Summary

A thrilling, fast-paced novel of romantic suspense from sensational New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Howard. 
For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet. 
The part-time police chief of a small West Virginian mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan. 
The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.

    “An entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.” 
    –My Train of Thoughts 
     
    There’s no time for a vote… 
     
    Sean and Sara’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany PD. But it’s not until a local television interview in which they meet Reanne Mable that they end up finding themselves involved with a truly high-profile investigation. 
     
    Reanne is the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport, and his daughter, Halie, has gone missing from her university campus. With his desire to keep the matter out of the media spotlight, Davenport turns to Sean and Sara to find her. But with the police already investigating the matter, taking this case would pit them against their friends from the police department, including their former sergeant Jimmy Voigt. 
     
    As time goes on, though, the fate of the girl is not up for debate, and the McKinleys set out to discover what really happened. With the mayor taking the heat for a recently passed zoning bylaw, maybe an enraged small-business owner is behind Halie’s disappearance. Or did she simply grow tired of living in her father’s limelight and run away? 
     
    To get the answers, Sean and Sara will need to use all the resources at their disposal and may have to call upon their good friend Jimmy for help.

    ‘The
    window’s lead is melting, its glass is bowing out. Within the plaster walls,
    horsehairs crisp in filaments of fire. Soon there is nothing left within the
    room. Wood. Wool. Flesh. Even metal. Gone. So now, like any living thing, flame
    has a choice:
    
     
    Feed
    or die. 
    
     
    Across the threshold, a city sleeps.’
    
     
    WHY SHOULDN’T
    GOD’S VENGEANCE BE SPECTACULAR? 
    
     
    1666. The Great Plague, that killed 100,000
    citizens, has passed. Londoners celebrate survival in different ways. Some with
    praising God. Many, including the Merry Monarch and his court, with sin. They
    drink. They gamble. They indulge in carnal delights.  
    
     
    While others…
    
     
     
    
     
    666 is the number of the Beast, this the
    year foretold when Christ will return. To slay the Devil. To bring the New Jerusalem.
    A gang of fanatics – the Saints -  choose
    to hasten that prophesied day. They will kidnap, rape, murder. Above all, they
    will kill a king. For in the renegade Captain Blood they have the perfect assassin.
    
     
    Two men - the highwayman William Coke and
    the thief-taker Pitman - are recruited to stop them. Both fall victim to the
    Saint’s foul plots. All seems lost…  
    
     
     
    
     
    Yet in the early hours of September 2nd,
    1666, something starts that will overtake them all – fanatics, princes,
    soldiers and fops, actresses and holy murderers. For the year of the Beast is
    three quarters done and the Devil has not yet had his due. 
    
     
     London’s a tinder box. Politically,

    ‘The brilliance of Fire is that while the villains and their motives

    thriller that shifts from a riverside theatre to the cramped confines of
    a 17th-century warship and finally to the congested parishes of
    London.’ - Macleans Magazine
