Overview

Nothing is hotter than desire . . .

Raised as an army brat, bush pilot Lyndie Anderson has always been independent-and alone. Living only for her plane and the open sky, she eagerly rushes to help save the people of a small Mexican town from a raging wildfire. Yet when her cargo is a drop-dead gorgeous fireman, Lyndie suddenly feels a burning desire-one that may ground her for the first time in her life.

Firefighter Griffin Moore has been haunted by the loss of his crew in an Idaho inferno. Scarred by survivor's guilt, he became a recluse who hid himself away from working-or being close to anyone. But when his brother convinces him to volunteer for another fire, he encounters a brave, beautiful woman who sparks a simmering passion. Now in the hot, dangerous conflagration of the Mexican jungle, Griffin and Lyndie must discover a way to rescue a town-and a love that may save them . . .

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
A fiercely independent female bush pilot, a male firefighter still battling a case of the nerves, and a serious blaze in a small Mexican town are the starter fuels for this first book in Jill Shalvis' hot new series about firefighters. Danger gets the adrenaline pumping for both Lyndie Anderson and Griffin Moore, but it's going to take a whole lot of courage for their budding romance to overcome the battle scars from previous losses and the baggage from long-held notions of personal freedom. Readers who enjoy fast-paced, contemporary romance laced with courage and adventure will find they've come to the right book. Ginger Curwen

    With a very sad and poor attempt at writing, White Heat is juve

    With a very sad and poor attempt at writing, White Heat is juvenile and predictable. I found this book in a Cafe where you can read for free. Don't waste your money.. Just look for it in the Clearance Bin of a used book store. I'm sure they won't have it in the Library.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Griffin Moore lost his sense of self a year ago when twelve fellow wildfire fighters lost their lives on a mountain in Idaho . He's pulled away from his family and friends, doing nothing more than sitting on the beach in California and mourning his loss. That is, until his brother, Brody, shows up, somehow managing to talk him into volunteering to fight a fire in the Mexico mountain lands. <BR/><BR/>His pilot to San Peubla, the village hoping to escape the burning acreage, is Lyndie Anderson, a tough-as-nails woman who was raised by her military grandfather--and has the "need no one" act down to a science. <BR/><BR/>I LOVED this book! Not just the sexual chemistry between Griffin and Lyndie, which is undoubtedly hot, but the way the characters were portrayed--their own private needs, desires, and demons. <BR/><BR/>You won't go wrong with this book. There's action/adventure in the form of the fight against the wildfire; passion not only with the budding relationship between Griffin and Lyndie but that of some important secondary characters, as well; and just a lot of feel-good story interspersed with the kinds of ups and downs that make people tick.

    One hot read! (And I'm not talkin' about the fire!)

    Great book - fast paced - I flew through it in one sitting. Loved Lyndie and Griffin. Jill Shalvis has such a great way of making you fall for her characters, flaws and all. In fact, it's their lack of perfection that draws me in and makes me root for them. I can't wait for Blue Flame!

    Good read

    You really felt for both main characters in this book. I felt it could have gone a little deeper emotionally, but it still was good and heartwarming.

    Ms. Andre did it again. Great, great story that is full of love, passion, humor and heartache. Grayson was Lori's perfect match. Can't wait for the next book.

    A character driven poignant love story

    In San Diego, wild land firefighter Griffin Moore still feels guilt and remorse over watching twelve people including his best friend die in an inferno in which he blames himself for not getting everyone out; he has not worked a fire since. His brother informs Griffin that he has found him work in Mexico to keep a runaway fire from destroying a small poor village......................... Pilot Lyndie Anderson flies Griffin to Mexico, but is shocked that he does not want to be at the fire. When she asks him why he volunteered, he explains that he did not. As they walk the perimeter, he realizes that the fire must be stopped before it goes uphill or it will hit the village. As they fight the fire, Griffin and Lyndie are attracted to one another, but he says he is in it for the long haul while she insists no long term relationships for her. He counters by saying he may be mentally screwed up, but he will teach her to risk her heart........................ The first two fire fights are very exciting leading to readers feeling the heat and smoke and worrying about the safety of the caring people fighting the blaze as well as the villagers. Though the fire was contained and this may be ignorance on my part, it seems strange that the hero left for home when he did because he left behind amateurs to insure no sparks rekindled. Still this is a terrific heated romance in which the temperatures are generated by something besides the magnetism between the lead duo................................. Harriet Klausner

    Interesting read

    This was an interesting read for me. I enjoyed the information about the firefighting. The author really did the research and explained it in a way that completely made sense. I really liked Griffin the firefighter...the heroine, Lyndie, I wanted to smack up side the head. However, it worked out and I enjoyed it.

    What a fun story!

    What a fun story. Hunky Firefighter fighting inner demons after the tragic loss of life at a fire. Our heroine is a scrappy bristly green eyed pilot who has some issues of her own. Great story, lots of excitement, complete with a kitten named Lucifer.

    I love Firefighters

    I really liked this story. Both Griffin and Lyndie had their own demons, but they came to gether with a common goal and surprised themselves and each other. They learned how to love. I liked Lyndie's toughness and how she learned how to let someone else in.
    So did he.

    Just ok

    ## I'm a huge Jill Shalvis fan, however I have mixed feelings about this book. The writing style was terrific as always and I did like the firefighter angle. Also, I love, love that Jill didn't write the hero as a man-slut like almost any book you read now days. The biggest problem for me was that I didn't feel any chemistry AT ALL between the hero and heroine. And that's a must for me. SPOILER ALERT: Also, the heroine was fighting to stay detached over and over and then finally the hero talks her in to taking a chance and then the next morning he says: nevermind, I can't. I thought I could but I can't. Then, BAM the next day he changes his mind and is in love ? SERIOUSLY? And all is forgiven. So, I enjoyed some of this book but not all of it (ergo 3 stars).
