Author : Autumn Dawn
Source: Self Purchase
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel (318 pgs)





When the stylists told her they would make her hot, Kira didn’t believe they meant literally. She never dreamed that at the end of the free makeover, a stranger would toss the torch that would burn away her former self. To her horror, she would find more changed than her hair color. For Kira, life would never be the same.

Humans feared the power of the elementals, so they locked them away. In the process they altered the balance of nature…

800 years later, the elements have awakened. Maddened by centuries of imprisonment, these powerful beings crave vengeance. Three unsuspecting women will have to soothe the savage forces before it’s too late.










  
What a fantastic, original story! Just when I thought I had read just about everything in the paranormal romance genre One Night to Burn came along and blew my mind!

Kira's stuck in a rut and decides to take a vacation to Hawaii. Unfortunately, things don't go as planned when she signs up for a free makeover. After a pretty horrible scene, where she just knows she's going to die, she wakes up back in her hotel room alive, but very changed. She's more beautiful, has jewelry that can't be removed, and is ravenously hungry. Food doesn't diminish the hunger she feels, but to her horror fire does! Which leads her to the volcanoes of Hawaii. She's drawn to the lava, and the fire Elemental that resides there, Raze.

Raze is pissed. After 800 years of being imprisoned he's free and ready to take his revenge. Unfortunately for him the Fates have a plan to keep him placid, and it involves a fiery, former human, redhead wearing his wedding jewelry.

Thrown together by the Fates Raze and Kira start to explore an inevitable attraction. But their relationship takes a back seat when Kira's hateful mother shows up, a murderous cult has it's eye on getting rid of the former Fire King, and a power hungry elemental Queen starts causing problems.

I can't praise One Night to Burn enough. I'm a sucker for an 'ordinary girl-turned extraordinary' storyline. Add that with a brooding, extremely hot immortal and enough action to keep my adrenaline flowing and you've got a winner. I can't wait to return to the alternate world Autumn Dawn has created in the forthcoming second in the series; When the Sea Burns.

  2. It was a completely random Amazon find. I was so happy that it turned out to be awesome. The synopsis left me wondering what I was getting myself into, but I'm so glad I took a chance :)
