It takes a special kind of hero to be a smoke jumper. To take the greatest risks. To live or die in the raging heat of the moment. And it takes a special kind of woman to love him. . .
Where There's Smoke. . .
For Jack Donovan, smoke jumping is a way of life. He lives for the adrenaline rush--the thrill of flying over the burning California hills, the intensity of diving straight into the inferno, the glory of taming the forces of nature. Love is a distant ember compared to the feeling he gets fighting fires--until an emergency call from his hometown brings him face to face with the one woman he can't forget. . .
Lily never got over the handsome rogue who once kissed her senseless--and then left. She vowed she was done with love-'em-and-leave-'em men and small town life. Until a series of malicious fires set by a stalker has her running home to hide. Now, their summer is heating up as Jack fights to save her from the stalker's fiery threats and to convince her to give the passion between them a second chance.

Paranormal romance author Marsh (His Dark Bond) explores the alpha-male-rich world of smoke jumpers in her pulse-pounding first contemporary romantic thriller. Firefighter and smoke-jumper Jack Donovan returns to Strong, the tiny eastern California hamlet where he spent his teenage years, at the request of his adoptive mother: suspicious fires are occurring, and the town doesn t have the resources to deal with them. Lily Cortez, Jack s onetime love interest, has also returned to Strong, leaving a high-powered advertising job in San Francisco after being stalked by a firebug. Lily buys a local lavender farm and tries to start her life over. When her stalker finds her, Jack and his adoptive brothers immediately move to protect Lily, and Lily and Jack quickly reconnect. Marsh leads readers through a hair-raising series of events on her way to the shocking but appropriate ending.
