Feeding the Fire

Pepper Anthony has always lived by one simple rule—never date a Chamberlain. The family practically owns the tiny southern town of Rosewood, but she’s not impressed or intimidate by them. At least outwardly. But Grant Chamberlain, town fireman and bad boy, isn’t used to rejection. Pepper has turned him down since high school, turning her into the woman he’s determined to have. It’s taken some time, but Grant is determined to finally win over the feisty red-headed hairdresser.

When Grant volunteers at the charity bachelor auction, he never expects Pepper to buy him. She hadn’t meant to, but a stray drink in her lap left her with a huge bill to the town and Grant at her disposal. Since she has to rob her home renovation budget to pay for Grand, she decides to use him for manual labor instead of a Valentine’s Day date. Grant is all too happy to fix up her new house, knowing that he’s even harder to resist when he’s sweaty and shirtless. Pepper can try to keep the hunky fireman at a distance, but the renovations, a town peeper, and a misunderstanding with pepper spray are all working against her to feed the fire.

“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
