USA TODAY bestselling author Kathryn Shay spent five years riding fire trucks with a large city fire department, eating in their firehouses and interviewing hundreds of America's Bravest. Read the novels that resulted from her intense relationship with firefighters!

“Powerhouse author Shay follows up AFTER THE FIRE with another dramatic and dynamic thriller. Her complex and unforgettable characters breathe life into this truly intense novel.” RT Book Reviews

Fire Chief Noah Callahan can’t understand what’s going on in his department. A series of arson fires, broken equipment and unusual accidents plague the firefighters. It’s no surprise when he comes under investigation by Captain Eve Woodward from the Office of Fire Prevention and Control. She arrives in Hidden Cove believing he’s guilty, but soon begins to respect, understand and care about this very good man. A second storyline follows hotshot Zach Malvaso as he befriends, then falls in love with tough, aloof firefighter Casey Brennan. Together Casey and Zach confront their demons and alter the course of their lives.

"Shay has crafted another gripping tale, and her many fans will be delighted to return to Hidden Cove and see what's happened to their favorite characters since AFTER THE FIRE." Shelley Mosley Booklist

“An exhilarating, fiery romance.” Midwest Book Reviews

"Shay’s powerful characters and emotional topics strike a chord with her readers and have earned her a well-deserved place among the top romance authors.” Waldenbooks Romantic Reader

Editorial Reviews

Carol Carter
“Oh, the story is wonderful as Kathryn Shay sends readers through the pages to the beautiful ending we expect from a romance story. Once again I'm compelled to reward this author with A PERFECT TEN, an award given only to those novels we consider excellent, and well above average. I strongly urge you to buy this book, as well as the first one in the series.”
RT Book Reviews
"Powerhouse author Shay follows up last year's After the Fire with another dramatic and dynamic thriller. Her complex and unforgettable characters breathe real life into this truly intense novel."
Best Reviews
"ON THE LINE is an exhilarating fiery romance that centers on the investigation, but also enables the audience to taste the danger of firefighting. The story line contains two romances including one between two fire fighters who deserve a second chance as well as the conflict of love vs. duty starring the ethical lead couple. Although the "motives" for all the troubles seems too minor when compared to the cost, readers will appreciate this dynamichomage to real heroes."
Fresh Fiction
"What can I say? This author blows me away with the depth of her writing talent. Ms. Shay continues the superb firefighter trilogy in excellent form, again creating complex charcters, sensual relationships and exciting plots that will caputre a readers' attention from the first page to the last."

    Highly recommend this series of books and this author.

    I've read all the books in this series and enjoyed them all very much. I like reading the books on my Nook as I can take it wherever I go and read while waiting in lines, etc.

    Great read. As Always from Ms. Shay she keeps you on your reading til the end . If I told you more about the storyline and characters, you won't buy the book and read it; so go ahead buy it, read it, you won't regret it; in fact you'll be buying more of her books as I do.

    Excellent

    I loved this book. I didn't know that there was a book before this one so I'm reading them out of order. Can't wait for the next one in the series to come out.

    Good book...

    Following the devastating fire detailed in After the Fire, lives were forever changed and the fire department stands in a poor light that is worsened by accidents and fires that have lead to deaths among the fire crews. Sent to investigate and nail the chief, Eve is not in a mood to fall in love, but Noah Callahan is not what he seems at first or what she expected. Her investigation's focus begins to shift to finding out who is out to ruin a good man. Concurrently with this plotline, Casey Brennan's romance is played out. She has always seemed to be one of the guys, but when a softer side emerges as she tries to be the mom her daughters need, more than one realizes Casey is no guy, but the one she wants to see her as a woman has baggage and a heart that is bogged down with jealousy. *** Although Ms Shay is always worth reading and never fails to present an enjoyable story, her purpose would have been better served by splitting this into two books to focus on each plotline on its own. Nonetheless, as usual, she has a compelling story with three dimensional characters and situations. ***

    more from this reviewer

    Great romantic suspense

    Because of the many fires well above the norm especially a deadly one that has ripped through Hidden Cove New York, Mayor Johnson requested the State investigate. The Office of Fire Prevention and Control sends Eve Woodward to learn what is going on in the small community. Her first hunch is that Fire Chief Noah Callahan is on the take receiving kickbacks that have led to equipment failure and inadequate building inspection................................. When Eve meets Noah¿s youthful ¿wife¿ and ¿child¿, she realizes he further fits the profile of a corrupt firefighter, as his spouse is young enough to be his daughter. However, as she becomes acquainted with Noah and observes how everyone in his sphere thinks highly of him she begins to wonder what is really going on especially when she learns that his ¿wife¿ is his daughter and his ¿child¿ is his granddaughter. Soon a fire burns between the investigator and the target, but that does not prevent Eve from seeking the truth even though it keeps adding up to the undeniable fact that Noah is the culprit................................ ON THE LINE is an exhilarating fiery romance that centers on the investigation, but also enables the audience to taste the danger of firefighting. The story line contains two romances including one between two fire fighters who deserve a second chance as well as the conflict of love vs. duty starring the ethical lead couple. Although the ¿motives¿ for all the troubles seems too minor when compared to the cost (ten dead in the Sinco fire ¿ see AFTER THE FIRE), readers will appreciate this dynamic homage to real heroes.......................... Harriet Klausner
