Why I read this: I’m LOVING this series.
Surrender to vows.
Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin has come a long way since being turned into a metahuman, and all he wants to do is marry the man he loves. A wedding is easy, but it’s the honeymoon where his past unexpectedly catches up with him.
A future together.
All Agent Sean Delaney wanted was a romantic honeymoon with his new husband. When he and Alexei stumble into a fellow operative’s mission on the luxury gambling resort island Fortuna-sur-mer, they get more than they bargained for in their newly minted civilian lives.
Destined to burn.
Forced to choose between staying and joining the mission or leaving to stay safe and postpone their honeymoon, Alexei and Sean make the only decision they can – to fight.
Fire in the Heart is a 28,000-word novella that takes place after New Horizons in the Metahuman Files: Classified series. Listening to the prior books is not necessary to enjoy this one.
What happens when two metahumans from Alpha Team want to get married? Well, chaos and mayhem, of course. The story begins with the bachelor party and all the members of Alpha Team are there. We move to the wedding and everything is progressing smashingly. But I knew it couldn’t last.
Jamie is paying for the men’s honeymoon on a luxury gambling resort named Fortuna-sur-mer. And everything looks to be hunky dory until Liam shows up. Yep, that Liam. The metahuman from Britain whose grandmother is the Queen of England. He shows up with Oliver from MI6 and I realized this was the set-up for the next book where the two men will, so to speak, square off. Anyway, Liam arrives on the scene with news there’s a terrorist on the island. Well, of course there is. So, as I said, chaos and mayhem ensue. But in the mess, Alexei and Sean come even closer together. Their bond solidifies. They are a true team. And Alexei makes a bet Oliver and Liam will get together.
I enjoyed this novella as it brought my two favorite characters even closer together. I mean, they had a mirror brought to their room. Sexy times indeed. I’ll mention Greg Boudreaux’s narration. He was made for this series and always hits just the right note. That and his accents are brilliant. So a good palate cleanser between the big books and definitely worth a listen.
