Lieutenant Craig Faulk is part of a special task force in Chicago known as the CDDC, Chicago Department of Demon Control. He believes in their work and wants his city to stop living in fear. The attacks on humans have escalated over time, leaving Craig to witness more carnage and brutality than most. He isn’t often rattled but discovering that the latest witness is alive shocks the cowboy demon-hunter. Craig then does everything in his power to help Steven Richter.

Steven’s experience with the demon was no nightmare, but his living reality. His tall handsome savior’s image is emblazed in his mind. He’s not sure of why he was able to survive the attack, but one look at Craig has him thanking his lucky stars. Too bad Craig is way out of his league.

Steven and Craig bring sexual heat and suspense to us in Light My Fire. Craig isn’t seeking complications, thanks to his more-than-complicated occupation. The former cowboy is set in his ways and likes order in his personal life. Steven’s painful past and less-than-honorable profession makes him believe he’s not worthy of love or commitment. Steven doesn’t know his own strength or worth, but I’m happy he soon learns the truth. I wasn’t sure if Craig would damage the fragile sliver of self-esteem Steven had hidden within. There were points where I felt he might be a bit callus, but then it became clear that Craig wanted to spare himself from a relationship gone wrong. The feelings Steven had for him wouldn’t allow that to become an issue.

Lee Avalone adds just the right amount of raw sexual energy and paranormal beings to Light My Fire to keep you on the edge of your seat! The settings draw you in and make you apart of the scenes. Buy a copy and hang on for the ride.
