Trance is on a special mission to save the woman known as “Mistress Rik” from others and herself. Having unique gifts himself, Agent trance will find himself drawn to Ulrika “Rik” Jaeger even as he hunts her down. Thrust into a world of Submission and Dominance, both Rik and Trance will have to surrender to the passion that blazes between them in order to survive.
TAMING THE FIRE is one of those rare books where the reader gets done with it and the next day, opens it again as it doesn’t let go of your heart. Author Sydney Croft is back in her acclaimed ACRO series and this time a woman with feral powers is the one being hunted and the man to tame her is none other Agent Trance, a man who has his own unique powers. Ms. Croft is a masterful storyteller who captures the readers’ imagination from the first page and holds onto it until the very end. Passion, mystery and more are within the pages of TAMING THE FIRE and I was blown away by it all. With some wonderful secondary characters popping up to keep the story flowing, the game between Rik and Trance heats up as both find themselves drawn to the other. Can Trance tame the one women meant to be his? Can Rik trust Trance even as she craves his touch? These questions and more are answered as the reader finds out in TAMING THE FIRE.
I love this series and frankly each book continues to get better as we get drawn deeper into the world of ACRO (Agency for Covert Rare Operatives). This author keeps the story fresh and interesting with each book and TAMING THE FIRE is pure liquid nitrogen. The sexual tension between these two made me squirm in my seat even as I was rooting for them to trust one another and admit their feelings for each other. If you enjoy a paranormal romance that will have you eager for more, then grab TAMING THE FIRE. It will keep you spellbound even as you close that last page. I look forward to more ACRO stories in the future and hope I don’t have a long wait for them.
