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.

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.”

Let me first say adults only! There are a few happenings that are not so nice, so if you are extremely squeamish, read with some caution. Most people should be fine.
This book was hot! It was on fire almost from the beginning. ;-) From the first couple pages till the very last word, I was hooked. The action was fast paced. I kept finding myself in awe and being blown away by the author's creativity and the uniqueness of this book. As you all know, I love to read paranormal / urban fantasy books. If there is a supernatural creature in it, chances are that I've read it or it's on my list to be read. Aflame had lots of surprises to keep me guessing, lots of romance and steam, great characters including a slightly broken heroine with an epic potty mouth and a hero of huge proportions ;-).
I don't want to give any secrets away. So let me just say this is a MUST read for those of you who like your characters heavy on the special, pages laced with adventure and romance, and the books from the paranormal shelf.
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was fantastic and I'll be on the look out for book two. :D
