Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

Marsh starts a new series with this tale featuring sexy smokejumpers, a minor suspense plot, high school classmates reunited and some interesting firefighting information. The tension between the bad boy, with wanderlust and commitment issues, and the reserved hometown beauty, who wants a family and a happily-ever-after ending, may get a little weary. But, it is an entertaining read with likable characters.

When Jack’s adoptive mother calls with a request for firefighting help, Jack and his foster brothers head home to small-town California. There has been a flurry of unusual fires in this already dry, high-risk area, and Jack finds that the fires are centered around a lavender farm. He is surprised to find the farm has recently been purchased by Lily, the high school girl he kissed a decade ago — and hasn’t been able to forget since. Lily moved back home after a series of unexplained fires drove her out of San Francisco, on the run from a stalker. Can the incidents be connected? (BRAVA, Nov., 288 pp., $14.00)

A very explosive story!

Thanks to the publisher, Kensington, and NetGalley for the chance to read this!

This story quickly caught my attention and took off at a sprint. It is the first in a new series about smoke-jumper firefighters. If the rest are even half as good as this one, then Ms. Marsh has a winning series on her hands. Well written, intense, and full of suspense, this story was on FIRE (pun intended).

I’m not sure which I enjoyed most the romance, action or suspense. I found myself racing through the book trying to discover the stalker/serial arsonist was. The story was seriously intense up all the way through - I thought this was a fantastic read.

This is the third series by this author I have read & enjoyed! I look forward to MANY more books written by her! She seems to have a series for everyone (A) Fallen, for her Paranormal readers; (B) Dawson Brothers, for her western readers, & this one for her suspense readers.
