From award winning author Laura Trentham comes Set the Night on Fire, a novel about starting over, finding your way back home—and falling head over heels. . .
Ella Boudreaux has a lot to prove to her family, friends, and foes—and to herself. So when her marriage ends she decides to invest her energy and money into a place that brings back some of Ella’s happiest memories: the Abbott brothers’ garage. Maybe, if she puts her mind to it, she can teach skeptical, stubborn Mack Abbott how to make the business a true success. Which would be a lot easier if the hunky mechanic didn’t make her motor run quite so fast…and hot.
Mack was furious when his brother, Ford, sold his share of the business. He’s in no rush to team up with a wealthy divorcée who shows up to the garage in stilettos—and the longest, sexiest legs he’s seen in forever. But Ella’s grit and determination won’t quit…and soon Mack can see that she’s been down a few rough roads herself. Neither Mack nor Ella can deny the fierce attraction that’s revving up between them. Could it be that true love has been in the backseat all along…and they’ve finally found the key?

Review of Set The Night On Fire
Review (5 Stars): I absolutely adore this series!!! Set The Night On Fire was a beautifully written love story about two characters that couldn’t be more perfect for each other. Ella was a great character because she always felt as though she had so much to prove and by buying part of the Abbott brother’s garage, she was able to be a part of something that involved a happier part of her life. For Mack, he also felt as though he had something to prove to the memory of his father by keeping the family garage open and running. These two characters bumped heads every step of the way while trying to ignore the chemistry that was destined to consume them both.
This is a fabulous book that is so well-written and charming that you will get lost in this story. I’ve always wanted to see Mack get his happy ending and he has met his match with the lovely yet fiercely determined, Ella. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t read any of the other books because it can stand on its own and I know that you will get swept away with Ella and Mack’s rocky love story. I can’t get enough of these characters and I can’t wait to read more from this talented author.
