Firefighter Patrick Barre is determined to hide away in the woods of Vermont. He's content to do his job, remodel his house, and enjoy the company of his arson-detection dog, Midas. Scars from the fire that destroyed his family keep him from letting anyone into his life.

Gini Claremont uses her camera to celebrate the beauty of life. Nature soothes her, while anger is dangerous for Gini--and anyone near her. If she doesn't guard her emotions, her surroundings could go up in flames. Living alone, keeping busy, and letting her family keep watch on her is best for everyone.

When an arsonist declares war on their town, Patrick and Gini reluctantly band together to sift through the ashes, each holding a secret close to the heart. As the arson escalates, so does their mutual attraction. Will teaming up put out the fires, or start a whole new one?

Catrina's Satin Sheets Review.

In the spirit of full disclosure I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Honestly, it took a while for me to be drawn into the story, probably because the exposition and descriptions are heavy handed. But, once I was drawn in, I couldn't stop reading it.

Both of the main characters were easy to connect to.

Gini has a dangerous secret that her family has kept hidden {in order to protect her} for many years.

Patrick is a many faceted firefighter and a fire investigator, who {because of his insecurities which stem from a childhood tragedy and a lousy would-be-lover's treatment of him} is convinced he'll never find true happiness.

Patrick's dog {Midas} and Gini's cat {Saber} were some of my fave characters. So was Patrick's kitten {Whisper}. They were so realistically portrayed that I "oohed" and "awed" a lot during their time in the spot light, no matter how brief it was.

Gini and Patrick were well developed. In fact, all of the characters were. But, the one who stood out the most was the one who kept setting all the fires. Reading her parts {yup the villain is a woman} put me inside her mindset the firmest. The way she described her fascination with fire was creepy.

I enjoyed the entire cast of characters. And I look forward to reading more works by this talented author.
