Ignite on Contact

Jaci Burton’s Ignite on Contact is a steamy, fun modern romance with a lot of life and spice to it. The characters have pitch-perfect, spicy banter and their romance feels real and fun. Rafe Donovan loves being a Florida-based fireman, but when an explosion leaves him in the ER he meets up with ...

The Firefighter's Thanksgiving Wish

In 2019, my romance reviews frequently ranked as either ‘hot’ or ‘burning’ on AAR’s sensuality scale. I’ve decided to shake things up in 2020 by reading more novels on the ‘closed-lip kisses’ end of the sexy spectrum. Book seven in Anna J. Stewart’s small-town romance series Butter ...

Walk Me Home

Well-written and touching,  Walk Me Home is a good character study, a worthwhile comedy and a moving romance, all about the importance of forgiveness and healing.

My Forever Plus-One

My Forever Plus-One has the right mix of modern, charming romance and journalistic flair – at first.  Then the last quarter of the book falls on its face as childish jealously is injected between the hero and heroine. Evelyn Rhodes – director on a Jerry Springer/Maury Povich-style talk show ...

Up in Flames

Up in Flames uses the classic trope of a hunky fireman falling for his sister's best friend, with a charity auction and a puppy thrown into the mix to keep things interesting. It's the second in the Flirting with Fire series and is easy to jump into, though unfortunately I didn't fall for the charac ...

Consumed

I know a ton of people who love romances featuring sexy firefighters, but I’ve never considered myself to be one of them. However, when I learned that J.R. Ward, the creator of the fabulous Black Dagger Brotherhood novels, had written the first book in a new series about a group of firefighters, I ...

Silver Belles: An Over-40 Holiday Anthology

Romance is glutted with the innocent ingénues, so in Silver Belles, it was refreshing to read about people with more years under their belts. Many of the protagonists in these stories have children but are now empty nesters, and so are at the perfect moment in their lives for a happy-for-now joyful ...
