In an attempt to seduce a younger firefighter, a sexy widow gets a lesson in burning desires by the firefighter’s badass partner.
Widow Lola Engel owns the only fancy shoe store in Hellfire, Texas, but selling shoes to housewives can be a tad boring. To add a little spice to her life, she sets her sights on the young Chance Grayson, a firefighter she’d like to light up her sheets. Only when she sets the stage for a sexy rescue, Grayson’s partner takes the call.
Daniel Flannigan doesn’t have the patience to play games. He’s a serious firefighter and he has a problem with trumped up calls that take time and effort away from real emergencies. When a particularly sexy widow cries wolf once too often, he takes the call with the intention of teaching the woman a valuable lesson.
In the end, they might both be schooled when the heat rises, igniting a flame neither expected to burn.
Note: This is a SHORT story of 9800 words, a prequel to Playing with Fire where Lola and Daniel get their full story.
