Shockwaves shoot through the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives (ACRO) when horrific video surfaces from the Brazilian rain forest. A team of Navy SEALs has been nearly wiped out by something sinister and superhuman. Now ACRO agents Sela Kahne and Marlena West head to the world’s most unforgiving jungle in pursuit of a mythical monstrosity with a taste for human blood. And the only path that will take them to the creature runs through two men, each hiding his own dark secret.
Sela is an expert on cryptozoology with a sideline skill that could prove invaluable: when she makes love to a man, she engulfs his innermost thoughts. Teamed with Marlena, Sela makes contact with the lone SEAL survivor, Chance McCormack. Meanwhile Logan Mills, the man who rescued Chance, leads his private company on a hunt that has nothing to do with saving lives. Soon, Sela will put her supernatural charms to work on Logan, determined to extract information about the creature they are seeking. But in this sweat-drenched realm of danger and deception, Logan is more than just a passive target. He has the power to lead a highly-trained seducer into a jungle without any rules, without any limits—and no end to the heat.
Yay! Tempting The Fire has finally released! It's been a year between Croft releases, so it's nice to see this book hit the shelves. I love, love, love this cover — probably my favorite so far.
Now, if you haven't read any of the Croft books, I have to say…I don't recommend starting with this one. It's the fifth in a series of six, so by this point, we're setting up the big finale, so you might be a little lost. I definitely recommend starting with Riding The Storm (book 1) or Unleashing The Storm (book 2.)
Romantic Times magazine gave it 4 stars and says, "A mythical creature, a couple of truly hot guys and sizzling sex make this ACRO (Agency for Covert Rare Operatives) entry a spicy and fabulously entertaining tale. Even the subplot has richly drawn characters and a smartly developed plot." Awesome!

Hope you enjoy!
In other news, I apologize for being so scarce, but want to thank everyone for their support and prayers and positive thoughts. They worked! Things have improved, and though I'm still on the west coast to stay with my parents and help out, we're staying upbeat (and busy.)
I hope to be online more in the coming weeks, though this week is full of deadline hell and doctor appointments. I think once I get home (around mid-August, probably) things should settle down. And with any luck, I'll have some back cover copy and new book covers to show you!
Hope all is well with everyone, and happy reading!
