A hunky Navy SEAL, a redheaded, kick-ass detective and an illegal arms deal. What more could a romance fan ask for? How about some hot sex, too? You’ll find them all in this fun novel by Karen Anders.

Detective Sienna Parker is none too pleased to find out that the Navy Liaison Officer assigned to work with her on the gun-running case is none other than Lieutenant A.J. Camacho, the self-same hunk who spent the night before curling Sienna’s toes in a lethally hot one-night stand.

They proceed with their investigation, following clues, tracking leads and dealing with the heat which develops between them at the blink of an eyelash. And my goodness, those eyelashes blink a lot. These two can’t keep their hands off each other. To her credit, Karen Anders does a very good job of adding some depth to both Sienna and A.J., and keeps the plot centered around their search for the arms dealers.

But it’s the sex that leaps off these pages as Sienna and A.J. get hot and heavy from the start, with an energy and enthusiasm that would make a rabbit green with envy. Of course the reader can see the love building between them, but it takes a few twists and turns of the sheets before either of the two principals cotton on to the fact that they’re made for each other.

This is another delightful book that lives up to its “Blaze” billing, since these two light fires when they’re together. Sienna is every bit as demanding as A.J. when it comes to passion, and that’s a lovely change from some stories where the guy is forever initiating the action. Here, it’s fifty-fifty all the way. If you’re looking for something that will make your cheeks burn, try this book. But I’d recommend reading it in private, or your blushes will betray you.
