From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Anne Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm.

With a strong ensemble of characters and a well-written plot. J.R. Ward newest series Firefighters takes into a world of betrayal. Starting off the series we are introduced to a strong female character who is Consumed. Anne Ashburn who was on her way of building her own legacy as a firefighter, when one bad decision at a warehouse fire changes her life and set her on a new career path. Her first assignment to find the person or person responsible for setting the warehouse fires. The Anne’s investigation led her to betrayal at the highest proportions. I love J.R. Ward’s “Black Dagger Brotherhood” series. So, when I had the opportunity to read her newest book in a brand-new series about Firefighters. I thought why not. By the end of chapter one, I knew this wasn’t going to be one of J.R. Ward’s normal romance that I was used too. Though Consumed was dark at times, the story was entertaining from start to finish. Consumed, the first novel in J.R. Ward newest series and a fantastic start to the Firefighters series. A definite must-read for any fans of J.R. Ward and or fans of mystery suspense, thriller romance.
