"Terrific heated romance"
In San Diego, wild land firefighter Griffin Moore still
feels guilt and remorse over watching twelve people
including his best friend die in an inferno in which he
blames himself for not getting everyone out; he has not
worked a fire since. His brother informs Griffin that he
has found him work in Mexico to keep a runaway fire from
destroying a small poor village.
Pilot Lyndie Anderson flies Griffin to Mexico, but is
shocked that he does not want to be at the fire. When she
asks him why he volunteered, he explains that he did not.
As they walk the perimeter, he realizes that the fire must
be stopped before it goes uphill or it will hit the
village. As they fight the fire, Griffin and Lyndie are
attracted to one another, but he says he is in it for the
long haul while she insists no long term relationships for
her. He counters by saying he may be mentally screwed up,
but he will teach her to risk her heart.
The first two fire fights are very exciting leading to
readers feeling the heat and smoke and worrying about the
safety of the caring people fighting the blaze as well as
the villagers. Though the fire was contained and this may
be ignorance on my part, it seems strange that the hero
left for home when he did because he left behind amateurs
to insure no sparks rekindled. Still this is a terrific
heated romance in which the temperatures are generated by
something besides the magnetism between the lead duo.
