Firefighter Carmen Johnson shuns love and commitment, believing her chosen career will likely bring about her early death. Her family is cursed and she doesn’t want to leave a loved one behind to face life alone.

Gin’s determination to stay far away from the hero, and Carmen’s goal to make the hero hater a notch on her bedpost spurs a heated competition. They find themselves battling their willpower and their bodies, where the electric energy is far more hazardous than any inferno.
