Book 1 of the Hot City Nights contemporary romance series is a 224-page steamy romantic suspense “so full of fiery emotions and blistering passion, not to mention the wonderful characters, I closed the last page with a huge smile on my lips.” Rendezvous


Mansfield, New Jersey, is burning up building by building—each fire more devastating than the last—and it’s Irish born police detective Jamie Keegan’s job to bring the “Firefly,” as the arsonist has dubbed himself, to justice. He balks when his captain orders him to consult the beautiful and enigmatic India Cook, who has offered her services as a psychic to the police department. 


Jamie views India as a con artist. The fact that India doesn’t like to be touched—that’s how she reads people—is only more of a challenge, because she’s just about the most smoking hot woman he’s ever met. Convinced she’s a con artist, Jamie tries to deny the chemistry simmering between them as they work together to stop the Firefly before he can strike again. 


A Burning Touch, Book 1 of the Hot City Nights series of steamy contemporary romances with urban settings, is a full-length romantic mystery with no cliffhanger. It can be read and enjoyed independently from the rest of the series. 

“Ever a master of characterization and sexual tension, Patricia Ryan creates a sizzling romantic suspense about the thin line between passion and anguish sure to heat up our reading pleasure!” RT BookReviews


“A steamy, sizzling, and thoroughly entertaining novel... The pacing is swift… a bonfire of passion. Way to go, Pat Ryan!” Affaire de Coeur


“The most remarkable aspect of this novel is the author’s empathic treatment of India’s [psychic] condition. This situation creates some unique sexual tension, including the well-handled description of desire in a man’s mind. Women reading romances are occasionally treated to token narratives about passion and desire from a hero’s point of view. Author Patricia Ryan takes that point of view one step further, with fascinating results. Readers will not want to put this one down until they have reached the satisfying happy ending.” Gothic Journal
