Blurb:When the flames of passion are kindled between Brendan and Aeric, it gives a whole new meaning to c’mon baby, light my fire.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire…
Brendan Tierney, a fireman, lives quietly in the outback Australian town of Greenhill. On the eve of his thirtieth birthday, when he and his crew respond to a fire, he is trapped by the flames. Rescued from death by something he cannot—dare not—believe, he returns home, expecting his lonely life to return to normal. He makes a birthday wish, never suspecting that wishes and dreams can come true—with a little help from his sister and grandmother and a wizard…
When Aeric walks into Brendan’s shop, the fireman’s world is turned upside down, because the sexy guy is not what he appears. Ric has spine fur. Bren hopes that the guy is long overdue for a waxing. No such luck. He discovers that his unwelcome guest is a firecat, the rarest of shifters, who can harness fire.
Aeric recognizes Brendan as his forever-mate—for him, its love at first sight. True love is never easy when a human is involved. Bren knows nothing about cat shifters or magic. But worse—he’s been betrayed by love, and denies his own deep, burning passion for Aeric. How can Ric convince Brendan to open his heart to believe in a cat’s forever promise? Or will the past come between a fireman and his cat?

Review: This is book two in this series and should be read in order, but does not have to be. Astrid has a way with words. She gives you such a mystical world to lose yourself into. With wonderful characters, you will fall in love with. The way they mix with each other and show their love to one another. The way they overcome all challenges and turn them to the blessings, they deserve.
Brendan is a fireman and Aeric is a firecat. A firecat can make fire and move it to way they want it to. In this case, Aeric uses to keep Brendan safe. That is his major goal, to keep his mate protected at all cost. They have the abilities to overcome all their pain, anger, and heartache and turn them into love, fulfillment, and passion. They have gifts to help each other but the most powerful one is their love for each other. The sex is hot, sensuous, and full of fire. Pun intended there. On the day they met Aeric used his gift to keep Brendan from dying in a fire caused by an arsonist. From that day forward, they are inseparable.
This story is told with a bit of humor mixed in with a touch of seriousness. It gives you a place to lose yourself when the times around you are too hard to get over. It caught my attention from the start and kept my attention to the end. I loved this story and can’t wait for the next book in this series.
