Hearts Forged In Fire by Cassandre Dayne

For rancher Zeke Parker, every day was difficult. Not only was Rattlesnake Ranch falling on hard times but he couldn’t get over the horrible grief plaguing him for over a year. The death of his lover, David, had nearly stripped away his soul. As Valentine’s Day drew near his sister Sandi was determined to drag him out of his private hell. Agreeing to be a part of a charity auction for the humane society, Zeke figured one date with a wealthy woman wasn’t going to kill him. But during dinner at Sandi’s house, Zeke meets movie producer Drake Wilson, who's scouting locations for an upcoming movie, and sparks fly.

After an impetuous moment of heat, both men are skittish and each have their reasons for pulling back. But Cupid has other ideas in mind. When a rouse brings the two men together, passion roars between them but damning secrets are too much for either to deal with. Just as Zeke is determined to give up on love forever, Cupid intervenes again and this time, the arrow goes straight through Zeke's heart.

A truly beautiful book cover.

Sandi Parer had had enough, she wanted to see Zeke, her younger brother, happy. But Zeke was grieving for his dead lover David, who died in an terrible accident. As his big sister, Sandi made a plan, her cupid plan. To achieve her goal Sandi manipulated Zeke to meet a stranger at a dinner party. And a few days later Zeke has to join a charity event for Valentine's day with a title "Forged in Fire." To make his sister happy, Zeke agreed to both events.

Zeke came to Sandi's house with a nervous stomach. He knew his destructive behavior had to end. Zeke needed to get out of his depression and find new reason for living. As soon as Zeke arrived, he was greeted by a man who introduced himself as Drake Wilson. Zeke was drawn toward Drake as soon as their eyes met, they both felt an electric jolts as they touched. Those words where written a lot of times through the story and at a point it was annoying to read about "electric jolts" between them.

Sandi thought Drake was the perfect person for Zeke and that Zeke's farm would be the perfect location for the movie Drake was scouting for. Sandi invited him to meet Zeke at the dinner party. Drake and Zeke felt an instant energetic pull when they were together. We could describe it as an instant attraction between them. Because they both wanted to see each other again, they made a date for the next day. Drake found some information about Rattlesnake Ranch on the Internet and what he saw was perfect for his movie.

Hm, the plot was written with good style, but I have to admit, all the emotions between Zeke and Drake weren't expressed well and I couldn't feel them as a reader. The plot was developed too fast and the story would have been better with more a developed detailed plan. The way it was created didn't feel real, it was too mushy. I'm giving only 3 stars.
