A sizzling novella from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author N. J. Walters!

When a raging fire engulfs her apartment, Martha Benson can do nothing but send up desperate prayers that she might somehow be rescued—until she suddenly finds herself being carried out in the powerful arms of the one man she never expected to see again, Frank Ellis. When he miraculously parts the demonic wall of flames and leads them to safety, she's stunned to realize that this ruggedly handsome man who once broke her heart can still stir sensual desires she'd long given up on ever feeling again.

As a young man, Frank was consumed by a haunting connection to fire that he did not understand and lived in fear that he might accidentally harm Martha. Forced to walk away from her for her own safety, he still dreamed of her and their youthful passion. And now that he has found her again nearly twenty years later, he's determined to never leave her, and he knows he must learn to harness his mystical power to win her trust and make her his own.

As their reunion sparks their desire anew and forges a deep emotional and erotic bond, Frank and Martha must both confront their fears to rise from the ashes of their past and rekindle a love that can never be extinguished . . .

"N. J. Walters [has an] exceptional talent for writing great stories with memorable characters and erotic encounters." —Goodreads

I've read every book in the Blood of the Drakon series and enjoyed each one. So, when I saw this book on Netgalley, I jumped at the opportunity to read an arc for a promising new series with a phoenix! Frank and Martha were in love with each other in high school. Until Frank left without a word. Martha was left trying to put her heart back together and Frank did everything he could to protect the ones he staying away. Many years later, their paths cross and Frank cannot stay away anymore. But, at what cost? I liked the story but felt it was a little rushed. I also thought it was very easy to determine the person behind it all. I think if the story had been longer the characters would have been more developed and would have packed a greater punch to this phoenix tale. The adult scenes in the book happened too quickly when considering the traumatic experience Martha had recently lived through. The author's writing had a nice flow and the story was clear and easy to understand. Overall, it wasn't a bad read, but I was hoping for more from the great synopsis.

This was a good but definitely quick read. Frank and Martha are thrown back together when Frank comes and rescues her from a fire. The story line had a lot of promise but I felt like it was rushed in order to keep it a novella and that part of the story was missing. I loved the concept for it and wished there had been more explored. The characters had me intrigued but like I said-it is very short and I was left kinda wanting something more. On a whole it wasn't bad though and I definitely was into the story line and wanting to know more about Frank. Here's to hoping there will be another book!

This was a quick reunion read for two teenage loves twenty years later. He is a firefighter and rescues her from a fire. He left all those years ago because he discovered something about himself. Not a lot on what that is, or why, but the story focuses on their relationship, and the attraction between them that flares, pardon the pun, back up again!

Martha Benson is rescued from a raging fire by the one man she never expected to see again, a man who miraculously parts the demonic wall of flames and leads them to safety. Frank Ellis once walked away from Martha to protect from his haunting connection to fire that he did not understand. Now that he’s found her again, he’s determined to harness his mystical power to win her trust and make her his own. In order to rekindle their love, Martha and Frank need to confront their fears and rise from the ashes of their pasts. A cute, fiery story full of passion, suspense and gut wrenching emotions. Their attraction and their love for each other still stands strong even after twenty years which speaks to readers but their relationship is not so easy to resume considering their pasts and the obstacles that stand in the way which has lots of emotional turmoil flowing from the pages and pulling readers in and refusing to let go, especially since both Martha and Frank feeling are easily understood by the readers. Although a little on the short side, the plot is fast paced and full of suspense with secrets being revealed and an unknown enemy who also has an affinity for flames stalks Martha with ruthless intensity, adding danger and excitement to this deliciously steamy romance that readers can’t take eyes off of.

Rescue Me by new to me author N. J. Walters. I did enjoy the possible second chance at romance storyline. The male character being a fireman. Just the right amount of spicy content. What I wasn't crazy about was the fantasy element of fire and the male character that brought my rating down.
