Scorching the Neighborhood

by Jaylen Florian

Who’s writing and posting the uninhibited thirst letters about the fire captain?

Julian, the captain, is only days away from the auction block. He’s agreed to headline a bachelor auction to raise money for charity at the annual Rugged Heights neighborhood fundraiser.

Consumed by his prestigious firefighting leadership position, Julian is oblivious that anyone passionately yearns for him until the first note — a secret crush letter — is anonymously posted on a park clubhouse bulletin board.

Shocked by the public expressions of frenzied infatuation, he digs deeper. Is this a joke? An old flame making a new play for him? Or is it just someone’s clever attempt to intensify a bidding war for him at the charity benefit?

Julian needs to be prepared for anything. He might even be ready to begin dating men again. However, one thing seems certain. He should get his answers by the time the auction gavel strikes at the event, finally revealing everything.
