Review & Promo Giveaway - In the Firelight by Sibylla Matilde

Check out my review and author giveaway of In The Firelight by Sibylla Matilde.  Thanks for fogging up my Kindle screen with this steamy book Sibylla (fanning self).

Title: In the Firelight

Author: Sibylla Matilde

Date of publication: December 19, 2013

***** Mature Content, Sexual Situations, Adult Situations, Strong Language *****

She found him on a snowy night. He sparked her desires and inflamed her dreams.

Independent and feisty, Shea Madison has a tussle on her hands. Living in and loving her quiet little

corner of Montana, she’s fiercely determined to fight a real estate developer trying to turn her quaint

little mountain town into a touristy ski resort. So, when an outsider shows up to study the effects on

the area, she instantly attempts to sway his impression… even if it means a little harmless flirting

with the enticing visitor.

Rhys Weland’s charade has one purpose—to bring the locals around to the idea of the resort,

primarily the ringleader, Ms. Shea Madison. Embroiled in his deception, he’s stunned by the feelings

she draws from deep inside him. Her integrity and sincerity quickly have him second-guessing his

twisted morals. Her spirit arouses his soul. Her sensuality steals his breath.

In the dark of the night, in the warmth of the fire, the passion smoldering between them combusts.

But just when it all seems to make sense, one small stubborn mistake shreds the fragile bond

between them. Will an impetuous act reignite their flame, or will their love vanish like sparks in the

Kindle Crack Book Reviews- A Review of In The Firelight
In the FirelightIn the Firelight by Sibylla Matilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler- free review.  Stand alone. HEA. 4 – 4.25 stars.

Rhys is slick and sexy player type who is sent on a mission to Montana by his boss.  His boss wants him to use some of his infamous penis persuasion tactics to talk Shea into giving up her land. Shea is a fiercely independent loner who lives on a huge piece of property that he wants to develop into a ski resort. Rhys expected her to be an ogre mountain lumber jack type… and not the beautiful woman that he can’t get out of his mind. They have amazing chemistry and end up steaming up every cold spot in Shea’s sleepy Montana town, store, bedroom etc.  Rhys’ conscious starts to get the best of him.  He also begins to feel things he has never felt before for any woman.  Rhys also starts to discover himself! (That's a lot of starts:) Will he chose they sexy mountain babe with a potty mouth or go for the fat paycheck and let his boss use his as a man whore pawn and help him get the land?

In the Firelight is a fast and steamy read.  At times I found the sex scenes a little repetitious and would have liked a little more angst. I loved Shea!  It’s rare to find a solid book with a smart, independent/non doormat heroine! Over all this is a steamy, sexy fun and fast read.  It’s my second Sibylla Matilde M book and definitely not my last!  Excellent epilogue.

4-4.25 stars! Review to follow with tour. Another great book from SM.

About Sibylla Matilde
Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on

the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she

changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of

Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet

glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head,

living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.

Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music

that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many

genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually... but, really, how

can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She

also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana

Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte.

Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her

laugh daily, even when things are tough. He's proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they

have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their

father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason

she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait…
teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet.
