Special Agent Meghan is assigned to a team protecting the vice president's daughter, and they are staying on a Texas ranch. Meghan is the only female agent, and the agent in charge, Ash, doesn't like women in the Secret Service. Ash is a good agent but demanding of his team. He and Meghan clash over work issues for awhile, but thankfully Ash realizes that Meghan is an asset to the team.
I thought the book was a good read and the mystery of the threats against the VP's daughter was interesting. However, I liked the author's award-winning novel Breach of Trust much better. That book kept me on the edge of my seat, whereas I had a harder time staying interested in this book.
I have read numerous books about the police, FBI, CIA, etc. but don't typically come across (fiction) books about the Secret Service. So, reading "Attracted to Fire" was fun! Special Agent Meghan Connors is currently assigned to protect the VP's daughter, who has a reputation for not only being badly behaved, she has a drug problem. Meghan, daughter 'protectee' Lindsay, and the other agents are sent to a ranch in Texas for Lindsay to receive treatment and be out of the public eye. While they are there some very strange and dangerous things begin to occur. There is also romantic tension with the Special Agent in Charge (I had fun figuring out some of the abbreviations) Ash Zinders. Overall Meghan is to be admired, Ash eventually has a softer side, and there is a mystery to solve - who can be trusted? Whose motives are pure and whose are deadly?
I've read a few other books by DiAnn Mills and this was definitely one of my favorites.
Special Agent Meghan Connors' has big dreams for her career in the Secret Service, to protect the president of the United States, as a female agent she has climbed her way to the top in a 'mans world' and now there is only one assignment keeping her from her dreams, that one assignment brings two large problems. One the Vice President's rowdy, rebellious daughter whose antics can cost the presidential election has now been threatened. Problem Two is Special Agent Ash Zinders, who is not only up against Meghan for the job of protecting the president but has a reputation for disliking female agents and outspoken about how they do not belong in the field.
Meghan is determined to prove Agent Zinders wrong, and Ash is determined to catch who is threatening the Vice President's daughter threw a turn of events Ash finds his heart warming to the one person that can prevent him from obtaining his dream career. As time passes Ash and Meghan, with the help of their protectee realize there is a lot more behind the threats than it seems and are on the hunt to find those behind it. Meghan and Ash quickly learn that they are unsure of who they can trust, will they figure it out before someone is hurt?
Diann Mills has created a cast of characters that pull you into their story. This book is full of action, mystery and a love story and will keep you glued to the pages until the very end. I really enjoyed this book, sometimes I found it to be a little predictable with who was behind everything, as well as the ending not being as strong as I would have hoped for, the book also left you wishing for more back story on some of the characters, throughout the book you are given glimpses but not enough to really understand some of the characters motives. I still enjoyed the story and think it is worth checking out next time you are in search of a good book.
I received this e-book free from NetGalley in exchange for a book review. Attracted to Fire is a great book! Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. If you are looking for a very suspenseful page-turner, this is it! Somebody is responsible for all the trouble and nobody can trust anybody.

I look forward to reading other books by DiAnn Mills.
Diann Mills' latest novel, "Attracted to Fire" is one of the best books I had read lately! Filled with suspense, romance, deception and overcoming one's past, this book kept me reading page after page, but at the same time I did not want the book to end.
Special Agents Megan Connors and Ash Zinders are assigned to the same detail - protecting the Vice-President's daughter Lindsay. This is not as easy as it seems as it appears that someone is leaking information furthering putting Lindsay in danger, people are being killed and attraction is building between Megan and Ash. Lindsay had gotten pulled into the dark world of drugs, alcohol and deception, but she cannot seem to find a way out or whom she can actually trust.
Filled with twists and turns and "good" people really on the wrong side and those who have gotten sucked in without hope of staying alive if they try to escape will keep you on the edge of your seat reading. The characters are so likable and I found myself trusting both Megan and Ash along with Lindsay and Chip. I was surprised at a few twists along the way and finding out who was on what side, and I was hoping that some of the characters were not tangled up in the mess. I highly recommend this book and I am hoping that Mills will write some more novels with some of these same characters in them!
