 Into the Flames  has some of my favorite authors, NJ Walters, Desiree Holt, Cindy Spencer Pape, Liz Crowe, Adele Downs, Sam Cheever, and Nina Pierce. The stories vary from steamy to sweet romances. I am going to pick out a couple of my favorite for this review.  The first story had me at hello, Rescue Me by NJ Walters.  This has the story of Frank a fire fighter with a burning secret and Martha the woman who has always loved him.  I loved this take on a phoenix shifter.  Being able to control fire and be a fire fighter is totally fitting for Frank. He does have fears; will he always be able to control his powers?  This fear drove him from his first love Martha years ago. He rescues her from a fire and now she is back in his life again will the old fears drive her away again?  There is a lot of great emotion in this book. Frank and Martha have a chemistry that is steamy and hot. They are both very strong characters. Martha has a pure sweet loving heart; this is what Frank needs in his life. Someone strong enough to brave the flames of love with him. 
The next story I particularly liked due to the uniqueness of it is by Cindy Spencer Pape. This one is called Where There’s Smoke. This has the story of Nettie. Nettie is in trouble when we meet her. Her abusive father has her under his control. Eli is a lawyer and volunteer fire fighter. He will have to use all his skills to make Nettie see she needs to get away from her father and start a life of happiness and love on her own.  They manage to even fall in love along the way.  What made this story unique for me is it is set in the 1920’s. This happens to be one of my favorite eras.  I liked the descriptions and how Ms. Spencer Pape really made me feel like I was there with her characters.   This romance is sweet, but the story and the descriptions make it a must read.  Truly romantically done.
Over all Into the Fire has a little something for everyone, from paranormal, to historical, and even modern erotic romance lovers will find a story to love in the pages of this anthology.  All of the authors are extremely talented and transport you to a place of love and beauty.  I am very glad I picked up this one, and I highly recommend it to any true romantic.
