Hi, book buddies. At this moment, I must be deep in duty while my blog works for me and lets my book fantasies run wild. I'll try to be positive, but it's hard to go back to routine. I miss my holidays! Anyway, today I'd like to share with you my opinion of DANTE'S FIRE, a very nice romance by Jennifer Probst.
This is every woman's fantasy. Believe me. Can you imagine the horror of being assaulted at night by two violent men? And how wonderfully righteous and rewarding it'd be to have a superhero to save you just in time, to kick and brand the evil guys, and then heal you back to your happy self through trust, affection and tenderness?
I loved this story...
- Reason 1: a strong characterization, both main characters have a distinct personality, with dreams and fears and pasts that made me relate and understand them.
Selina has made herself, she's good and independent. Dante has sacrificed his chance for companionship in the name of something superior, he helps wronged women and punishes evil doers.
- Reason 2: superpowers that fire-brand criminals and champion women. How literally hot is that? Oh, so much!
- Reason 3: solid, arousing writing style.
- Reason 4: a masked man, a tortured solitary hero with two identities.
- Reason 5: a masked man, guys, I have to say it again. It's utterly romantic and adventurous.
- Reason 6: beautiful love story.
After surviving a horrid rape attempt, her savior visits Selina at night to soothe her fears, to help her regain sanity and trust. I don't envy Selina, but I do miss having that kind of sweet treatment. Those precious moments together were soulful and intensely romantic.
There's also room for action, tension, and a delicious promise of more stories to come about this dark hero and his world.
first appearance of hero - awesome!the puppy's story - so endearing.

It’s Time To Meet A New Kind Of Hero...
Dante Stark has a dark secret--a legacy left to him by his father which is both a blessing and a curse. A traumatic experience as a small boy gave him special powers of healing, but it comes with a price. Destined to wander the world alone to heal others, he's accepted his fate. Until Selina Rogers forces him to confront his deepest fears, erotic desires, and question his capacity to love.
Selina Rogers has made a name for herself at Inferno Enterprises. She's tough, confident and prepared to succeed. She's also built a world she believes is safe, until she's attacked and then saved by a masked stranger. As he helps her heal physically and emotionally, she becomes fascinated by his overwhelming power and gentle touch. Determined to show Dante the love he's been denying himself, Selina surrenders her heart, and dreams of a future with the mysterious man who completes her.
But will his dark legacy destroy them...or save them both...
