Firefighter TEAGUE CREEK is not the man he used to
be. Six years ago while on a routine call, a warehouse explosion
left him with burns over eighty percent of his body. When he awoke
in a hospital, his injuries had miraculously healed, leaving him
with the burning question: what really happened in that warehouse?
Subsequent events added to his suspicions: forced separation from
his engine company, interrogation by mysterious military personnel,
restricted visitation with his wife and, ultimately, her suicide.
But the bizarre circumstances didn’t end there. Two years after his
wife’s death, he has been convicted of murdering the first woman he
dated since, incarcerated at San Quentin State Penitentiary and
denied an appeal.
He’s lost the daughter he lived for, Kat,
and the career as a firefighter he loved. Believing the
original warehouse fire is somehow linked to everything that’s
happened since, Teague gives up on the system. Instead of
fighting an invisible enemy, he scrapes together a plan to escape
prison, reclaim Kat and flee to South America.
ALYSSA FOSTER is only two weeks away from attaining
her loftiest goal to date: securing an attending radiologist
position at one of the finest hospitals in the country. Her
success means status, respect and proving her worth to her family.
But Alyssa’s future is forever altered when she is abducted by one
of her forensic patients, Teague Creek. Early on Alyssa
realizes this is no ordinary man. He has a strange ability to
create heat within his body, which he uses to both hurt and heal.

Instead of a bargaining chip to use in exchange for Kat, he’s
saddled with a witness. And she’s picked up on his developing
pyrokenetic abilities. As the two reluctantly grow closer and
she eventually believes his story, a bond emerges between them. And
that bond only strengthens as Alyssa helps Teague both embrace his
powers and demystify their origin.
their trek across California to find Kat, they both find themselves

his ex, KEIRA O’SHAY, also a former firefighter but now one
of the FBIs sharpshooters, Luke and Keira quickly deduce things
aren't what they seem. Thrust into the depths of a conspiracy they’d
suspected, but couldn't prove, they uncover a deeper, darker force
at work, one that is somehow linked to the destruction of their
former firefighting team and the development of strange paranormal
abilities every team member has struggled with since the mysterious
warehouse fire five years before that changed their lives forever.
What neither Luke nor Keira realize, is that their paranormal
abilities are enhanced by the power of their relationship. When
Luke and Keira come back together in BLAZE, their
abilities strengthen, grow and expand. Keira's clairaudience
blossoms with empathetic qualities and even a touch of
clairvoyance. Luke's gifts come back full force and not only is he

And when the shadow agency that has been tracking them decides

to save each other’s as well.

JESSICA FURY once
had everything to live for. Now, she lives for one purpose: revenge.
Five years ago, Jessica
witnessed the death of her newlywed husband, QUAID LEGEND,
when their hazmat firefighting team stumbled upon an illegal
chemical stash in a government warehouse set aflame. Since her
recovery, Jessica has slowly pieced together a plan to implement
payback, and she's just one piece of information away from achieving
that satisfaction when she receives the biggest shock of her life:
Quaid may still be alive.
Recent events involving other members of her team
in BLAZE turn up evidence that Quaid has been held as a
prisoner in a secret military laboratory. Jessica utilizes her scrying
abilities—using an item to view events at a
distance or in the future—to help find and free Quaid from the
custody of the shadow government agency, only to discover that
all the experimental testing he's undergone over the years has wiped
his mind clean, and he has no memory of her.
Utilizing the clustered
paranormal abilities they developed within Quaid, the government
scientists have created a powerful weapon for the U.S. military.
When his former firefighting team rescues him from the secure
government goes on an all-out mission to retrieve what they consider
an extremely valuable element to national security.
With their past shadowed and their future threatened, Jessica and
Quaid face the ultimate battles of freedom--one for life, one for
