An amusing tale of love, hot firemen, fairies and sexy professors. A modern day adult fairytale.

Aidan is HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Literaly and figuratively. Leanan is one COOL (or tries to be cool) prof. Between the two of them there is plenty of boiling points!

I HIGHLY recommend this tale.
Lady Raven RAVE! / for book lovers and readers.

Aidan is a firefighter investigator for MAST, but nobody is aware that he is also a Fae. Aidan is a hundred year old Fae and is apart of the Salamander clan, a clan that is known for fire. While investigating a string of fires, he meets Laenan, a professor at a University, who is able to help to help him catch the arsonist.


This was a nice paranormal book. If you scroll down some more on this Amazon page, you

This was one of those free downloads from Kindle that you have no really idea of whether you will read it or when. Luckily one of my book club reading groups has a fireman story category and this fit right in.

It is shorter than I would've liked but good for an erotic paranormal romance. I thought there was enough of an attraction and romance built for the sex to be steamy. The story line, although short and not well developed, was enough to make it interesting. I think the story line may be fur

There were some good parts of this story....and there were some really awful parts. I went into this thinking it was a romance but was disappointed to discover it was closer to a raunchy erotic. The romance was completely unconvincing and moved ridiculously fast. I could believe the main characters were in lust, but not in love. Furthermore the language and terminology used in the intimate physical moments came across as trashy and almost laughable. I really wanted to like this story... the plot ...more

A quick Kindle ebook story. As with so many other mythical stories, free or low cost on the Kindle Store, Keira Ramsay gives plenty of space to erotic sexual expression. While the Irish mythology brought forward to 21st Century San Diego is creative, her sexual content is boilerplate, almost word-for-word the same as in Tina Folsom's "A Scent of Greek" and "A Touch of Greek".
