Playing With Fire - Gena Showalter

A slacker waitress has an encounter with a scientist, and this leaves her with the beginnings of the development of elemental superpowers.

She then comes into contact with an agent for the OASS, who tells her what has happened to her, and what the story will be from now on. He, of course, is no normal guy, being a superhuman shapeshifter himself. Naturally, he also gives her the horn, but has an ex-wife and kid to complicate matters.

Showalter seems to be able to put a bit more depth of plot into her books than some, that makes it easier to take.
