Belle Jamison is an emotional woman. Normally there would be nothing wrong with that but these days she runs the risk of starting a twelve alarm fire, or a tsunami, or a freak tornado. You see, a crazy scientist put an experimental formula in her grande mocha latte and when she’s premenstrual she could level the city. She’s a super powered weather girl with the four elements at her command.

Depending on how you look at it belle’s new powers are a blessing or a curse. An evil organization is willing to do anything to get their hands on her. Not because she’s so irresistible but to run a bunch nasty painful experiments on her to discover how to duplicate her powers. The blessing part? That’s where Rome Matthews comes in. Buff, beautiful, darkly handsome Rome moves like a jungle predator and is ruthless to boot. Perfect companion for a fledgling super-heroine, of course. This is where it gets to be a little curse-like; Rome came to neutralize Belle before the bad guys could get her.

Playing with Fire is too fabulous for words. Gena Showalter’s sense of fun, wicked talent and ability to craft believable heroes and heroines out of fantastical situations continues to amaze and delight. Belle is one of those wise cracking characters you just can't forget. Rome smoulders with so much broody hunkiness he'll make you want to break out the dessert toppings. you will have a blast.
