Upcoming Release from Lydia Parks in a Fire Fighters Anthology

Lydia Parks announces the upcoming release of SMOLDERING LUST -- one of a three-book anthology about fire fighters titled FEEL THE HEAT -- from Kensington Aphrodisia.

FEEL THE HEAT will be released on May 31st, and is available on pre-order from Amazon.  [Click here to read more.]

Local girl Hannah Hayward has made a name for herself in the mayor's office. But when her town's new fire chief turns out to be bad boy Lee Evans, back after fourteen years and looking even sexier than she remembers, she's got more to worry about than his budget requests. He's too good to believe...and too hot to deny.

Other stories in the FEEL THE HEAT anthology include Lorie O'Clare's FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE and P.J. Mellor's HEAT WAVE.  (Paperback, 304 pages.)
