Steele by Erin Bevan is NOW LIVE!!!
Hometown firefighter, Blake Steele is living day by day, desperately trying to ease his guilt about his haunted past. When the beautiful Mary Franks moves in next-door, the conflict between what he knows in his head and what he feels in his heart suddenly becomes his most important struggle.
For Mary, living next door to a firefighter should be comforting, except her new neighbor continues to make a nuisance of himself by insisting on helping her—with everything. Despite her efforts, she can’t help but fall for him the more he hangs around. But love isn’t something Mary has time for. She has two goals: raising her son and hiding her illegal activities to keep her son safe.
When Mary’s ex is granted parole and fights to get his son back, she relies on Blake for support. But, as Blake uncovers the lies she’s kept, he is forced to face his own past to protect their futures before both of their lives go up in flames. Literally.

After escaping her ex all Mary wants is a new beginning for her and her son Nathanial (Bear). She is determined to show that she is a good mother and that she doesn’t need any help however her sexy neighbor Blake doesn’t seem to be getting the message.
Blake is a protector at heart which is evidenced by his career as a fireman and that he is a member of the Blue Guardians. He has a painful past of his own so even though she rebuffs she doesn’t want any help he isn’t going to stop.
With her ex being released from prison both she and her son are in danger and Blake is determined to keep them safe but will the secrets between them destroy everything?
I really enjoyed these two characters as they have both endured so much and it has made them stronger and Bear is a scene stealer. Neither was looking for a relationship but sometimes fate has other plans.
