Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match…
Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian–old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She’s just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren’t easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love…
Especially not with a fireman who’s hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire.
Cowboy can’t resist the fiery little librarian, and he’s determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know–if she’d let him. She’ll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he’s found the one fire he can’t control…
Playing With Fire is book 2 in the Tangled in Texas series and is Cowboy’s story. We met Cowboy in Rules of Protection and we know he’s a bit of a playboy. He’s sexy, quick witted, and loyal. He’s also a member of the fire department and is investigating a couple of unsolved fires, including the one responsible for the death of his fire Chief.
Anna is the new town librarian. She is quiet, proper, and shy. She has a past that links her to members of her current home town but she can’t stay long. She’s running from her past.
Cowboy may have finally met his match in Anna. Anna is the only woman that Cowboy wants but can’t get. Anna has had a crush on Cowboy since their teenage years but she can’t and won’t act on it when she knows she has to leave soon.
Read to find out what happens when the past comes into a new light? Can Cowboy convince Anna that they are worth a chance? Can Anna accept that what she knows may not have been the real truth?
This was an amazing book! I was so excited to read Cowboy’s story and Alison did not disappoint!! I loved the banter between Cowboy and Anna. We got to see the characters from Rules of Protection and I loved their parts in Cowboy and Anna’s story. I highly recommend this book!
It’s rule breaker Emily Foster’s birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.
When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.
Jake’s as hot as he is infuriating, and she can’t help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake’s determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she’s determined to get into the right ones–his.
She grew up on a small island off the Texas Gulf Coast, where most of her childhood vacations consisted of camping or hunting trips to the deer lease. Although she’ll always be a Texan at heart, Alison currently resides in the Midwest with her Iowa farm-boy husband and their two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it’s no wonder she writes “girl books.”
She’s an animal lover, a closet video game enthusiast, and believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it’s obviously meant to be. Alison’s an avid romance reader who enjoys penning the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, “Romance…with a sense of humor.”
