Cuddle up by the fire with the irresistible prequel to Kate Meader's smokin' Hot in Chicago series—originally published in the sizzling holiday anthology Baby, It's Cold Outside—a superhot e-novella that will warm you from your head to your heart and all the way to your toes!
Chicago firefighter Beck Rivera always knew his destiny would be defined by two things: his dream to follow in the footsteps of his legendary foster father Sean Dempsey and his teenage passion for heiress Darcy Cochrane, the one girl who could both stoke and cool his fire. Loving her meant setting her free and breaking her heart—and his. But when a chance reunion at his family's bar, sparked by a drunk Santa, places her in his path again, destiny can no longer be denied.
The last thing heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Darcy Cochrane needs is the rollercoaster of emotion stirred up by her first love: sexy, gorgeous man-on-fire Beck Rivera. But he always had such talented hands. And more talented lips. And...maybe one time can't hurt. Then she'll send him packing like he did to her all those years ago. But Darcy and Beck soon discover that nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love...

REKINDLE THE FLAME is the prequel to Flirting with Fire, the first book in the Hot in Chicago series. It does its job, introducing some of the Dempsey siblings and setting of the series.
Darcy Cochrane and Beck Rivera were childhood sweethearts, but Beck turned his back on her after the death of his father and brother, thinking that is the best for her. Heartbroken, Darcy left town and discovered herself. Years later, they meet again, and Beck swore he's never letting her go again...
It's a nice story, and despite its short length, it gave adequate backstory into Beck's and Darcy's pasts, and it also addressed their issues, i.e. the way Beck decided for the two of them years ago without giving Darcy her say.
I read Flirting with Fire first before this novella, and I'd say reading this isn't required to enjoy the first book in the series. Though here, you'd see where and how the Dempsey siblings got their tattoos. I should've thought of it when I was reading Flirting with Fire, but I didn't expend much brainpower to connect the dots. I was just focused on enjoying the story. So, if you haven't read any book in this series yet, I can safely say you can go with Flirting with Fire.
