Some fussy artist is making Shannon Morgan’s job with the city of Vancouver, Washington harder than it should be. She’s organizing the huge annual Independence Day celebration and he’s being impossible. But then, he’s like a couple other men she’s known—her mostly absent father and her disappearing ex-boyfriend, for example.

All Leo Wilson wants is an okay for his plans to install glass fireworks at Fort Vancouver on the Fourth of July. With thousands of people there to see his work, it could be his big career break. If the crabby bureaucrat will get him the permits he needs.

When Leo confronts the cause of his trouble in person he’s surprised to find a beautiful young woman. Shannon is equally surprised at meeting a sweet, sexy man. Dinner, a movie and a few torrid kisses take it from spark to flame.
But then the father she’s always wanted as part of her life reappears, accompanied by her ex-boyfriend. Shannon has to decide how far she’s willing to go to have her father around. And find out why he’s with her ex.

If she makes the right decisions, she and Leo will create fireworks that rival the pyrotechnics that light up the sky on July Fourth. Privately.

     Those big eyes looking at him, the soft, pink lip she was biting almost undid him. He wanted to kiss her more than he’d ever wanted to kiss anyone. Had ever since the first day he’d met her. He kept reminding himself he wanted to take it slow, not rush in and get involved too fast, like he had with Cathy. But she didn’t make it easy to keep his promise to himself.
     Caressing her cheeks with the tips of his fingers elicited another gasp. Then she licked her lips. Just licked her lips and he had to fight the urge to cover her mouth and devour it with his own.
     But, determined to take his time, he feathered kisses along her jawline. Light— butterfly light—kisses barely touching her skin but allowing him to taste her, tempt her, tease her.
     “Leo, please,” she pleaded as she moved her hands up his chest until her arms were wrapped around his neck and she was straining against him, her head back.
     Instead of answering her plea, he kissed his way down her neck until he was at the base of her throat where he nipped at the soft flesh there, then bathed it with his tongue as if to heal whatever he may have hurt. God, she was sweet. Soft and sweet and smelling of spring.
     Finally, Shannon took his face in her hand and said, “If you’re not going to really kiss me, I’m going to kiss you.”
