Dante's Fire by Jennifer Probst

Rating 3/5 stars
Publication Date: August 26, 2014


It’s Time To Meet A New Kind Of Hero...

Dante Stark has a dark secret--a legacy left to him by his father which is both a blessing and a curse. A traumatic experience as a small boy gave him special powers of healing, but it comes with a price. Destined to wander the world alone to heal others, he's accepted his fate. Until Selina Rogers forces him to confront his deepest fears, erotic desires, and question his capacity to love.

Selina Rogers has made a name for herself at Inferno Enterprises. She's tough, confident and prepared to succeed. She's also built a world she believes is safe, until she's attacked and then saved by a masked stranger. As he helps her heal physically and emotionally, she becomes fascinated by his overwhelming power and gentle touch. Determined to show Dante the love he's been denying himself, Selina surrenders her heart, and dreams of a future with the mysterious man who completes her.

But will his dark legacy destroy them...or save them both...


Dante's fire is the first book in a new series by Jennifer Probst. I know, I know, I was also surprised when I found out that a book which I thought was stand alone is actually the first book in a series. Two more books are coming up. At least the main characters will be different.

The book didn't offer me anything special and I thought the story had some rushed parts. I found weird that Dan was in love with Selina for two years and she was a tad attracted to him, but later in the book she falls almost immediately in love with Dante.

Unfortunately, this novella didn't work out 100% for me. Still, I cannot make myself give the book less than three stars because despite all the things I didn't like or didn't work for me, there were some parts that I liked/loved.

It would be comforting to know that someone like Dante exist in real life. For Saline I have mixed feelings. I don't like it when she was forgetting the whole I am attracted to two different males and I should come clean about it part. The kind of story line where there is a triangle that really isn't reminds me of M. Leighton's book Down to you.

I will be waiting for more in the next novella.
