Callie Hayes is the hardworking manager of the Blue Flame, Arizona's most remote, relaxing guest ranch. She's given everything to the ranch, body, heart, and soul-three things that go haywire when her sexy employer suddenly shows up. Their intense, stormy past has taught Callie to never mix business with pleasure. But something about Jake is different now . . .

San Diego firefighter Jake Rawlings knows the ranch he inherited from his father is safe in Callie's capable hands. After being injured in a high-profile rescue, Jake decides to recover in solitude at the Blue Flame. He may have left the fires behind, but he hasn't escaped the heat; Callie is just as hot and irresistible as he remembers. Now coming home doesn't seem like the best idea-as the sparks between Jake and Callie threaten to burn out of control . . .

    Awesome book

    Blue Flame by Jill Shalvis makes the worlds of firefighting and ranch life come alive. ____ Jake Rawlins needs to hide from the press after his recent firefighting rescue. He decides to spend some time at the ranch Blue Flame that his late father left to him. But the ranch isn¿t the quite place he thought it would be since he can¿t get thoughts of his ranch manager Callie out of his mind._____ Callie Hayes has made a place for herself at Blue Flame. With the owner seldom showing up she had free reign. Now Jake has come back to stay for a few months, upsetting her routine and peace of mind. Jake and Callie shared one night of passion a few years ago that Callie thought was behind them. But with seeing each other daily the sparks start to fly. _____ Blue Flame is a fast paced story that keeps you in its gripe till the last page. The chemistry sizzles and the dialogue will keep you laughing. This story will touch your heart and stay with you long after its over.

    A Five Flame Review from Sizzling Romances!

    Hi. I wrote a long review, but I guess it was too long for this site, lol! I have so much to say about this wonderful book - but I'll just include these paragraphs: Callie and Jake have a connection so acute, that it nearly burns through the pages. So, while Callie's trying to fight her feelings for Jake, he is realizing that he'll never go back to firefighting. The pain in his heart breaks Callie's heart, and the reader will feel the pain as well. This is one of the elements that really makes BLUE FLAME work - Callie's compassion. Despite this sadness, it is very exciting to watch Jake take on new things daily, even though he is still in a lot of pain. There are also enigmatic employees, some with deep-rooted problems, but with Callie's special touch, she's made them all a family. Yet the mystery remains - who's sabotaging the BLUE FLAME? BLUE FLAME is an adventurous book in a very different way, but an adventure nonetheless. Part of the adventure is the various groups that are paying guests at the BLUE FLAME and the activities planned for them, while Jake struggles to fit in. The other part of this being an adventure, is trying to discover who is trying to hurt the ranch, including Callie. Ms. Shalvis has written her characters remarkably well and watching them evolve draws the reader right into the story. The reader feels the pain, the joys, and the sadness of all the characters - not just Jake and Callie, but also the other members of the staff, and the troubles they are facing. This character-driven book still has a very strong plot and is an engaging read from beginning to end. I am very eager for the next book in this exciting series, as I'm positive Ms. Shalvis will continue to create compelling characters in a story that deeply hits the heart of the reader.

    Blue Flare's Song

    Look, Nymphali, at all of the things you've done<p>The bonds you've made... have stayed strong all along<p>You remind me so much of my own past, and soon,<p>Also my current life too.<p>For it is time for you, my dear,<p>Accomplished enough to be standing right here,<p>To go beyond to your new life, and become, what was inside all along...<p><br>To the tune of Pallet Town's theme. I imagined the HGSS version if there's any difference. I have no idea why I made up a song parallel to Celestia's Ballad for Flare to sing before Nymphali's ascension, but I did. And it sounds cool in a sort of-Celestia voice in my head. Anyways.

    A large grey tom stalked in, fur rippling in weird way. A white pattern laced his pelt, making it look like he had cracks aling his body. Ice blue eyes sharp, he gazed around curiously.
