Jake Chivis is the descendant of Fire Elementals with a gift for psychometry, the ability to see memories from touching objects. After a bad breakup and trouble at work, Jake gave up his career as a detective in Detroit and moved to England to join a research program studying Elemental gifts at University College London. It seemed like the perfect way to escape his past and start over, and this time he’s vowed not to fall into the trap of dating a coworker. At least that’s the plan, until he meets Doctor Ilmarinen Gale.
Mari Gale is blond, sexy, relentlessly academic and comfortable in his own skin in a way Jake envies. After a handful of embarrassing encounters, Jake is ready to resign himself to staying under the radar, but when a colleague’s brother goes missing, he and Mari must work together to find him. As they dig into the inexplicable disappearance, Jake is impressed with Mari’s competence and unique skills, and even more impressed by his ability to wrap Jake around his finger. Together the unlikely pair discover murder, betrayal, secrets and just how high Mari can fan Jake’s flames.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence, strangulation and murder.

Review: Jake and Mari both worked well together when a colleague goes missing and things turn sinister. The mystery immediately sparked my interest and the many twists and turns kept me reeling and reading.
Doctor Mari Gale was sexy, seemed like a carefree academic that was very comfortable with himself. Jake is a descendant of a fire element with psychometry, the ability to see memories from touching objects that I found fascinating yet could imagine it was horrifying at times as well.
I was entranced with how well the mystery was written and how interwoven it was with the right amount of details to keep the reader reading until the very end. This book contains an ample supply of mystery, danger and enough sexy scenes to heat up the pages.
