It was supposed to be a new start, a new life. After an ugly divorce, Meg Devers was ready to move on. She was making a difference in the lives of others, converting the old house she’d scrimped and saved to buy into a shelter. With support from the community, her dream had finally come true. She loved her new life, until she woke up trapped in the attic with the house in flames.
As an arson investigator, Liam Cohen worked for the county, but Monroe felt the most like home. One night, he was called to a routine house fire that turned out to be anything but. Meg Devers set off every protective instinct he had, along with more than a little lust. She was strong, but at the same time, vulnerable as hell. Liam wanted to hold her and keep her safe, but he had to remain professional—at least until he could prove that she didn’t set the fire. But when someone tries to kill Meg a second time, staying professional is the last thing on his mind.
Can Liam clear Meg's name and catch a killer, before the flames consume them both?
