Growing up, first on a farm, then in a small town, Vicky Westernly moves to the big city for the education and job opportunities it will afford her. So far those jobs are not looking too promising, so when the temp agency sends her to Mr. Ritter's office, she has no idea what to expect. Darian Ritter isn't mean, just demanding, and he needs a personal assistant that can handle his hectic life and keep him together. When he first sees Vicky, he doesn't think she can do it, but as he talks to her, she surprises him and he gives her a chance, and she continues to surprise him. Just under the surface of what you see is the reality; Darian Ritter is in fact a very powerful vampire, and things are afoot in town. Kindling Flames: Gathering Tinder follows Darian and Vicky as she learns his secret and deals with it, learns about supernaturals in the world and continues to impress Darian with her ability to keep him on task and organized. Author Julie Wetzel gives the reader a vampire novel that breaks the mold of vampire novels.

Author Julie Wetzel combines the business world, an amazingly powerful vampire, in fact so powerful that the whole community is in awe of him, and a naive and innocent girl together into this worthy story that keeps you guessing until the last page, when you scream because you want more. Kindling Flames: Gathering Tinder is billed as the first book in The Ancient Fire series, and as the story begins we are treated to another house burning uncontrollably with dead bodies in the yard. Something is going on, and it is not of this world. This is a really great beginning series book. You have a number of story lines aside from the main storyline running through the novel, and there is no sex or violence in the book at all. It might be implied that it happened, but no details. Great for all readers.
