3 stars for mid-line contemporary romance from the Blaze series. It's a Harlequin, so it's very formulaic, and it's a Blaze, so the heat level is jalapeno.

A British ex-pat erotica author with a tepid sex life books herself a torrid Vegas vacation to get some hands-on experience and inspiration for her next novel. What she ends up finding is a New Mexico fire marshall assisting in the murder investigation of one of the Vegas resort guests. Their romance is clichéd but sweet. I particularly liked

Honestly, it's a Blaze title, it is exactly what I was looking for when selecting one of these books. Short, sweet romance, and lots of sexy scenes. If you're looking for a more sophisticated story a Blaze isn't it, but these sure are fun for a couple hour read.

this is petty but her name, Misty Fortune, really bothered me

After all the LI Romances, and authors like Kristan Higgins and Holly Jacobs....I found this (Harlequin), which I used to read all the time pretty cheesy.
