interior designer but she never imagined her soon to be ex-boyfriend would leave her stranded in Prague with limited funds. One thing she never expected was to be dressed in attire similar to a hooker.
Dragan can tell by the way Lacey is dressed, she is not a streetwalker, but he cannot have her making a ruckus in his hotel. He eagerly steps in and offers her assistance, never realizing the magnetic force she would draw on him. When Dragan attends an event involving science and technology, he invites Lacey to join him. After speaking to her for less than an hour, this is one lady he eagerly desires to know. Lacey is intrigued by the handsome man who comes to her defense. She loves to call him, ‘Vic,’ using the last part of his last name. Lacey never expected to hook up with a man like Vic, but once the two connect, the sparks fly, but neither knows the course it will lead.
Sensual heat does more than sizzle in Czech Mate. Once Lacey and Dragan get together, it is almost like an inferno. I could practically feel the sensation going through Lacey when she learns how compassionate and caring Dragan is. Realizing no one has ever been that considerate; her emotions leap, and made this reader share in her experience. Lacey and Petrovic are bold and sassy. Sloane Taylor creates an interesting story, with heat, that burns with every flip of the page. She instills sharp dialogue that keeps the story flowing at a great pace that is delightful.
