From Sylvia Day, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Crossfire novels, comes On Fire, a novella of the Shadow Stalkers--where it's futile to resist arrest or the power of a man with a badge. Just surrender. After all, you look so good in handcuffs...
Every time she opened her mouth, his mind went straight into the gutter...
When Deputy US Marshal Jared Cameron started investigating a series of arson attacks in the small seaside town of Lion's Bay, he had no idea that the biggest blast of heat would come from the fire inspector. Her name was Darcy Michaels--and if there was anyone that Jared wanted to get down and sweaty with, it was Darcy.
Darcy knew what she was bringing out in Jared. In fact, she liked it. She reveled in making his dirty dreams come true. Stripped down for a scorching after-hours affair, Jared was her fantasy, too. A hard-driving man who knew exactly what to do to please her. But as hot as their nights were, they had no idea just how wild it was going to get. Because Darcy has a secret. And a past. And it's drawing them right into the flames...
On Fire was originally published July 2012 in the trade paperback anthology Hot in Handcuffs by Berkley Sensation Trade.
Sylvia Day is the national bestselling, award-winning author of over a dozen novels written across multiple sub-genres — contemporary, fantasy, historical, futuristic, science fiction, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy — under multiple pen names: three! A wife and mother of two, she is a former Russian linguist for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence.
Sylvia is a lifelong California resident who loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her to Japan, Holland, Germany, France, Mexico, Jamaica, and all over the United States. Born in Los Angeles, she grew up in Orange County (the O.C.), and later lived in Monterey, Oceanside, and the Temecula Valley.
She is a Japanese-American who enjoys the many Japanese cultural events in Southern California as well as frequent family jaunts to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and Sea World. Her childhood career aspirations were few — become a dolphin trainer at Sea World or a bestselling novelist. Obviously, the dolphin trainer career took a back seat.
A year after she first sat down at the keyboard, Sylvia sold her first book to Kensington Brava and three years later—to the day—she sold her 15-17th single title books. In addition to her novels, she's written numerous novellas and short stories for both print and electronic-original release. Called "wonderful and passionate" by WNBC.com and "wickedly entertaining" by Booklist, Sylvia's stories are frequent recipients of Readers' Choice and Reviewers' Choice accolades. Her work has been translated into Russian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. She's been honored with the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award, the EPPIE award, and multiple finalist nods for Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award of Excellence.
A voracious reader, Sylvia still manages to keep up with her two young children. She's blessed with an understanding husband who is proud of her writing and doesn't mind (too much) that her computer sees her more often than he does.
