As the new owner of the Main Street Diner, chef Gabriella Marcos has taken a huge risk. After being duped by her fiancé and her boss, she invested her entire savings into a place she's never seen, in a town called Marietta she's never been to and brought her reluctant teenage daughter along for the adventure. Gabriella is also determined to prove to her overprotective family that she doesn't need a man to make her life complete. Too bad her sexy new neighbor is impossible to ignore.

Since arriving in Marietta last summer, fireman Kyle Cavasos has enjoyed the anonymity that small town life provides. It's a far cry from the opulence of Bel Air where he grew up. Here, he can be a Navy vet and a first responder, not the love child who caused a flurry of gossip and tabloid headlines decades ago. Kyle has no intention of getting involved with anyone in Marietta until Gabriella moves in and life gets interesting. Fast.

Despite agreeing to pose for the Marietta Men For All Seasons calendar in order to raise money for Harry's House, Kyle hopes to stay out of the social media chaos, while he gets to know the new girl in town better. But when the calendar goes viral, will it all come crashing down for the both of them?

Burning With Desire is a fantastic contemporary romance by Patricia W. Fischer. Ms. Fischer has delivered a book that is well-written and loaded with amazing characters. Gabriella and her adopted daughter move to Marietta where Gabriella has bought a diner. Kyle is a firefighter and is their neighbor. Gabriella and Kyle's story is loaded with drama, humor, smokin' hot sexy bits and a bit of suspense. I enjoyed reading Burning With Desire and look forward to reading more from Patricia W. Fischer in the future. Burning With Desire is book 5 of the Men of Marietta Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I do enjoy the stories of Marietta, and love the men. This one was probably my least favorite. We have Gabriella the new owner of the diner in Marietta, along she and her teenage daughter, Trinity, who move in next to Kyle, one of the first responders who is also taking part of the calendar to help raise money for Harry's house. Kyle is private and is also hiding some secrets, wanting to live a normal life. He and Gabriells have chemistry, but will the calendar bring things to light? How will this affect them? I am sad to read ending of series, truly enjoyed the town and the people. I think my favorite was the Pilot one...Don't miss out.

For anyone who doesn’t know the background to this series, the key characters for this new series are the hunky first responders – cowboys, firefighters, medics, lawmen, pilots, etc – who are to pose for a calendar to raise money to help fund the development of Harry’s house, a community driven project to honour Harry who was tragically killed whilst trying to help an elderly couple. The project is to develop a safe place for children to go before and after school, a place where they can have support, activities and so much more whenever they need it. In this, the fifth story in the series, a single Mum with her teenage daughter move in to take over the Main Street Diner in Marietta. They’re wary, unsure, but ready for a fresh start. The Mum is Gabriella Marcos, a talented chef who is determined to make a success of her new business and to give her daughter, Trinity, the chance to make a fresh start away from the peers who bullied her at her previous school. They’re independent and want to prove it to the extended but close family they have left behind and Gabriella is definitely not looking for a man to save and protect her! Kyle Cavasos moved to Marietta about a year ago and loves life in the close community. He’s a Navy vet and fireman, with no hints of his parents and past. He’s loving the chance to be just one of the first responders, no press, no cameras, no paparazzi. He’s not looking for a relationship or woman in his life. He’s posed for the calendar to raise money for Harry’s House but really hopes he’ll not be identified so he can keep his secrets . . . Kyle and Gabriella are instantly aware of each other and their attraction grows, reluctantly but surely through the story. There are secrets that could destroy their potential relationship and plenty of angst and turmoil. Some of the connections between them which are revealed (not giving any more details, don’t want to give any spoilers) seem beyond belief or clichéd but it is fiction, after all, so just go with the flow. The importance of a supportive community, people working together, is demonstrated throughout the story, especially as Kyle uses his connections to help Trinity settle in. I’ve enjoyed all the books in the series and highly recommend checking out the earlier novels, too. I’m impressed again by how well this publisher manages to get a group of authors to each write their own story to contribute to a series involving events, locations and people from each other’s books. I hope there will be more series in future which will let readers know how Harry’s House develops and supports young people in this community as well as updating us on what some of the characters we’ve read about are getting on! I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.

This was a wonderful conclusion to the Men of Marietta series. I really liked this story. Gabriella is the new owner of the diner in Marietta, and she and her teenage daughter, Trinity, move in next door to Kyle, a first responder who is part of the calendar fundraiser. Kyle is hiding secrets about his past and his family. He's just trying to stay as low profile as possible and have a normal life. But the publicity of the calendar may cause that to blow up in his face. Gabriella and Kyle have chemistry and a spark right from the beginning. I loved how these two were with each other, and with Trinity. I didn't want this series to end. I enjoyed it so much.

Burning with Desire by Patricia W. Fischer, the fifth book in the Men of Marietta series is the perfect title for this wonderful book. This is a story of two people needing to change up their lives and moved to Marietta for that new beginning. Ending up living next door to each other is only an extra perk of their relocation. I liked the way in which the struggle Kyle had with not letting people into his world was portrayed. Kyle was mortified by the antics of his biological father and did not want the kind people of Marietta to know of their connection. Gabriella had so much to deal with considering her horrible boss who stole her recipes and threatened the livelihood and jobs of her family. Buying the Dinner from Paige was the first step in an improved life for her and her adopted daughter, Trinity. I loved how the town of Marietta took Gabriella and Trinity under their wings and made their adjustment to small town living easier. I really want to live and work in a town like Marietta. If only it was a real place. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in only one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

The last installment of the Men of Marietta, has Kyle, firefighter/paramedic as Mr October. Gabriella is new to Marietta, moving from Texas in the winter as the new owner of the Diner. Kyle and Gabriella our neighbors and there is a spark between the two immediately. Gabriella is looking for a new start with her teenage daughter and not looking for love. Kyle has a big secret that needs to share with Gabriella but has not found the perfect time to share, will it be to late once the calendar goes viral. Loved these characters. Gabriella is a very strong independent lady. How can you not love Kyle, a sexy firefighter/paramedic. Excited for the new diner in Marietta, hopefully will see it again. I'm so sad to see this series end. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the series.

Kyle Cavasos is a first responder in Marietta. He came here to keep a low profile. He doesn't want to be involved in his family drama. Here he can keep to himself, until he meets Gabriella Marcos. She's new in town and his neighbor. She just bought the Main Street Diner. Their connection is immediate and powerful. They make a great couple with their attraction and their sassy dialogue. Kyle is a great hero. He's kind, considerate and caring. He likes Gabriella's daughter, Trinity, and wants to help her fit in. He knows how hard that is. If only he could put the past and his family scandal behind him, but it hurts too much. Gabriella came here to protect her family from a vengeful boss who made her life hell. I admire her strength. She willing sacrificed for them. Patricia W. Fischer wrote a sweet and sexy romantic tale of love and family. I wanted them to be happy, but they needed to open up about their life and trust each other. As always this small Montana town draws me in. I'm loving the Calendar Men of Marietta series. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read. My comments are my honest opinion.

Kyle Cavasos is happy in Marietta with no one knowing his true identity. With a deadline looming to take over a family business Kyle puts all his extra time into the town project Harry's House. Gabriella Marcos took her daughter and left her home in Texas to save her families jobs after being threatened by there boss. When next door neighbor Kyle offers to take the new ladies in town to dinner and a tour of the town sparks fly between them. I loved this book. It was a great end to the series. The main characters were interesting and I found myself wanting them to get there happily ever after.
