Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there's also little else as thrilling ? at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan's blood: her father is a legend in the field. She's been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home ? even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering in the air. Fortunately, this year's rookie crop is among the strongest ever ? and Gulliver Curry's one of the best. He's also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids? arcade. He came to Missoula to follow in the footsteps of Lucas ?Iron Man? Tripp, yet he's instantly more fascinated by his hero's daughter. Rowan, as a rule, doesn't hook up with other smoke jumpers, but Gull is convinced he can change her mind. And damn if he doesn't make a good case to be an exception to the rule. Everything is thrown off balance, though, when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year's tragedy. Rowan knows she can't complicate things with Gull ? any distractions in the air or on the ground could be lethal. But if she doesn't find someone she can lean on when the heat gets intense, her life may go down in flames.

Review by Library Journal (2011-04-15)

Rowan Tripp, like her legendary firefighter father, is a veteran Missoula, MT, smoke jumper, and she knows nothing can match the thrill of leaping into the heart of a forest blaze and beating it into submission. Even the lingering grief over the death of her jump partner can't keep her from feeling the rush. But from the moment she connects with rookie hotshot firefighter Gulliver Curry, she knows this season will be different-she just never expects it to take a dark, murderous turn. But someone is out to make trouble, and people will be dead before the fire season is over.

Verdict: In her inimitable style, Roberts pens an incendiary tale of murder, mayhem, and life on the rugged Western fire lines. The abundance of firefighting and smoke jumping detail lightened with a pair of delightful love stories will keep readers entranced. With a nod to Blue Smoke and Montana Sky, Roberts combines the scenic grandeur of the West with the high-stakes allure of taming a raging "dragon" and has created another enthralling romantic thriller. Roberts (Happy Ever After) lives in Keedysville, MD.
