"Fox knows how to strike just enough sway between sweet and bitter, homespun and steamy." --Publishers Weekly
No one is a stranger in Caribou Crossing, a small Western town made for healing and second chances…
She's raising her son on her own, but that's just fine with Lark Cantrell. Caribou Crossing's fire chief comes from a long line of strong, independent women--who have lousy luck with men. Lark's ex-husband walked out when Jayden was born with cerebral palsy. No matter--Jayden, now ten, is a bright, terrific kid, and the love of her life. When it comes to men, Lark is content with the occasional casual hookup; there's no room in her heart for more disappointment.
Major Eric Weaver is in Caribou Crossing for one reason: to complete his rehabilitation so he can return to active service. Haunted by what went down in Afghanistan, his wounded soul isn't healing as quickly as his body. But it's almost impossible to resist the appeal of the sexy, feisty fire chief and her plucky son--not to mention the friendly, caring small town way of life. In Lark's loving arms, the scarred soldier begins to believe he may finally have found his true home…

Ring of Fire by Susan Fox
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the books.
This one is about Lark Cantrell and she's the fire chief at Caribou Crossings. Her mother and 10 year old son are used to her leaving in the middle of the night to guide the other firefighters and help put fires out.
I do enjoy firefighter stories as I learn so much from them, interesting topic and I'm not sure why.
Within the first 50 pages I've already learned a few new things: what horn on saddle is for, how CP patients and those with articial legs can do things...
Major Eric Weaver is doing rehab there in British Columbia, on leave from the army when Lark pulls him out of the burning house he was renting. Her son Jayden who has CP and he are paired with horses, it's therapy and I love hearing all about it.
Lark has sworn off men since her husband had walked out after learning their baby had CP but she starts to get hot and bothered about Eric.
She likes how Jayden has another male he can talk to-things she can't relate to...They become lovers over time and then some unexpected things occur that might help or not..
hot steamy sex scenes. Excerpt from a Holiday in Your Heart is also included at the end. Would enjoy reading more of this town in BC.
I received this book from The Kensington Books in exchange for my honest review
