** Release Blitz / Book Review / Giveaway ** SPARKING THE FIRE by Kate Meader



Another fun, drama filled story of the Dempsey family of Engine Co. 6!  This is a great family and I’ve enjoyed their stories so much.  Always a sexy hot read, with lots of family depth and humor thrown in!

Scandalized Hollywood actress Molly Cade needs her latest film to go off without a hitch to earn back some respect for her tainted career!  She wants every aspect of her action flick to be precise, so she is working with the best firehouse around to make it happen.

Sexy loner Wyatt Fox needs something to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest hot-headed recovery stunt at the firehouse, so his Lieutenant sets him up to be the expert consultant on the movie set of an upcoming movie.  He’s trying to get out of it until he realizes it’s a Cade Productions film.  Molly Cade and he once burned up the sheets in a week long anonymous fling, so he can’t pass up the chance to see her again!

Praise for Sparking the Fire, Book 3:

“The tale of hot firefighters and the women—and one man—who love them has come to an end. Meader ends this series with role playing, fierce family loyalty and multiple orgasms. The male protagonist goes through a transformation that showcases his vulnerability, insecurities, possessiveness and protectiveness. The many instances of a family sticking together through it all are more than enough to tug on the heart strings, but the steamy sex and sentimental pillow talk make this book a must-read.”

RT Book Reviews Four Star Review, Scorcher

“Can a firefighter and a movie star really make it work? Meader (Rekindle the Flame, 2015) immerses you in Wyatt’s tight-knit family of foster siblings that she’s built throughout the Hot in Chicago series, and readers will feel like part of the family in no time. Her descriptions of Chicago will leave fans wanting to travel to the Windy City and fall in love with their own firefighters.”



About Sparking the Fire, Book 3:

Heating up reading lists this Fall will be Kate Meader’s highly anticipated Sparking the Fire, the “sexy and sassy” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux) steamy third novel in the Hot in Chicago series, where former lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, “Quiet on the set!”


Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Company 6, needs a low key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. But then in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.


Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back into the big time. And she’s not going to let anything stand in her way—even a certain brooding, blue-eyed firefighter she’s never quite been able to forget…Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…



About the Author:

Kate Meader was raised on romance. An Irish girl, she started with Catherine Cookson and Jilly Cooper novels, and spiced it up with some Mills & Boon. Now based in Chicago, she writes romances of her own, where sexy contemporary alpha heroes and strong heroines match each other quip for quip. When not immersed in tales of brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, Kate lives on the web at katemeader.com.

  1. I have not read this author, but this new book sounds fun.

    • She’s got a whole series of firefighters Sue. Really great group of people that play out throughout the series. Super sexy too! 🙂

  2. I haven’t read any of her books yet, but the Hot in Chicago series sounds great.

  3. I’m pretty new to this genre– what took me so long!?– and I think that today marks my first day really looking through this author’s books on Amazon. The “Hot in Chicago” series is at the top of my wish list now!
    True story: I’ve never seen the TV show “Chicago Fire,” but where I previously lived [in Chicago] there was a large, never-used parking lot next to my apartment building. When the show was filming in the area, the crew would get permits from the city and use up the lot. Nothing really “special,” but somewhat interesting. 🙂
