Ray Smith can’t believe one of his new teammates is a girl. He appreciates girls as much as the next guy, but he doesn’t want to depend on one while battling a fire. Ray can’t help pushing Marcie’s buttons just to see her sizzle, but he soon realizes that Marcie is a top-notch firefighter and he is lucky to have her on his team. Ray isn’t the only one watching Marcie; someone is setting fires and the firebug knows that Marcie has spotted something suspicious. Now the firebug has targeted Marcie and her and Ray need to figure out who the culprit is before the timer on Marcie’s life counts down to zero.
A HEATED ROMANCE by Candace Gold is a sizzling sensual journey into the lives of professional firefighters. I loved watching Marcie show everyone that she deserved her position and that she was as good as anyone else on her team. I really enjoyed watching Ray grow as a person and learn that just because Marcie was a woman she could still be an outstanding firefighter and also a sexy desirable lover. I was hooked from the first page of this book and Ms. Gold just kept pulling me farther and farther into the book with the hot and steamy romance between Marcie and Ray and with the added twist of a firebug stalker. This is an excellent book and one I recommended to anyone who loves spicy romance mixed with intriguing suspense.
