Book Description

An adventurous blend of love, power, greed, and personal conviction, Ring of Fire reminds us things aren’t always as they seem.

When rare, violet-gray diamonds are discovered at Alexandra McAlister's clean-energy research site on a small South Pacific island, the reclusive scientist suddenly finds herself plagued by greedy gem hunters. To make matters worse, the island's government is threatening to revoke her permits so they can capitalize on the find.

Fresh from a confrontation with an annoyingly attractive government official, Alex happens upon a girl in danger. Instinct takes over and she rescues the girl, only to find out she is the island's princess, and the annoying official is her guardian, Daniel!

Alex finds herself thrust into a situation where she has to protect not only her life's work, but also her life itself and that of the precocious teenage princess she grows to love. Daniel appears to be their only chance at survival – if they can learn to get along. Undercover and acting the part of a loving family, they work to find out who is pursuing them and what it is they’re after, only to realize their relationship may not be an act after all.

Editorial Reviews


"The book fairly sizzles with sexual tension. Sizzles and crackles. When you put this book down, you just can't wait to pick it up again...So if you want a read to make you sigh and keep you on the edge of your seat, pick this one. The characters are well drawn and one of the wonderful features of this particular novel is the humor, which literally bubbles over from time to time. In fact, I laughed out loud in several places." - Romancing the Book

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Romance PLUS a bit Educational! March 12, 2012
By khale
Okay, forgive my indulgence, but with a title like RING OF FIRE you cannot escape the thought of Johnny Cash singing the song of the same title. Heather Huffman brings a veritable roller coaster of highs and lows in this awesome modern day romance. Not only do you have gorgeous women and "Greek god" men who fall all over each other to avoid falling in love - but you also have a great subplot of political and industrial intrigue and in the midst of it - a few gruesome murders too.

Alexandra McAlister is a scientist buried deep within her volcano cave on the small island of Tuwanga in the South Pacific. Just as she thinks she is getting closer to making headway on her much worked for and awaited project, things come to a screeching halt and she finds herself swept away by a man she detests and a beautiful young princess she finds herself loving and wanting to protect. With her entire team dead or in jeopardy she knows she has no option BUT to follow Daniel "Joey" Martin wherever he thinks is safest. Following her newly appointed "protector" realizes quickly the ruse of being a happy family could easily come true - if only they would both let go and follow their heart instead of their mind.

Between the gun wielding thugs, the geek speak and the simmering romance that finally blossoms, I found this to be a book worthy of 5 stars. Huffman brings out a lot of great current issues regarding our Nation's economic situation and the energy problems affecting our environment, but it flows well within the story and doesn't make it overwhelming or boring. The few parts where "geek speak" was obvious where some of my favorites - as I am total closet dork/geek/nerd.

** spoiler alert **

This is the first time I have read one of Heather Huffman's books and it's safe to say I am definitely hooked.

This book is a good old fashioned love story. Of course things do not happen straight away between Alex and Daniel, the reader is left to wonder "will they? won't they?" but this only kept me more interested and engaged in the story.

Like any good love story I was left hopelessly in love with Daniel and quite envious of Alex.

I loved the character of Lani, she is an adorable little character and fits into Daniel and Alex's story quite well, if it wasn't for her presence I don't think they would not have pursued their romantic interest in each other.

I loved the fact Alex is such a strong independent woman and Daniel was perhaps one of the few men who could actually protect her.

When they finally 'get it on' I felt like giving them a round of applause and I thought "about time".

Romance aside there were some really gritty parts in the book, when Chad was shot it left me feeling quite shocked and it left me worried whilst reading the rest of the story in case Alex lost her life.

I also thought the part where Alex went for breakfast alone and was nearly kidnapped was brilliantly written, my heart was pounding until Jackson came to her rescue.

I loved the ending to the book, it did have a very happy ending and it did finish how the reader would hope but I don't think I could have faced Alex, Daniel or Lani to be killed off.

I rate this book a very strong 4 stars and I would love to read more of Heather Huffman's books soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ring of Fire September 6, 2012
By joelene
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this very much, thought it was a quick read. Once I started I had to find out if they ended up together and if they saved the princess. I loved how they fought with eachother, yet knew they were attrated and wanted to be together. I would and will recommend this to everyone. I loved the secret spy like story and the science like part to the storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the read December 30, 2012
By conniek
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book and the story-line. The characters were well done and the story held together. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was that some of the events seemed contrived and some were never explained. How did the bad guys find them so easily at some times, and didn't find them when they were "out on the town"? The book could have been fleshed out more, with more of what was going on at the island and some of the other events explained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mystery and love story November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was on a road trip when I read this book and from the moment the girl ran and hid in the back of the jeep I was sucked it. Great mystery that leaves you full of suspense and a love story that leaves you wondering what is going to happen next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad September 21, 2012

This book was ok. I didn't like it nearly as much as I liked her other book, Jailbird. I know it's fiction, but there are parts that aren't quite believable.
