BURNING DESIRE (4) by Kayla Perrin: Fire department captain Mason Foley left a lucrative career as an NBA player to dedicate his life to helping others. While shooting a firefighter calendar for charity, he meets and becomes enthralled by Sabrina Crawford, one of the first women to reject his advances. Spurned by all the men in her life, Sabrina is used to doing things on her own. But when a series of events threaten her life, she may have to rely on Mason to save her. This book is utterly believable as many of us use our pasts as an excuse to guard our hearts. The characters are well rounded, though the author places a heavier emphasis on the heroine than the hero. Readers can relate to the natural progression of the relationship and the unpredictability of the story.
