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...

Continuing my Cynthia Eden binge, Deadly Heat is the story of Kenton Lake and Lora Spade. Lora has a serial arsonist in her area, but her arson investigator isn’t getting anywhere so she calls in the big guns. The SSD.


Kenton is meeting with an informant when the building goes up in flames. The firefighter who drags him out of the burning building is Lora Spade.


The two of them are hitting sparks off of each other from the moment she slugs him in the jaw and drags him out of the burning building. Their lust burns hot and fast, and neither one of them is prepared for it.


Lora is a take no nonsense from anyone kind of person and she is awesome. I loved that she was tough and strong, and she knew her stuff. Plus how often do we get a female firefighter for the heroine? I loved it!


She and Kenton can’t keep their hands off of each other, and it throws off Kenton’s objectivity. How can he look for a killer when he can’t keep his mind off Lora? But when Kenton connects the dots and realizes that Lora is the target of their killer, he can’t let her go.


While they’re burning up the sheets, someone out there is burning down houses…with people trapped in them.
