Bitter and wary of men after her husband leaves her for a younger woman, forty-year old ER nurse, Beth Sawyer has decided dating isn’t an option. That is until an arsonist’s fire brings Jackson Stanton—a strong, handsome, twenty-seven-year old fireman—to her trauma unit. Despite loathing the title of “Cougar”, Beth finds her attraction to Jackson too strong to resist.
It seems simple at first—a fun fling with the added bonus of payback to her ex-husband. But the more Beth dates Jackson, the stronger her emotions grow. So, too, does the arsonist’s death toll. When suspicion for the fires lands on Jackson, Beth must determine if the man she’s falling for is out to set her body and heart on fire…or has her marked as his next victim.

Loved this 'cougar' theme novel by a new romance author - this book felt very authentic and believable but was still a fun 'escape' and an enjoyable quick read. I really rooted for the 'cougar' heroine and thought both she and her hot firefighter lover were interesting and believable characters. Story-wise the book had lots of mystery and suspense - the action was not all 'between the sheets.' Some funny dialogue too. Highly recommended!

No Smoke Without A Fire is a fun, engaging, well-crafted love story with the element of suspense. Bobbie Bandy demonstrates her talent for writing as she weaves her tale of a 40 year-old woman, Beth, whose husband left her for a younger woman, and a sexy 27 year-old fireman, Jackson, who finds her extremely hot. The story becomes intriguing as a mystery reveals itself when a series of fires breaks out with Jackson as the main suspect.
The main characters are real and easy to relate to and the heat between them filled with incredible sparks. The story flows as the mystery of the fires unfolds along with the relationship between Jackson and Beth. It is a thoroughly enjoyable read that will hold your attention from beginning to end.
