About Sparking the Fire, Book 3:
Heating up reading lists this Fall will be Kate Meader’s highly anticipated Sparking the Fire, the “sexy and sassy” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux) steamy third novel in the Hot in Chicago series, where former lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, “Quiet on the set!”
Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Company 6, needs a low key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. But then in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.
Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back into the big time. And she’s not going to let anything stand in her way—even a certain brooding, blue-eyed firefighter she’s never quite been able to forget…Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…

The Hot in Chicago series is about the Dempsey family and while they may not be siblings by blood they are still family. Five years ago Wyatt Fox and Molly Cade had a week long affair with a no name policy which is fine with both of them. After the affair Molly ends up becoming an actress in Hollywood and Wyatt becomes a firefighter like the rest of his family members. Now Molly is in Chicago to film a movie and she needs the help of the Dempsey family because her movie is based on a woman like Alex, when Molly shows up at the fire house she is shocked to see Wyatt after all those years.  

The more of this series I read the more I love this family, they are so close and so different each and every book is a new adventure. Ms. Meader brings the hot and sexy along with a whirlwind romance to each and every story. I loved Wyatt and Molly’s story and how they originally got together. It was different and kept me wondering how in the long run they would end up being together since they both lead different lives.

Wyatt is different than the other family members, he’s quiet and feels so much. He has also been disappearing for some time so his family is curious to where he is going. I have to say I was shocked and loved that Ms. Meader added that surprise into the story, not only do I think it help progress the story but showed how family sticks together and comes together in the time of need.  Wyatt was hot and dreamy and just the right amount of alpha male. At first I thought Molly would be annoying because she was an actress but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I ended up liking her.

They had great chemistry and wonderful passion they might be my favorite couple yet. Meader’s writing just flowed and her characters jumped off the pages. Do I look forward to reading more from Meader in the future? Yes, Absolutely. If you’re looking for well-developed characters and hot firefighters you won’t want to miss Sparking the Fire!

Praise for Sparking the Fire, Book 3:
“The tale of hot firefighters and the women—and one man—who love them has come to an end. Meader ends this series with role playing, fierce family loyalty and multiple orgasms. The male protagonist goes through a transformation that showcases his vulnerability, insecurities, possessiveness and protectiveness. The many instances of a family sticking together through it all are more than enough to tug on the heart strings, but the steamy sex and sentimental pillow talk make this book a must-read.”
RT Book Reviews Four Star Review, Scorcher

“Can a firefighter and a movie star really make it work? Meader (Rekindle the Flame, 2015) immerses you in Wyatt’s tight-knit family of foster siblings that she’s built throughout the Hot in Chicago series, and readers will feel like part of the family in no time. Her descriptions of Chicago will leave fans wanting to travel to the Windy City and fall in love with their own firefighters.”

About the Author:

Kate Meader was raised on romance. An Irish girl, she started with Catherine Cookson and Jilly Cooper novels, and spiced it up with some Mills & Boon. Now based in Chicago, she writes romances of her own, where sexy contemporary alpha heroes and strong heroines match each other quip for quip. When not immersed in tales of brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, Kate lives on the web at
