I am loving these firefighters! This is book 3 in The Firefighters of Montana series and it features Ace Clark and Lina McArthur. This book was written a little different than the first two in this series. Ace's firefighting job is not the base of this story line. It played quietly in the background while his past crept into his present. Lina is a great character. She was strong and she knew the only way to find herself was to move away from her overpowering family. This story was about facing the past and moving on.
I'm looking forward to reading book four.
This was an emotional story. Ace is running from his past, his childhood, and his sister Jess. All because he felt like he was holding her back and was the black cloud to their lives. Lina is a doctor who is also kind of running from her family, at least her family name. She wanted to branch out and stand on her own, and she happens to be friends with Jess.
A chance meeting in the ER sets the wheel spinning on an emotional rollercoster as Lina begins to break out of her shell and Ace starts to learn that he may not have to keep running.
This was a great story and I highly recommend it.
Smokejumper Ace Clark and Dr. Lina McArthur both have ties to Marietta Montana. Ace ran from Montana as a teenager thinking he was protecting his sister. When Ace is injured at work he lands himself in the er and face to face with Lina. Lina tracks Ace down thinking she can flirt with him to learn his true identity. Can the two move forward or will there pasts destroy them?
I really liked this book! Ace and Lina challenge one another and just seem to fit together.
