Can't-Wait Wednesday: Consumed by J.R. Ward @JRWard1 ‏@GalleryBooks

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Consumed
SERIES: Firefighters, Book #1
AUTHOR: J.R. Ward 
PUBLISHER: Gallery Books
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 416 pages
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
ISBN: 9781501194900
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family's scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm . . .

I'm a HUGE fan of Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, so I'm very interested in this new one from her. According to Goodreads, the genre is Contemporary Romance but it sounds more like Romantic Suspense to me. I prefer that anyway!

  1. I've never read J.R. Ward before but I'm always hearing good things about her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Hope you love this!

    1. Thanks, Tammy! I haven't tried any of her other series yet, but I've heard good things about them all.

  2. Wow, this sounds like a real twist of genres for her. However, I am liking the sound of it and will probably give this a go at some point. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Me too, Barb. I wasn't too interested to read her Bourbon Kings series, but I like the sound of this one!

  3. Love the sounds of this for sure! Great pick.

  4. I love her writing but I haven't read all of BDB books, whatever I have read I loved them though. a contemporary book by her makes me intrigued so I am waiting for this one too.
    I don't have WoW this week because I just started blogging after a hiatus, so its a comeback and reading slump tips post.
