Publisher's Summary

CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner fluent in Lingala to infiltrate the organization. 

Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn't like her very much. He doesn't trust her, either, despite the sparks that flare between them, fierce and hot. Still, he accepts the assignment, even though their cover requires Savvy to pose as his mistress.   

They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. A trail of cobalt, gold, and diamonds leads them into the heart of darkness, a jungle in which everyone is desperate to find the mother lode of ore and gems. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money, but Savvy will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.  

Deep in the sultry rain forest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savvy is willing to sacrifice anything - or anyone - to complete her mission. As they near the flash point, Cal will have to save her from the greatest threat of all: herself.

You won't be able to put this one down!

All the books in Rachel Grant's Flashpoint series are terrific. High-stakes, action-packed plots sit alongside a steamy romance and her central characters are always fully-rounded and well fleshed-out. In Firestorm, Sergeant First Class Cassius "Cal" Callahan, and CIA agent Savannah James get their chance to shine; they've been striking sparks off one another since book one (Tinderbox) and I've really been looking forward to their story.

Savvy is tasked with getting information about a Russian-backed would-be dictator who is rumoured to be planning a coup in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and the only way she'll be able to get it is to get herself into an exclusive party being held aboard the yacht belonging to one of his Russian backers. There's no way she'll be able to get an "in" on her own, though, which is where Cal comes in. She wants him to pose as a businessman who deals in stolen artefacts, while she'll go along with him as his sex toy. Cal isn't wild about the idea - he's got his own reasons for being distrustful of the CIA, and although he is strongly attracted to Savvy (and she to him), he doesn't like her methods and her single-minded ruthlessness when it comes to getting the job done.

I won't spoil the plot, which is superbly constructed and executed; the pacing is excellent, the romance is sweet and sexy by turns and the central characters are compelling. The author never fails to impress me with the amount of research that must go into these books, and the scenarios she comes up with are frighteningly realistic!

Narrator Greg Tremblay is, quite simply, one of the best narrators I've ever heard, and his performance here is outstanding. All the characters are clearly differentiated, his female voices are excellent - never too high-pitched - and he gets right into the swing of things, whether it's in an action sequence or one of the more romantic moments.

All the books in this series are must-listens for fans of romantic suspense.

Flashpoint Series

Firestorm was a bit tricky. I have not read and listened to an interracial relationship. Having said that, I could not put this book down either.

It is only fitting to find out what happened between spook Savannah James and weapons expert Cassius Callahan. The first two books already touched on the sparks between them and the way it unravels within the story makes you want to read on. It brings yet another set of issues and troubles to light within the African continent. This was also a gripping book right to the end.

Note to author, I absolutely LOVE your books. You write strong, relevant, enticing books that make me come back for more. I am wondering if we will see a flashpoint 4 book delving deeper into the Monuments Women…..

Mr Tremblay, true to the opinion I formed on you, WELL DONE. You are an excellent narrator. I will definitely look up your other books.

This series was absolutely brilliant to read, listen to.

Military Romance

I enjoyed the previous books in the series Tinderbox and Catalyst, so I was eager to read book three in the series, Firestorm, which did not disappoint, but I prefer the first two books.
Savanna and Class take part in a dangerous covert operación in D.R. of Congo. Their misión is complex and someone may be setting them up. Sparks fly between the two as the danger and suspense builds. There is plenty of action in the well-woven plot, and there are steamy sienes, too.
An enjoyable read. Great narrator.
