He's a man of few words…

Troy Horvath doesn't need much outta life. His fellow firefighters, a good beer, and...well, one date with the most gorgeous woman in town couldn't hurt, right?

Penny is beautiful, sassy, and everything he doesn't need.

But she's exactly who he wants.

He knows from the get-go she isn't planning on staying in Sawyer. She just isn't a small-town girl. With those heels and her striking red lipstick, she's a firecracker, and destined for so much more.

But maybe, just maybe, he can make all of her big-city dreams come true – if only she'll give him a chance...


She may've friend-zoned him…

And now Penny's realizing that may've been a mistake. Troy is hot. Like, firefighter-calendar hot. 

She swore when she came back to Sawyer to care for her mother, it would only be temporary. So…maybe a relationship with Troy could be temporary, too? 

Except deep down, Penny knows Troy wants so much more, and there's a chance she does, too.

He's hiding something, though – something big.

Can she be the one to finally get him to open up? 

And if she does, will their relationship survive the truth?


Burned by Love is the fourth novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

She also happens to be single. So very single, in fact, that she’s forgotten what it’s like to have a man give her a single carnation, let alone a dozen roses. She’s just about given up on love for herself when Christian comes into her life. For one brief, shining moment, she thinks she might be able to have her own happily ever after. 

But nothing worth having comes easily…

Zane had made it big in the country music scene; he was on top of the world. Nothing could touch him…until a car wreck took his wife’s life and left his son crippled. Suddenly, the success he’d worked so hard to gain tastes bitter on his tongue, and all he wants to do is hide from the world and lick his wounds.

Late one night, idly browsing the internet, he finds Dr. Whitaker’s horse therapy camp, and makes the split-second decision that if he’s going to hide out somewhere, hell, it might as well be the wilds of Idaho. Packing up his son and leaving everything else behind, he moves to Sawyer, wanting nothing more than the peace and quiet that comes with anonymity.

Then Nurse Louise comes strolling into his life, there to help his son recuperate. Zane quickly realizes, though, that his son isn’t the only one who needs her healing touch…

A Wounded Hero

As a firefighter, Jaxson Anderson is well acquainted with danger. He’s charged into burning buildings to rescue men and women, young and old. He’s scaled ladders that towered over blistering infernos, and defied blazes that terrified lesser men.

Fire? He understands. Women? Not so much. Now there’s some real danger. He should know. He’s been burned before. 

He’s not interested in romance, or the perils that come with it. His priority is caring for his two small boys, and making his mark as the new fire chief of Sawyer, but everything changes the day he catches sight of Sugar, the pretty girl who works at the local bakery. Sugar is exactly what he wants: A fun, no-strings distraction. A friends-with-benefits arrangement that won’t break what’s left of his heart.


A Battered Heart

On the heels of an abusive marriage, Sugar Stonemyer is done with men. But when Jaxson Anderson strolls into the bakery with a very wicked offer, she can’t resist. One look at the fireman, and Sugar knows the Sawyer rumor mills haven’t exaggerated. Jaxson’s tall, dark, and smokin’ hot. He wants an arrangement, nothing more, and that’s perfect. 

Or so she thought. 

With each slow seduction, Sugar falls a little more. She has only herself to blame. She didn’t want either of them to have feelings, but that’s not how the game is played…

A man of integrity…with a secret desire

Moose Garrett just wants to do the right thing. Fulfill his duty. Honor his parents. Fix his neighbors’ tractors. Ignore the girl he needs to forget.

Everyone in Sawyer expects Moose to woo and wed the town beauty queen – not Georgia Rowland. Hell, Moose’s parents have all but signed a marriage contract with the revered patriarch of another wealthy Sawyer family.

So yeah, it’s true that Georgia’s been tempting him ever since he hit puberty and discovered the allure of the opposite gender, but that doesn’t mean he’s actually going to give into the temptation.

Georgia is strictly off limits.

Totally.

But matters of the heart are about as predictable as a wildfire – a wildfire that comes straight out of nowhere…and changes everything.


A woman who’s all business…with a secret crush

Georgia has spent a lot of years – roughly 26 of them or so – pretending Moose Garrett wasn’t the finest man in Sawyer. She pushes pesky thoughts of him clear out of her mind. She never pays a bit of attention to his powerful build, or how his blue jeans show off his lean and muscular body. And for the record, she barely even notices the way his slow, sultry smile makes her knees wobbly.

Because that hardly ever happens.

As the youngest branch manager of the Goldfork Credit Union, and the first female to hold that position, she’s too busy for any of that nonsense. Besides, everyone knows Moose is bound to marry Sawyer’s reigning beauty. Georgia is sure he’d never give a moment’s notice to…well, to someone like her.

But when Miss No Nonsense sets out on a hike in the foothills of Long Valley and gets trapped amidst the flames of a wildfire, the only man she’s ever wanted swoops in to save her.

So yeah, Moose is the last man she should dream about.

But he’s the one man who will walk through danger and smoke and fire.

Just to find her…

Tennessee Rowland is a perfect 10. A beauty queen. But she's hiding secrets.

Levi has wanted Tenny for a long time – practically all his life. Too bad she's a few thousand miles out of his league. After all, she comes from a different world. She’s the favorite daughter of the wealthiest man in town. She’s the opposite of everything he is and everything he’s ever known. He’s never had money. He’s no one’s favorite. When he was just a kid, his mother ran off, leaving him with his father – a mean, bitter drunk with a vicious back-hand.

A guy like Levi should forget about the high-class blonde with the sassy smile. But Tenny has a secret.

And that secret changes everything.


Levi Scranton’s the strong and silent type, but he’s got trouble written all over him.

Tenny knows she should stay far away from Levi. His father is trash. His mother skipped town years ago. But Levi is all Tenny can think about. She’s always been the golden child, always done exactly what was expected. But the tall, quiet man with the warm, sultry gaze makes her feel safe for the first time in her life.

Everyone says he’s from the wrong side of the tracks. Too bad Levi’s the only man she wants. He might be scarred, and he might come from nothing, but he plays the starring role in her heated dreams.

They both have secrets. They both have scars.

In one stunning moment, when the past comes storming back, Levi and Tenny will have to choose between love...or betrayal.

When Gage took over his grandparent’s bakery four years ago, love was the last thing on his mind. Despite the best efforts of his wanna-be-matchmaker sister, Emma, he was content to keep his nose to the grindstone, work his ass off, and make the bakery the success he knew it could be.

That all changed the day the neighbor from hell bought the shop next to his and began remodeling, destroying Gage’s well-ordered life in the process. It really was too bad she was so damn gorgeous...

Forbidden love is never easy…

Elijah Morland only wants one thing. 

Okay, so maybe there are two items on the list. 

But more important than anything else is to spend more time with his daughter, Brooklyn, no matter how hard his ex-wife is fighting to keep them apart. Desperate, he takes a job at Brooklyn’s elementary school to be closer to her, where she can be his entire focus. 

Which was working just the way he’d planned…right up until he met her teacher, Miss Hannah Lambert. He sees the way she cares for Brooklyn and despite his best efforts, he starts to fall for her.

He can’t date his daughter’s teacher, though – it’s against the rules. Not to mention his ex-wife would have a field day in court if she found out.

But what if, for just one night, the rules didn’t apply?


She’s been hurt before…

It’s simple, really. She cannot, under any circumstances, fall for Brooklyn Morland’s father, even if Brooklyn is her not-so-secret favorite student. 

But he’s standing there in her classroom, looking at her like she’s not invisible. Like she’s not hidden beneath her coke-bottle glasses and oversized teacher cardigan.

The rules are clear: She cannot date a student’s father. She’d be risking her reputation, her career, her everything.

But sometimes, love is worth risking it all…


Lessons in Love is the eighth novel in the Long Valley series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!
