Where There's Fire
Originally published by Berkley in 2008.

Shattered by her mother's death--and the fact that the killer got off scot-free--Detective Shoni Alexander is prepared to take the law into her own hands.  And she's determined that nothing will get in her way.  Not her badge, not the big arson case she's been assigned, and definitely not the mysterious witness who seems to see right through her...

Amnesiac John McClane has been living in a deserted warehouse.  When the building is torched, the gorgeous cop working the arson case stirs feelings he thought were gone for good.  But little does he know that he's about to piece together a past better left forgotten--or that Shoni's desire for retribution will jeopardize the future he's imagining for them...
