He knows exactly how to make her burn…
Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt.
Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.
Message from Lauren:
I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hot firemen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past the fire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Which might explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all ogling and firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are also brave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FOR HIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departments around the country do — both in responding to emergencies and in helping their communities. And because firefighters have given me so much inspiration, I wanted to be able to give back with this book.
That’s why I will be donating half of all my proceeds from the preorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFC Firefighter Support Fund that supports the nation’s volunteer fire and EMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference and help support the men and women who serve our local communities and come through for us when we need them most!
NOTE: 50% of all preorders and release week sales will be donated by the author to the National Volunteer Firefighter Support Fund.
And don’t miss the novella in the Fighting Fire Series, BURN FOR ME!

But there are some serious hot sparks flying between them leading to one hell of a five alarm fire and all rules are broken.
When real life hits them in face and they have figure out how to stay away from each other…can these two magnets really avoid the attraction??
“Tell me something. Do you want me to spread you out on the bed? Take you on all fours? Bend you over? Or do you want to throw me down on the bed, climb on top of me and ride me into oblivion?”
She held up one finger. “I’ll take one ticket on the ride to oblivion, please.”
Well you gotta read to find out but as you can see from the quote above it will be one hard fought fight 😉 Let me warn you to have some cold towels and ice water nearby because the heat and attraction between these two is palpable.
The Fighting Series is another great one by the supremely talented Lauren Blakely that I cannot wait to continue. She had me at Julia and Clay and will keep me with the Fighting Fire Series.
She moaned as he spread his fingers across the soft flesh of her belly. Shivering under his touch, her back bowed and her hips jutted out.
It was an invitation, one he was damn sure he had no choice but to RSVP to. He ran his fingertips along her skin, tracing her belly button, her hips, the edge of the waistband of her shorts. He dipped his head to her neck and licked a path up her neck, her skin so hot. “I want you so much. More than I should. More than I’m supposed to. But I just don’t care because right now I want to hear the sweet, sexy sounds you make when I touch you,” he said, his voice gravelly.
“I can’t stop, either. So don’t you dare,” she said. She grappled at his shirt, her hands frantic as she pulled and tugged at his clothes, as if she couldn’t get him near enough. He felt her fingers grasping at his shorts, jerking him even closer.
He groaned as he pressed against her, his cock hard and heavy, and he wished he had a condom with him, so he could strip off her clothes, pull down his shorts, and thrust into her. He slid his hand between her legs, feeling the heat of her desire through her shorts. She gasped the second he made contact; she was so ready to have him inside her.
She moaned again, and it started as a long, low sigh that became his name. “Becker.”
“Do you have any idea how much I want to be inside you?”
She nodded against him. “As much as I want you there,” she answered quickly, her voice ragged.
“I want to bury myself inside you right now. I want to feel you gripping me,” he whispered huskily against her neck.
“And then?” she asked, rocking against his hand, greedily seeking out his fingers even through the layers between them.
“You’ll give yourself to me, spread your legs wide open, take me all the way in.”
“I will,” she said, as she shuddered in his arms. He wrapped a hand around her waist, keeping her steady.
“Then I’ll kiss you while I fuck you,” he whispered into her ear.
She gasped, and wriggled her body closer to his. “I want that. All of it. I want fucking and kissing,” she said, her breathing turning more erratic.
“I’ll fuck you like I kiss you, and kiss you like I fuck you. With nothing held back,” he said, his tongue darting against the salty skin of her neck as she trembled against him.
“Do that to me now,” she said, her breathing turning erratic, her sounds reminding him how close they were flirting with danger.
Like the moment before a back draft.
