Yes, the day is here. Knox and Melanie’s story is going to be read by readers–in a printed book. I want to take the time to thank all my critique partners who helped make “Fire & Ice” the best it could be. Also, I want to thank Vanessa who gave the book the most fabulous cover. I can now smile from ear to ear because my dream came true today.

He’s a hunky fire investigator, she creates ice sculptures—when these two get together things can’t help but sizzle.
Fire investigation is Knox Manning’s passion, that is until he meets the suspect in his latest arson case. The moment he locks eyes with Melanie Sharp’s powder blue gaze his knees buckle—a foreign reaction to the six-foot-two fireman. Thing is, the woman is trouble with a capital “T”. Messing with her could cost him his job and his sanity. That’s what his mind says anyway, too bad his body isn’t listening.
Melanie’s a talent, an up-and-comer in the cultured art world and a woman with a less than stellar past. When one of her promotional fliers is found at the scene of a burned out house, she suddenly finds herself the focus of an arson investigation. One led by a dark-haired man who scares her as much as he thrills her. The house blaze had been set, but not by Melanie. She’s determined to prove that to Knox, who has suddenly become the catalyst of her secret sexual fantasies—igniting an inferno so intense she’s afraid of sustaining third-degree burns.
