#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a passionate story from the thrilling Night Tales series....
Arson investigator Ryan Piasecki was a man who got the job done no matter what the obstacle...or how beautiful she was. Ambitious executive Natalie Fletcher's new business was going up in smoke, literally, and she needed Ryan's help to catch the arsonist. But if he wasn't careful, the sparks flying between him and this hothouse rose would erupt into a five-alarm blaze - and they'd both be engulfed by the Night Smoke.

a lover of books and finer things
I began reading Nora Roberts books when Witness came out. I loved the book and couldn't wait for the next one. Since then I've been trying to read all of her books. Her older books always piss me off like this one. The men are sooo sexist! What is with this whole I'm so amazing that you're going to sleep with me crap? If a fire inspector ever acted the way Rye did towards a woman and victim he'd be fired. Needless to say her female characters have gotten stronger and capable of taking care of themselves without going into shock when fire appears. This was an ok book with the typical happily ever after ending but the first half of this book had me wanting to return it. It got more interesting but it took a while.
nice and adequate
The build up was all in chapters 28-30, took forever to even get there. Way,way,too many F words, GD words, it's like " oh it's getting to the end of the book! I need to cuss here so it will seem like this story is really intense"
Ms Rudds characters were good, a little soft for the men and main character seems to be tripin' with all those husky sighs and junk.
Disappointed because the author thinks that mystery stories must have trash talk in them to make them good. I maybe could have expected the villain to to fouled mouthed.....but the male heroic lead as well? It just didn't work for me.
I have many NR books and an extremely large listening library as well and this is one of the few I have had trouble finishing because of the foul language. I will be looking for another author that can fill my needs without so much vulgarities all at once T the end of the book. It's like she knew what people would think, so she used a tiny slip at the beginning then in then last 3 chapters she forgot to use a thesaurus when she need a word That wasn't a sware word. It seems like every other word out of the villain and heroe's mouth is fill with vulgaritie. Very, very disappointed in Ms Roberts.
