Aflame by Krissy Daniels
To save her soul, he’ll let her burn.
Grayce has been on the run for years. Having escaped an abusive relationship with a violent psychopath, she is trying to rebuild her life one small step at a time. Things are going well until Zander crosses her path, badass and sexy as hell. His presence awakens heated desires she long ago buried. Last thing Grayce wants is a man, and the way her body reacts to Zander scares her more than the threat of being found.
Tyr will do anything to get his little dove back. She is a Beacon, and her raw, burning energy gives him power and strength. More than the evil that already compels him. But a blond giant of a man hovers protectively around her. No matter. He’ll play with him too.
When Zander rescues Grayce from Tyr’s first attempt to reclaim her, he reveals his superhuman abilities. Power that Grayce also has, but has yet to understand. As predestined soul mates, Zander must help Grace control her rage before her fire threatens to destroy everyone and everything in her path. But his true challenge is more than that—to show her it’s possible to trust and love again.
CONTENT WARNING: Hot sex with a foul-mouthed firecracker.
With bare hands splayed across the open wounds, Grayce squeezed her eyes closed and prayed for control. Begged. Pleaded to a God she’d never before acknowledged.
Chelsea needed time to get away.
Grayce prayed for Chelsea, prayed for Zander. Prayed they wouldn’t die because of her.
Her wits slipped away. Raw emotion drove her actions now. Blood covered her arms. Her lips throbbed with the remnants of his kiss. A kiss that felt like goodbye. He couldn’t die. The primal need to protect him overwhelmed her senses.
“Take me,” she implored. “Take me instead.”
Hell’s own fire coursed through her veins. Savage. Brutal. Pissed off.
She would’ve sold her soul at that moment to keep him alive. Zander didn’t deserve this. She did.
Earth and grass swirled and gyrated, turned to ash around her. Her small fingers stretched across his bloodied and shredded skin. Her insides boiled. Her skin bubbled and vibrated with indignant protest.
He said he loved her, now he was dying. Why? What kind of cruel, sadistic joke was this, anyway? Violent trembles overtook her as an earthquake made its way through her body from the inside out.
“I will not let you die.”
Q: Romance readers have a lot of choices these days. What makes Aflame stand out in the crowd?
A: Aflame is dark, sexy and a little bit twisted. The characters have human struggles despite their superhuman abilities. Good vs. Evil. Forgiveness. Free will. Grayce is unlike most romance heroines. Her foul mouth, nuclear temper and fear of men make for a bumpy ride. Zander has the physical power to subdue Grayce, but it’s his patience and big heart that ultimately tames her.
Q: We like to include our favorite quote in our reviews of the books we read. What is your favorite quote from Aflame?
A: My favorite quote from Aflame is:
“So now what?” She surrendered her hands to the air. “Are you expecting me to call a minister? Buy a puffy white dress? ‘Cause let me assure you, I’ll do naked cartwheels through Disneyland before shit like that goes down.”
