Overview

Robert and Sam are back in this sequel to On Fire! Fire Chief Robert is completely unaware that Sam is having trouble with the residents of their small Canadian town. He doesn't hear any of the barbs that come Sam's way about them living together in an openly gay relationship.

Much younger and not as well-loved by the whole town, Sam feels pretty much like an outsider, and things get rougher for him when Robert has an accident on the job. Sam finds out that some folks would prefer to see him gone, and some feel like he's not such a great influence on his third grade students.

When Robert finds out about Sam's troubles, he sets out to put things right, working toward finding Sam the acceptance he so desperately craves, both in the community and in their own home. Can Robert make Sam understand how much he cares? Can Sam handle the new demands placed on his life by Robert's new commitment?

On Fire 2: Still Burning opens a window on a life, and love, that are worth it, no matter how much Sam and Robert get burned.

Robert loved his job.

He loved being a fireman, and more than that, he loved being the chief of the volunteer brigade at Port Wilson, a little town in northern British Columbia. Okay, there could be more fires to fight, though for the greater good it was a good thing that there wasn't, but other than that it was great. He didn't even really mind the paperwork.

And he got to teach classes and lead drills and he didn't have to share a dorm room with a bunch of other guys.

He and Sam lived in the house next to the fire station, and while he was on call pretty much 24/7, he really only worked from eight until three, coincidentally the hours that Sam was off teaching at the school.

Life was good.

Of course, at the end of a Saturday of drills he was singing a different tune entirely. He was hot and sweaty, filthy with soot, hungry, headachy and just plain growly.

"See you on Tuesday, Chief," Bill Anders called out, and Robert frowned.

"Tuesday?"

"Town Council meeting at four?"

"Oh, right. Yeah, see you then." He nodded and managed a smile or two as the last of his volunteers headed off. He had to check to make sure they'd put the equipment back properly, and poke the fire pit to make sure there wasn't even a hint of a spark left before he could finally strip off his gear. He hung it up on its hooks in the fire station, his clothing absolutely soaked with sweat. Man, they'd really worked it out there. Or maybe he was just starting to feel his age.

He had a birthday creeping up on him. The big four-oh.

Rolling his head on his neck, Robert locked up the fire station and walked over to the house, intent on a beer, a shower and collapsing.And if he was really lucky, maybe Sam had supper going and he could steal a bite or two.

He'd barely cleared the door, stepping into their bright little kitchen, when a lithe body grabbed at him, pushing him into the wall and almost climbing up his legs. "I was watching," Sam said, just before he started licking at Robert's neck. "Jesus, I thought you'd never get here."
