Publisher Description

“Romance, heartbreak, a small amount of steamy, and lots of gritty, determined story.”—Reader review

She’s secretly burned for him for years.

Derek Severson left his career as a firefighter after tragedy shook him to his soul. 

Running his uncle’s beachside bar on a south Texas island gives him the chance to heal, find peace, and avoid entanglements. That is, until Macey, his childhood friend, tracks him down.

After two years abroad in a developing country, Macey Locke is ready to dive in to her Peace Corps-inspired foundation. But when she learns Derek is suffering, she can’t turn her back. Six weeks on a tropical island to help the guy she’s loved for years? No-brainer. 

Derek can’t help but notice she’s not the same girl he used to know.

She’s more. 

More self-assured, more determined, more irresistible.

But is she enough for him to let go of his newfound fragile peace and give in to the passion sparking between them?

Playing with Fire is a stand-alone novel with a heartwarming and satisfying HEA in the Island Fire series.

Playing with fire

This was a good story about Derek overcoming a broken heart after a loss. Macey has been a friend since they were five years old and has always loved him. The story was full of emotion and made you feel what the characters were going through.
