#CharacterInterview Heroes to Swoon For Book #2: Meet Laura from Blazing Love by Chantel Rhondeau

Laura from Blazing Love by Chantel Rhondeau

Why do I swoon for Thayne Bloodgood? Since anyone with eyes can see he is smoking hot with the body of a Greek god, I’m assuming that isn’t the question here. You know, there’s just something about him. I’ve tried so hard to fight this attraction. I mean, dating a firefighter isn’t my thing. I just can’t risk having something happen again. But Thayne? Thayne is something special. Maybe it’s his persistence in pursuing me. Or it could be how he’ll risk himself to rescue a stray kitten stuck in a drainage ditch as quickly as he will run into a burning building to rescue a child. He cooks like a gourmet chef and his only wish is for me to love him. I don’t think there’s much more a girl could ask for. But the very things that make him swoon-worthy are what scares me. I wish he was a nice accountant or business manager, something safe. Then he’d be the perfect man for me.

The person outside her door pounded again, this time louder.

Laura’s entire body shook to the point she could hardly stand, her anxiety completely overwhelming her. She couldn’t even call out to ask who was there, let alone cross the room to answer the door. Thayne was dead. She just knew it.

Stop it, Laura! You’re not being rational. If Thayne were in trouble, they wouldn’t know to contact you. It has to be a salesman.

“Come on, Laura, open up. I know you’re upset that I didn’t show up today, but I have a good reason,” Thayne’s muffled voice said before he went back to pounding.
Laura let out a shaky breath and lurched a step forward. It felt like an eternity, and she couldn’t loosen her vocal cords enough to call out, but she finally made it to the doorway and unlocked the deadbolt.

Before she even fully opened it, Thayne was inside. His arms wrapped around her shoulders and hugged her tight to his chest while he talked a mile a minute.

“I got assigned a new partner and Frankie’s not the kind of guy I wanted to subject you to. Sorry I didn’t make it to the clinic. We had community days today. I forgot about it and by the time we were finished there—” He cut off abruptly, pulling back and looking into her eyes. His deep green ones narrowed with concern. 

“What’s wrong? Has something happened?”

Laura licked her lips and opened her mouth to speak, but the words couldn’t get past the knot of anxiety blocking her throat.


An emotionally injured veterinarian assistant struggles to resist the heat of a blazing hot firefighter, but she can’t avoid the flames of his passion. Laura’s attempting to rebuild her life after grieving for her murdered fiancĂ©. Fireman Thayne is the most eligible bachelor in Sayle—strong, loyal, and sexy as hell. He’s determined to show Laura how to love again, but an arsonist loose in Sayle ups the stakes, risking more than their romance.
