Firelight by Kristen Callihan
Miranda was born with a gift she sees as a curse; she has the ability to summon fires and to make things suddenly heat and burn. She now has control over her power but not in time to save her father’s warehouse and keep them from ruin. Destitute and desperate she is wed to the notorious Lord Archer, a man in black who always wears a mask and is rumored to have committed all sorts of heinous acts. Is he as evil as he is rumored to be? Can she keep her secret and not destroy anyone else? Can she learn to love him?
This is a retelling of the beauty and the beast tale with a much darker twist. The romance parts of the story are very steamy and perfect for fans of paranormal romance. Set in gaslight London the dark, dank atmosphere matches perfectly with the dark fantasy elements. Enough secondary characters with mysterious backgrounds are introduced that you know there will be sequels for a long time to come.
