Blurb: Love forged in fire is unassailable.
Fireman Salter Beauman, Beau to his friends, has had his eye on cute Marty Standish ever since he helped rescue Marty and his boss from the bombed out rubble of Temple Church. An analyst for the security services, Marty is cute, geeky and submissive through and through—even if he doesn’t know it yet.
With a serial fire starter making inroads into Beau’s life expectancy, he decides that there is no time to waste and introduces Marty to the D/s lifestyle. Marty responds with wide eyes, an insatiable desire to learn and the ability to turn Beau on with nothing more than a wiggle of his slim hips.
But Beau has a second, far more malevolent admirer. ‘See me dance’ is the message left at a series of increasingly dangerous fires. Beau and Marty must work together to catch a psychotic arsonist before their love goes up in flames. Literally.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene that includes sexual abuse.

Review: This is book six in the Tales from the Edge series. Salter Beauman, a firefighter wants Marty Standish. In his pursuit to make him his he realizes that an arsonist is targeting him. I liked Beau’s strong dominant character. He seemed confident and sure of what he wanted. Marty was sweet, geeky and shy/ I loved the Marty’s analytical mind and found it fascinating when he went into details about things I did not know about.
These two set the pages on fire when they got together. The dates were sweet yet demanding at times. Beau is a very kinky man and Marty is just coming into the lifestyle so I was glad that Beau was careful with him. They seemed well matched for each other as Marty had submissive tendencies that he was unsure about.
I really enjoyed the story however I would have liked to have seen more of the mystery portions more in the book than what there was. Most was at the beginning and end with a few small mentions in the middle.
All in all it was a great read.
