    Entertaining! Dramatic!

    Gable McCoy, volunteer firefighter, answers a call for rescue after a tornado struck. Local music teacher, Erin Richards survived the destruction, though she is now trapped under what is left of her home. Disheartened to learn she is unable to free Erin from the wreckage, Gable steadfastedly refuses to leave her until additional help can arrive. As the night passes, the two women begin to learn about each other and a tentative friendship is formed. Regretfully Gable has to leave when called to respond to another disaster and is unable to return to Erin¿s. An action which seperates the two women for quite some time. As Gable goes about her daily life, Erin is constantly in her thoughts. Along with regret for never having gotten to meet Erin in person. Unbenownst to Gable, Erin has been on a mission to find her. A fact that thoroughly pleases Gable and sends her on one of her own to find Erin. A task that soon proves insurmountable and without the hoped for outcome. More time passes and Erin is still nowhere to be found. Why? What happened to her? Has Gable lost what she hoped would be a friend? Just as Gable has resigned herself to her loss, she learns there is a new rookie at the fire department. Guess whom it turns out to be? Erin! Overjoyed, the two women are thrilled to finally meet face-to-face and set off in pursuit of the friendship began so many months ago. However, it¿s not long before Gable realizes she¿s in trouble. She has new feelings for Erin. And for once in her life, she¿s unsure of what to do. Erin was married at one time so she¿s straight¿or is she? As Gable tries to figure out the answer it seems Mother Nature has her own agenda regarding the two women. Will Mother Nature win or will Fate step in and allow both women to realize their true feelings for each other? Allow them a chance at a life together? Or will she win in an act gone rampant and claim them both? Kim Baldwin, first novel Hunter¿s Pursuit, offered readers a dramatic, suspenseful tale. Force of Nature, the second book by this talented writer, once again offers readers more of the same, while inserting just the right amount of romance into the mix. Along with a new novel released this year, Whitewater Rendezvous, Kim also provided `intriguing¿ works in two anthologies: Stolen Moments: Erotic Interludes 2 and Lessons in Love: Erotic Interludes 3. Her next book, Flight Risk, due out in 2007 is surely to be another great offering to a very appreciative reading audience.
