The Hawaiian word of the day is
It is the ancient royal sport of sledding. Holua is also the name of the sled. Allen and Ton from Auction Hunters found a replica holua in a storage auction when they visited Hawaii. Allen, of course, had to try it out!
There is no doubt the Wilder Brothers would also try the holua. The Wilder Brothers - Cam, Stone, and TJ - are the heroes in Jill Shalvis' "Instant" series. Book 1 is Cam's story in INSTANT ATTRACTION. Book 2 is Stone's story in INSTANT GRATIFICATION - I recently reviewed and featured it at this link. Book 3 is TJ's story in INSTANT TEMPTATION. I posted my review on Amazon at this link and Goodreads at this link:
Get Your Pulse Racing
To Harley, the landscape around Wishful, California, is exhilarating, untamed, and more than a little dangerous. The same could be said for T.J. Wilder, who's invited himself along on her trek to study a rare coyote. Harley's career is riding on this trip, and she doesn't need a stubborn, incredibly sexy distraction. But T.J. is a professional guide who knows when to stay back and when to provide invaluable expertise-just like he's done since they were in high school. And Harley, as usual, is torn between throttling him and giving in to the raw attraction that's been smoldering all these years.
T.J. knows how proud and capable Harley is, but he's damned sure not letting her put herself at risk when there are illegal hunters in the area. She needs him, with the same soul-stirring urgency that he's always craved her. And here, in this beautiful place days from civilization, he'll finally have a chance to prove it-over and over again...
