Loved the story and well written.... This is part of a series about smoke jumpers responsible for protecting Glacier National Park in Montana... Now reading the fourth book, all by different, authors and I can honestly say I enjoyed them all... I would recommend reading them in order because while the authors are all different the characters do reappear in each book ... Learned a lot about this very dangerous job and the men who seek out this way of life... Hot fires and hot romance as well... Well done to the authors and Thank God for men who choose this life to protect our natural resources... This is Book 3 in the series and if I have a favorite this would probably be the one.

4.5 Stars I am loving these firefighters! This is book 3 in The Firefighters of Montana series and it features Ace Clark and Lina McArthur. This book was written a little different than the first two in this series. Ace's firefighting job is not the base of this story line. It played quietly in the background while his past crept into his present. Lina is a great character. She was strong and she knew the only way to find herself was to move away from her overpowering family. This story was about facing the past and moving on. I'm looking forward to reading book four.

Ebook from net galley and publishers with thanks. Opinions entirely my own.

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Ignite is the third book in the Firefighters of Montana series, written by Nicole Helm. Happy to be starting at a new hospital, Dr. Lina McArthur finds herself with a stubborn patient. Injured smokejumper Firefighter Ace Clark has been stitched up, has a concussion and is fast becoming impatient with the amount of medical staff at Kalispell Regional Hospital, Montana, who’d asked him questions about his injuries. After venting his anger at Lina, he panics when he realizes that he somehow knew her, having met her a long time ago whilst in foster care. Lina is equally in shock when she sees Ace’s name tag, recognizes those eyes and suspects that Ace Clark might actually be Dean Clark, whose sister, Jess, is her best friend. As they both try to dig deeper and deeper into each other’s past in order to get to the truth, they do the unthinkable ... and begin falling for each other. Ace will do anything to keep his secret, and his past, from those around him. But when you are in love, priorities change. As Ace realizes that Lina is emotionally invested in his life and she declares her love for him, he runs. After all, jumping into a wildfire is much less scary than falling in love. Nicole Helm’s wonderfully romantic story about two people who had crossed paths in their youth is one which brought tears to my eyes, both in sadness and joy. With each of the characters being so stubborn, it is intriguing, not to mention comical, to see how each of them tries to break down the wall built around the other as they tried to connect. There are many humorous parts in the book which carry dark undertones, blending painful pasts with hopes and dreams of the present. Both Lina and Ace had been running their whole lives from who they had once been and where they had come from. Although their reasons for running differed, their determination to weigh up the pros and cons of letting the past back into their present was an emotional labyrinth which I took great pleasure in exploring. I very much enjoyed Ignite and recommend it to readers who enjoy suspense, drama, action and humor in a wonderful romantic adventure.

This was an emotional story. Ace is running from his past, his childhood, and his sister Jess. All because he felt like he was holding her back and was the black cloud to their lives. Lina is a doctor who is also kind of running from her family, at least her family name. She wanted to branch out and stand on her own, and she happens to be friends with Jess. A chance meeting in the ER sets the wheel spinning on an emotional rollercoster as Lina begins to break out of her shell and Ace starts to learn that he may not have to keep running. This was a great story and I highly recommend it.

Smokejumper Ace Clark and Dr. Lina McArthur both have ties to Marietta Montana. Ace ran from Montana as a teenager thinking he was protecting his sister. When Ace is injured at work he lands himself in the er and face to face with Lina. Lina tracks Ace down thinking she can flirt with him to learn his true identity. Can the two move forward or will there pasts destroy them? I really liked this book! Ace and Lina challenge one another and just seem to fit together.

Ace Clark left his past behind ten years ago and has built a new life for himself as a smoke jumper. After an accident he meets Dr. Lina McArthur, a ghost from his past. Even though he's still hiding the truth of his previous life he finds himself falling for Lina. These are two people with issues to overcome but hopefully they can find their way to forever. A beautiful story and number three in The Firefighters of Montana series

In Ignite by Nicole Helm, Ace is a smoke jumper who unexpectedly runs into his past...a past he ran from and has stayed away from. Lina is the Dr. who treats an injured Ace, a man who seems so familiar to her. Both of them left Marietta, Montana for different reasons, but Ace is determined to stay away and not be found. Lina is sure she knows him from her past, and the attraction she feels towards him is only one of the reasons she wants to get to know him better in her present world. The attraction is on both sides, and as they spend more time together they leave the past alone, and instead focus on the here and now. Their relationship grows and the chemistry between Lina and Ace is hot, but unresolved issues on both sides are still there in the shadows...and when the past confronts them, can it be as bad as it seems? Will it bring destruction to not only their relationship but their relationships with others, or will they find the strength to face the past, and maybe have a chance at a future together? Ignite was a fast paced story about two people finding their own way in life, then finding each other. I was glad to get to know Ace better, having seen him in previous Firefighters of Montana books. His youthful ideology and ideas of right and wrong drove him away, but even as an adult they've kept him away. He made me feel different things as I got to know him. Frustration because of how he continued to hide, sadness for what he had come from and went through, and hope that he'd open his eyes and see the future clearly. I'm undecided how I felt about him because he has held onto the past tightly and it's impacted his entire way of being. I could understand Lina a lot better. She left Marietta to make it on her own, away from a powerful family with a lot of influence. It would take a lot of courage to do this, to stand up to her father in particular, but she does it with no regrets. She's doing what she wants to do to make her happy. Lina and Ace seemed to spend a lot of time in their own little world, and I was intrigued to see what would happen when the outside world finally broke in. I liked the secondary characters we did see in Ignite. In particular Ace's sister who I could really feel for. I liked the characters, but didn't develop a strong connection with them, and this made it more difficult to feel invested in their future. The plot is good, I just had a hard time with Ace for a lot of the book. I'd recommend Ignite to romance readers. I received a free copy for an honest review.

A fun addition to the series! Dr. Lina MacArthur spent her life trying to impress her father and live up to the MacArthur name in Marietta. When she decides that it is time to live her life for herself, she finds a position in Kalispell and starts to find things that make her happy. The last thing she expected was to find her best friend and sister-in-law's long lost brother. Ace Clark left Marietta as a teen, hoping to give his sister a chance at a better life. He has finally found his place and started to settle down with his job as a Smokejumper out of Glacier Creek. When a trip to the ER brings him face-to-face with Lina, he knows that he should stay away, but he finds himself intrigued. Lina and Ace can't resist the chance to get to know each other, ignoring the obvious. When it is time to face the music, will they be strong enough to fight for the life they have made. I really enjoyed this story and the development of these two characters and how their story fit with the others in the series. This book can be read as a stand alone, but the stories are all so fun, I recommend reading them all. *I received an advanced reader's copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Ace Clark and Lina McArthur are trying to escape their pasts. Ace has successfully reinvented himself after his troubled youth and has left his past behind. Lina moved to Kalispell to get out of the shadows of the McArthur name. When Ace recognizes Lina's last name at the hospital, he knows that he should stay away from her because she is definitely linked to the past that he has avoided for 10 years. Despite their best efforts to deny the chemistry between them, passion ignites. Lina and Ace were great together. They are my favorite couple of this series. I absolutely loved Lina's perfect day! I love the Firefighters of Montana series! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*

Ignite by Nicole Helm....Oh my goodness, I loved this book so much not only are there hot firefighters, but it takes place in my hometown of Kalispell. Nicole Helm has created great characters with skeletons in the closest, which makes for a good read. Lina trying to pull out of daddy's coattails and Ace changing everything from is past, you will have to read to find out what happens. I was given a complimentary book by publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Dean “Ace” Clark is a smokejumper in Kalispell. He ends up in the ER with a concussion due to an accident during one of their jumps. Upon recognizing the doctor’s name, all he wants to do is get out of there and quick! Lina McArthur is the doctor who examines Ace. One look at his last name and Lina thinks she knows him. Will this chance encounter change their lives for the good or dredge up a past that both are trying to escape? I quite enjoyed this book! I love how these stories are entwined with each other yet have a quality of their own. I can’t say it enough. If you haven’t read this series, you must add it to your list!

"Ignite" is a beautiful, sweet, and passionate story. You will be hooked from the start to finish. Both Ace and Lina have portrayed themselves differently that who and how they feel. In this story you discover the real Ace and Lina. "Ignite" by Nicole Helm Is book number three in the "Firefighters of Montana" series. This is Dr. Lina McArthur and smokejumper, Dean "Ace" Clark's story. Lina has moved to Kalispell to escape being under the shadow of her father who is also a doctor.

Another great addition to the Firefighters of Montana. loving the smoke jumpers!! Injured smoke jumper, Dean "Ace" is being treated by Dr Lina when she recognizes something familiar. Could it be her best friend's brother. Ace has tried to run from his past, but now it might have just caught up with him. They both have pasts that they need to overcome to have a future in their romance. Can they both break out of their protective shells. Loved this story, great characters and flow of the book. I highly recommend this story with the rest of the Montana Firefighters.
CArcidiacono More than 1 year ago
I liked this story and thought it was a good addition to the series. I would have liked to read a little about previous characters, to tie the series more together but otherwise a good story. Lena is working at the ER when she thinks she has stumbled across her best friends brother, who has been gone for over 10 years. Ace has tried to put that part of his life in the past. Together they will find a new way to move forward. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Smoking hot firefighters. Need I say more? When Dean "Ace" Clark ends up in Kalispell Hospital's emergency room after a jump goes wrong, he discovers the doctor to be none other than his sister's best friend Lina McArthur. He couldn’t let Lina know who he really is. He didn’t want to interfere with his sister’s life. Ten years ago, Ace left Marietta and never looked back. He wanted Jess to have a good life without his troubled past overshadowing her. He has created a whole new life for himself including a new background and he wasn’t going to let anyone know his secret. Lina was tired of living in her father’s shadow. When it was time to break free, she moved to Kalispell where she could figure out who she really was. The day Lina has a patient with her best friend’s last name, it sets her mind racing. What if this was Jess’s long lost brother? She was almost positive Ace really was Dean and she will do anything to find the truth. But one thing Lina didn't expect was how hard she would fall for the sexy smoke jumper. This is a fast paced book with a great storyline and interesting characters. It is a wonderful addition to the Firefighters of Montana series.

Lina had grown up under her father's shadow. She decided she needed to leave her hometown and get out on her own to find herself. She is a doctor and sees a patient that had the last name of her best friend. Her friend has been looking for her brother for years. Ace left his old life behind and decided it was best for his sister if she never sees him again. He recognizes the doctor's last name and assures her that he is not the guy she is looking for. He wants to be that guy, but knows it is best if he stays away. Can he be the guy that stays around with Lina and his sister? Does he need to run again? He likes his life as a smoke jumper and doesn't really want to leave.

Excellent read! Ace Clark ran as far and as fast as he could from a troubled past. Fearful that his bad reputation would risk the place in the foster home his sister Jess was so happy in wanted to get away and give her a chance at happiness. Now years later it looks like his past has caught up to him. An injury doing his job as a smoke jumper sends him to the hospital. There he is treated by the gorgeous Dr. McArthur. She's from the very family he ran from all those years ago. Falling for her could jeopardize everything he's sacrificed for all these years. Or it may very well be the best thing that ever happen to him. Definitely a recommended read.

The book was ok I think when you pay for a book it should be longer than 100 pages very disappointing
