Product Description

Special Agent Meghan Connors' dream of one day protecting the president of the United States is about to come true. Only one assignment stands in her way. After the vice president's rebellious daughter is threatened, Meghan is assigned to her protective detail on a secluded ranch in West Texas. Unfortunately, working with Special Agent in Charge Ash Zinders may be as tough as controlling her charge. Ash has a reputation for being critical and exacting, and he's also after the same promotion as Meghan. But when the threats escalate and security on the ranch is breached, it becomes clear this isn't the work of a single suspect-it's part of a sophisticated plan that reaches deeper and higher than anyone imagined. And only Ash and Meghan can put the pieces together before it's too late.

Publisher's Weekly

Christy winner and prolific author Mills braids together romance and suspense in a compelling narrative about a young woman caught in the crosshairs of political ambition. Special Agent Meghan Connors’s dreams of protecting the president become tainted by the vicious evil that overtakes those in power. Reeling from her own painful loss and head spinning from a new love that clouds her professional vision, Meghan must team up with Lindsay Hall, the daughter of the vice president of the United States, to uncover a conspiracy that’s leaving a growing swath of death and destruction. But can she trust Agent Ash Zinders and the other agents? Is there someone on the inside who wants Lindsay dead? Taking place mainly in one locale—a West Texas ranch owned by the Halls—this stand-alone will delight and draw readers of Christian romantic suspense like moths to flame. Readers who prefer a slower paced, single-setting, focused character-building story to one that rushes headlong across international borders will be suitably “attracted.” (Oct.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

Attracted to Fire by DiAnn Mills is a novel filled with action encompassing multiple themes of redemption, sacrifice, and finding one’s identity in Christ. Secret Service agents Ash and Meghan learn to hold these values as they risk their lives for the sake of their endangered protectee, who is the president’s daughter. Although very dedicated to their job, life becomes difficult as they must evaluate their own hardships and accept forgiveness for past mistakes, trusting God to guide them in the present. With new mounting courage, the agents are able to make an exceptional impact on Lindsay, the president’s daughter, who struggles with addictions to alcohol and narcotics.

Mills shifts narrative perspectives from one main character to the next as she moves from chapter to chapter. Meghan, Ash, and Lindsay are very interesting people to follow, and the plot is well developed, not losing the interest of the reader and always developing a new twist to keep the interest high. The very stubborn personalities of Ash and Meghan bring them into quite a ride of a relationship. The two agents' bravery and tenacity provide a sharp contrast to the fearful and confused Lindsay. And the added romance that Mills throws in does not distract from the storyline; it only improves it by being careful not to annoy the reader with anything overly sappy.

The setting of Attracted to Fire is a rural Texas ranch where Secret Service agents protect the recovering Lindsay after increasing threats have been made on her life. What seems to be a mundane assignment for the agents turns out to be an incredibly dangerous and shocking mission, as murders and mysterious happenings begin to occur seemingly for no reason. Lindsay faces the choice to change and better herself, but this proves no easy way out as her stalker determines to make her life miserable when she is sober. Turmoil haunts her at every turn, and the lives of her family members and herself ultimately depend on her actions. The book, of course, hits its ultimate climatic point near the very end, making it both a memorable and powerful story.

The main characters certainly are not all perfect, which makes them easy to relate to and understand. Learning from errors and realizing the critical need for self-improvement, compassion, forgiveness, trust, and faith, helps them all to better themselves and those around them. After reading this book, the Bible verses in Psalm 46:1-2 seemed to sum up the theme beautifully, stating, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea" (NIV).

I would undeniably recommend this book to teenagers; it hit just about everything from romance to mystery to adventure, and left me with a feeling of encouragement and satisfaction, as well as new insight on some very critical life lessons. – Michelle Radd, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
