See Review for #1 & #2 here.The moment her eyes locked on Colt Nightshade, she knew he was trouble. But Lieutenant Althea Grayson prided herself on being in control, and she wouldn't let her new partner ruin that. The man was a renegade, no respect for rules—and the worst part was he got to her. The way he challenged Althea's thinking, stared right into her eyes…and held her in his arms. What defense could her heart have when Nightshade didn't play fair?
Arson investigator Ryan Piasecki was a man who got the job done no matter what the obstacle…or how beautiful she was. Ambitious executive Natalie Fletcher's new business was going up in smoke, literally, and she needed Ryan's help to catch the arsonist. But if he wasn't careful, the sparks flying between him and this hothouse rose would erupt into a five-alarm blaze—and they'd both be engulfed by the Night Smoke.
I'm not a huge fan of this series & had these been some of the first Nora Roberts books I had read, I may not be a huge fan of her either. Her story telling has come a very long way. These are some of her earlier works and while entertaining, far from her best. They're very predictable and repetitive of each other. Boy meets girl, girl and boy fall in love, girl & or boy pushes the other away, something life changing happens, they get married and have babies. Wash & repeat.
