Pepper has no interest in Grant Chamberlain…until she accidentally wins him at a school auction and finds the mega-hot firefighter impossible to ignore. Find out what happens next in the second playful and sexy ebook romance in the Rosewood series!
Living in the small town of Rosewood, Alabama, hairdresser Pepper Anthony has one rule—never date a Chamberlain. She’s always said, “the only thing worse than being ignored by a Chamberlain is being dumped by one.” But Grant Chamberlain, town fireman, isn’t used to rejection, and Pepper has consistently turned him down since high school. She isn’t intimidated by his family; she’s one of the few who refuses to take their crap.
When Grant volunteers at the charity bachelor auction, to his surprise, Pepper buys him. She hadn’t meant to, but Adelia Chamberlain dropped a cold drink in her lap, sending her leaping into the air at precisely the wrong moment. Suddenly she had a massive bill to the town and Grant at her disposal. Since the money has to come from her “restore the house” fund, she decides to use Grant for manual labor instead of romantic dinners. Grant is happy to help, sweaty and shirtless, because one way or another, he’s going to get Pepper to admit she’s attracted to him. All it takes is a small spark, and soon they’ll be fanning the flames.
“This is a fun-filled and steamy story featuring a hero who’s been crushing on the heroine for years – and who just happens to be a deliciously hot firefighter. If that’s not enough, there are also some laugh-out-loud moments, a dash of witty banter, a long-held family secret finally revealed and a peeping tom mystery. With a diverse cast of three-dimensional characters, Laurence’s latest has all the elements of a great small-town romance.” ~ 4 stars, RT Book Reviews
“Funny and sweet, sexy and charming, Feeding the Fire is a small town romance that is sure to grab your attention and not let go… overall this was a feel-good story that had me smiling and chuckling the whole way through. I tend to gravitate toward small town stories anyway, but this was a very realistically written storyline that had some intriguing subplots and secondary characters. I think the townsfolk drew my attention as much as our protagonists did… Do you like sexy & sassy bantering, hunky firefighters, and HEA’s that are so sweet they bring a tear to your eye? If so, Feeding the Fire is a perfect match for you!” ~ 4 stars, HJ Recommended review, Harlequin Junkie
