So you know that this book is going to be fiery and just the thing for an icy cold night!
So without delay I bring you Airicka Phoenix and Games of Fire!
Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred of her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn’t sure whether she wants to toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire,
everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.
Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?

Excerpt from Games of Fire
“Will I see you tomorrow?” she asked as they walked up her driveway to the door.
Spencer stopped several feet from the porch and turned to her. “I don’t know.” He smoothed back strands of hair that were caught in the breeze, drifting across her face. “I have to see what Mom’s doing.”
She’d nearly forgotten about the annihilation of their car. “I’ll save you a seat if you do.”
He grinned. “That sounds remarkably like a bribe.”
Sophie laughed. “It might be.”
In a single fluid motion, he closed the space separating them and snaked his arms around her waist, anchoring and pulling her into him. “And what else?”
She raised an eyebrow. “You mean sitting next to me isn’t enough?”
He moved his shoulder in a shrug. “I’m very greedy.”
Warm fingers of electricity rippled down her spine. “What else do you want?”
All traces of playfulness seemed to melt into something primal, something dark and hungry to match the intensity in his eyes. His arms became bands of steel, caging her to him. Lips curved into a smirk worthy of a wolf lowered to hers. “Dangerous words, Blondie.”
Then he kissed her with a greed that made her wish they were back in his room, bodies interlocked on his bed. Every nerve ending in her body sizzled. Her toes curled. She was burning and melting and needing him to keep her up. She was about to ask him if he wanted to try and sneak into her room when the night was torn by a sharp pop that seemed to come from nowhere and everywhere. In her arms, Spencer jerked. He hissed in pain as he clutched at his right thigh.
About the Author
Airicka Phoenix is the author of The Touch Series and has short stories in Whispered Beginnings: A Clever Fiction Anthology and Midnight Surrender Anthology. When she’s not hammering away at the keyboard, she can be found banishing pirates or crawling through the attic looking for lost treasure with her kids. She loves baking, gardening and reading. She also likes to travel and take pictures of everything she comes across. When asked, Airicka describes herself as a sarcastic basket case that has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, old movies and really bad jokes. She loves to laugh, make friends and write. If she could have one wish granted, it would be to spend one day as a fly-on-the-wall inside Stephen King’s mind. If she could have two wishes granted, she would ask for a castle dedicated entirely to her overwhelming collection of books.
