Treachery, dirty rotten scoundrels, jealousy, lost loves reunited, and an unfortunate encounter with a bear trap….. Seize the Flame had everything you’d want in a western romance book and more.
Two most notable sections of the book (for me):
1.) Everything involving the bear trap. Lynda wrote the scenes so well, so vividly, the reader can almost feel Drake’s pain, hear his screams, and see the determination in Jessica’s eyes to not let him down. She faced weather, wolves and her abusive husband, all in the name to save Drake; the man she’ll truly love forever.
2.) Stud poker scene. Jessica and Drake had no money so they improvised in a most fun and sensual manner. Winner of each hand kisses the loser, anywhere, and the loser is forbidden to touch while he/she is receiving the kisses. Yes, there were absolutely no losers in this game. The only thing lost was articles of clothing. Mmm!
Now for the ending (the epilogue), based off the prologue I didn't expect it to end as it did. Maybe you won't either. Only way to know for sure is to buy the book. :)
Drake Adams is a former lawyer and currently a bounty hunter who is on a mission to bring the woman who broke his heart as he stood at the alter in for his next bounty. His life has been one drunken fight after the next since she ran out on him and instantly married another man. The moment he found out that the woman who destroyed him had a bounty for her return, he knew he had to be the one to take her in.
In all honesty, the book started a bit slow. After the first chapter or two, I was really worried that this whole book would be slow. Boy was that a wrong first impression. It didn’t take long for me to grumble every time my work break was over and I had to stop reading to go back to work. More than once I accidentally stayed up until the sun came up while reading at night, so it definitely gets better after a slow start. I enjoyed the unpredictable story line. All romances have a pretty predictable ending, but I like books that keep you guessing at what’s going to happen next, and this book did just that.
This book is great for people who like historical romances, but also readers who prefer an original story. Lynda Cox did an amazing job at incorporating domestic abuse into the story that make it shout awareness and showed the reader that survivors of domestic violence and abuse can survive and live a normal life. That makes me wish I could add another star just for incorporating a hard to discuss subject. For that reason and the fact that this is an amazing book, I gave it 5 out of 5 stars! I’m a big supporter of adding backstories like Jessica's to the main character just to keep things more real.
I would love to read more from Lynda Cox!
