THE FORBIDDEN BRIDE
THE FORBIDDEN BRIDE (4.5) by Debra Cowan: Five years ago Detective Robin Daly was waiting for her groom at the altar when Oklahoma State Fire Marshal Nate Houston stopped the wedding, and she never found out why. Just when it seems she's come to terms with the situation, the two are forced to work together to find a serial arsonist. At first Robin can hardly stand to look at Nate, much less say two words to him, but soon, instead of wanting to kill him, she wants to get to know him better. Now about that wedding ... While the mystery revolves around investigating fires, in Cowan's terrific conclusion to the Hot Zone trilogy, the passionate love story is explosive -- which makes for one "hot" read.
