    It was Great

    I am an avid reader of all of JDRobb and Iris Johanson and James Patterson books and I thought this was right up there with them it kept you guessing till the end .The chemestry between Tess and Gage was great especially at the end with the question he asked her . I never even suspected the person who was responsible for it all .It kept me going so I had to finish it in 2 days.I thought it was great and am going to read some of her other books this was the first of hers but Not the Last for sure.

    Another GREAT read from JoAnn Ross!!

    If you like fast pace, adventure packed romantic suspense, this book is for you. Ross has penned a tale of terror, redemption, and love in this thriller that follows a deadly arsonist on a fiery tear through Somersett, South Carolina. Tess and Gage are two damaged souls who, together, find the strength to not only stop a deranged killer, but also to overcome the hurts of their pasts and find love with each other. An engaging and exciting story!! Definitely one for the 'keeper shelf', but then again, I ALWAYS keep JoAnn Ross's books!!

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Two years ago, firefighter Daniel McGee was killed in a warehouse-turned-nightclub fire that has never been solved. He left behind his fiance, fellow firefighter Tess Gannon, his last words over the radio he carried telling her that he loved her and that the years they'd spent together were the best of his life. Now she's a member of the fire police, a virtual fireman type cop who investigates the cause of fires, and Danny's death still haunts her-especially now that an arsonist calling himself The Flamemaster is setting fires around the town of Somersett , South Carolina , and sending letters to the local newspaper threatening more fires. <BR/><BR/>At the scene of a burned down apartment building, Tess is brought face to face with Gage O'Halloran, a man dressed in jeans and cowboy boots, talking with a distinct western drawl, calling her sweetheart. Tess is soon taken to task, however, when O'Halloran flashes his ATF badge at her. Now there's two fire investigators on the scene, one from ATF and one from the FBI. Gage, though, knows better than most what type of pyromaniac they're after-he's pretty sure that Somersett's Flamemaster is connected to an arsonist serial killer who murdered his own wife. <BR/><BR/>Now Tess and Gage are facing an arsonist who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. As Tess realizes she needs to face her past and the loss of Danny, Gage discovers that attempting to keep his heart out of his feelings with Tess isn't as easy as he'd thought it would be. A killer stalks closer and closer, and an attraction grows as big as the fires they both try to prevent. For Tess and Gage, finding out who the copycat arsonist-and murderer-is before it's too late is their combined goal. <BR/><BR/>JoAnn Ross has written another winning romantic suspense tale, with a backdrop of fire and murder. Tess still isn't completely over the loss of Danny, and Gage hasn't come to terms with the death of his wife. His laid-back, alpha cowboy attitude grates on Tess's nerves at first, and Tess's inability to focus on anything except her job drives Gage crazy. As these two fight the passion that burns between them, they never lose sight of their real goal-caching the lunatic who is setting fires all over town, causing death and destruction. But once the danger is over and the threat has passed, will the feelings that Tess and Gage felt for each other during a time of high-adrenaline be able to last? <BR/><BR/>You'll have to read BLAZE to find out, but it's definitely worth it!

    Blaze is a scorcher

    Blaze by JoAnn Ross blends a tale of intense passion and the dangers of firefighting._____ Tess Gannon is excelling at her job as an arson inspector. It was an adjustment after she lost her finance and fellow firefighter to a fire a few years ago. She is now hot on the trail of a serial arsonist when a hotshot ATF special agent comes to town. _______ Gage O¿Halloran is a burnt out ATF agent. When similar fires that torn his life apart start happening again Gage rushes to Somersett, South Carolina to lend a hand. Tess and Gage don¿t start out on the best of terms but forge an uneasy alliance to stop the fires. ______ Tess and Gage partnership turns into an explosive passion that neither can ignore. As their passion escalates so does the danger until it strikes much to close to home. ______ Blaze is a story with pulse pounding suspense and white-hot passion that is not to be missed. Tess and Gage feel like people you know and you route for them to find a way to survive on all levels.

    Sizzled Out

    I usually love this authors' books but the ending to this one didn't make sense. Not wanting to ruin the ending for anyone who hasn't read the book can't go into details as to why I feel this way. The book went along at a good pace, until near the end then it read to me like something that was finished in order to meet a deadline! Usually there are small clues throughout the book that add up to the villian, but not in this case. I was not so much disappointed in who the villian turned out to be, but more disappointed in the farfetched explanation of why. From the other reviews I have read I guess I am the only one who thought this way.

    I loved this book all the way up until the ending! I thought it was outrageously far-fetched and didn't connect really well with the rest of the story. I usually love everything about Ross' books, but this one through me for a loop.

    Fiery intrigue

    The Flamemaster feels quite good as he dials from a distance the explosion that enables him to watch the fire that burns Paddy¿s Pig Restaurant and Dance Club. The Somersett, South Caroline fire department struggles with the blaze in which rescue team member Daniel McGee dies in the inferno. His last message is to his fiancé, firefighter Tess Gannon that he loves her.......................... Two years later, former ATF Agent Gage O¿Halloran learns the impossible that the Flamemaster lit a blaze in South Carolina. Gage knows that Randolph Griffith is locked away in prison so a copy cat is out there. Arson investigator Tess looks at a new fire in which a woman died while being tied to a bed when Gage arrives and pompously tries to take over. He thinks a link exists between a strip joint fire, a deadly warehouse inferno, and the latest arson-homicide. Gage informs Tess that he wants sex with her, but also says the rope is the not known signature of the Flamemaster who is in San Quentin. They work together trying to learn who the copycat is and how did this person find insider information on the Flamemaster even as their attraction burns each other with desire.................. Mindful of Kathryn Shay¿s fabulous firefighter¿s series, BLAZE is a terrific romantic suspense that keeps the audience anticipating a showdown, but wondering with whom. The lead couple need one another; however he at first sounds crass and she has not gotten past her loss, so her leaping into bed with him right away seems off kilter; their reasons to avoid commitments on the other hand augments the exciting tale. Though the identity of the villain seems a stretch, fans will appreciate this fiery intrigue............ Harriet Klausner
