To claim her love, first he must reconcile his past…and catch a killer.
When firefighter Reyn Erikson returns to the small Louisiana town that branded him a killer, he doesn’t want trouble. He plans to slip in, help his hospitalized grandmother, and slip out again as silent as smoke. Instead he runs into two unintended flashpoints: his grandmother’s plea to find the truth behind his mother’s death. And sexy redhead Olivia Crenshaw.
Olivia has found evidence that her late father, the former sheriff, suspected Reyn’s mother was murdered. The truth is still hiding somewhere in this town, and only Reyn can give his grandmother - and himself - the peace they both deserve.
Since Olivia plans to investigate with or without him, Reyn has little choice. From the start, her tenacity and inner strength earn his respect. Despite her reservations about his priorities, Olivia is irresistibly drawn to the handsome firefighter with a uniform full of medals and a past full of mysteries.
The deeper they dig into the past, the more they uncover dark secrets that threaten their sizzling attraction - and draw a killer out of hiding.
Warning: Contains a hero who doesn’t think he is one, and a heroine who will stop at nothing to make him believe otherwise. Hot fires, hot danger, and even hotter love scenes. Fire extinguisher recommended. Just in case.
