When Knox Wellington opens the door to Charlie Davenport, he’s not expecting the fiery brunette with whiskey colored eyes and a feisty personality. Sparks fly immediately, even though their initial meeting is nothing but hostile. Their chemistry is undeniable, but the chip on Knox’s shoulder threatens to destroy any hope of him wooing the sweet, southern volunteer sent to help with his rehabilitation.
Little does he know she’s no Southern Belle, as she gives as good as she can take. As unexpected circumstances push them closer together, heads butt, patience is tested, and flames ignite as they dance around their mutual attraction, both of them jaded from broken pasts.
They’ve both been burned before, so when their feelings of lust, desire, and wanting are inflamed in the heat of the moment, will they finally be able to get over the pain of the past or will their relationship be reduced to ashes before it can ever really begin?
So, I just finished this book by Tessa Teevan called Incinerate. I know I’m late to the party since most of friends have read and fell in love with this book. Fortunately for me and for those who haven’t read Incinerate yet, Tessa Teevan is re-releasing it along with two bonus scenes.
But that’s not all. Incinerate will be available to all readers at a special price for three days, which means you can purchase it for only $0.99.
Okay. Enough, yay-ing. I’ve actually finished the book but I haven’t had the time to review it. But just so you know, I liked it very much and I love, LOVED Knox. I personally love grumpy heroes who are really sweet and softties on the inside and Knox perfectly embodies those qualities.
He’s a wounded vet who came home to recuperate from his wounds and meets Charlie, our heroine. Charlie is a volunteer who came to help Knox as he recovers. They started off on a wrong foot, which was exacerbated mostly by Knox’s hot and cold attitude towards Charlie. But then they got to know each other and heated looks were exchange and then, BAM! You get the picture.
♥ excerpt ♥
“Sorry, sweetheart, but you’re going to have to hit a lot harder than that to leave a mark on my skin,” he prods, further irritating me, causing me to ball my hand into a fist again, ready to accept his challenge.
“Let’s get a couple of things straight here, asshole. First of all, when I introduced myself to you last night, did I say, ‘Hey, sexy, I’m Charlotte. I want a good fuck and you look just like the guy to give it to me’? Well, did I?” I ask, seething with anger as he hesitates to answer me. Sure, I may have thought about his lips on my skin, but I never would’ve gone home with him on the first night, no matter what Lucy advised me to do.
He blinks at me, looking from my fist to my face. “Uh…no?”
“Exactly, so you can forget that whole part of your argument, but thank God you’re so fucking noble that you won’t sleep with another man’s woman. Seriously. Fucking kudos. I’ll have to get you a cookie for that.” He snorts, and I glare at him, shutting him up. “So second of all, did you ever ask if I have a boyfriend? Not that it should matter to you since you blew me off when I simply told you my name, but did you ever ask if I had a boyfriend?”
Again, I get a blank stare before he lets out another, “No.”
“So then ask me.”
He clears his throat before he asks the question. “Charlotte, do you have a boyfriend?”
Giving him a sweet smile that’s still laced with venom, I answer him. “No, Knox, for your information, I do not have a boyfriend. I did, however, have a fiancé until a couple of months ago. It looks like we have one thing in common. I, like you, cannot stand cheaters.”
About the Author

She lives just outside of Dayton, Ohio and has been married to her own book boyfriend for nine years.
If she’s not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find her curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. Her other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Stone Sour.
