Romance Suspense | Romance Contemporary

Anne Ashburn has spent her life in the shadow of her family. Anne is a good firefighter, however, when your father is a dead hero and your brother is the chief, it's very hard to be anything but the chief's sister. Sister is exactly what her crew calls her and though they respect her, Anne always has to work harder and never stops trying to prove herself.

It also makes relationships difficult, and she does not want to be regarded as just a woman, and sleeping with a member of the team would make that all but impossible. That is why Danny Mcguire is making her life hell. She wants him and once she has him, it's almost impossible to stop... Until the night when they both almost die in a fire and her career as a firefighter is over.

Now Anne must start a new life. As she tries to leave the old one behind, she leaves Danny too. But a new case brings up old memories and they are once again thrown together.

J.R. Ward is best known for her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. She has recently spread her wings with her Bourbon Kings series and now this new Firefighter series. Both her past series fully immerse readers into new worlds, and CONSUMED brings you into the world of firefighters. You find yourself invested in these characters' lives and wanting to learn more about this interesting group of people. CONSUMED has action, adventure, mystery, and romance written in a way only J.R. Ward can accomplish.

SUMMARY

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Anne Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family's scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm.
