AGAINST THE FIRE
The Raines of Wind Canyon
Rating: 3 Cups
Mattie Baker spends her days working and her evenings volunteering at the local Family Abuse Center. One of the kids she has worked closely with is really making an effort to change his life. When he is accused of arson, Mattie leaps to his rescue, bumping into the sexy and strong Gabriel Raines. Will he help her clear the struggling youth’s record or will he awaken passions she didn’t know she had?
Gabe is a hard working developer who has no clue who hates him enough to torch the places he has worked so hard on. But when Mattie walks into his life full of life and compassion, he finds himself drawn to her. Her desire to help him find the arsonist and stop the decimation of his life further awakens his growing feelings for her. Will he be able to stop a fire bug and still win the love of the woman who is creating feelings he wasn’t expecting?
Together they fight a monster who works under cover of darkness to wreak destruction. If they unite, they may stop him before more people get hurt. If they don’t, will one of them be at risk? Can Gabe protect the woman he is growing to love?
A suspenseful ride into a story that burns as bright as the fires that are described, Against The Fire takes us on a journey of edge of your seat thrills and chills. By incorporating an outside cast, Martin makes us really feel for her compelling and compassionate characters. With issues like Mattie’s fear of commitment and feelings of sexual inadequacy making it more realistic, this tale will have you believing in these characters and hoping they solve the mystery before it is too late.
