The number-one New York Times-bestselling author delves into the world of elite firefighters who thrive on danger and adrenaline--men and women who wouldn't know how to live life if it wasn't on the edge. There's little as thrilling as firefighting--at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are in Rowan's blood: her father is a legend. She's been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home--even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering. Fortunately, this year's rookie crop is one of the strongest ever--and Gulliver Curry's one of the best. He's also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids' arcade. Everything is thrown off balance when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year's tragedy. Rowan knows she can't complicate things with Gull--any distractions in the air or on the ground could mean the end--but if she doesn't find someone she can lean on, she may not make it through the summer. . . .

Nach langer Zeit hab ich endlich mal wieder einen Roman aus Nora Roberts Feder gelesen und ich wurde wiedermal nicht enttäuscht! Ganz im Gegenteil, ich bin sowas von begeistert ! ! ! Gekonnt hat die Autorin Abenteuer, Romantik und Dramatik in einem verbinden können und mich so durch das ganze Buch...
So good. Non-stop from start to finish, it was torture being forced to read this slowly over my entire vacation. I hated to put it down and ended up getting sunburnt when I lost myself in the "just one more chapter" game.My eyes may have glazed over once or twice during the paragraphs about chopping...
Not one of Nora's best. It was okay. Kept me interested enough to finish it but I probably won't read it again. I was able to guess the killer well before the denouement. And the romance was sort of boring. No conflict. The heroine seemed rather wimpy to me, despite her bravery as a firefighte...
It's odd to hear fire talked about as a person with thoughts, feelings and plans.I wasn't surprised by who the bad guy was, but at the same time I hadn't really expected who it was. I kind of liked Rowan's rule (no sleeping with someone she works with) but I can't really see her following that rul...
