Love her, Love her. Cynthia Edens sequel Deadly Heat actually surpasses book 1 of the deadly series. Lora Spade is a firefighter that knows something isn’t right about the fires starting up in her community. She places a call to a special division in the FBI that deals with serial crimes and Kenton Lake is sent to investigate. Kent's job is to question everyone in order to get to the bottom of the arsons, even if it means investigating Lora and all her coworkers.
Lora is an awesome heroine. She's competent and comfortable in her skin and her role as a firefighter. Unlike other heroines, she has a past that involved other lovers and she doesn’t have the usual hang up about love affairs gone bad. Kent is sexy and loving. Eden deals realistically with Kent and how he deals with bumping in to Lora's old lovers or even the discovery of Lora's past lover dying in one of the fires. This story has action, a good story line and a romantic element that isn’t overshadowed by the suspense element of the book.
Cynthia Eden has proven that she can write romantic suspense as well as she can paranormal. I'm truly hooked on this series and still cheer the day I picked up a Cynthia Eden novel on a whim.
She wants revenge . . .
Six months after her lover died in an arsonist's blaze, firefighter Lora Spade calls in the FBI's elite Serial Services Division to track the elusive killer. When Special Agent Kenton Lake is lured into a violent inferno, Lora pulls him to safety and is stunned - not by the fire, but by her own searing attraction to Kent. For the first time in months, she longs for something other than vengeance.
He wants her . . .
Kenton's interest in Lora should be purely professional. But one fleeting kiss and he can't get her out of his mind. Her combination of strength and vulnerability makes him want to protect her, and that means solving this case - and fast. For even the passion igniting between them can't hide a terrifying truth: Lora is the next target in a murderer's sadistic, fiery game.
A vicious killer wants only . . .
