Inner Fire Blitz & Giveaway

Inner Fire
by R.L. Stedman
Release Date: 11/30/14

Summary from Goodreads:
‘Maybe it would be better if I started at the beginning.’ Gran watched me carefully. ‘This ability we have; my mother, me. You. We draw heat along our bodies; anger makes us flame.’

When her friend is assaulted, Corrine Peterson can’t help reacting. But she didn’t think and now her hands are burnt, Gran is coming to look after her and, scariest of all, strange men are watching her house. Could they be terrorists? Secret agents? 

It seems that Gran’s idea of a solution is to introduce Corrine to Rowan. Okay, sure, maybe eighteen year old Rowan is gorgeous – but he has his own troubles. And right now, Corrine doesn’t need complications in her life. 

But in a world of surveillance and secrecy, complexity is inevitable. And as the tension mounts Corrine realizes - maybe Gran can help her, after all.

"We had a debate at school about freedom and privacy, which is a topic you know should be important but really isn’t, and then we all kind of got bored with it and Ms Winner, the Social Studies teacher, sighed and said, ‘Girls, you don’t realize how easily freedom is eroded’, which is the sort of thing that teachers say."

"Maybe it would be better if I started at the beginning.’ Gran watched me carefully, like she was trying to tell me something but didn’t know how to put it into words. ‘This ability we have; my mother, me. You. We can all draw heat along our bodies; anger makes us flame."

'‘Move,’ he pushed me forward, and I stepped with him, legs to legs, hips to hips, me facing forwards, him following behind. It could be almost like dancing, we moved so well together. When I swallowed, the knife-edge touched my skin. Its blade was no longer as cold as it had been — I was warming it."
