Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, the best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

What a fabulous start to an all-new series! What I loved so much about this book was the heroine. Anne was beyond admirable. I loved how she was passionate about her career and even excelled in such a male-dominated profession. Her confidence, her courage, and her strength was phenomenal.

What was terrific too was the writing. JR Ward couldn’t have described Anne and Danny emotional turmoil; any better, When Anne was struggling, I felt I was struggling alongside with her. I too horrible for Anne’s counterpart Danny. You could definitely feel his guilt, his longing, and his love resonate all throughout the pages.

I had my doubts whether these two would figure it out but JR Ward convinced me that they could rise above the ashes and become one. Loved this and can not wait to read more of this series.

The Verdict:
