series and to say I enjoyed this series is an understatement This book was not as intense or as fast paced as the first one but it was just as intriguing and diabolical The suspense aspect of the story kept me guessing and there was heavy focus on the romance and steam Unfortunately, I struggled with the romance between Kenton and Lora and NOT for the reason you may think My issue with this book s romance stems from an assumption I made while reading the first book I liked the interactions between Kenton, and the third book s heroine, Samantha, and had it in my mind that THEY should be paired together And no matter how much I liked Lora, this book s heroine, and felt the connection between her and Kenton, I wasn t able to fully move past my original feelings The funny thing is, I m now finished with the third book and I didn t have a problem with who Samantha was paired with In fact, I loved them together I guess this is one of those weird conundrums Anyway, with all that craziness said, I really enjoy the way Cynthia Eden writes romantic suspense Her plots are intense, her characterizations are superb, and the romance plentiful I highly recommend this series When a small town gets plagued with several unexplained fires where death has been the common link, FBI Special Agent Kenton Lake gets the call He s part of the SSD Serial Services Division where they track serial rapists, killers, and arsonists When he shows up to a scene where his informant is supposedly meeting him, he finds the house in flames but doesn t hesitate to run into the burning building to find him What he doesn t bank on is a firefighter clocking him literally then drag When a small town gets plagued with several unexplained fires where death has been the common link, FBI Special Agent

take long for them to succumb to the draw between them Tensions are high and they find a great way to, say, release pent up anxiety with the case The arsonist.who is the guy He appears to have links

bates him on local news channels the arsonist doesn t like to be baited He will make that Fed pay Whew Great suspense Great sexual chemistry Fair love story I m not a huge fan of the instant I can t live without you stuff Anyways If you re looking for an edge of your seat suspense novel mixed with some sultry hot sex scenes, you ve met your match No need to look further than this book We re given hints to the arsonist but it wasn t until the very end he was revealed and the author does a great job of giving you the ah ha moment when you finally find out and wonder WHY you didn t figure it out sooner It s not quite as creepy as the first book Maybe because it s indirect murder but nonetheless, a great read Looking forward to reading the next installment of the series with Samantha s story

flames.I won t say anycause it would be spoilerish PPPPPThe suspenseIf you grab these books, you have to know you ll really, but really get the suspense part.Sometimes it says the book is romantic erotic suspense, but actually you just get a couple of action scenes and the rest is just sex or dramaHere, the entire book is woven with suspense, there is no reprieve, always something happening, always something that gets you on the edgeSimply amazing The killer s POV isn t as creepy as the one in the first book, but it s still twisted enough to work DHe liked to watch the fire When it danced, it was the most beautiful thing he d ever seen Sensual, like a loverThe romanceIntense, like everything else in the book.It was just like that in the first one, and I m so glad the author is sticking to the same feel throughout it, not getting soppy or mushy where it shouldn t be, and the characters stay consistent with the way they are and should be.Me likey.Kenton That man is amazing, I love the way he thinks, and the fact that he s so honest about everything, and damn, he is uber hot Lora is a perfect mach for him She is full of life, with a temper and she doesn t let anyone boss her around She risks her life every day and isn t afraid to do it She does have one fear though, one that the killer will use to his advantageStill, I kinda wish theirs wasn t an insta love, but oh well DOverallI really enjoyed this one, not as intense and creepy as the first, but still amazing The romance was great and oh my, very, very hot But what I liked best here, and I suspect will be with all the books from this series, is the intense suspense part Not many books have it, and this author does it so brilliantly I know I ll go back to her whenever I want to read something that s just MORE than the usual.So all I can do here is give a HUGE recommendation to every suspense reader out there, and to those of you who like intense books.Well honestly, I DON T like intense books but these are working for me perfectly DHope you give this series a shot and happy reading Good suspense, strong and brave heroine badass.But but buther bf died ONLY 6 months ago Grief needs time

was currently reading down and picked Deadly Heat up.I must say that at the beginning of the story I thought that this was not going to be as good of a read as I thought it was going to be The idea of a serial arsonist was just not grabbing me By page 50 I had changed that thought completely and was totally drawn in by this story and the Characters.I loved the heroine Lora Spade She was a tough, no

thought that this was not going to be as good of a read as I thought it was going to be The idea of a serial arsonist was just not grabbing me By page 50 I had changed that thought completely and was totally drawn in by this story and the Characters.I loved the heroine Lora Spade She was a tough, no hold bars firefighter who would put her life in danger to save others and never stopped trying even when all looked to be lost.The hero Kenton was a super sexy GQ type of Special agent that worked for the SSD Once these two got together the romance heated up like the flames the arsonist was starting.I did have a feeling who the killer really was before it was known in the book but that did not make me like this story any less.Now I too like some of my other friends here at goodreads am impatiently awaiting the release of Deadly Lies I m glad we only have a very small wait Another winner from Cynthia Edenthis is everything I love about Romantic Suspense An intense story, a strong

woman, an even stronger man, and a whodunnit that kept me guessing until the end He liked to watch the fire When it danced, it was the most beautiful thing he d ever seen Sensual, like a lover MY SYNOPSIS Firefighter Lora Spade is no stranger to fireor to loss She s got scars from the flames that left marks on her body and on her heart after losing her lover and fellow firefighter six months ago in a blaze set by a serial arsonist that is still at large.Special Agent Kenton Lake is the FBI agent sent to investigate the arsonist, and he meets Lora when she forces him out of a burning house Kenton is pissed that his witness is still inside the house, and Lora is pissed that he s too cocky to realize when he s in danger Sparks fly from the very beginning, and it only gets hotter between these two The ordeal is obviously very personal for Lorashe s dealt with death often in her profession, but holding her lover in her arms while he dies left a huge scar on her heartand she s not ready to let Kenton in However, she IS ready to let Kenton into her bed These two give in to baser urges very quickly All the while, they are chasing a man who s sick, twisted form of justice seems to culminate in the grisly death of his victimsdeath by burning He picks people that he deems guilty and lets the fire judge them But he enjoys his judgement just a little too much MY THOUGHTS While this story was not quite as intense as the first book, it was a little sexier, in my opinion, Kenton and Lora have mad chemistry and few inhibitions, so there isn t a lot of angsty will we or won t we going on The answer to that was a resounding YES WE WILL And though they fight fires set by someone else, when these two set the fire, they really heat up the place ahahahahaha Cheese factor, yes, I knowI had to I ve been dying to know, he said again, how you taste Oh, hell Her right hand grabbed the back of his head, and she yanked him down toward her.Their mouths met Open Ready Lips kissed Tongues licked And damn Yes, she wanted.The control she d held so tightly began to crack She jerked in her seat, struggling to press against him He took her mouth Tasted her Tormented her And she met him No, she fought him, fought him forThis killer getsandsadistic the longer the story goes on, and although Eden refrains from detailing the brutal deaths, the situation definitely alludes to some pretty grisly scenes, so this is not for the faint of heart But that is a unique element to this series, and one that makes it stand out I d compare it somewhat to Christy Reece s writingshe also has some pretty horrific images left in my head after reading her books But the romance here was a little too quick for my tasteI m not sure exactly the time frame we re talking about here, but I d think less than a couple of weeks, and these two are head over heelsthat s just unbelievable I thin what made the first book work was the second chance love story going on there, and that wasn t the case with Kenton and Lora Still, the epilogue gives me reason to think that some time passes, plus it gives some much needed insight into Hyde, the leader of the SSI team s past I m so hoping that Eden will continue this seriesit truly has a lot of room to grow, a lot of characters that still have a story to tell It seems like she s set up something for Ramirez, so I m hopeful Like a moth to a flame his attraction to fire is as intensely passionate as a lover s kiss So beautiful so deadly Enter the mind of a serial arsonist and a scorching hot love affair in Deadly Heat, the second installment of Cynthia Eden s Deadly series.Lora Spade is not your average woman A seasoned firefighter who has lost too many loved ones to the deadly flames, she is now facing a serial arsonist in her hometown of Charlottesville, VA The arsonist, labeled Phoenix, is a professional Like a moth to a flame his attraction to fire is as intensely passionate as a lover s kiss So beautiful so deadly Enter the mind of a serial arsonist and a scorching hot love affair in Deadly Heat, the second installment of Cynthia Eden s Deadly series.Lora Spade is not your average woman A seasoned firefighter who has lost too many loved ones to the deadly flames, she is now facing a serial arsonist in her hometown of Charlottesville, VA The arsonist, labeled Phoenix, is a professional who plans his victims, his accelerant of choice, and times his strike like a ticking bomb so the firefighters cannot rescue the victim before they are engulfed in the flames When Phoenix hits too close to home by killing Lora s boyfriend and former firefighter, she knows that her small town needs a higher level of assistance in tracking this killer Fueled by vengeance, Lora ignores procedure and asks for help from the FBI s Serial Service Division SSD to profile and capture Phoenix What Lora does not expect on the next fire call is to be rescuing Special Agent Kenton Lake, the investigator sent from SSD Kenton or GQ as Lora initially refers to him is shocked when Lora decks him in order to pull him out of the flames From that moment, their relationship begins to sizzle as they team up to end this killer s fiery game of cat and mouse.Cynthia Eden is a pro at delivering strong and intensely passionate characters as well as a calculating and sadistic killer who keeps you guessing his identity until the very end This action packed thriller had me questioning to what lengths this madman would go to fuel his destruction The chemistry between Lora and Kenton is an equal driving force in the storyline It is a raw, instant attraction of two strong personalities that is nothing short of magnetic Lora radiates energy and strength and Kenton is blown away by her As the reader, I love it when a hero becomes so flustered by a woman he does not know what to do with himself to the point of questioning his sanity This sets up some extremely steamy moments once both give in to their attraction to each other It also fuels Kenton s alpha male instincts once Phoenix turns on Lora and makes her a personal target Needless to say, with two bold characters there are bound to be tense moments, on the job and in the bedroom This is a couple that can go from zero to sixty in one kiss and loose all self control which provided some scorching hot love scenes and had me needing a cold shower I also love that Ms Eden incorporates the characters from the prior book into the current storyline Readers who enjoyed Luke and Monica from Deadly Fear will be happy to haveinteraction with both as they assist in tracking the arsonist We also get a glimpse of how their personal relationship has progressed which was a total win for me given Luke is all kinds of hot as well Anyone who enjoys romantic suspense that will take your blood past the boiling point must check out Deadly Heat It is one intense flame that will keeping you sizzling until the next installment.4.5 5 starsFavorite Quote I want you naked His words, but they could have been hers I want you alone, he whispered as his lips hovered just above her mouth I want you spread out on the bed And I want to make a fucking feast of you
