Trance, a special agent with the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives (ACRO), has been sent to make contact with Ulrika Jaegar, who possesses the power to turn into a wolf. Rik was previously captured by Itor, ACRO’s rival. Since her escape she’s traveled around and is now working as Mistress Rik in a BDSM club in London.

Trance, who can hypnotize anyone, is a natural Dominant. Playing submissive to Rik does not come easily to him, but he knows it’s the only way he can get close to her without her unleashing the beast inside her.

Rik knows the man she meets is not a sub, but she’s drawn to him anyway. When she finds out what he’s up to it is too late, and she finds herself captured. Her previous captors, Itor, wanted to use her as a weapon, and she’s not exactly sure what ACRO wants. Can she relearn to trust Trance, and can they both overcome hurts from the past to love each other?

Taming the Fire is the fourth book in the ACRO series from Sydney Croft, and the books just keep getting better and better. I fell in instant love with Trance at the end of Seduced by the Storm and eagerly awaited his story. Ms. Croft did not disappoint. This book left me breathless and panting for more.

Emotions run high as Trance and Rik learn to deal with their attraction to each other and face problems from the past that helped shape their lives, and can now derail their futures. I didn’t read this book, I devoured it. The ACRO world is full of danger and suspense, mixed with hot, sexual emotions.

I tip my hat to the writing team of Stephanie Tyler and Larissa Ione, who make up Sydney Croft. I can only hope they have more adventures planned for the ACRO world. I Joyfully Recommend Taming the Fire.
