Marcie O’Dwyer is a fire fighter. Ray
Smith has just transferred from another firehouse to Marcie’s.
They get off on the wrong foot, arguing constantly until they
have a little competition and Marcie proves her ability to be
as good a fire fighter as Smith. Smith is attracted to Marcie
but he lost one love in the line of duty and he refuses to
take that risk again. Marcie thinks Smith is an arrogant jerk
but slowly they both come to realize that their attraction is
too strong to deny. As soon as their affair begins, it ends
when Smith appears to be untrustworthy.
When several buildings are set ablaze and
Marcie sees something suspicious she becomes a target for the
arsonist. All signs point to Smith. Could he really hurt her
and innocent people, or is he being set up?
A Heated Romance is a story
with a black cloud- from the angst of Marcie and Smith’s
relationship, to their dysfunctional and/or tragic families,
to the arsonist’s deeds, it just feels depressing. The basic
plot of A Heated Romance is good but it’s a bit
fast paced and I never felt much chemistry between Marcie and
Smith, therefore, I would not recommend A Heated Romance.
