Publisher's Summary

In a stand-alone novella that combines the worlds of The Flame and his novel The Surrender Gate, New York Times best-selling author Christopher Rice returns you to a mysterious candle shop in the New Orleans French Quarter where the scents of passion provide the courage to embrace your heart's desire.

Are some risks worth taking?

Laney Foley is the first woman from her hardworking family to attend college. That's why she can't act on her powerful attraction to one of the gorgeous teaching assistants in her Introduction to Art History course. Getting involved with a man who has control over her final grade is just too risky. But ever since he first laid eyes on her, Michael Brouchard seems to think about little else but the two of them together. And it's become harder for Laney to ignore his intelligence and his charm.

During a walk through the French Quarter, an intoxicating scent that reminds Laney of her not-so-secret admirer draws her into an elegant scented-candle shop. The shop's charming and mysterious owner seems to have stepped out of another time, and he offers Laney a gift that could break down the walls of her fear in a way that can be described only as magic. But will she accept it?

Light this flame at the scene of your greatest passion, and all your desires will be yours....

Lilliane Williams is a radiant, a supernatural being with the power to make your deepest sexual fantasy take shape around you with just a gentle press of her lips to yours. But her gifts came at a price. Decades ago she set foot inside what she thought was an ordinary scented-candle shop in the French Quarter. When she resisted the magical gift offered to her inside, Lilliane was endowed with eternal youth and startling supernatural powers, but the ability to experience and receive romantic love was removed from her forever.

When Lilliane meets a young woman who seems poised to make the same mistake she did years before, she becomes determined to stop her, but that will mean revealing her truth to a stranger. Will Lilliane's story provide Laney with the courage she needs to open her heart to the kind of true love only magic can reveal?

A Beautiful, Haunting & Gorgeous Romance

This was my second 1001 Nights book. The first one I read by Lauren Blakely didn't impress me very much. Kids the Flame more than makes up for it. This book is a work of art, with a story that is intriguing, romantic, erotic and beautiful. It is always interesting to read a man's take in romance books, and this does not disappoint. Many women can't write this well. I loved the paranormal aspect as well. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook. Unlike the listing, this wasn't read as a dual person experience. Paul only read the beginning and ending short passages, while the wonderful Natalie Ross brought the story to life. We need a book just on Lillianne and Bastian!
