Luke Meza is acting sheriff in the
small town of Tenaja Falls. He figured it was the best way
to still work and be able to have some quiet time to figure
out what he wants to do next with his life. But, quiet is
not what he gets. Only a few days into the new job he has a
bizarre death on his hands. When he finds out the local
authority to help him with wildlife is a woman who looks
like she is a little too much of a party girl he is
bothered. He is bothered in more than one-way; he hasn’t
had his blood race this fast in a long time. But, he is
determined to not act on the attraction, especially as she
is almost a decade younger than he is.
Shay Phillips knows her town and local
area. She has lived there for her entire life and now has a
job studying the mountain lions in the area. She is also
raising her younger brother, Dylan, who has defiantly hit
the age where he is testing her limits, not to mention her
patience. She is stunned when a local woman is killed by a
mountain lion. The only one in the area is one that is
close to her heart. There is something slightly wrong with
the crime scene though. Not one drop of blood. Shay knows
this means there is more going on than a local wild cat
acting out of character.
With suspects ranging from local
sheriffs to Shay’s kid brother how will the two be able to
navigate the potential minefield of an investigation.
Furthermore what will happen if they decide to act on their
lust filled thoughts?
Wow – Set the Dark on Fire
is a fast-paced, action-filled romantic “who done it”. I
love how Ms. Sorenson has the characters start out with
first impressions (some bad) and have to learn more about
each other quickly. Shay and Luke are both characters who
have strong personalities and who have overcome more than
many people give them credit for. I was intrigued by the
mountain lion information as well as the “who done it” part
of the story. I have found a new must read author! I
Joyfully Recommend Set the Dark on Fire
and think any lover of romantic suspense will love the depth
of Ms. Sorenson’s characters.
