Deadly Heat

I’ll definitely be filing Deadly Heat under “guilty pleasure." It features a cock-sure hero, steamy sex scenes galore, and a hero and heroine who can barely sit in a room together for five seconds without tearing each other’s clothes off. I’m not sure any of it was believable, but it was cer ...

Silent Scream

When I pick up a book by Karen Rose, I know I'm in for one heck of a thrill ride. The plotting is almost always right on target, she writes good characters, and, while her villains may tend toward the supersmart serial killers, they don't cross the line into campy eeeeevil. With Silent Scream, she d ...

Line of Fire

Line of Fire is Jo Davis’s fourth book in her series about the men and women of Fire Station Five. It not only gives us the story of Tommy Skylar, the glamour boy of the outfit, but sets up the story for Sean Tanner, whose story will be told in the next book in the series.  Tommy Skylar is tal ...

Wild Heat

You don’t have to look much farther than a calendar shop to realize that women think firefighters are sexy. Bella Andre fully understands the attraction to firefighters in Wild Heat and creates a truly delicious hero, but missteps in a few other areas. Arson investigator Maya Jackson has been s ...

Flashpoint

Flashpoint is the first book in a connected miniseries about firefighters in a Southern California town. It’s a fun, sexy read with enjoyable characters and an interesting mystery subplot. It’s my first book by this author, but I’ll definitely be checking out her backlist. Zach Thomas was o ...

Trial by Fire

There are plenty of books with fireman heroes out there, but for some reason (because I don't really have a fireman fantasy?) I haven't read many of them. I found Trial by Fire to be a bit of a mixed bag. There were some suspenseful parts that I really enjoyed, and some that just didn't work as well ...

Trial By Fire

I have a weakness for books featuring firefighter heroes, so when I saw Trial By Fire on the shelf at Wal-Mart, I thought I’d give it a try. This is the beginning of a series about the firefighters of station five in a small town in Tennessee. It’s a fast moving tale but I can’t say it’s a w ...

The Big Burn

When the Bombshell line debuted, there seemed to be some surprise, and subsequently, dissatisfaction that the books weren't romance novels, which was understandable considering they're published by Silhouette. While some Bombshell titles have delivered on the romance front, this is primarily a line ...

Where There's Smoke

In a genre often accused of being too focused on small-town sheriffs, secret babies, and cowboys, the first novel in Kristin Hardy's Holiday Hearts series is a breath of fresh air. Her protagonists - a captain in the Boston Fire Department and an engineer - are mature, intelligent, and quite likable ...

Leaving Normal

Although I am sure there are a good number of romances featuring firefighters, this is a rather new scenario for me. Therefore, as I became increasingly impressed with the originality of this hero’s character, I recognized that this was due, in part, to his chosen profession. However, it was the a ...
