“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
For Dr. Katy Garrity, life is a whirlwind, and the New York Fire Department is the heart of the storm. After claiming so many people she loved, including her own husband, Katy is left adrift, trying to keep up with a busy career, a baby son, and her loving extended family.
Her only anchor is Jesse O’Neil, her late husband’s best friend. The charming former playboy has put his entire life on hold to care for Katy and her son. It’s inevitable that sparks will flare between them, but all of life seems to be conspiring to keep them apart. Especially Katy’s own heart, which shies away from trusting another firefighter.
Will the flames of passion burst into a lifetime of love? Or will secrets burn away their connection, causing Dr. Garrity to be burned again?

My thoughts 🙂
After reading Love is a Fire I couldn’t wait to find out what Lyssa Layne had in store for Dr. Katy Malone.
Katy’s life hasn’t ever been easy, but she’s tough and knows how to persevere no matter what. That doesn’t mean that she isn’t vulnerable and in need of a solid shoulder to lean on from time to time.
Enter Jesse O’Neil, my favorite firefighter and the man Katy has learned to rely on throughout the heartache of losing her husband and raising her son alone.
Burst Into Flame is my favorite book in this series so far. Not just because Jesse was freaking hot, but because I loved how much the characters continued to reveal themselves in ways we weren’t able to get to know them before. Also,I genuinely enjoyed watching new relationships sprout, as well as see old ones develop into the kind of bonds you know in your heart will last a lifetime.
Burst Into Flame sucked me in from the start and wouldn’t let me go until I’d devoured every last page! Can’t wait to read what Lyssa Layne comes up with next!!

“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn your house down, you can never tell.” -Joan Crawford
Dr. Katy Malone has sworn off love after losing those she loves most in her life including her father, a member of the FDNY. She has decided to spend her time focusing on her medical research. Her ex-fiancée, and fellow doctor, isn’t ready to give up on loving her though.
Firefighter Nick Garrity is on a search for the future Mrs. Garrity. As he pushes thirty, with no prospects in sight, he’s afraid he’ll never find her. A devoted member of FDNY, he loves the thrill of his job and the satisfaction it brings him. He strives to teach the proby firefighter, Patrick Doyle, the ropes and pass on his passion to him.
When Doyle tries to impress the guys on the crew, he ends up in the care of Dr. Katy Malone. One look at Dr. Malone and Nick knows he’s found his future wife but can he convince her to love again?
