It's not police lieutenant Wes Kimball's imagination. Cara Hughes, the big-city arson investigator from Atlanta, is hot, hot, hot. She's slender, curvy-and rumored to sleep with a six-inch switchblade under her pillow-and Wes is forced to fight his four-alarm desire from the first moment they meet. Cara seems just as intrigued.. But business is business, and she'll lose control with Wes in bed before she'll give ground in their investigation. Equally passionate about their work, Wes and Cara know their white-hot affair must fizzle eventually. Still, a temporary fling has its merits. And where's the harm when it means both of them get exactly what they want-or do they?
