Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

Six years ago, our paths crossed in a most serendipitous way: through online role play. As funny as it may sound, we were “married/mated” by the group’s owner and from day one, we knew we just clicked. After a few months of writing some pretty hot fanfiction, we decided it was time to write about our own characters. Without a second thought, we embarked on this (crazy) joint writing adventure and Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey were born. Since then, we have written 15 books in our Countermeasure Series (Romantic Suspense), and a novella in the A.W.E. Crew Series (Military Romance) published in Desiree Holt’s Omega Team Kindle World and plan to write our own brand of hot & spicy romance for many years to come. You can find out more about us and our books here:

Deanndra Hall

Deanndra Hall writes stories in a world she knows well, with characters that are as fun, kinky, and crazy as she is. Although she’s an international bestselling author, she works and lives in far western Kentucky with her partner of 30+ years and three crazy little dogs. She’s written for business, industry, religious institutions, non-profits, and owned her own graphic design business, as well as working as a fiber and textile artist. Her personal best was 26,000 words in one day, but she advises against that – it took her the next three days to pry her swollen eyes open. When she’s not writing, she can be found working out at the local gym, hiking, kayaking, reading (of course), or working on a healthy recipe. And wherever she is, chocolate is sure to be nearby.

Former Hawks running back Rafe Ortiz has a few rules of his own. First, no weaknesses. Second, no babysitting spoiled football princesses.

About the Book

five_alarmFeeding the Flames ~ Leah Breamel

When chef Tabatha Morgan returns to Barnett Springs, her burning crush on firefighter Zac Buchanan flares back to life. Trouble is, Zac has made a promise to keep his distance from Tabby, so Zac’s best friend and fellow firefighter Quinn decides to help feed the flames of their mutual desire.

Combustible ~ Lexxie Couper

Arson investigator, Desmond Russell is the best in Australia. Cool, calm and collected, nothing ruffles him. Until he meets Outback fire brigade captain, Jess Montgomery, a woman who ignites all his sexual desires. The initial spark will engulf them both…but will their hearts survive the inferno?

Wet Down ~ Delilah Devlin

Out with the old, in with the new…Or so Sherry Thacker thinks. Problem is, her ex is always on her mind and right across the street. When a “Wet Down” ceremony to retire an old fire truck is planned by the city council she has to put aside her hurt and anger and do her job. Blake Thacker wants his wife back—in every way and he’ll use whatever means necessary to win her back. Sex is always best served WET.

Two to Spark ~ Marie Harte

When a psychic predicts that a faulty toaster, a black cat, and the wrong address will bring Cooper together with Ms. Right, he shrugs off the notion as crazy. But before long, fate has something else in store for the sexy firefighter when a spark of attraction ignites into true love.

Controlled Burn ~ Desiree Holt

Montana Wade was home after writing off the past ten years of her life, but she needed one more night of courage before she faced her family. Boone Crider, hotshot firefighter, was burned out form the rash of malicious fires. They thought one night as strangers would cure them both, but the fire they started between them soon became a barely controlled burn.

Up In Smoke ~ Lissa Matthews

Half-brothers, Josh and Jay, share everything from a house, to a love of curvy, older women. So when their dream woman accidentally sets her kitchen on fire, they ride to her rescue, sirens blaring, promising to kindle flames that may never be extinguished.

Rekindled ~ Cari Quinn

Some blazes refuse to be contained. It’s been months since ex-firefighter Katie Kemp has spoken to her former lover and squad mate, Dash Carlton. But when a late night drive down memory lane leads her to a small fire at Dash’s house, she realizes she’s not willing to turn her back on the hottest flame of her life.

Into the Fire ~ Shelli Stevens

Shannon has always prided herself on holding her own in the male dominated field of firefighting. She likes to be in control. Until she strikes a bargain with a sexy man from her past who makes her give it all up in the bedroom.

While we want as many people to enjoy this collection of original novellas as possible, it is intended for mature readers, 18 years of age and older.

Was it easier to write your story knowing about the concept beforehand or was this a story you had already thought about writing?

I had been fiddling around with the characters in Feeding the Flames for a couple years now; I’d actually started writing their story 2 years ago but put it aside when my Carina Press editor contacted me to write The Grady Legacy series. So having some time to let them form in my head made them easier to write this time around.

What inspired you to write about these particular characters? What was the deciding factor in choosing their story for this Anthology?

Because I’d been thinking about these characters for so long and since both Quinn and Zac were firefighters, they were an obvious choice when Lexxie contacted me and said she was putting together a firefighter bundle. I suspect they telepathically contacted her when I met her in Kansas City last year. 😉

What’s your favorite line from your story?

 “Makin’ out with a woman is a lot more romantic in a bed than in the front seat of your truck, I promise.”

Give us the inside scoop on another author in the anthology. (Share a “secret” or funny story)

Lexxie Cooper, Shelli Stevens and I had breakfast together in New Orleans during the RT Booklovers’ convention to discuss the anthology but since Lexxie is from Australia, Shelli from the US, and I’m from Canada, we ended up discussing the different types of bacon each of our countries use. Now everytime I eat bacon I think of Shelli and Lexxie.

Would you consider doing this type of collaboration again?

Yes, it’s nice to have the support of a group of authors of a variety of experiences and finding out we have so much in common.

What’s up next for you?

I’m finishing up WRANGLING THE PAST, the final book in my contemporary western series THE GRADY LEGACY, and repackaging and release some formerly published short stories – CHERRY COTTAGE, FIRST NIGHT, and UNASHAMED.  After that’s done, I’m getting back to writing the next book in my HAUBERK PROTECTION romantic suspense series. (So many stories to write, so little time!)

Does music play any type of role in your writing?

I often create a playlist to listen to while I’m writing, especially for my western stories. And if music isn’t playing then I have background sounds – using apps like Relax Melodies by Ipsos Soft or Calm.com to help prod my creative side.

When you start a book, do you already have the whole story in your head or is it built progressively?

It’s different with every book. Some characters, like Sam Watson of PRIVATE PROPERTY (http://bit.ly/1tMoZUQ) and PERSONAL PROTECTION (http://bit.ly/1qGYzRm) , or Sarah, Jackson and Nate, the characters from TANGLED PAST (http://bit.ly/1q68bqM) , walk into my head fully formed and sit down and dictate their story. Other times, the stories are built progressively—where I start telling the story thinking it’s going to go off in one direction until a character does something I wasn’t expecting and realize he knows better and I build the story from there. I’ve tried plotting meticulously but generally by the end of the first page, the story has already taken off in another direction, so I guess as much as I want to call myself a plotter, I also write by the seat of my pants on occasion.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Sometimes I have a main character, like Gabe in my upcoming release WRANGLING THE PAST, who, like most men, is not a big talker. The trouble is, I need him to talk to me, to tell me his story so I can do his character justice. So writing an alpha male who doesn’t want to co-operate can be very challenging. Okay, I know there are non-writers thinking that sounds overly dramatic, and there are those who say “there is no muse, you just have to push through” and they’re (somewhat) right, but it really helps make writing easier for me if the characters are cooperative instead of being stubborn and saying “that’s not what I’d do” or “I want to do that instead” or worse, “grr, not talking to you anymore.”  The other challenging thing for me in a romance is to not let the outside plot overpower the romance angle. I love writing romantic suspenses, but I have to keep reminding myself that my readers are more interested in the romance and the sexual tension than the outside plot – because I often find in my first drafts I concentrate more on the outside plot and realize at the end there’s very little about the romance and then have to start all over again.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?

If a reader wants to know more about my books, they can visit my website (http://bit.ly/1o6z7If) or look me up on Goodreads ( http://bit.ly/1iXjNMa  ). But if they want to see what I’m visualizing about the locations my books take place in, or how I visualize a character, then they can visit my Pinterest boards (http://bit.ly/1kLL0yc ) If they’re in Canada, I’m going to be attending Bookapalooza in Oshawa Ontario, November 22nd, and April 2015 I’ll be at Romancing the Capital in Ottawa. (more information can be found on my website). I will probably be attending more conferences such as Lori Foster’s Reader and Author Get Together next year but those aren’t open for registration yet.

lexxie couper

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.

When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.

Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.
