Book summary: A FIERY WOMAN
Some say the fire that killed Rose’s mother was started by superstitious peasants who believed Carmen Giabeti was a witch, but Rose knows the truth. It was her mother’s gift that killed her. The gift Rose shares--the ability to call fire. And sometimes to read the future.
Rose is a creature of impulse, emotion and deep loyalty. She fears her gift and doesn’t use it to tell fortunes as her mother did, relying instead on the income from her small but successful shop. But sometimes her gift gives her no choice. She can’t always control the visions of flames that come to her.
AN ICY MAN
Lord Andrew Harrington is the son of an English Duke and the nephew of a queen. Drew is also a wealthy man in his own right--and too good-looking, some say, for his own good. He did his part to earn his reputation as a playboy during his teens and early twenties, but at thirty-two he’s no longer a wild child.
Drew’s deep reserve isn’t obvious to most people. He’s charming, sexy, and fond of his fellow humans in a pleasantly detached way--rather like a cat, according to his brother. He is scrupulously fair in his dealings with women . . . and, on an emotional level, utterly unreachable. Having grown up with parents who love each other deeply, he’s aware of the lack in him, but is unable to mend it.
Drew certainly doesn’t believe in psychic nonsense. So why can’t he stay away from a woman who claims to be just that? Rose doesn’t seem a likely suspect for the bombing of the Montebello airport--yet she knew about it. she called in the warning that allowed them to clear the airposrt. Drew swears to learn her secrets and discover whether she’s involved with the ones who threaten his roayl family . . . or if the threat she poses is purely personal.
