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 . . .

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

White Heat 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 65 reviews.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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. 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 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.
