In Linda Howard's Burn, she took us on a wild cruise ride that was destined for destruction. Jenner Redwine worked at a meat packing plant, before she won the lottery which changed everything in a blink of an eye. From there, she moved to Florida from Chicago and made new friends and a new life. But when she boarded that cruise, she didn't know what she was in for, when she met Cael Traylor and his crew. Kidnapped and threatened, she was Cael's cover to be his lover. This was when he was doing surveillance on a potential homegrown terrorist of his own. On both sides of the coin, they butted heads and sparks flew.  They did get underneath each other's skin, until they fall in love for real, when danger loomed behind them from a sick and dying man on a sinking cruise ship. We saw how Jenner clawed her way out of this one and found true love, while Cael softened up his fa├žade on a nasty cruise ride to Hawaii. It was up to them to jump ship before it's too late. What an explosive novel.

This was a hot and steamy romantic suspense. I did care about Jenner, especially when her friends treated her like dirt, like when she won the lottery.  There were nothing but sour grapes in my opinion.  I liked the concept on doing it on the cruise ship for the main location and setting for this novel, too. I also loved the dual locations of Chicago and southern Florida as well. This would steam up your window and leave you swooning in the end of this novel. Great drama, terrific non-stop action with plenty of romance and suspense to heat up a cold day.
