In California, psychic sculptress Summer Starr “sees” the magnetic lines that pulse beneath the earth's mantle and has the uncanny ability to “calm” down the earth. Her brother-in-law worries about her safety from an individual accusing her of being a witch. Summer's in-law hires Michael Forest to protect Summer from this avenging person who blames her for causing the death of his brother.

Michael and Summer are attracted to one another, but she knows she must ignore her feelings, as she believes she must marry someone with psychic abilities to pass on her gift. Michael shares her feelings, but carries baggage that makes him believe he is her inferior and not deserving of someone as magnificent and caring as his client. He also has to consider his beloved's safety as two international thugs want him dead. Michael and Summer try to keep the relationship on a protective level only, but the heart does not always listen to the brain.

A TOUCH OF FIRE is a one sitting paranormal romantic suspense novel that never slows down whether the plot focuses on the romance, the suspense, or the paranormal, or a concurrent combo. The story line moves at a rapid rate yet enables the audience to understand the motives of the lead couple whom insists they're not in love. Though the South American and African thugs provide intrigue, they do not add depth to an already powerful third book in the highly recommended Sons of Earth and Wind paranormal Series (see TEARS OF THE HAWK and A BREATH OF HEATHER) for fans will appreciate a touch of Barbara Clark.
