Gorgeous and Grumpy Single Father Meets Feisty Female Firefighter!
Dad in distress. Smokejumper to the rescue!
Widower Marcus Ricci has always been a hero: the fair boss, the good son, the responsible brother, the model dad. Now he's gone from good-natured to grouchy in one short birthday -- not his; his daughter Linnie's. She's hit thirteen, and he's hit a brick wall trying to communicate with her. He just can't make her understand the dangers of joining him on his construction sites.
To make matters worse, he has another female determined to interfere in his construction business. Injured Smokejumper-turned-Arson-Investigator Zoe Montgomery's investigation into a dangerous firebug has led her straight to his construction business. Her meddling is driving him crazy... or could that be the sparks flying between them?
Zoe Montgomery has always been a woman of goals and action. She's never considered starting a family, but when she meets Marcus' rebellious daughter she starts wondering what she's missing. It's too bad the teen comes with such a grumpy and growly (but gorgeous) dad.
Zoe is determined to catch the firebug, help the frustrated teen, and definitely control the flames blazing between Marcus and herself. Then she realizes his bark is worse than his bite and his kisses... to-die-for.
Now she's wondering if she wants their twosome to become a threesome, and he's wondering if she might be his second chance for happiness. Is the sexual tension between them turning into love?
Third in the Hero's Hearts series, Joining Hearts combines compelling characters, strong family relationships, and realistic conflicts to create a beautiful balance of heat, heartache, and happiness.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Joining Hearts is a type of romance read that is rarely seen in the genre. A thrill seeker heroine with a take charge attitude falling for a mysterious father with a teenage daughter. Marcus and Zoe fit well together for me. She was a high strung individual and Marcus helped to even out the flaws in her personality. Zoe brought out Marcus' hidden adventurer and even helped him to open up more and heal from the pain of loss. What started out as suspicion ended up growing into a relationship that worked for these two individuals and made them better. Iona Findley is on point with her Hero's Heart Series.
