Cursed by Fire by Jacquelyn Frank

From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes the scorching hot first book in a thrilling new series featuring four warrior brothers who have the power—and the curse—of immortality.
 
For centuries, Dethan has been trapped in a fiery inferno for defying the gods and snatching the power of immortality. Condemned to have his battle-hardened body licked by flames only to regenerate and be consumed all over again, Dethan has lost all hope—until the Goddess of Conflict appears. She will release him from torment—if he’ll use his power and strength as a warrior to raise an army and defeat a fierce enemy faction of gods.
 
Free to live as a man once again, Dethan meets Selinda—heir to the throne of Hexis—and his thoughts quickly turn from the conquest of cities to the conquest of this headstrong beauty. Betrothed to a cruel, calculating powermonger, Selinda needs a champion, and so Dethan enters into another bargain: If she will share her bed—and her body—with him, Dethan will save her city from destructive forces within and without. As the lovers ignite a searing passion, Dethan will risk all—even the wrath of the Goddess of Conflict—for a chance to make Selinda his forever.
Jacquelyn Frank is an author of paranormal romance novels. Her novel Rapture reached number 8 in the New York Times paperback fiction chart.
Review: The Immortal Brothers series starts with Cursed by Fire and it's an explosive beginning! Dethan has been cursed by the Gods for finding immortality, but centuries later he is freed - a war has broken out and he is needed. Selinda starts out seeming timid and completely overwhelmed by the men in her life, but as she risks everything, using Dethan to free herself, a new side to her blossoms. The spark between them is undeniable and as the tension builds in the plot, so it does between them. I quickly became hooked by the storyline and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I can't wait for Cursed by Ice - the next book in the series. Highly recommended!
