Firefighter Yasmine Van Cort is used to saving people and
knows that sometimes, not everyone is rescued. Yet something
about her last fire rescue keeps bothering her. She cannot
forget the anguish of the man who lost his sister and
brother-in-law, the man who is now the guardian of the one
survivor of the horrible fire – an innocent baby. Yasmine
knows getting involved with those you save can be a bad
idea, but she cannot resist checking on him. What she finds
is an unexpected complication that will change her.
Sedeo Parker has lost the last of his family and now has to
care for his infant niece. Distraught at the loss and the
responsibility, he is feeling overwhelmed when the woman who
saved his niece comes by. His mixed emotions of gratitude
and fury she did not save everyone leave him reeling. The
unexpected flash of desire for her only complicates things.
Yasmine knows that with her career, a real relationship is
difficult at best. Add to that a victim of fire, and that
makes it doubly so. Sedeo, after losing everything to fire,
does not know if he can let himself become involved with a
woman who fights the very thing he is afraid of. Together,
they will have to decide if it’s worth it to take a chance
on a wicked burn.
