His fake fiancée... It's time for lone wolf Rafe Dante to feel the fiery power of The Inferno. After a disastrous first marriage to his non-Inferno wife, he's done with happily-ever-after. To satisfy his matrimonial-minded family, he hires a woman to fake an engagement, claiming they've experienced the burning itch of The Inferno. His plan is to pay his fiancée to leave him at the altar, and since Dante legend alleges The Inferno only ever strikes once, he'll finally be free to return to his lone wolf ways, problem solved. Only one slight glitch... The minute he and his temporary fiancée touch, The Inferno strikes-for real.
Sweet, innocent Larkin Thatcher longs for a family of her own. Unfortunately, it isn't likely to happen, not considering the secrets she hides. When Rafe hires her to be his pretend fiancée and offers a place to stay, it's a godsend for both Larkin and her "dog," a lovely Husky who looks suspiciously like a wolf. But falling in love with his family while lying to them isn't part of the plan. Nor is the overwhelming desire that sparks between the two, one that threatens their plan to go their separate ways.
If she must leave, she will, even if it means she'll be homeless again, but not without an antique bracelet in Rafe's possession that will identify her father. It's all she wants from her soon-to-be-ex fiancé. All Rafe wants from her is, well ... her. At least, for now. But The Inferno has a funny way of turning "now" into forever.
What will happen when Rafe learns her true identity? Will "now" turn to never? Or will The Inferno find a way to mate these two lone wolves?

Q & A with Day Leclaire:
So explain this Inferno business?
Right?!? Wouldn't it make life so much simpler-and so much more complicated-if we could identify our soul mates with a single touch? I loved the concept and it was the springboard for the entire series. I always try to incorporate just a touch of fantasy in all my books. To my delight, readers seem to identify with the idea, so thanks to all of you who fell in love with both the Dantes and The Inferno!
Can you tell us one interesting detail about this particular book?
I've both fostered and rescued dogs and have a true soft spot for those sweet, desperate animals that only want love and a forever home. That's the basis for this book and a real hot button for me. Not only are the dogs in this book looking for a forever home, but so is the heroine.
