Once the flames are ignited . . .

Miranda Ellis is a woman tormented. Plagued since birth by a strange and powerful gift, she has spent her entire life struggling to control her exceptional abilities. Yet one innocent but irreversible mistake has left her family's fortune decimated and forced her to wed London's most nefarious nobleman.

They will burn for eternity . . .

Lord Benjamin Archer is no ordinary man. Doomed to hide his disfigured face behind masks, Archer knows it's selfish to take Miranda as his bride. Yet he can't help being drawn to the flame-haired beauty whose touch sparks a passion he hasn't felt in a lifetime. When Archer is accused of a series of gruesome murders, he gives in to the beastly nature he has fought so hard to hide from the world. But the curse that haunts him cannot be denied. Now, to save his soul, Miranda will enter a world of dark magic and darker intrigue. For only she can see the man hiding behind the mask.
Kristen Callihan has a beautiful writing voice that I felt I was right there throughout the book. Firelight is a nice mix of Paranormal and Historical Romance with a gothic feeling.
Archer is beautiful, fun, sweet and sexy. He had me from his first meeting with Miranda. Then I just wanted him more through out the book. Miri was a spitfire that is not your damsel in distress. She can hold her own with Archer. Archer and Miranda were meant to be together. The love they have for each other is beautiful. They keep secrets from each other, but it is because they are trying to protect each other. They both are trying to find who is killing Archer's friends, while doing this they are also beside each other when the other is in danger and saving each other. The sexual tension between them is hot and sexy. The build of their relationship is beautiful and sweet. It takes a while before they kiss or make love and when they do sparks are flying.
Make sure you have a day of nothing to do when reading Firelight. It is a page turner and everything you have plan for that day will be forgotten. Have a space on your bookshelf because Firelight is a keeper.
Favorites quotes:
"And I'm afraid of wasting my life always being in control," he whispered. "But no matter what direction I take, all roads lead to you." Gently, he rested his forehead to hers once more. "Let me come home, Miri. If only for one night."
Archer's finger grazed hers. "I feel you. As if you were connected to me by an invisible string." He touched his chest. "I feel you here. In my heart."
With the suddenness of a cat leaping upon its prey, he leaned forward and caught up her wrist. "Tread lightly, Miranda Fair." His thumb moved lightly over her fluttering pulse, as she stared with her mouth assuredly hanging open in shock, her heart beating furiously within her breast. "You know, it's never wise to tempt the devil." His gaze lowered to her hand, still locked in his grip, her fingers glistening with pear juice. "Had I not this mask, I should be of a mind to suck that juice right off of your fingers.”
