Juliet Baker is not looking forward to coming home after six months. Yes, the fiery brunette wants to make a go of turning her parents' farmhouse into a B&B. She's just not looking forward to seeing the place where they died. To make things worse, she knows she'll finally have to face her cheating, firefighter ex-boyfriend.
Luckily, her sister has found Jules a boarder. Easy money, right? Not when she realizes the boarder is Captain Shane Gaskill. Not only is Shane a firefighter, he's the town's hot new fire captain.
Jules is determined to hate all firefighters. After all, the men of that precious brotherhood protected her cheating ex. Shane, however, proves he's different from the start. He's protective and kind, and she can't stop looking at his smoking, Viking-hot body. She learns, though, that Shane isn't so willing to love again either. He's been hurt, too. They both fight the sexual chemistry, and resulting tenderness, between them. But when a stalker begins to target Jules, they realize they can't fight their desire forever.
As the threats escalate, Shane and Jules are thrown together. The resulting passion overwhelms them. But are they willing to trust each other and surrender to the flames of love?

Lust/love at first sight, cheating firefighter, death of a wife, sexual chemistry, mysterious creepy notes and arson fires sparking the town makes this a very pleasant read for a nice romance story. This story is bursting with sexual chemistry that I am surprised that the soon to be B&B is not up in flames the instant that Juliet and Shane have their first kiss.
But then you have the ex-boyfriend that doesn't want to take the hint that the relationship that was there is no longer and Juliet does not want to start anything up with someone that slept around during their relationship of two years. Then you have a stalker but it seems that he has a way of going about stalking Juliet that just seemed weird, but then again, what can you expect? They have their own issues.
When things seem to be going great in the casual sex relationship that Juliet and Shane are doing, Juliet realizes that she is not a casual girl and doesn't want to get hurt. Not only that, but Shane has a tough time expressing how he feels and ends up putting his foot in his mouth at different times during their relationship. When he realizes that he does love Juliet, will it be too late to tell her?
UP IN FLAMES was a pleasant read with characters that were interesting. I found myself giggling with Juliet's family; they were something else. It kept my attention especially after figuring early on who was doing the stalking, but I wanted to know the reasons for his actions. The beginning of the story was a little on the corky side but it got your attention because you tried to see where the author was heading in this storyline. The sparks between the two main characters is hot; it seemed that they could not get enough of each other, each time they were alone, they explored each other with great intensity.
This is a delightful read for a nice relaxing afternoon. Even though it's a little on the short side but I enjoyed it. Pick up this book today and get lost in the flames of passion.
