Silver Fire (Guardians, #2)

I’m halfway through Silver Fire and have mapped out the rest of the chapters, and let me tell you, it’s just as action-packed as Fire and Ice. Expected publishing date: November 2013.


What if you hold the blueprint to a device that can destroy an entire city?
Sophie Marie Leroux is a genius nuclear physicist who runs Silver Fire Research, a laboratory that has developed the technology to enrich Zefinium—an element so versatile, it can be used as an infinite power source. It is also rumored to be an alternative to weaponized plutonium. Certain factions want to see that research buried, and the only way to make it happen is to get rid of Sophie. But greed has brought out sinister forces who may just coerce her into building the most lethal weapon since the nuclear bomb.
Derek Lockwood has avoided commitment all his life. His past involvements in high-risk missions with the Army Special Forces and Artemis Guardian Services (AGS) are not exactly building blocks for meaningful relationships. Now as an executive for a defense company, he finds himself attracted to his new business partner—an angel with a mind like Einstein—Sophie may be the one woman who may just have him forsake all others.
However, behind Sophie’s brilliant mind lurks a dark past, and Derek will need all his intellectual and sensual expertise to break through her emotional minefield.


This may or may not go into the book, but sigh, I do love writing Derek’s lines.
“Are you deaf?” Sophie cried. “We’re done.”
“No, we’re not.” Derek shot back evenly. “You’re the one shutting me out now. I messed up. One time. Angel, I will fuck up again. You will fuck up. We do not walk away from each other.” He yanked her back into his arms and said thickly, “Baby, after you gave me all of you last night, I’m not fucking giving it back. I’m not letting you go.”
