Overview

It takes a special kind of hero to be a smoke jumper. To take the greatest risks. To live or die in the raging heat of the moment. And it takes a special kind of woman to love him. . .

Where There's Smoke. . .

For Jack Donovan, smoke jumping is a way of life. He lives for the adrenaline rush--the thrill of flying over the burning California hills, the intensity of diving straight into the inferno, the glory of taming the forces of nature. Love is a distant ember compared to the feeling he gets fighting fires--until an emergency call from his hometown brings him face to face with the one woman he can't forget. . .

There's Fire

Lily never got over the handsome rogue who once kissed her senseless--and then left. She vowed she was done with love-'em-and-leave-'em men and small town life. Until a series of malicious fires set by a stalker has her running home to hide. Now, their summer is heating up as Jack fights to save her from the stalker's fiery threats and to convince her to give the passion between them a second chance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Paranormal romance author Marsh (His Dark Bond) explores the alpha-male-rich world of smoke jumpers in her pulse-pounding first contemporary romantic thriller. Firefighter and smoke-jumper Jack Donovan returns to Strong, the tiny eastern California hamlet where he spent his teenage years, at the request of his adoptive mother: suspicious fires are occurring, and the town doesn’t have the resources to deal with them. Lily Cortez, Jack’s onetime love interest, has also returned to Strong, leaving a high-powered advertising job in San Francisco after being stalked by a firebug. Lily buys a local lavender farm and tries to start her life over. When her stalker finds her, Jack and his adoptive brothers immediately move to protect Lily, and Lily and Jack quickly reconnect. Marsh leads readers through a hair-raising series of events on her way to the shocking but appropriate ending. Agent: Roberta Brown of the Brown Literary Agency. (Nov.)

    A very explosive story!

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


    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.


    Disclosure: This ebook was provided to me free of charge through NetGalley for the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments, and ratings are my own.

    Irritating dialog

    The story was pretty good, but the main character's habit of saying "baby" in darn near every sentence really bugged me. Very annoying, as if he couldn't complete a single expression without calling her "baby." I skimmed large chunks of the story in parts where the dialog took up way too much space without actually advancing the story.

    Skipped as many pages as I read

    If the author would have spent as much time developing the story as writing sex scenes, this could have been a good book. The story line certainly had good potential but in nearly every chapter, I skipped over pages and pages of sex scenes beecause if you read the first one then the rest were same. Boring.

    Ridiculous

    Story was very predictable and where the writer could have made it interesting, she failed terribly. Sex scenes were ridiculous and if he calls her "Baby" one more time, I'll vomit. Very immature and disappointing. I won't read anything by this author again.
