Melanie Morganfield had grown from a precocious child to a beautiful woman in Asa Parkers loving home. And with each passing day Asa - 29 years Melanies senior - felt his desire grow for the blossoming young woman with her auburn hair and amber eyes. He bestowed on the saucy and strong willed beauty everything he could give, and was tormented by what he could not... his name in marriage.
Melanie was grateful to Asa for all he had done for her. In her devotion, she longed to make happy the final years of the man who had cared for her in every way that he could. But when she met Stephen Hull, his dark and youthful sensuality heated her blood in a way which she could neither ignore nor deny. She knew instinctively that she must not ever see Stephen again, or she would be fanning the flames which were destined to lead to... Amber Fire.
