Sparks flew from the moment they met.
Beryl Madison answers her summons to teacher Terry Goodson’s second-grade classroom to defend her nephew’s “odd behavior” like an avenging angel. It seems poor little Duncan “is having some type of fantasy ideation”–he’s been telling some of his classmates that his aunt is a superhero.
When Beryl shows up in a yellow catsuit with orange flames, a mardi gras mask, and red stiletto boots, Terry thinks he’s the one having the fantasy ideation now. Come to find out, Beryl is merely in her work clothes. One of her jobs is playing “The Flame” for a local television station’s morning children’s show.
The next day Terry goes to the Internal Revenue Service for an audit of his personal income tax return and learns all about Beryl’s other job. While auditing the return, Beryl suspects that the attorney who handled Terry’s late uncle’s estate has swindled several clients.
As they work together to bring justice to those swindled by the seedy attorney, they learn that the spontaneous combustion each sets off in the other is more than a physical attraction. Could this once-in-a-lifetime explosion be the love they both want? Or will they wind up blowing their relationship to smithereens?

Hi, I’m Gayle. I’m a hybrid author. That means I’m half author, half mom, half entrepreneur–okay, not true…plus, I don’t have that many halves. It means I’m both traditionally and self-published. My traditionally-published books are cozy mystery series under the names Gayle Trent, Amanda Lee, and Gayle Leeson.
I wrote The Flame many, many years ago–let’s not go into HOW many or you’ll be asking me what it was like to live in a cave with dinosaurs prowling outside. (I hated the pterodactyls, but the brontosauruses were sweet.) I dug out the story, revised it a bit, and wanted to share it with you. I really like the story. I can identify with Beryl, the heroine, and I hope you’ll be able to as well. She has so much responsibility, and she’s scared. But she’s making the best of the situation, and she’s doing better than she thinks she is.
