Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match…
Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian—old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She’s just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren’t easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love…
Especially not with a fireman who’s hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire.
Cowboy can’t resist the fiery little librarian, and he’s determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know—if she’d let him. She’ll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he’s found the one fire he can’t control…
Cowboy is a man who loves women, is skilled at picking them up and has the reputation to prove it. But you wouldn’t know this by Anna Weber’s reaction to him. He just can’t seem to wow her with his considerable charm and that’s something that has never happened to him before. The sweet librarian is a challenge he can’t resist and is determined to break down her barriers but he’s in for a tough time because she will test his patience and control in every way possible.
Anna Weber is hiding out in Liberty, Texas just until she can put her plans into action and getting involved with any man, let alone the playboy fireman is the last thing on her list of priorities but Cowboy won’t take no for an answer. Anna has been down this road a few times and knows that it will always end in disappointment so she doesn’t plan to even start anything. In addition, she had a crush on Cowboy when she was younger but he never saw her and she doesn’t want to repeat that experience. But when suspicious fires begin to happen around her and she starts to receive threatening letters, Cowboy is the one person riding to the rescue. But Anna’s hiding something and how will her secrets affect her budding relationship with Cowboy?
Anna is quiet, shy and quite inexperienced but is definitely a match for the worldly and outgoing Cowboy. These two are very different but bring out the best in each other. The banter between them was very funny and Cowboy seemed to love the chase. More than the chase though, he wanted something special like his friends had, but had to contend with his reputation as he tried to convince Anna that he wanted forever with her.
This was a fun and humorous book overall and had me laughing really hard at the antics of the characters, not just Cowboy and Anna but the rest of their posse. I love the way Ms. Bliss portrays the small town and its characters. The mystery and suspense added to my enjoyment of the story. I have just one question: what is Cowboy’s real name?
