"erotically scathing story"

How do you fix someone that has fallen hopelessly apart, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, landing broken in fragile disarray? Can love be the glue that will hold these pieces together?

Isis finds herself dancing at a strip club, not that she wants to, but the money is something she cannot live without. She has come from a past that was tortured and fractured. Right when she thinks she might be safe, she spies a very large and scary man fighting in some woods near the store she stops at on her way home. This one moment will forever change her life, thrusting her into the world of the powerful Shikar warriors!

Caress of Flame is the newest release by renowned authoress Sherri L. King. This is a Shikar tale that takes place in the world of the Horde War series, and once again, Ms. King nailed another erotically scathing story about her bigger-than-life Shikar warriors. The sexual content in this book flowed effectively throughout the entire book, leaving this reviewer in heated sweats! Now that is what erotic crafting is all about...

Flare, is a big, bad Shikar warrior and also an Incinerator; he has the ability to manifest and control fire. Talk about your burning love. This longhaired, massively built in every way warrior will steal your heart, while trying to do the same to Isis.

He will be sent in to protect her and watch over her. From the moment his hungry eyes look upon the flamed haired beauty, he sees something that pulls at his big heart. Flare will feel the need to fix Isis's tortured past, but can he? Some things can never go back to the way they were.

If you have been waiting on pins and needles for the next book that deals with these mighty Shikar Warrior, then step right up because Ms. King dished it hot and heavy with this feisty book. This reviewer has read every book in this series and can hardly wait for the next one so she can lose herself amid the lusty lives of these warriors!

Caress of Flame is a Shikar story, taking place in the world of the Horde Wars series.

Isis is a woman haunted. Her life is her own, yet she isn't happy. And she knows she can never be until she lays her traumatic past to rest. But before she can do that, she finds herself caught in the middle of a war that has raged for eons.

Daemons. Monsters from the Pit of Hell have targeted Isis and her very special abilities.

Flare is a renowned Shikar warrior, an Incinerator, able to create and control fire. But when he first sees Isis, the human he is charged with protecting from the Daemon threat, the fire that rages in his heart is beyond even his control. He knows he must have her, but Isis has deep wounds that must be healed before they can truly become one. And he knows his love-their love-can make her whole again.

But first he must convince Isis, before the Daemons and the ghosts of her past spirit her beyond his reach forever.
