She’s loved him forever but will he overcome his guilt for loving her…
Lieutenant Tess DeMarco has struggled through prejudice against women, a messy divorce and years of training to get what she wants out of life. And the Sisters of Fire have stood by her throughout it all. Another constant in her life is her mentor and friend, David Ashford. She loves him deeply, but keeps her feelings secret, even from herself.
Captain David Ashford, the head of the arson squad, is acutely wounded by the loss of his wife. Tess suffers with him through her long illness, her death and the immediate aftermath. At the same time, he suffers intense guilt over wanting Tess.
Devoted to their arson investigator jobs, they work current cases and tension builds between them. Then an arsonist goes after them. David’s always taken care of her but now he’s obsessive about her safety.
Amidst this danger, can they stop the arsonist before he harms them? And can David accept a relationship with Tess, or will he stand by and watch her find someone else to love?
