Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author delves into the world of elite firefighters who thrive on danger and adrenaline—men and women who wouldn’t know how to live life if it wasn’t on the edge.

Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. But there’s also little else as thrilling—at least to Rowan Tripp. Being a Missoula smoke jumper is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. 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.

One of the best of this year’s rookie crop, Gulliver Curry is a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids’ arcade. And though Rowan, as a rule, doesn’t hook up with other smoke jumpers, Gull is convinced he can change her mind…

But everything is thrown off balance, 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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Some people find the meaning of their life on the beach; others in the office. For second-generation Missoula smoke jumper Rowan Tripp, fire is her element. Not even the death of her partner last year could change that, but this year, there are other complications. One arrives in the well-toned body of rookie firefighter Gulliver Curry. Rowan finds herself deeply drawn, yet puzzled by Gull's enigmatic ways. Her unforeseen passion unnerves her, but there is a closer threat at hand: An arsonist intent on hiding other crimes is loose in the wilderness. Every blaze rustling in the wind brings someone closer to death?. Nora Roberts at her best.

Publishers Weekly
This searing stand-alone from bestseller Roberts (The Search) celebrates the smoke jumpers of Missoula, Mont., who routinely risk life and limb to beat down raging forest fires. As close knit as any military combat unit, the "Zulies" include veteran Rowan Tripp, haunted by the loss of Jim Brayner, her onetime jump partner who was killed the previous season in a fall, and rookie Gulliver Curry, who soon earns the nickname "Fast Feet" for his speed and prowess. Threatening trouble is cook Dolly Brakeman, Jim's girlfriend, who blames Rowan for his death—and whose new baby may well be Jim's. Rowan and Gull grow closer as the team battles fires from Montana and Idaho to California and Alaska. Meanwhile, the Zulies are plagued by vandalism and sabotage as well as a killer with arson among his crimes. Roberts fans can expect another bestseller. (Apr.)
Library Journal
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.
Kirkus Reviews

A smoke jumper who puts her life on the line every fire season has more to fear this year than fire.

A member of the Missoula smoke jumpers since she was 18, Rowan Tripp is tough and gorgeous, proud to be a member of a close-knit team that fights fires all over the West. But last year her partner was killed in a bad jump, and now his girlfriend Dolly is blaming his death on Ro. When Dolly sprays Ro's room with pig's blood, she's fired from her cooking job on the base, stepping up their enmity. Although Ro takes comfort from her new relationship with rookie Gulliver Curry, an erudite Californian with a penchant for firefighting, she's shocked to find Dolly's charred body at a fire scene. Dolly's latest lover is the next body found. Just to make matters more personal, someone (Dolly's father?) takes a shot at Ro and Gull. The fiercely independent Ro is surprised at the trouble she's having in adjusting to a relationship that is about more than sex and dealing with the fact that her legendary father has suddenly fallen for a smart, sexy grandmother. When they realize that someone's putting the team in jeopardy by sabotaging equipment, Ro and Gull resolve to catch the killer.

Popular, prolific Roberts (The Search, 2010, etc.) delivers hair-raising smoke-jumping sequences along with the obligatory thrills, sex and a mystery even the greenest armchair sleuths will be able to solve.

The Barnes & Noble Review

From Eloisa James's "READING ROMANCE" column on The Barnes & Noble Review


I write about dukes. If one of my heroes was around today, he'd be wearing a Rolex, using imported dental floss, and instructing his driver to drop by Tiffany's. In short, I'm a hopeless snob, at least when it comes to fantasy. According to recent news stories, I'm not alone; apparently American girls are stalking British bars hoping to snag Prince Harry. It could be said that as a country, we have a fascination with the wealthy titled class. However, four terrific romances just convinced me that every author doesn't think a coronet is the equivalent of a halo. In these novels, characters do not draw their appeal from their other-worldliness, their dissimilarity from you and me, but from their down-to-earth normality.

Eileen Dreyer's Never a Gentleman looks squarely at the problem I lay out above. If we Americans think that high birth is sexy, what do we think of the middle class? Are regular people sexy? What if -- as in the premise of Dreyer's book -- a gentleman is forced to marry a plain soldier's daughter with callused hands and no knowledge of the ton? And what if his physical beauty matches his birth and wealth? Diccan Hilliard is appalled when he ends up married to an awkward, aging virgin. But Grace Fairchild is an utterly fascinating heroine: honest, strong, forthright, and deeply loving. Even when Diccan breaks her heart (in one of the most wrenching scenes of betrayal I've ever read), she doesn't run away. Grace astonished me, and she constantly did the same for Diccan. You'll find yourself rooting for Diccan to escape his "prison of perfection," as he labels it, and become Grace's lover, rather than just her husband.

Jodi Thomas's Texas Blue is also a historical, set in 1875, but being a western, it has no truck with titles. Even so, the novel circles around notions of class and hierarchy. Lewton Paterson is a gambling man whose lifelong dream is to marry "up," which in this case means finds his way into middle-class respectability. So he scrams a ride to Texas, and sets out to seduce his way into the McMurray ranching family. Lewton is the ultimate anti-hero: "in twenty-eight years he'd seen nothing worth risking his life for, nothing he loved worth dying to protect…life was a game and the man leaving the table with the most chips won." As it turns out, his targeted bride, Emily McMurray, is determined never to marry, so when Lewton arrives on his courting mission, he actually meets her friend Tamela disguised as Emily. Lewton hires the real Emily (for $5/hour) to teach him about ranching, and finds himself falling for a girl who cannot give him the respectable life he wants so badly -- or so he thinks. Texas Blue is a story of a very dear, big-hearted if bumbling, gambler and an exasperated woman who reluctantly teaches him all about ranching and falls in love at the same time. You'll finish this book with a big sigh. Lewton is brave, handsome, hairy (to Emily's mind) -- anything but a gentleman, but as he says in the end, he's also the "luckiest man alive."

As a romance writer, it's a bit hard to write about Nora Roberts. How can someone as prolific as Nora (as with royalty, a single name suffices) write one of the best novels I read all month? It doesn't seem fair! Chasing Fire is a terrific romance, one of her very best, in my opinion. Nora's heroine, Rowan Tripp, is the kind of firefighter who leaps out of a plane to put out forest wildfires. When she's not chasing fires, she trains the rookies -- one of whom is Gulliver Curry. This novel takes the question of class and compounds it: Rowan is, practically speaking, Gulliver's boss. And as she tells him, she doesn't hook up with "rookies, snookies or other smoke jumpers." Nora doesn't always choose to write heart-pounding books about gritty, brave characters (her bridal books feature charming, rich characters). But there is no one who does rough-and-tumble suspense better than she does. Rowan is the kind of woman who can hold her own with high-testosterone firefighters: she can knock a man on his ass, knock back six shots of tequila, and turn down the sexiest man on the team because, as she says, "once you mix sex into it, even smart people can get stupid." Gull is a match for her, though: persistent, charming, and downright heroic once it becomes clear that a murderer lurks in the ranks of the smoke jumpers. I challenge you not to stay up late reading Chasing Fire: it kept me turning pages until 3 AM.

Jill Sorenson's The Edge of Night takes class and compounds it with race. April Ortiz is a Hispanic single mom who works at a strip joint and lives in Chula Vista, a city near San Diego that is exploding with heat and poverty. Noah Young is a white officer assigned to a patrol car in Chula Vista. He's not an undercover FBI agent, demon hunter or werewolf; she isn't an heiress in disguise. They are exactly what they appear to be: hard-working, struggling, regular people. The Edge of Night is an absolutely riveting depiction of life in Chula Vista. I loved this novel -- the heat of the city, the pure decency of Noah and April, the slow way they came together and fell in love in the face of their differences. There is nothing ducal about Noah. But Sorenson taught me to love a man who mutters "screw it," and then gets up his courage to fall on his knees and pull a black velvet box from his pocket. There aren't any Rolexes or limousines in this novel -- unless they belong to drug dealers -- but there's a flash-fire kind of love and passion that is pure romance.

Of course, there's a place for fantasy in the romance genre -- whether the fantastic element involves vampire teeth or a gilded carriage. But we should always keep a corner of our bookcase for novels like these: ones that reaffirm that romance isn't confined to the landed gentry, and that money doesn't make people happy -- love does. When Rowan and Gull are running through a fire and she thinks about his eyes -- "Eyes that didn't lie…Eyes she could trust" -- it strips glittering decoration from the genre and speaks to its heart. In the end, we all want someone to love, someone to trust. These novels speak to the joy of finding it, no matter what your race, gender, or class may be.

Meet the Author

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestselling In Death series written under the pen name J.D. Robb. There are more than 400 million copies of her books in print.

Biography

Not only has Nora Roberts written more bestsellers than anyone else in the world (according to Publishers Weekly), she’s also created a hybrid genre of her own: the futuristic detective romance. And that’s on top of mastering every subgenre in the romance pie: the family saga, the historical, the suspense novel. But this most prolific and versatile of authors might never have tapped into her native talent if it hadn't been for one fateful snowstorm.

As her fans well know, in 1979 a blizzard trapped Roberts at home for a week with two bored little kids and a dwindling supply of chocolate. To maintain her sanity, Roberts started scribbling a story -- a romance novel like the Harlequin paperbacks she'd recently begun reading. The resulting manuscript was rejected by Harlequin, but that didn't matter to Roberts. She was hooked on writing. Several rejected manuscripts later, her first book was accepted for publication by Silhouette.

For several years, Roberts wrote category romances for Silhouette -- short books written to the publisher's specifications for length, subject matter and style, and marketed as part of a series of similar books. Roberts has said she never found the form restrictive. "If you write in category, you write knowing there's a framework, there are reader expectations," she explained. "If this doesn't suit you, you shouldn't write it. I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure."

Roberts never violated the reader's expectations, but she did show a gift for bringing something fresh to the romance formula. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred (1981), had as its heroine a strong-willed horse groom, in contrast to the fluttering young nurses and secretaries who populated most romances at the time. But Roberts's books didn't make significant waves until 1985, when she published Playing the Odds, which introduced the MacGregor clan. It was the first bestseller of many.

Roberts soon made a name for herself as a writer of spellbinding multigenerational sagas, creating families like the Scottish MacGregors, the Irish Donovans and the Ukrainian Stanislaskis. She also began working on romantic suspense novels, in which the love story unfolds beneath a looming threat of violence or disaster. She grew so prolific that she outstripped her publishers' ability to print and market Nora Roberts books, so she created an alter ego, J.D. Robb. Under the pseudonym, she began writing romantic detective novels set in the future. By then, millions of readers had discovered what Publishers Weekly called her "immeasurable diversity and talent."

Although the style and substance of her books has grown, Roberts remains loyal to the genre that launched her career. As she says, "The romance novel at its core celebrates that rush of emotions you have when you are falling in love, and it's a lovely thing to relive those feelings through a book."

Good To Know

Roberts still lives in the same Maryland house she occupied when she first started writing -- though her carpenter husband has built on some additions. She and her husband also own Turn the Page Bookstore Café in Boonsboro, Maryland. When Roberts isn't busy writing, she likes to drop by the store, which specializes in Civil War titles as well as autographed copies of her own books.

Roberts sued fellow writer Janet Dailey in 1997, accusing her of plagiarizing numerous passages of her work over a period of years. Dailey paid a settlement and publicly apologized, blaming stress and a psychological disorder for her misconduct.

    It's Ok

    I love my Nook; however, I could just as easily purchased the same books in store for at least $1 cheaper. I think the prices are starting to get ridiculous. The whole point of purchasing the Nook was to save money and space. So far, the only thing i am saving on is Space because i am paying more for the books than i would in store. The prices should at least be the same as they would be in store

    Chasing a good read?

    Chasing Fire is a very good read. The story line is new one that Nora Roberts explored. Roberts did a very thorough research about smoke jumpers and she portrayed them in a way that I would be able to understand their angst, tribulations, and success when they fought and exstinguish a fire. Very well written, and you get a bonas with Ro's father falling in love. Totally recommend this book even though the ebook is so expensive! If you're not willing to pay for the ebook, get the paperback when it comes out! You don't want to miss out on Roberts' new book!

    Rip Off due to pricing

    I am a huge Nora Roberts reader, but if I am going to spend these prices on a book it will not be an e-version but one I can touch and share. I have found that I am buying less books now that I have the Nook. I feel will only download ones the same or cheaper than I can buy at my local stores. Most of the NookBooks are the same price as the published prices for regular books.

    agree with anonymous(there are many, LOL)

    the more and more i bought i kept noticing the prices getting higher and higher until a lot of them passed the soft cover price. i was sold by the fact that they are or were cheaper than actually purchasing the book. at the present there is almost no reason to own the nook. it is in fact, in a lot of cases, with the books i read to purchase them in store because its cheaper and then i have a "real" lend me book. most of the books on nook are not lendable and the ones i can lend are in fact not lendable in the sense they try to sell on. its deceptive. dont get me wrong i still love my nook but the balance is shifting. reading what i wnat to read while in public without people nosing about is still worth something.

    Same Old, Same Old

    I am having a hard time reading this book. I would like to see something unique - not the same old characters with different names in different settings. All her characters are rough and tough, hard working, harder partying - especially the women. They are becoming obnoxiously arrogant. And I am really tired of the dialogue. I would like to occasionally see a character talk like a real person. I have loved her books in the past - there is nothing she has written that I have not read - but I'm not sure I care enough about these characters to even finish the book.

    Too Expensive!

    While I love Nora Roberts, I'm refusing to purchase her new release until the price goes down. I bought my nook to help me save money and end my book storage problems, but with new releases priced as high as they are - especially when what we're talking about is an electronic file! - I'm not sure that I'm really saving any money. I'm sure that this is another good one, but I'm waiting until my local library has it available for download or the Nook download price goes down.

    I read everything that Nora Roberts writes but as prolific writer (I read a book every other day)but I will not pay hardcover prices for an e-book. So while I wait for the price to come down I will read the under 5 dollar books and the free ones. Not as good but hey a girl's gotta read.

    Once again Nora Roberts affirms she is one of the best romantic suspense authors on the market for the past two decades

    A chip off the old block of her legendary dad, since she turned eighteen, Rowan Tripp has been a Missoula, Montana Zulies smoke jumper who parachutes from a plane with her comrades in arms to land in the middle of an out of control blaze. She loves her job, loves being on the edge and the adrenaline rush, but mostly she relishes helping to save lives and property.

    This year is different as there are more fires, deaths including her partner, and injuries than since she joined. It is also the year in which she meets rookie Gulliver "Gull" Curry, who falls in love with Rowan. She has feelings for the newcomer with an Ivy League vocabulary, but fears them because love hurts and he may not have the staying power she would need. Yet together they share danger and desire while trying to end the fiery reign of a maniacal arsonist with a vendetta against the Zulies.

    Once again Nora Roberts affirms she is one of the best romantic suspense authors on the market for the past two decades even with a theme used many times before (see Deadly Heat by Cynthia Eden). A major part of the freshness comes from having the lead female as the experienced mentor and the male as the rookie in training; however the key comes from the author's ability to tell an exhilarating tale in which readers will be jumping from planes into an inferno. Loaded with action especially the drops into the infernos and filled with a fiery romance, fans will believe they are in Big Sky country as a smoke jumper.

    Another winner by Roberts

    Nora Roberts is hands down my favorite author. I would've given a 5 star rating except for one aspect of this story. The protagonist in the story behaves the way he does due to a manipulative woman who basically messed with his head and leading to his downfall. As there are far too many manipulative people in the real world, the book left me with unsettling feelings regarding those toxic people we all have in our lives. Otherwise, the plot is strong, romance is great, and we get to learn a lot about what it's like to be a fire jumper. Scary stuff!

    A good edition to Ms Roberts/J.D Robb's mammoth volume of work. Characters to invest heart and soul, a quick, interesting storyline with the usual excellent research. Another winner. Moving on to a serious objection to the bulk of the reviews: QUIT whining about your ebook while giving NO book review! This ain't the place! Flagging every one...

    Once again reviews are filled with complaints about cost of the Ebook, it is not more than the hardcover from what I can see, it is $5 cheaper and you don't pay any taxes which for me at 7% is an additional savings. If you don't want to pay for the book, don't! Wait until it comes out in paperback or better still go get it at the library for free!

    Great Book. For those not happy about the e-book pricing....it's not just Nook.....Amazon's Kindle has the same pricing for this book. Not certain that that pricing is set by the bookstore....potentially is set by the publisher. At any rate........B&N is no higher than the competition.
