Overview

*** Best Inspirational Novel of the Year Finalist for 2012 RONE Award ***

A terrifying past imprisoned Maxine Bartlett all her adult life, shackling her with fear anytime a man even touched her.

In a spontaneous weekend, she unintentionally elopes with an unlikely groom. After a magical wedding night filled with love and passion, "Maxi" finally discards her dreadful chains.

She doesn't know that her new husband has turned his back on God. Worried over how the world might see the completely unexpected - and some would certainly say inappropriate - marriage, in his pride he promises Maxine a quiet annulment.

Unwilling to let their marriage disappear as if it never happened, Maxine refuses to cooperate. Seeking God's will, she moves in with him and informs him that when he decides to act like her husband again, he will find his loving wife waiting for him right there in their home. As the days stretch into weeks, the newlyweds slowly begin to trust and even love each other.

Then, just as they begin to live the "happily ever after" love story that neither of them ever dreamed could come true, a sudden and nightmarish catastrophe strikes that could wreck everything. Will her husband realize that he must trust God once more? Can he find peace and strength enough to carry them through the flames?

Editorial Reviews

Romancing the Book - Desere Steenberg
The author tells and showed me as reader just how important having God in our lives is. I loved how the author expressed the characters emotions with such passion,it had me in tears both of joy and sadness.
Christian Fiction Book Reviews - Teisha Priest
One of the things I appreciate about Hallee’s characters in Emerald Fire is that they are very real and imperfect people. Maxine and Barry each have spiritual struggles they must work through over the course of the story. I also liked the fact that they faced the consequences of their decisions. The message that God works in every circumstance is encouraging and uplifting.

Meet the Author

Hallee Bridgeman lives with her husband and their three children in small town Kentucky. When she's not writing Christian romance novels, she blogs about all things cooking and homemaking at Hallee the Homemaker.

Hallee started writing when her oldest child and only daughter was a baby, but a busy professional career and being the wife of a deployed soldier had her shelve her books for another time. Two more children, a cross country move, and God's perfect timing brought the books off of the shelf to be dusted off and presented to you now.

Hallee loves coffee, campy action movies, and regular date nights with her husband. Above all else, she loves God with all of her heart, soul, mind, and strength; has been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ; and relies on the presence of the Holy Spirit.

    As in Sapphire Ice and Greater than Rubies, Hallee Bridgeman tak

    As in Sapphire Ice and Greater than Rubies, Hallee Bridgeman takes us deep into the lives of the three sisters and the men they love. Enjoyable is not a strong enough word. Enthralling is more accurate. I couldn’t stop reading until I found out how it all ended.
    Emerald Fire, Maxi’s story, offers unexpected plot twists causing a rollercoaster of emotion. Sarah’s story in Topaz Heat is full of excitement and suspense. Combine these with the continuing saga of Tony and his sweet Robin, the Jewel Series characters will live long in my mind. Hallee’s way of writing from the depths of the characters hearts and souls make them real, like friends I’ve known all my life.
    Cinderella stories at the finest, the transformation of Robin, Maxine and Sarah from a childhood of poverty and abuse to one of love and spiritual fulfillment are captivating, leaving me wanting to know them more, better, and share them with others. I forget I’m reading fiction. It’s more like real-life.
    Hallee, you surprised me. I guessed what Sarah’s story might be like but Maxi’s? What a great plot twist. Thank you so much for sharing your heart with readers through this series. What a treasure.
    I received this book from Book Fun Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Okay, I have to admit, I¿m becoming very biased when it comes to

    Okay, I have to admit, I’m becoming very biased when it comes to Hallee Bridgeman’s books. They’re all so good! I’m having a hard time coming up with something new to say about them. And I’m trying very hard not to give anything away, which for this one is difficult, since I know who her husband is (and I’m not telling). I’ve become very attached to the characters and I love watching them grow and change throughout each subsequent book. I also really like how Mrs. Bridgeman handles the faith element in each of her books. She doesn’t overwhelm the story with it. There is just the right amount without being what some would consider “preachy.”
    If I had one negative thing to say about the book it’s that I didn’t appreciate Maxine’s husband’s attitude. It made sense and I understood, but I wanted to fuss at him to get his act together and focus on what’s right in front of him. He did finally get it near the end, so I’m just nitpicking because I figured I should try to be somewhat objective. :)
    I highly recommend this book and the others in the series!
    I received this book through The Book Club Network for my honest review, which I have given.
