Tess doesn't like Gage. He's too rude. Too arrogant. Too damn...male. Worse yet, she doesn't trust him. Forced into an uneasy alliance, Tess and Gage race to stop the killer from striking another fatal match. But Gage's fragile hope for redemption is put to the test when Tess becomes ensnared in a homicidal pyromaniac's deadly obsession. And time is running out.

"A Perfect Ten! As hot, compelling, and all-consuming as a five-alarm fire...dynamic...fast-paced, utterly engrossing." (Romance Reviews Today)
"Intense, seamlessly plotted novel of romantic suspense....Ross keeps the heat on right to the last page." (Publishers Weekly)
"Top-notch romantic suspense....Hot in more ways than one." (Kirkus Reviews)
I enjoyed this book. The one thing I found good was the explanation for Gage's wealth. Sometimes the hero is rich and there's no explanation of how he became that way. I found him to be a strong hero, but Tess was not as great as a heroine, hence 4 stars.
If you are interested in a hot romance this might not be a bad book but if you bought it because the description indicates it is about a fire arsen team don't bother reading it. From the moment the two main characters meet, at the crime scene, they are touching each other and making expicit remarks and that is what the whole book is about. Not for someone who is looking for suspense in a book.
This book was full of bad dialogue, predictable characters, and blatant cliches. It was a bad attempt at a "Backdraft" meets "Silence of the Lambs" story. The lead male character was too cliche to be likeable. This tainted the entire story for me. If the characters are believable, I will stick to a story, but this one was really just too horrible.
But, if all you want is steam and no story, you will not be disappointed.
