Victoria Spenser has a past and a psychic ability to detect fires that she¿s trying to leave behind. A native of Jamaica she is forced to move to America to the only relative who will claim her, Aunt Janet. Aunt Janet works for Robert Braxton, an arson investigator with a painful past of his own. When Victoria goes to work for Robert as his maid she thinks she may have finally settled into a real life. But then the fires start and she goes to the police with her visions to offer help. Robert doesn¿t believe in psychics and is outraged that he is employing a woman who claims to be one. Ms. Girard delivers a refreshing story with Illusive Flame. A wonderfully researched and executed suspense centering around an arsonist and the prejudice of people who don¿t understand true psychic abilities. At one point, the intense storyline had me checking my own smoke detectors. The romance was very slow moving for me, seemingly forgotten sometimes as the desire to catch the arsonist took precedence. However, Victoria and Robert¿s relationship did develop into a believable joining at an extremely emotional time. I myself fell in love with Robert on page 247! Kudos to Ms. Girard on a very entertaining read that I would definitely recommend! Reviewed By: AC Arthur, Black Butterfly Review

Usually I don't like to endure a story that has a lot of extraneous details in addition to the love story, but the past and present lives of Robert Braxton and Victoria Spenser are an intricate parts of there present day love. They both have secrets and truths that they must come to terms with, and the journey there is well worth it. Girard did an excellent job of pulling the reader in through the characters.
