Air, fire, earth … there’s a whole lot of shaking going on.
Erich’s earthquaking emotions and fiery temper were enough to get him kicked out of his clan. The folks in Strange Hollow don’t seem to care he’s not a proper firekin, and once he meets Sarya, he figures he just might be home. From the moment he spots the red-hot air Fae, Erich can’t wait to find out if the woman who looks like an angel has a devilish side.
Sarya’s calm but lonely existence in the Hollow is shaken to cataclysmic levels with Erich’s arrival. Not only does the earth move for Sarya when she’s with him, but her fire burns out of control. The sinful cowboy pushes all of her buttons and strokes her wings just right. She falls for the drawl, and not a thing can deter her from growing a little more in love with him as the days pass.
Problem is: something is suddenly threatening the forest and all signs point to Erich.
Fired Up is a paranormal romance story that revolves around two romantic characters that are new to the small town of Strange Hollow. In the community, many of the council and townsfolk hold destructive powers. When news breaks that someone was threatening the forest with unauthorized construction, everyone blames the newcomers.
Erich, a fireling who was kicked out of his clan, ends up in Strange Hollow. With his uncontrollable fire powers, the town matriarch appoints him as the Fire Chief. Sarya, a Sylph who loves dancing naked in the forest has a unique ability. She fled from the council of Air Fae before they could remove her and stumbles into Strange Hollow. While they don’t belong with their own people, together they are well-suited for each other.
From the moment Erich and Sarya met, you can sense their chemistry and attraction. His touch ignites a burning need inside of her and makes her knees weak. Their sexual tension builds up as the story progresses, and the plot leaves something to be desired. Though the story started out slow for me, it eventually picked up and held my interest until the end.
The main characters absolutely sizzle when they’re together, both playfully and sexually. The plot was entertaining and has moments of actions and steamy erotic sex scenes that deserve heat rating of three. Overall, it was an enjoyable reading.
