Rekindle the Flame (Hot In Chicago series)
Cuddle up by the fire with the irresistible prequel to KATE MEADER’s smokin’ Hot in Chicago series — originally published in the sizzling holiday anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside — a superhot e-novella that will warm you from your head to your heart and all the way to your toes!
Chicago firefighter Beck Rivera always knew his destiny would be defined by two things: his dream to follow in the footsteps of his legendary foster father Sean Dempsey and his teenage passion for heiress Darcy Cochrane, the one girl who could both stoke and cool his fire. Loving her meant setting her free and breaking her heart — and his. But when a chance reunion at his family’s bar, sparked by a drunk Santa, places her in his path again, destiny can no longer be denied.
The last thing heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Darcy Cochrane needs is the rollercoaster of emotion stirred up by her first love: sexy, gorgeous man-on-fire Beck Rivera. But he always had such talented hands. And more talented lips. And…maybe one time can’t hurt. Then she’ll send him packing like he did to her all those years ago. But Darcy and Beck soon discover that nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love…

From Oxford professor and renowned British composer ANDREW GANT, a joyous account of the history behind our favorite carols. Everyone loves a carol in the end, even Ebenezer Scrooge.
