Six months after her lover died in an arsonist's blaze, firefighter Lora Spade calls in the FBI's elite Serial Service Division to track the elusive killer. When Special Agent Kenton Lake is lured into a violent inferno, Lora pulls him to safety and is stunned—not by the fire, but by her own searing attraction to Kent. For the first time in months, she longs for something other than vengeance. Kenton's interest in Lora should be purely professional. But one fleeting kiss and he can't get her out of his mind. Her combination of strength and vulnerability makes him want to protect her, and that means solving this case—and fast. For even the passion igniting between them can't hide a terrifying truth: Lora is the next target in a murderer's sadistic, fiery game.
