About Burn Me
After her twin brother dies in a house fire, firefighter Katrina Hale is determined to prove she’s stronger than the flames. But while her focus on her career leaves little room in her life for romance and her current relationship fizzles, she soon discovers fighting fires is nothing compared to the scorching desire she feels in fellow firefighter Greyson Neal's arms. Firefighter Greyson Neal is the type of guy girls dream about when they want their knight in shining armor to wear bunker gear. But he’s not interested in fulfilling every girl’s fantasies. Now he wants the one woman he can never have, and she seems hell-bent on getting herself killed to prove that she’s worthy of her job. Kat must choose between her career and her heart, and fight to keep them both when an arsonist threatens to take it all away

New Year, New News

Let's kick 2014 off with a bang by unveiling the all new blog design. Ta da! Don't adjust your screen, this is the new and improved website. Needing a layout that would incorporate several different genres, I couldn't decide on just one, so I put the various looks into a slider and kept the rest of the site neutral. What do you think?

Next up, in keeping with the A TOUCH OF DARKNESS release in October, Yelena and I have two more events.
