It's not police lieutenant Wes Kimball's imagination. Cara Hughes, the big-city arson investigator from Atlanta, is hot, hot, hot. She's slender, curvy–and rumored to sleep with a six-inch switchblade under her pillow–and Wes is forced to fight his four-alarm desire from the first moment they meet. Cara seems just as intrigued… . But business is business, and she'll lose control with Wes in bed before she'll give ground in their investigation. Equally passionate about their work, Wes and Cara know their white-hot affair must fizzle eventually. Still, a temporary fling has its merits. And where's the harm when it means both of them get exactly what they want–or do they?
