I'm delighted to welcome a new author. She's Nikki Dee Houston, with a sizzling new erotic romance, All Fired Up. It's published today (November 1st). Now, the story centres on the relationship between the two main characters - Firefighter Cindy Reece and Fire Captain Dave Johnson, who has featured in a certain calendar...
He's hot and macho, and she's a woman determined to make it in a man's world. So what is it that draws these two very different characters together? Well, as Nikki Dee says:
It’s all about chemistry.
What’s going on with Cindy?
Cindy is captivated by the bright green eyes peering out at her from the male firefighter calendar laying in the mess on the table. She picks it up to take a better look—then she sees the body. Her heart races, her loins flicker. She just has to study the gorgeous torso properly. While she’s ogling it, she gets caught out by some red-necked, red haired, loud mouth. Heck, she might as well have a trickle of drool running down her chin, for the way he’s carrying on. She’s annoyed and embarrassed by her reaction.
But it gets worse. She spins around to see the real life version of the pinup standing behind her. And – it turns out he’s her new boss!
Great start! Heat creeps up her face. She better take care that she keeps her hankering for hot fire fighters in check.
What’s Dave thinking?
Captain Dave Johnson has been mentally preparing for the new rookie’s arrival at Hillwood. He never wanted any female fire fighters at his station. Not because he doesn’t think they’re as good at their job as a man, but because of the distractions it would cause to his men. OK, so he admits that it would be a big distraction to him too.
His job is everything. That’s why he’s still single. No woman could ever understand the utter devotion he has to doing his job well. Unless, perhaps, that woman is a firefighter herself.
He’s about to enter the room when he hears Warner mention his name: “Ah, it’s Dave—Mr. April himself.”
The first thing he sees when he walks into the day room is a distinctly female ass clothed in dark blue drill work trousers. The horizontal indentation across the back of the tight white T-shirt confirms his suspicion. This is the new female fire fighter.
A spark of anxiety courses through him. Trust Warner to act like an ignorant fool right now! Trouble in the camp already!
When the rookie turns to face him, his peripheral vision acts on auto-pilot, and scans the fullness of the breasts contained in her T-shirt. His groin tingles. He forces himself to look into her eyes. Her face is pink, and red blotches mottle the delicate skin of her throat. She’s blushing? Already? Oh great!
He forces a friendly, welcoming smile to his lips.
OK, are you ready for the blurb?
Fires aren’t all that’s sizzling at Hillwood Station…
Cindy always wanted to be a fire fighter. When she tops the class in the rookie academy, she takes her first job at the small but busy Hillwood Fire Station—as their first female firefighter. Some of the crew don’t appreciate a woman trying to do a man’s job. But when the crew risks their lives in a series of factory fires, Cindy’s determined to not just keep up, but to excel.
But the fires aren’t the only thing smoldering at Hillwood. When Cindy comes face-to-face with the real-life, fireman-calendar pinup, she’s left feeling shaky and gasping for breath. Their attraction is white-hot, the sex is sizzling, and there’s no such thing as enough when it comes to their lovemaking. But things turn nasty when a dark past comes back to haunt Cindy, jeopardizing her career before it’s even really begun…
