All her life, a faint memory of her parents and fire has glowed at the back of Rachel Quinn's mind. With her parents long dead, there is no one to clarify what it means.
When a gorgeous winged man rescues her from a pack of werewolves, something flares to life inside Rachel. Suddenly she can see the paranormal world around her, a world unseen by mortals. And far more complicated.
When Phoenix's massive orange-and-red wings erupt from his back, he knows his Challenge-an age-old battle against his Demonos counterpart-is upon him. Heeding Rachel's cry for help adds a layer of complexity never seen in any previous Challenge.
Rachel, they discover, isn't entirely human. Like Phoenix, she commands fire. Fire calls to fire, and soon they are succumbing to a fierce attraction. As the Challenge bears down on them, though, Phoenix must discover what the Demonos has in store for mankind. If he doesn't succeed, the entire world will be swallowed up in darkness-and Rachel along with it.

Rachel has special powers - just what they are, she's trying to discover, but they are somehow connected with fire. When Phoenix, the Fire Elemental, helps rescue her from a werewolf pack, they begin exploring what she can do, and how, perhaps, her talents supplement his, in just the right way. Disclaimer: I am personally acquainted with the author. Paranormal romance requires a lot of world-building and establishing the rules of a world that looks like our own - in this case, San Francisco, but includes different beings and magical powers. This novel does that without getting too bogged down in explanations, and while there is action, action, action! Lots of steam between the characters, and of course, a HFN at the conclusion.
