From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann 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.

Louisa’s 4 Blush Review
Wow wow wow is all I can say. The first few chapters of this book just absolutely blew me away. I was not seeing that coming.
This story CONSUMED my life. I was not letting anything or anyone come between me and this book.
Danny and Anne were the story but honestly – every character in this book brought a little something ot the story. The brotherhood of these firefighters was honest and loving and even sometimes funny. I can imagine the lives they have led, what they have seen which makes their friendship more like a family.
This is my FIRST JR Ward book and I have been hounded by friends to read the BDB series and it’s only TBR so when I saw the 2 novellas were available as prequels to the story – I jumped right in and they were HOT! So before jumping into Consumed get free novellas The Wedding from Hell, Part 1: The Rehearsal Dinner and The Wedding from Hell, Part 2: The Reception I felt the heat, desire, the sadness, the fight, the grit, the angst, the action, and mystery while reading. JR Ward is a descriptive writer, I often found myself having a hard time breathing just like that characters did. Fighting to survive and deal with the day-to-day.
Sometimes strength rested not in resistance, but in the release of arms against a foe of one’s own creation.
An action-packed story that I can’t wait to continue with more of these characters in the future.
