Publisher's Summary

London, 1881

Once the flames are ignited...

Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.

They will burn for eternity...

Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.

Really really great story!

I loved this story! The performance was wonderful! This is a great love story... not the typical romance.

Awesome Romance Story with a Hint of Magic...

This is an awesome romance story with a bit of magic thrown in. I love historical romance novels but sometimes it gets boring. This book, however, is not boring and throwing the magic into the story keeps the listener hooked and then becomes a fantasy/historical/romance story! The love story is not typical or boring and it keeps you entralled to finish it all at once. I hated to pause this story in because it was so good. The narrator is good as well. Overall a must add to your library. Can't wait to hear the next book.

Not my usual genre...but

I am probably one of the few romance lovers that avoid all the vampire, werewolve, etc. books. I like the steamy love scenes in those books, but I find there often seems to be a hint (or more!) of violence and some out and out S&M. I am not a fan of S&M, so I avoid them.

The first love scene between the two protagonists made me think this was going to be another S&M, but it wasn't. It was a great love story!

If you like kind of hoaky "beauty and the beast" books with strong female protagonists (which I do) you will enjoy this book. I will read more books by this author!

The narrator was absolutely wonderful. I have listened to other books narrated by Ms.Quirk, and she always manages to make me forget she is doing all the voices, each character has his/her own voice and personality. Spot on!

Great narration, engaging story

What made the experience of listening to Firelight the most enjoyable?

The story itself is pretty engaging. I really liked Miranda and Archer. The mystery around Archer lasted until the very end, and normally I'd love that in a series, but it turns out that the other books in this series follow Miranda's sisters, not Miranda and Archer, so I feel like this book built up a huge story that will never be told.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Firelight?

When Miranda finally sees Archer unmasked.

What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Moira Quirk is one of my very favorite narrators. I bought this title just because she was narrating it, and she didn't disappoint. I love the sound of her voice.
