Smoke and Embers (Up in Smoke book 2)


Brooke Harris never imagined her rocky marriage would end with her husband’s death. She’s trying to move on, but her husband’s old enemies put her in fear for her life. Her problems escalate when she finds herself attracted to the man responsible for her husband’s death.

Used to the heat and danger of fire, Mike Montana is not prepared for the blaze Brooke ignites in him. He tries to shield his heart, but he’s willing to face any danger to seek justice for her. When her life is threatened, no cost is too high to protect the woman he loves.

In the face of danger, will love endure or will the past destroy it and ruin any chance for a future?

The man in front of her showed more compassion, more interest than her husband ever had. Mike’s touch was comforting and deeply sensual. It forced Brooke to hold back a passion that begged to be ignited. Those feelings scared her. Brooke was stuck between feeling a duty to her dead husband, giving him one more chance, and following her gut instinct by not fighting the urge to open up to Mike.

“None of this is fair. It all needs to stop.”

Mike wiped her face, wetness covering his fingers. “Damn Brooke.”

She looked up at him. “Make it stop, Mike.”

“Shit.” His brow knotted. He trailed a finger over her moist lips.

“Please. Make the hurt go away.”

He closed his eyes for a brief second. Opening them, he stared straight into her soul. “Baby, there is only one way I can make you forget about all of this.” He leaned down and his lips touched hers.

She moaned and leaned into him. “Please.”
