Gage Halloran is a widower who lost his spouse to a horrific arsonist who targeted Gage specifically. He took an extended leave from the ATF after the trial that convicted this killer/arsonist.

When Gage's former partner brings him a copy of a recent arson case that Tess is working on he is immediately struck by the signature being the same as the Flamemaster that he put behind bars. Gage hops on a plane and heads to South Carolina, without being asked. Tess first meets him at the scene of the most recent Flamemaster fire and is taken back by his strong, egotistical, superior personality along with his sexual innuendo conversations. But, she is also drawn to him for the same reasons, something that hasn't happened since her fiance; was killed. Add this to the fact that he thinks the new fires are related to the one that killed her fiance and she finds herself teaming up with him, even when she finds out he isn't still an active ATF agent.

Things are heating up for the pair. When they travel to California to talk to the Flamemaster in jail it gives them the time to be alone together and let their sexual tensions play out. It is also the opportunity for the Flamemaste that is in SC to booby-trap Tess's house which causes a huge fire, and destroys her house, when they are back in SC. Tess and Gage are now on a race against time to determine the identity of the Flamemaster that is plaguing SC before they kill Tess and more people she cares for, including Gage.
