It's been a long time coming, but my long awaited (certainly by me ) MMF contemporary erotic romance starring not one, but TWO hot Aussie firemen has been released. Trust me, this one has a bit of everything. One three-alarm night ignites a firestorm of complications… High school teacher Erica Shannon isn’t a one-night stand [...]
