SPARKING THE FIREfire_animated_text_divider


5 out of 5 sizzling stars!!
Sizzling hot, rise the temperature funny, quirky novel with a too hot to handle firefighter, and a courage to the max actress with a funny mind.


This is the 3rd book on the Hot in Chicago series… a series that you definitely want to read!!!!

This is the story of Wyatt Fox. The last bachelor son of the Dempseys. And he will keep it that way thank you very much, that is why he hangs on to that amazing week with an (at the moment) unknown woman that fuels his fantasies.


He is a recluse that avoids the limelight like the plague so it comes as a shock to him that he is now the new movie consultant for the CFD.

And not only that but he is about to face the woman of his fantasies, literally , because Molly Cade is the star of the movie in which he is the consultant and is the same woman from years ago.


Molly Cade came crashing down hard… after being at the top, an A lister in Hollywood, her divorce and the leaking of some racy photos, personal photos she took for her husband, left her ostracised and at the bottom.

So now., she has her opportunity to shine and gain her footing…. All she needs is the stamp of approval from Alex Dempseys, but there is a human wall literally and figuratively, preventing her from reaching her goal. To get to Alex she need to go through Wyatt.


She could have used the wall, but it was five feet away and his arm was right there attached to a human wall, and what harm could it do? Untold amounts, it seemed………… […] Positively porn-worthy.


She is a funny and quick witted person that was dealt a bad hand, but now she sees her opportunity of redemption, but her heart may get in the way of her dreams… or maybe her dreams change….

Their chemistry hasn’t diminished in the lightest in the last 5 years that they haven’t seen each other.

The story is very well written, you simply cannot fall in love with the Dempseys and their love and protectiveness of each other. The way they embrace family, being blood family or not. But at the same time, the funny way of them, their ribbing and roughing of each other.


“What in the fuckity fuck of all that is fucking fucked did you do to drive your woman away?”


Kate Meader is a great storyteller, and this sizzling sorry melts your heart all the way. Family shining through all the way. Reflecting on what is family, not only blood , but bonds, loyalty, and sticking together through thick and thin.

Great book!!!!!

I recieved this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Praise for Sparking the Fire, Book 3:

“The tale of hot firefighters and the women—and one man—who love them has come to an end. Meader ends this series with role playing, fierce family loyalty and multiple orgasms. The male protagonist goes through a transformation that showcases his vulnerability, insecurities, possessiveness and protectiveness. The many instances of a family sticking together through it all are more than enough to tug on the heart strings, but the steamy sex and sentimental pillow talk make this book a must-read.”

RT Book Reviews Four Star Review, Scorcher


“Can a firefighter and a movie star really make it work? Meader (Rekindle the Flame, 2015) immerses you in Wyatt’s tight-knit family of foster siblings that she’s built throughout the Hot in Chicago series, and readers will feel like part of the family in no time. Her descriptions of Chicago will leave fans wanting to travel to the Windy City and fall in love with their own firefighters.”


About Sparking the Fire, Book 3:

Heating up reading lists this Fall will be Kate Meader’s highly anticipated Sparking the Fire, the “sexy and sassy” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux) steamy third novel in the Hot in Chicago series, where former lovers unexpectedly reunite for a sizzling affair that will have the director yelling, “Quiet on the set!”



Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Company 6, needs a low key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. But then in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.



Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back into the big time. And she’s not going to let anything stand in her way—even a certain brooding, blue-eyed firefighter she’s never quite been able to forget…Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…


About the Author:

Now based in Chicago, she writes romances of her own, where sexy contemporary alpha heroes and strong heroines match each other quip for quip. When not immersed in tales of brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, Kate lives on the web at
