Charity Vance needs someplace to lie low and decide what to do with the rest of her life. Burned out from years in the Dallas PD, she’s eager for a fresh start in Saddle Wells, Texas. On a night out with friends, she can’t help but notice the brooding local bar owner needs a hand, so she steps in and ends up right in his arms.

After two tours in Afghanistan, Liam Douglas has settled in to Saddle Wells, running his dad’s bar, but it’s hard to keep good help. Having Charity around is more of a distraction than he wants or needs, but he can’t seem to deny whatever there is between them.

When a drug lord from Charity’s past breaks out of jail and comes looking for revenge, she knows it will be better for everyone if she leaves town, but leaving Liam is more difficult than she thought, and although neither one of them wanted a relationship, it seems there are already strings binding their hearts.


"Strong compelling characters that capture the heart with their scarred pasts draw the reader in and refuse to let go and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot captivates readers with suspense and lots of red-hot passion." --Eva Millien, Goodreads

"Naked Flame is what I like to call a bed-time story. It is short – about a hundred pages, but a complete story. I can read it before bed, finish it, and still get a decent night’s sleep – with pleasant and happy dreams. Something I need sometimes." --Pansy, Goodreads

"A great book well-paced story and an easy read, as well as having a scorching hot sex scene and a sweet happily ever after I loved it." --Heidi, Goodreads

It has been a while since I have read a Desiree Holt story and I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed her stories. She can pack so much into a short novella. Well rounded characters, exciting story complete with some action, and let’s not forget what she does so very well, the romance. *sigh*
