Summer's Flame by Wendy Davy


Firefighter Aiden Hawk has found his calling - giving back to the community that helped raise him - but deep down he longs for more. When Summer Cassel comes into his life hope sparks, and he dares to dream of a family to call his own, but each time he nears her, his nerves kick in and a shy streak takes hold.

When Aiden moves in next door, Summer is determined to give him a proper welcome. After all, the handsome man ignites a flame she can't seem to resist. But, she doesn't take risks, especially those involving her heart, so when she discovers there is more to her bashful neighbor than meets the eye, Summer must make the ultimate decision...

Will she be bound by fear or released by faith?


Excerpt:
He stepped close. "I thought you'd be asleep by now."

"I saw the news." Her voice shook.

A mixture of emotions cascaded through him. Had she waited up for him?

She tucked her lower lip between her teeth as if hesitant as to what to say next. After a moment, she stepped forward and wrapped her arms around his waist, pressing tight against him.

The compassionate gesture reached his soul. He folded her into his arms, rested his cheek on the top of her head, and inhaled her sweet honeysuckle scent. Heartbeats collided. Warmth seeped through clothes. She had waited. He wasn't alone. No more pretending. "I don't think this friendship thing is going to work out for us."

She released her hold and slowly brought up her wide-eyed gaze.
Cupping her face in his hands, Aiden smoothed his thumbs along her soft skin. "You are difficult to resist, Summer Cassel. Much  more so than I could've imagined."

The pulse point at the base of her throat went wild. His heart rate matched hers. And, although he'd promised himself he wouldn't cross the line - he bent his head and kissed her.

She sucked in a breath. And, why wouldn't she be surprised?

They'd agreed only to be friends.
