Title: Deadly Heat
Book 2 of the Deadly Series
Author: Cythia Eden
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Received copy from publisher to review.
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.
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.
Lora Spade is a firefighter that takes her duty very seriously. After realizing that others do not take her concerns an arsonist setting fires in their area, she calls a special division of the FBI that tracks serial killers in the hopes that they can catch the person responsible for claiming the lives of many people that included her boyfriend. Special Agent Kenton Lake is assigned to the case to investigate and realizes right away that there is something definitely going on after he is pulled from a fire by Lora. They are intrigued by each other right away and have to team up in order to catch the person starting the fires.
I thought I could feel the heat from the fire as I was reading the story. But that wasn't the heat from the fire at all! It was the heat from Kenton and Lora! Holy moly were these too hot for each other! Their scenes together were very intense right from the beginning and you could feel their attraction to one another. This attraction led to some very hot, smoking, sex scenes that were very enjoyable. Kenton said some things to Lora that had me absolutely swooning! Here are a few examples:
"We work the case each day, and we see just how hot we can make the nights."Oh yeah, I enjoyed Kent very much. I also enjoyed their team work in trying to solve this case. They had to learn to trust each other and realized that they both had something to bring to the team.
"I'll make you scream." he promised. "I'll make damn sure you're satisfied, every time."
"I want you..." he told her. "More than I've ever wanted anyone."
I have to say that the villain in this book creeped me out! Cynthia Eden did a great job and making me think as if I was in his mind! I found myself reading the book faster in the hopes that Kenton and Lora found this guy. He really bothered me. *shivers* LOL!
I'm giving Deadly Heat 3.75 Bells!
I'm still new to the suspense genre of romance and find myself liking it. I've read books in Cynthia's other series and have to say that I enjoy her voice. I'm curious to see what will happen in book 3 of the series Deadly Lies. Speaking of Deadly Lies...
The 3nd book in the series, Deadly Lies, will be released on 3/1/11. Here is what it is about:
Deadly Lies FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn't fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger. One night isn't enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable-until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn't who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of bloodthirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.
