I love Jennifer’s writing style I really, really do and while I really liked Dante’s Fire, I’m not going to lie I had some issues with the storyline *sigh* It may just be me projecting my own insecurities onto the characters but there were aspects especially close to the end that I would really like to see altered. It may make me a selfish bitch with the context of these issues but you know what, I DON’T CARE.

In true superhero style, Dante has a dual identity – Daniel the mailroom clerk by day,

It's time to meet a new kind of hero...

"Her gut screamed there was something so much deeper hidden within his piercing eyes...And then there was that scar. A chill skitted down her spine. She'd never asked what had happened to him, and he'd never offered. Most people averted their gaze pointedly - the jagged, deadly gash marked so deeply into his olive skin you could almost imagine the slice of the blade. Still, she believed it only added to his good looks. With his long dark hair that brushed h

3.5 Stars - ARC Review

This book feels like a labor of love. How do I know? There is a genuine care in the writing. The characters are infused with warmth and love that emanates from the them to the reader.

The story itself is a bit unusual with a Bruce Wayne type character possessing a unique superhero skill. It is a gift not only of strength and paranormal ability, but also of empathy. Truly, creating this character must have been an inspiration from the heart.

Within this crime-fighting context

Which superhero stands out to you? Spiderman? Wonder Woman? Batman? Thor? What if the superhero brought pain to people that harmed women in the worst way possible? In Dante’s Fire, that’s exactly what happens with Dante. He has been given a gift that honestly, I wish was real. Dante has been given the gift of fire. Each time a man or men abuse women he marks them, and they are never able to harm another women. To me I think this superpower kicks ass.

Are we ready for a new kind of hero?

Left alone after the death of his parents, Dante is left to a life of a loner. " The women he involved himself with were alway brief companions meant to ease his isolation, with no expectations on either side. He had connected physically with many, intellectually with a few, and emotionally with none. Until Selina... "

The attraction of course is mutual. Selina realizes he is not just what he seems. There is something more to this man that intrigues and draws h

Mesmerized! Once I started reading I could not put this book down until the last page. Absolutely awesome, beautifully written and a must read for everyone! Selina and Dante (Daniel) are a powerful couple. Dante lives with a dark secret by night and works as a mail clerk by day in a company he owns by no one knows the truth except his best friend, Chase who runs it for him. Dante feels that he is destined to be alone, Selina works for Dante's company and is friends with him. She is ambitious and ...more

Jennifer Probst released a paranormal? Say what?!? I really enjoyed this book. It's a quick read. I usually consider her books beach reads. This one is a little bit darker than that. Though this is NOT a dark book. Dante really is a new kind of hero. I haven't read about one like him. This is the story of two people who have yet to truly find their place in the world. They both are successful, strong characters. Yet they lack in emotional connections to others. They have fantastic chemistry. The ...more

Dante’s Fire by Jennifer Probst is probably one of the best superhero stories I have read in a while. Jennifer Probst has the ability to take a genre and make it her own whether it just Contemporary or Paranormal she stands out. Trust her when she says a new kind of hero, Dante is the best kind of hero. I already love Jennifer’s writing style and the bits of humor she instills in her stories the touching moments between the main characters that stand out in your mind and it all makes for a memor ...more

Another great story from Jennifer Probst! This novella was extremely fast-paced, sexy, and intriguing! When I heard that Ms. Probst had written a paranormal story, I was really excited to learn what it was all about. Dante's Fire was creative, unique, and refreshing! We get a new concept to paranormal adult romance; the sexy superhero!!!

Before you start this book the synopses states "a new kind of hero", let me just tell you that is exactly what Daniel is. He is a modern day superhero who puts together broken and damaged women who have been the victims of abuse, and and all minds. I won't spoil it for you on what he does to terrible men who hurt others to make them selves feel bigger. Let's just say it burns like hell * snickers*.

If you say "Jennifer Probst" I'll drop what I'm doing and come running. That's how much I love her books. Unfortunately, Dante's Fire didn't quite connect for me. I liked the idea behind a modern day hero with special "powers" that connect him with the victims he saves and marks the villains who harm. I even really enjoyed our Hero and heroine, Dante and Selina. But I wanted more...yes I fully am aware this was a novella but aside from the back story of when Dante's power developed, I wanted mor ...more

Secrets Revealed

Dante's fire is the first book in a new series by Jennifer Probst. I know, I know, I was also surprised when I found out that a book which I thought was stand alone is actually the first book in a series. Two more books are coming up. At least the main characters will be different.

The book didn't offer me anything special and I thought the story had some rushed parts. I found weird that Dan was in love with Selina for two years and

I really enjoyed this novella. It was a take on a modern day superhero of sorts. Dante has a gift that allows him to mark men who attack women and then helps to heal the women from the attack. He sometimes feels that it is more of a curse. He feels that he has to live his life alone because most women don't understand why he just disappears when he is called to help a women who is in trouble.

Selina Rogers is different. He feels the connection with her right away but does not act on it. Instead h

AWESOME read. A story of doubt and trust.

When I first received this ARC I thought Paranormal?? Jennifer Probst hmmmm.... As I trust & love her writing, I read Dante's Fire - SO GLAD I DID - its FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!

Dante's Fire SIZZLES because its so HOT. I could not put it down!

Dante is the ultimate hero, he has strengths and weaknesses. He sacrifices and protects on all levels. After Selina is attacked, her "safe world" crumbles. Dante/Daniel helps Selina pick up the pieces,find her way

Dante’s Fire, I believe, is the first book I have read by Jennifer Probst. It’s a shorter book (85 pages) making it a good way to get a little taste of Jennifer’s work.

Dante has this secret, a legacy that he received from his father. It keeps him, while not living in the shadows, not fully making a name for himself, so he can continue on with his work.

Selina is a workaholic who is making a name for herself. She wants nothing more than to succeed at her job after working so hard to get where she

Selina Rogers has worked her tail off and it’s about to pay off with a nice fat promotion at Inferno Enterprises. However, just before she closes a big deal she suffers an attack that throws her off her game. Saved by a masked stranger who helps her deal with the aftermath of nightmares and panic attacks, her self-confidence takes a hit and she’s suddenly questioning herself.

Dante's a different kind of hero and I sort of like him.

His power is indeed different; to protect women and comfort them, but somehow reminds me of Ghost Rider without the skull and the motorcycle. I guess it's because Dante's element is also fire. I don't know if this book is Jen Probst's early books or not but I really think her writing is a bit weak. I don't see her signature style and yes, I so can mistake this as someone else's writing. It's good, the writing, but somehow not as.. Strong a

A new genre for one of my favorite authors--and a hero of a whole different kind. Not only does Dante mysteriously arrive in a time of need, rescuing a female from her attackers, but marks the villains in a way that unables them from harming a female again. Then he stays, watching over them, helping them to heal and trust again. This is an emotional story of pain and healing for both the hero and heroine, cloaked identities and love. And oh, the love! Scorching hot.

I have enjoyed quite a few of Jennifer Probst's books. She's a fabulous author. I just think that maybe she should stay away from PNR or maybe this is her first attempt and she should give it another try.

Whatever the problem is, I just could not for the life of me finish this book. I actually liked the first quarter of it but after that, I lost interest.

I was really bummed out cuz I was excited about this story.

He thinks he's evil but what he does is amazing no matter if he can save them all or not!! I'm totally in love!! Ready for Saga and Chase's story!!!

What a fun departure from Jennifer Probst's standard fare. This is a wonderfully sweet romance with a twist of light paranormal. Dante is a superhero with a huge heart and has a strong desire to have more in his life. The objection of his desire, Selena Rodgers, has no idea who or what he is but is drawn to him. When circumstances bring Selena and Dante's superhero persona together, both their lives are changed forever.

This is a wonderful story that I recommend to everyone.

the story isn't great or original, there were many points that I found not logical or even passable.
the end was pretty forced.
However, I did like the writing style.
the characters were sweet and loving and I enjoyed that.
I think I will give the series another try when the next part is published.

A heartfelt and sexy romance! I loved Dante and Selina's story. Both are strong and intelligent but are vulnerable from their past. Their chemistry jumped off the page and I loved how they learned how to open their hearts to love. I am excited that there will be more stories in this series!
