A LICK OF FLAME
Sensual and scorching, the second installment of the Boys of Beachville series sizzles with strong, intensely passionate characters. Their scandalous rooftop trysts are balanced by a growing romance that adds depth and emotion to the developing relationship. Though the story isn’t long enough to support the secondary suspense plot thoroughly, the unique history shared by the two leads and the uninhibited passion that erupts between them keep the pages turning.
Ever since firefighter Sean Adams saved ex-cop Madison Kelly’s life in a warehouse fire, he has dreamed of her strength and her warmth, knowing she is everything he has ever wanted. However, though Madison has been working as his personal security during a photo shoot in his small town, she never seems willing to give him the time of day. What Sean doesn’t know is that he is Madison’s ultimate fantasy, but his reputation as a heartbreaker and the scars she bears from her ordeal have her convinced Sean could never fall for her. When a single glance leads to a night of passion, Sean is determined to prove to Madison that their attraction is far more than skin deep. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $3.50)
