Ignite: Volume 2
Can love ignite a soul darkened by vengeance?
Life is beyond different as the girlfriend of a retired superhero, but to Emmalina Crist, the reward of loving Reece Richards is worth the cost. But when she comes across proof that Reece has been hiding a significant secret from her, their relationship is irrevocably rocked.
Reece might have hung up his crime-fighting leathers, but he’s continued dancing with danger by working covertly with ex-FBI hotshot Sawyer Foley to learn more about the Consortium—and how they can beat the sadistic scientists at their own game. While Reece denies revenge as his motivation for the hunt, he’s forced to reexamine his motivations when Sawyer brings a questionable ally into their inner circle—and a distraught Emma finds out.
Now, Reece has never been closer to unveiling the Consortium—but at what cost? His honor? His life? And what about the woman who has helped him redefine both? Is he willing to let Emma go in the name of vengeance? Or will their love be the light his soul truly needs?
Driven apart by fear… Reunited by danger…
Though it’s tearing him up, Reece Richards is determined to honor his woman’s wishes for some time alone in New York to work with the nonprofit organization she now leads—until a secret missive from the Consortium changes everything, forcing him to fly to the Big Apple in the name of protecting Emmalina Crist from those who wish to do her harm.
His plans on watching over her from afar are blown apart when her life is threatened—but even though he’s in exactly the right place at the right time, she’s not happy to see the man she left on the West Coast so she could get some clarity.
Now, her perspective is more jumbled than ever. She loves Reece, but doubts from her past and confusion about the present form a wall around her heart, making her wonder if she’s strong enough to be with a man—a superhero—like him on a long-term basis. Though their bodies burn for each other, is the bond of their souls just as formidable? Or is she the weak link in Reece’s armor that he can’t afford?
Trying to catch lightning in a bottle, they’ve messed with the wrong Bolt…
When a night of celebration goes horrifyingly awry, Reece Richards has to call upon a team of elite operatives to help him chase down the bastards who have taken his woman—and ripped out his heart.
But this ops mission is anything but one of their ordinary runs. The woman who holds Emmalina in her clutches also holds the key to a big chunk of Reece’s mysterious past—a hell he must face again in his bargain for Emma’s life. Only by latching his heart to Emma’s, and trusting in the connection of their love, will he be able to get her out of the ordeal alive—a demand that takes its toll on him in ways he hasn’t experienced.
What happens when Reece and Emma’s most frightening challenge is no longer those who are hunting them? What can a superhero do when he’s the biggest danger to the woman he loves? And what will that woman do to save them both from that hell?
