Fire Inside

Kristen Ashley. Grand Central/Forever, $8 mass market (432p) ISBN 978-1-4555-992

Ashley delivers a deeply emotional second installment of the Chaos contemporary romance series (after Own the Wind). Advertising executive Lanie Heron is recovering from a first marriage gone terribly wrong, and determined not to ever give anyone such power over her again—until Hopper Kincaid, a single dad, wins her heart. Hopper’s had his own share of heartbreak, but if he’s sure of one thing, it’s that Lanie is the ideal woman for him. After a one-night stand turns into much more, Hopper and Lanie are forced to examine their true feelings for each other and decide whether they can go the distance. Punctuated by blistering-hot sex scenes and fascinating glimpses into the tough world of motorcycle clubs, this romance also delivers true heart and emotion, and a story that will stay with the reader long after the final page is turned.
