Melt for Him CoverHe knows exactly how to make her burn…

Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt.
Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.

“Why didn’t you tell me you were from here?” he asked, holding his hands out in question.
She furrowed her brow. “What?”
                                                           
“I had no idea you were Travis’s sister,” he said, and he sounded pissed.
                                                           
“And I had no idea you were a fireman,” she said, parking her hands on her hips.
                                                           
He shoved a hand roughly through his hair, shook his head. “And I had no idea you were the photographer. You said you were an artist.”
                                                           
“I am!” she said, her voice rising. What the hell? “I can draw, and I do tattoos. I also happen to be good at shooting pictures. Besides, you said you were a bar owner,” she pointed out, as if they could both redo this colossal mistake by rehashing the moments they both could have been more honest. “Why didn’t you tell me more about yourself?” she countered.
                                                           
He didn’t answer. He moved closer, maybe a foot away now. The anger felt like a pulsating life force, but there was something else between them, too. Heat. And want. The nearness was intoxicating. She could reach out and touch his chest. That broad, sturdy chest that she’d loved having her hands all over.
                                                           
She was edgy now, nervous, as they stood like two sparring partners, tucked away in the back hallway of the coffee shop near the restrooms. She wanted him to touch her again, and she hated that she was still thinking of last night, and how they’d connected so deeply in bed. But also in their conversations all through the night and up to a few minutes ago when they were texting. She was torn between needing to leave and wanting him to pin her against the wall and bury her in kisses that made her weak in the knees.
                                                           
Too bad she could never do any of those things with him again.
Message from Lauren: I want to let you all in on a little secret about me. I love hotfiremen. I stare at hot fireman. I slow down when driving past thefire station to try to get a better look at the men inside. Whichmight explain why I wrote a sexy firefighter series! But all oglingand firemen lust aside, not only are firefighters sexy, they are alsobrave, courageous and active in their communities. As I wrote MELT FORHIM, I learned more about the work that volunteer fire departmentsaround the country do — both in responding to emergencies and inhelping their communities. And because firefighters have given me somuch inspiration, I wanted to be able to give back with this book. 

That’s why I will be donating half of all my proceeds from thepreorders and release week sales for MELT FOR HIM to the NVFCFirefighter Support Fund that supports the nation’s volunteer fire andEMS departments. Together, I believe we can all make a difference andhelp support the men and women who serve our local communities andcome through for us when we need them most! xoxo Lauren

   

And don’t miss the novella in the Fighting Fire Series, BURN FOR ME!


burnformecoverShe’s the one fire he can’t put out…


Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.


Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town—his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.
