Who doesn't love a good romance every once and a while. How about one that has a little murder mystery/suspense to it. If that is what you are looking for then here is your book. Slow Burn is the first book of The Fitzgerald Series. Here is a story of love and betrayal involving the rich and the mob. Ashley is a character that has a tragic past which cost her the lives of her parents. All she wants to do is paint and end the nightmares that plague her of the night her parents died. Having no memory of that terrible night, Ashley thinks her mind is trying to tell her what happened. When Ron Noble, son of the man who caused the fire that killed her parents, contacts her for help regarding that night, Ashley wants nothing to do with him. Not taking no for an answer, Ron shows up on her door step with no intention of leaving until she says yes, even if he has to seduce her to do so. That shouldn't be hard since Ashley can't keep her eyes or hands off him. Ron has no interest in a relationship but something about Ashley changes his mind, no only if he can get her to agree. When Ron and Ashley start working together to find out the truth of that night, they put many friends and family in danger from someone who just wants the past forgotten. Danger lurks around every corner in this romantically intense story that will have you turning pages until the very end.
