A novel by

♥ I can’t risk my job or principles for a chance at something more. But do I have enough willpower to resist him? ♥


I’m a psychologist on a mission to save the world. I don’t have time for love and never, ever, date patients. That goes double for Leo. The sexy firefighter makes my heart race with his rugged good looks and protective nature. Wounded heroes are my catnip. But he’s my dad’s next-door neighbor… and my new client.

When someone injured my policeman father, I promised myself I’d never fall for a first responder. Falling for Leo is out of the question. Even if my body bursts into flame and threatens to set the house on fire, I’ll never let him into my house. Or my heart.


I volunteer for anger management before I do something I’ll regret. Following my principles leads me to Everley, a therapist with a soft spot for wounded warriors like me. Everley has curves and sass galore. She’s the woman of my dreams. But the bossy little thing is a stickler for following the rules and refuses to date a first responder.

When I see an opportunity to win her heart, all bets are off. I’ll risk everything to make her mine.

Playing with Fireis a standalone steamy sweet instalove short romance with no cheating and no cliffhanger. Love strikes when you least expect it and when it does, it hits hard and ends in a sweet & satisfying happily ever after.

This March, don't blink when you pass through Pearl Springs, Colorado. The county may be small but its firefighters have the biggest hearts and hoses of anyone you'll meet. And while these possessive heroes hide their wounds behind a gruff exterior, when love burns inside of them, nothing can stop them from rushing headlong into forever. This series is brought to you by the Pearl Clutchers Collective.
