Stormy Knight is used to the banter between her fellow firefighters and pushing her body to its limits due to her competitive nature and choice of occupation. What she is not used to is being drawn to her captain and the strange way her body is reacting lately. It is almost like she is changing somehow, but the answers seem to slip through her fingers. If she does not unravel what is going on, more may be at stake than she has ever dreamed.

Captain Demetrius Perry has visited his newest firefighter’s dreams and passion that he tries to control— worse than any inferno he has ever encountered— rages within him because of them. With his arch nemesis trying to create problems and time running short, will he be able to help Stormy with a transition that is beyond her comprehension? Or will his chance at happiness escape like smoke drifting away on the breeze after a fire?

With the whole firehouse keeping a secret, Stormy is surrounded by a group of men who would do anything for her but share their hidden agenda. Will she and Demetrius manage to protect their friends and break an ancient curse, or will they burn in the fire that ignites between them?

After an intriguing and spicy start, this story of paranormal firefighters fizzles and reveals itself as more of a campfire than a full out blaze. Although the premise introduced is intriguing, the story had so much going on that it was hard to really connect with the lead characters and care about their relationship. Strong alphas each, the main characters were inventive and with tightening it would have been an exceptional read in this reader’s opinion.
