This was a good read, once you get past the first few chapters. The "firestarter" was not who I thought it was. My jaw dropped when I realized who it was. It did get tiring reading over and over about Annes hand though. I really dislike when authors use that for filling. Once is enough for me. Happy Reading!

I have been reading J.R. Ward since her "Black Dagger Brotherhood" series started... I have enjoyed her other novels that are not Brotherhood novels as well, but this was by far my favorite. It was a fast read, but it was also fun - follow Anne Ashburn as she navigates life with her family and firefighter friends. When an accident forces her out of her firefighting job, she finds the courage to move on with her life, reconnect with her family, and find love.

Non-stop action - a thriller that attracts the reader on physical, psychological and emotional levels about Inspector Anne Ashburn and Danny Maguire. The fact that there is an outstanding unresolved issue might lead to a further novel.

This story shows that life can throw you some curve balls and that you can overcome them. The plot is interesting (arson) and the main characters are real people with their strengths and flaws. I loved the short chapters. Good story, sans plus. I prefer her other series : Black Dagger Brotherhood and The Bourbon Kings
