Rachel Kenley believes in embracing the power of passion and she does so every time she sits and spends time creating stories for the characters who live in her head. The characters in her life include her husband, two sons, her family, and a group of writer friends she would be lost without. She knows how lucky she is to be living the writer's life that has always been her dream.
Lena Crane wants one night with a sexy stranger to help her remember the woman she used to be and forget the serious possibility of losing her company. Something to get her creative and sexual juices going. In the arms of a young artist, she does just that.
Unfortunately, Daniel turns out to be anything but a stranger. Daniel Royer met Lena when he was fifteen and she was twenty-eight. When art became his career, he wanted to share his first gallery opening with the woman who introduced him to the field. He didn't expect the intense night they shared, but now that he's gotten her into his bed, Daniel wants Lena in his life.
Lena isn't interested in getting involved with a younger man, especially during a professional crisis. But a potentially lucrative client loves Daniel's work and Lena must collaborate with him if she wants to save her company. And when their hot fling becomes more, she finds herself fighting for something far more important than her business-her heart.

Lyria may have found a love that runs deeper than the seas, but will it be enough to defeat Fiero and save the Stone of Fate?
"As a fan of gorgeous firefighters, I'm thrilled with Rachel Kenley's smokin' hot hero, Miles Anderson. Passionate Heat is a hot and sensual read, well paced and with characters you'll grow to love. I'll be the first in line to buy the next book in this series!" Elle Amery
A troubled past.
When Miles Anderson left Glenway, he never wanted to see the small town again. Labeled a troublemaker and a no-account because of his parents, he was ready to move on with his life. But he didn't think his decision would mean he'd never see Jillian Wagner again either. After Miles was gone, Jillian turned to the wrong people for support and lost her dreams in the process.
An unexpected return
Now an arson and explosion expert, Miles is asked by an old friend and father figure to come home and help put an end to a suspicious string of fires. He agrees, only to discover more than burned out buildings. Jillian is still there, no longer the dancer she once dreamed of becoming, and newly divorced. As buildings in Glenway continue to burn, Miles cannot help but think Jillian is a target.
A fight for the future
Jillian never expected to see Miles again. She had made peace with her past - mistakes and all - and was ready to move on. With his return, however, comes an abundance of old feelings, starting with anger and swiftly moving to desire and love. Miles never thought he could have a home, but with Jillian in his life again, everything is different.
Because nothing burns hotter than a rekindled love.
