Emma Jordan has returned home after her father’s death to run the animal sanctuary that had been his legacy. But strange things start happening, and it seems that someone is out to shut her down, someone who doesn’t mind putting lives in jeopardy to see it through. When Hidden Falls’ sexiest fireman starts to ask questions, Emma needs to make sure his charm doesn’t distract her from keeping her dreams alive.
Ben McQuaid has an obligation as a local fireman to protect the community, even from a well-meaning wildlife veterinarian who’s in way over her head. But, it’s becoming hard to keep his loyalty to the town and his desire for the pretty vet separate. As Ben and Emma become caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, their feelings for each other are growing.
Will they let duty drive them apart or will they dare to fall?
This was a very entertaining read. It has a great slow build romance between Emma and Ben with a bit of mystery and suspense thrown in. The setting of the animal sanctuary was very intriguing as well. Emma and Ben were both great characters. Emma took a while to grow on me but I loved Ben right away. This is a great small town romance and definitely a book I would recommend.

What happens when you put together a hot but sensitive fireman, a stubborn independent woman and a sanctuary for wild animals? A really good love story with lots of heat and animal attraction ;)! I instantly fell in love with Ben and his loving ways. He has never been in a casual relationship, but has had bad with the women in his life. Emma is the opposite of what he thinks he is looking for, but when it comes to matters of the heart, those reasons don't matter. Emma's also had bad luck in the relationship department due to the dangers of and commitment to her job, so she doesn't think she can have one. Luckily, Ben's job is just as risky as hers and can pull him in at any time. The added mystery and danger of someone trying to sabotage her made their story more interesting and the twist at the end was somewhat unexpected. Can't wait for the next McQuaid brother to fall!
