The fire within . . .
A parachute jump gone horribly wrong nearly put an end to Hunter Buchanan’s smokejumper career. But with his body on the mend, the rugged firefighter is ready to get back to Oregon’s Redmond Air Center and his training. Except, while he’s conquered his physical injuries, he hasn’t been able to do the same for his panic attacks. Enter Charlotte Jones, aka Charlie, the trainer who tames his tension like nobody’s business. It doesn’t hurt that she’s easy on the eyes. Or that she stirs a hunger in him to deal with just about anything in order to be the man she needs . . .
After four years of hiding from a violent man in her past, Charlie is ready to face the world again. She knows this has more than a little to do with the potent mix of strength and vulnerability she’s found in Hunter’s arms. But when a dangerous encounter convinces her the worst isn’t behind her, she’ll have to decide if she’s strong enough to accept Hunter’s help—and his love . . .
“Excellent for readers who enjoy plot-driven mysteries with well-developed, sympathetic characters and slow-burn romance.”

She’s been hiding from a violent man in her past, but a dangerous encounters convinces Charlie that the worst isn’t behind her and she’ll have to decide if she’s strong enough to accept Hunter’s Help – and his love.
Both characters in this Smokejumper story are strong, captivating characters who are both vulnerable for different reasons and easily draw readers to them and ensuring that readers want to know their stories. The chemistry between Hunter and Charlie sizzles with lots chemistry, but this relationship is sweet but more a slow burn romance that builds the heat to inferno proportions with lots of gripping emotions that grip the heart.
The plots is steady paced and keeps readers glued to the pages with suspense and excitement as Charlie gets targeted with a series of attacks that convince her that her past has come back to haunt her. But this story has some unexpected twists that keeps the readers guessing and some additional adrenaline pumping thrills as Hunter finds various was to help him with his problem. Readers can’t tear themselves away from the pages of this heartfelt, heartwarming and suspenseful romance.
