Publisher Description

Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

“Love is a responsibility. Love is a promise. Love is a life sentence.” – Grandpa Doug

Hotshot Evan Bishop was taught at a very early age that love was something to be taken seriously. The thirty-four-year-old alpha firefighter had only loved one woman his entire life, his childhood sweetheart who just told him she was engaged to another man. So when he locks eyes with a blue-eyed, blonde bombshell who has him falling fast at first sight, his instinct is to deny it, ignore it, and resist it.  

Actress Shayne Fox was taught at a very early age that love was a luxury that she couldn’t afford. From growing up in foster care to working in Hollywood, the beautiful ingénue's only concern was survival not love. So when she locks eyes with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger who has her wanting something that she never allowed herself to feel, her instinct is to dismiss it, suppress, and avoid it.

He was used to being in control of all things at all times but would he be able to control his heart? She was used to life giving her lemons but would she recognize it when it gave her love?

Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one that is the hardest to take.

The title says it all - Fire & Temptation

Welcome to Hope Falls, the place where people come for a visit and in the end find their true love and soul mate.
Evan is a baseball player turned Hotshot firefighter and Shayne is an actress in the Hollywood spotlight. They both have struggled in their lives and are afraid of disappointment. Once they see each other or feel each other across the room the attraction starts to simmer. Once they touch, it's like an electrical charge that sparks and continues to burn. Neither one was looking for the other but once they found each other they both understood that they could not stay away and feelings that they both thought had been buried came alive.
If you've read any of the Hope Falls books before some of your favorites will pop up and if you have never read any of them, don't worry. This is a standalone and will give you plenty of pleasure!

Awesome visit to Hope Falls!

Emotionally thrilling, sexy, fun, action packed romantic adventure that has you believing in love at first sight. They may not have the same views on love in the beginning but that does not stop them from falling anyway.

Evan Bishop believed in love and thought he had it all with his childhood sweetheart until she tells him she is engaged to someone else. Shayne Fox is a smoking hot actress that was taught at a young age that love was not for her. Then she lands in Hope Falls for her latest movie roll and locks eyes with a hunk of a firefighter that makes her swoon. Loved the white hot sparks and chemistry these two have. Highly entertaining reading.

A must read!!!

I wasn’t sure what to think of this book after I started it, because at around 25%, there was little to no dialogue between the hero and heroine. But I ended up absolutely loving it.

Evan and Shayne were perfect for each other. They were both a bit guarded, and it worked perfect for them. I loved the little things Evan did for Shayne, and how much the secondary characters played a role in this story. A fantastic read, that has me wanting more of this series!!!
