Sookie Logan is interested in one thing and Chase Kingston is not it. A fiercely independent helicopter pilot for the National Guard, Sookie is back in her hometown to fly her copter and help fight a fire, not to hook up with some junior firefighter from Alaska. Especially when this particular firefighter works for her brother, the one person in the world who's let her down the most. The hunk in yellow & tan is off limits.
But when a date intended to just make her brother's blood boil turns into much more, Sookie and Chase give in to their raging attraction. Both agree it's a quick fling—something that will last only as long as it takes to knock down the flames threatening her town. Leaving Chase behind will be as easy as leaving her hometown was the first time. No attachments. No regrets.
Rugged loner Landon Brenner has a problem and she's beautiful, intelligent, and he's falling for her—fast. Injured while fighting the fire threatening the small town of Cedar Springs, and haunted by past failures that drive him to get back to the action despite his injuries, Landon reluctantly agrees to take a room in the house of the sexy nurse who treated him while he was in the hospital. Their attraction is combustible, and the more time they spend together, the more Landon finds himself yearning for more than just a temporary fling.
It's hard not to fall for a guy who likes to go around saving everything in his path—from small animals to people—but Alexandra Appleby is determined to resist Landon's many charms. He's too much like her late husband Henry, a cop who died in the line of duty. She doesn't need another hero in her life. A man around who rushes into danger without thinking twice. And she sure as heck doesn't want to fall in love with a man whose bravery could kill him—and leave her heartbroken. She's got her job and she's perfectly content to spend the rest of her days alone. But Alex can't help thinking that maybe, just maybe, Landon is worth putting her heart on the line.
He's back. Hank Logan, the man who broke Lana Sweet's heart, the man she never forgot, is back in their little town and making her fall in love with him all over again. After her brother Michael's death ten years ago, Hank disappeared, leaving behind the devastated girl who'd loved him since the first grade. Lana is one tough nut to crack, except when it comes to Hank. With him, she's just a big pushover. One smile, one kiss, and she's back where she started. Except now she's pregnant and wondering if she can count on a man who walked away—who could walk away again—leaving her to deal with the consequences. Just like before.
Hank never meant to come back to his hometown, but when he heard about the wildfire threatening Cedar Springs, he had to return. Who's he kidding? Sure, there was a fire, but the bigger draw was Lana. In the ten years since Michael's death, Hank hasn't been back, but he never could get Lana out of his thoughts, never could move on when she was the only girl he'd ever loved. Blaming himself for Michael's death, Hank can't bring himself to tell Lana the truth of what happened that night. Not when telling her would mean he might never get her back.
