A Wounded Hero
As a firefighter, Jaxson Anderson is well acquainted with danger. He’s charged into burning buildings to rescue men and women, young and old. He’s scaled ladders that towered over blistering infernos, and defied blazes that terrified lesser men.
Fire? He understands. Women? Not so much. Now there’s some real danger. He should know. He’s been burned before.
He’s not interested in romance, or the perils that come with it. His priority is caring for his two small boys, and making his mark as the new fire chief of Sawyer, but everything changes the day he catches sight of Sugar, the pretty girl who works at the local bakery. Sugar is exactly what he wants: A fun, no-strings distraction. A friends-with-benefits arrangement that won’t break what’s left of his heart.
A Battered Heart
On the heels of an abusive marriage, Sugar Stonemyer is done with men. But when Jaxson Anderson strolls into the bakery with a very wicked offer, she can’t resist. One look at the fireman, and Sugar knows the Sawyer rumor mills haven’t exaggerated. Jaxson’s tall, dark, and smokin’ hot. He wants an arrangement, nothing more, and that’s perfect.
Or so she thought.
With each slow seduction, Sugar falls a little more. She has only herself to blame. She didn’t want either of them to have feelings, but that’s not how the game is played…
Flames of Love is the first novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!
Flames of Love
A good story with Sugar, a small town girl with a difficult past, and Jaxson, the fire chief. Each has a history they’re trying to overcome, and find that together, they can. Lots of amusing snippets of life in the fishbowl of a small town. Ms Wright has well-developed characters that catch you at the beginning, and keep you cheering for them to the HEA we all crave. Enjoy this one.
Flames of Love
Ok story and characters. Not what I usually read! Cute enough but no “meat” in this book. Sorry!
A free book that you shouldn’t miss
Ms. Wright had me the first sentence to the last one and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. This is the story of Sugar and Jaxson, who meet at the donut shop where Sugar works in the small town that Jaxson has just moved to as the new fire chief. They are intrigued with each other from the first, but Jaxson is coming off a bad divorce and trying to regain custody of his sons and Sugar is coming off a bad, abusive marriage and divorce.
Jaxson learns that small towns can be both a blessing and a curse. Sugar learns that everything that she believes bad about herself isn’t all true.
Add in a vengeful firefighter, a goofy Great Dane, two rambunctious boys and an all-seeing small town and you have the makings for a very enjoyable read.
