“Ms Dahl delivered what she is known for; writing small town romance filled with humor, hot scenes and swoon worthy heroes. ” ~ Under the Covers

Fanning the Flames is a great introduction to Ms. Dahl’s new series, Jackson Girl’s Night Out. Ms Dahl delivered what she is known for; writing small town romance filled with humor, hot scenes and swoon worthy heroes.

After years of being divorced, Lauren never expected to have another relationship and after Jake widowed, he never thought he could have feelings for another woman again, but Ms. Dahl had given them another chance at happiness. Their story is short, sweet and down to the point.

This prequel was such an enjoyable read. Lauren plays the role of the uptight Librarian but on the contrary she is dying to get out of her uptight shell. And Jake, well,l he’s a fire chief who is well built, well endowed and runs with his shirt off. He is sweet, manly and goes after what he wants in life. Need I say more? These two have known each other and now, they will have the chance to act on their attraction for each other. They made me laugh at the silly situations they are in and the fact that the situations can happen to anyone made me laugh even more.

Per Dahl, via her website, this series is set in the same time and place as her original Jackson series. She even mentioned that the characters from that series may make appearances. I wish I knew to look out for them. I enjoyed that series and I would’ve love to see the cameos. I will definitely be on the look out for them in the next installment, Looking for Trouble which will release July 29th, 2014.

About Victoria Dahl

I have my mother to thank for my passion for writing. My mom is an avid reader of popular fiction, and I began reading highly inappropriate books around the age of eleven, I think. (Thanks, Mom, for always leaving those delicious books strewn about!)

To Tempt a Scotsman, a Golden Heart winning historical, was my first published book. Here I am signing the cover! A Rake's Guide to Pleasure (which was excerpted at the back of Scotsman) is my second.

Due to my all-around goofiness, my agent suggested I also try my hand at a contemporary romantic comedy. Boy, is my agent smart! I had a great time writing Talk Me Down, the story of a young woman who goes back to her small hometown in Colorado and causes a huge stir with her secretive career and her burgeoning relationship with the chief of police. Not only did I have a great time writing it, but Tara Parsons at HQN liked it too! So if you like cold weather, hot sex and dirty jokes, be sure to check out Talk Me Down (out in January 2009).

Speaking of cold weather, my family and I live in a beautiful ski town in
Utah. No, I don't ski. I prefer to sit inside with a hot toddy and a good
book while the snow falls. It's especially beautiful to watch when from the inside!

I have a wonderful husband and children, and the house is kind of crowded, what with the dukes, Scotsmen, police chiefs, and naughty ladies running around, but my family is very understanding about my imaginary friends. Good thing, since they refuse to leave!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
