Tracie Peterson in her new book “Refining Fire book coverRefining Fire” Book Two in the Brides of Seattle series published by Bethany House Publishers takes us into the lives of Militine Scott and Thane Patton.

From the back cover:  Twenty-two-year-old Militine Scott is in training at the Madison Bridal School in Seattle, yet she has no intention of pursuing marriage. What respectable man would have her? But she has found the school provides the perfect opportunity to keep her unsavory past hidden.

Thane Patton, though fun-loving and fiercely loyal to his friends, hides a dark secret, as well. He finds himself drawn to Militine, sensing that she harbors a haunting pain similar to his own.

Will they allow God to make something new and beautiful from the debris of their past?

Seattle, Romance and Brides these are the ingredients for a wonderful read.  This time the focus is on Militine. She is trying to keep a low profile as she doesn’t want the secret of her past to get out as she feels that everyone will walk away if it does. Thane is a wonderful character but he has a dark secret as well. They keep trying to put distance between them emotionally as circumstances keep drawing them together. There is going to have to be a lot of healing before these two can be together. “Refining Fire” is a wonderful romance and the history of Seattle is explored with some depth in this one. Ms. Peterson is an amazing writer and she has given us a great story with believable characters in Militine and Thane as well as the supporting players that we just fall in love with.  I liked this book and look forward to the next one in this series.
