Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair’s heartracing romance continues in this hot, new novella in the Chasing Fire series.
Return to the dangerous and seductive romance that got pulses racing in the Chasing Fire trilogy…
It took ten years for Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair to find their happily ever after, and they’re not about to let anything get in their way…
Nothing could stop the passion between Allie and Hudson—not time or distance. Not even tragedy, betrayal, and blackmail. But now they’re facing a new challenge: wedding planning. And while Allie’s social status demands she put on the event of the century, her well-intentioned family and friends have her doubting her walk down the aisle…
Hudson knows tensions are pushing Allie to the brink, but he’s not letting her throw everything away over some flowers and cake. He has plans for his new bride, and unlike their last adventure, he’s determined that this time there will be no unwelcome surprises. But for all his determination and control, there’s one element Hudson Chase has never been able to predict—and she has some adventurous ideas of her own…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Scorching hot and heavenly delicious. A hearts and flowers ending to this tumultuous, heart pounding romance.
It was a love meant to be that not even time could prevent. Allie and Hudson have survived heartbreak, extortion and brushes with death. They already have the rings on their fingers but including their friends and family this time around is proving to be a challenge. Will the stress of planning a wedding befitting them put a damper on their relationship? Or can the cool and collected Hudson Chase control guarantee Allie the wedding and honeymoon of their dreams?
It’s been over a year since I first met the arrogant billionaire and the woman who stole his heart and had me turning page after page of explosive chemistry and gripping second chance drama. I loved the journey Hudson and Allie took me on and I wholeheartedly enjoyed this finishing novella where they yet again get a second chance, this time at a magnificent start of their happy ever after. And seriously, how can one not enjoy a book whose inspiration is this man?
“From here on out, April twenty-first is no longer my birthday… It is now known as Naked Day. And will be for the rest of our lives.”
Embrace Me is all about Hudson and Allie’s wedding. Contrasting all the books in the series where there was always some kind of crisis waiting for them at every corner, Embrace Me is a sort of extended epilogue that follows the couple getting ready to take their vows in front of friends and family and disconnecting from their busy lives and on a the perfectly honeymoon planned by Hudson.
But Hudson and Allie aren’t the only characters that appear, we also get some quality time with Nick and Harper (read bachelor and bachelorette party and great toasts). I do hope Ann Marie and Amy decide to write about the latter, even if it’s another novella.
Embrace Me is novella #3.5 in the Chasing Fire series by Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers. It is strongly advised that the first three books be read before this and if you have read the trilogy this is an ending worth reading. It’s written from both points of view with a happy ending.
Hudson spun to face her and within seconds Allie was in his arms, the hard planes of his body crushing her against the alley’s brick wall. Both hands framed her face as Hudson sealed his mouth over hers. His tongue pushed passed her lips, taking her in a lush, deep kiss she felt echo to her very core. Allie’s hands found their way into his hair, her fingers twisting through the dark waves, trying in vain to hold him to her when he broke their kiss.
His face hovered mere inches from hers. “You’ve been a bad girl tonight,” he rasped.
Just those few, roughly spoken words had her heart racing with excitement. Hudson was in control and she wouldn’t have it any other way. In the boardroom she stood her ground, going toe to toe with her stubborn husband on a wide range of issues. But in the bedroom he was her dominant lover and although there was a time she would have never considered such behavior a turn on, there was no denying the effect it had on her. There was a freedom in surrendering herself to him, a liberating sense of self unlike anything she’d ever experienced. With Hudson she was able to let go of her inhibitions and explore the wanton lust only he could evoke.
A soft moan escaped her lips as he ran his tongue up the column of her throat.
She hadn’t expected him to show up at her bachelorette party and had certainly never imagined him dragging her out of the club cave-man style. But there he was, touching her, kissing her, and all she could think about was how badly she wanted him.
“Did you enjoy having those men rubbing themselves all over you?” The hard ridge of his erection pressed against her though the soft fabric of her skirt. Behind them a muffled bass beat a hypnotic rhythm through the club’s darkened windows. It pounded through them, urging her to grind her body against him.
“It’s only you Hudson. It’s always been only you.”
“You can prove it to me when we get home.” He stepped back, leaving her warm and wanting, to reveal their limo idling behind him. He reached for the handle and gave the door a hard yank. “After you.”
Allie slid across the leather bench with Hudson close behind. Before he had even settled onto the seat she was in his lap. “We don’t have to wait until we get home.”
