There are a myriad of characters involved in telling this compelling story. How they intertwine is the essence of this latest offering. The relationship between Mel and Jake is so touching that I couldn’t wait to turn the pages. I had no idea how the suspenseful slant to the storyline would work itself out. This was definitely not a usual, cookie-cutter book. I highly recommend this latest in Scarbrough’s series. Her sensuality is sensitive but not overpowering. The chemistry evident throughout the book is just another reason to pick up this book. You will see that she deserves a place on your automatic read list.” – Reviewer Brenda Talley
“Kentucky Flame by Jan Scarbrough delivers! It is interesting, intensely passionate, and peopled with protagonists you care about. Mel is strong and stubborn. Jake is caring and a to-die-for hero. Secondary characters breathe life into a story of desire and intrigue. Scarbrough’s horse knowledge shines without being overwhelming. Crisp dialogue and masterful transitions create a hero and heroine you can take to your heart in this well-executed story of two people reunited at last. Brava Ms. Scarbrough.” – Amazon Review
