Melt with You
A Summerville Novel
Fire and Icing Book One

Some fires never burn out…

After ten years as America’s sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She’s opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she’ll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won’t even speak to her?

When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter’s Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won’t let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him…not that he intends to let her know it. He’ll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again.

But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start?


As Jake climbed up the wooden ladder, those memories flashed on his mental screen. Memories of Naomi in nothing but a bikini top and cut off shorts, swaying back and forth in the hammock while she read their summer reading assignment aloud and Jake puttered with his carving knife, whittling a piece in the chess set he was making her for her birthday. Memories of picnics and evenings spent telling ghost stories and nights spent in the bed they’d made, making love until eleven minutes to midnight, leaving themselves two minutes to get dressed, one to get down the tree to Jake’s truck, and seven to scoot across town to the Whitehouse’s place by Naomi’s curfew.
They were some of his best memories, he realized, and some of the most wonderful moments in his life. For the first time in years, it felt okay to admit that and—when he reached the top of the ladder, meeting Naomi’s gaze across the refuge from the world they had made when they were kids—he knew she felt the same way.
Years had passed, and they had both suffered and celebrated and changed from the people they’d once been, but in each other’s arms they would always be home.
They crossed the room and came together without a word, mouths meeting with enough heat to melt something inside of Jake. As their tongues danced and Naomi’s hands gripped his shoulders as he eased her to the leaf-strewn floorboards, Jake felt all his good intentions fading away.
It might be smarter to wait to be with Naomi, but right now he didn’t care about smart, he only cared that the woman he was falling in love with all over again was in his arms, hooking her leg around his waist as he fisted her skirt in his hand, slowly drawing the silky fabric up to bare her even softer thigh.
