Read an #Excerpt from Fighting the Fire by Laura Kaye + #Giveaway

A note from the author...

Dear Readers,

I’m so excited to share my new standalone romance, Fighting the Fire! This is the fourth book in my Warrior Fight Club contemporary romance series, which mixes military and sports romance elements to tell the story of an MMA training club which creates a found family for veterans transitioning to civilian life and dealing with their war-borne demons. In Fighting the Fire, Sean and Daniela are two of my favorite characters I've ever written--they're both strong, loyal, snarky, and hiding some pretty deep hurts that in the end make them so perfect for each other. And all that frenemies tension makes the chemistry between them hot AF! I hope you love them as much as I do!

xx Laura Kaye

About the Book

Fighting the Fire
(Warrior Fight Club #3)
by Laura Kaye 

Published by Laura Kaye (first published March 30th 2021)
One night is never enough…

For firefighter Sean Riddick, Warrior Fight Club keeps the demons of his past at bay, even though it means seeing Daniela England. Her ball-busting sarcasm drives him nuts, and he knows he’s damaged goods anyway, but he can’t help but remember how good they were together that one time. Now he wants to take her to the mats no matter how much they go toe to toe.

ER nurse Daniela England has lost so much that she’s vowed never to need anyone again. Fight club helps her beat back her survivor’s guilt, but it means dealing with Riddick. The hot-but-infuriating firefighter is everything she wants to avoid, which is why their one-night stand was a mistake. Now she needs to keep her distance so it doesn’t happen again.

But when Dani witnesses Sean’s motorcycle accident, she steps up to help him recover. One on one, they get beneath all the snark and find a connection neither expected. As Sean heals, the sparks between them burst into red-hot passion—and ignite old wounds. Now there are fires all around—and they have to decide which they’ll fight and which they’ll let consume them. 


Daniela dropped her purse onto the chair and grabbed a few pieces of cheese popcorn and a few pieces of caramel. “Do you ever eat these together?” she asked, popping one of each into her mouth. “It seems like it should be weird, but it’s really good.”
Sean blinked and then a slow smile grew on his face. “That’s how I eat them. I only put them in separate bowls for you.”
She grinned. “Great minds.”
“Right?” He nodded. “Also, you just called my mind great, for the record. I think we need to mark this occasion.”
Dani rolled her eyes. “Don’t make me change my opinion.”
He chuckled. She grinned. Gah why does this feel like a date?!
Luckily, things felt more normal by the time she got him some ice for his chest and he queued up the movie. “‘Captain America’ is first.”
“Why is that?” she asked. “Since you mentioned having a spreadsheet and all.” She smirked at him, even though their text exchange the day before had made her smile. And then she’d purposely frowned because why was she smiling at texts from Sean Riddick? But then someone had caught her smiling and teased her about whether she had a secret sexting partner and that’d made her inexplicably blush. Damnit. And she wasn’t even normally a blusher!
“It occurs chronologically earliest, in the 1940s.”
“Okay. Just how many movies are there in the Marvel world?” She eyed his laptop sitting open on the end table. 
Sean blanked his expression, like he was purposely suppressing a reaction. “Uh, it’s better if you just go with the flow here.”
How many?”
He coughed on a piece of popcorn.


Clearing his throat, he said, “It’s a robust universe, okay? Leave it at that.”

“Fifteen?” She’d originally asked out of curiosity, but now she was having fun trying to make him react. Which was why she launched a surprise attack in reaching across his lap to grab his computer. Her fingers had just grasped at the corner of it when Sean’s arms banded around her mid-section—one hand on her hip and the other wrapping under her and landing on her side—and pulled her back.

“What do you think you’re doing, woman?”

His arms were so freaking strong, and God his hands were big where they held her tight. One arm brushed the underside of her breast and the other gripped her hip, and both were freaking arousing. “I was seeing how many movies there are. And this hold is unfair because I can’t fight you off without hurting you.”

Grinning, he held her tighter, forcing her to brace her hands on his thigh. “Yes, be very careful, Daniela. I’m super fragile over here. You wouldn’t want to hurt me.”

She glared at him. 
But he was grinning like an idiot. And his good humor was freaking appealing. Which she was sure had nothing to do with the way he was holding her and how close their bodies were. It would be such a little thing to turn into him, to straddle him, and to make this day about something entirely else…
“You want to punch me right now, don’t you?”
“Very much.”
