Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best-Selling Author Christopher Rice Presents His First Work of Erotic Romance.

It Takes Only a Moment...

Cassidy Burke has the best of both worlds - a driven and successful husband and a wild, impulsive best friend. But after a decadent Mardi Gras party, Cassidy finds both men pulling away from her. Did the three of them awaken secret desires during a split second of alcohol-fueled passion? Or is Mardi Gras a time when rules are meant to be broken without consequence? Only one thing is for certain: The chill that's descended over her marriage and her most important friendship will soon turn into a deep freeze if she doesn't do something. And soon.

Light This Flame at the Scene of Your Greatest Passion, and All Your Desires Will Be Yours.

The invitation stares out at her from the window of a French Quarter boutique. The store's owner claims to have no knowledge of the strange candle. But Cassidy can't resist its intoxicating scent or the challenge written across its label in elegant cursive. With the strike of a match and one tiny flame, she will call forth a supernatural being with the ultimate power - the power to unchain the heart, the power to remove the fear that stands between a person and their truest desires.

Beautiful, Steamy Story

Although this was the first book Christopher Rice wrote for romance, it is the second I have read. Put simply the man has a gift with words. What could've been a crass short story is instead a beautiful story of a relationship transforming into something more. It doesn't feel rushed or unhurried, and I enjoyed the paranormal angle. Absolutely gorgeous. I hope we get a novel about Bastian Drake, the mysterious Candlemaker. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook. Natalie Ross' voice was smooth as silk. The male narrator wasn't quite up to the task, just reading the text. Once you've heard Sebastian York, it's hard to hear others. A beautiful, hot, steamy story.
