When the tragic death of her father brings Addison MacKenna back to the town where she was born, she can't understand the strange sensations that have begun to consume her.

A gorgeous, stunning man she can't seem to take her mind or her eyes off of. All of a sudden, the impossible seems possible, and it's not clear whether that's a blessing or a curse.
Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious, but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. He's faced with the tough decision of whether to let her in or sabotage their new relationship in order to keep her safe as well as his own heart.
Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them in the end?

About the Author
About Susan Griscom
I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.
I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.
My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot, as does a steamy contemporary romantic suspense.

Was enjoying the story but then the author started using F-vulgarity and that totally wreaked it for me. I do not like hearing or reading it. It is very distressing that people use it so often and think it's ok. It's not.
Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite Ever since her father’s death, Addie MacKenna had been having horrifying nightmares. That comes with the territory, but these are more than just nightmares and it’s evident from the first few pages of Ignite the Flame that Addie is more than what she seems. Her nightmares are so palpable they seem real and a fear lingers in the back of her mind that she might be going crazy. But when delicious and dark Cael Sheridan walks into her life, we learn that he’s connected to her late father in ways he doesn’t reveal right away. Susan Griscom has written a hot and steamy romance with wonderfully exciting supernatural elements to round out this tale. Ignite the Flame is, at its heart, a romance about two people who are more similar than they imagine. Addie and Cael are cut from the same cloth which means their journey to love is as exciting and mysterious as the others involving a powerful crystal and a sacred text. Despite their supernatural abilities, which are awesome to read, Addie and Cael are very much slaves to their human emotions. Capable and strong, Cael can’t fight Addie’s innocent allure, and despite his arrogance she can’t help but want him. One of my favorite things about Susan Griscom’s fantastical romance is that no matter how much of a bad ass Addie or Cael might be, they still have the same relationship problems as the rest of the world. That feeling of unity allows the reader to jump into this world wholeheartedly and enjoy every thrilling moment of the journey to the last page.
