 He’s a fire chief who curses out the mayor at every turn. She’s the mayor who needs him in a crisis.

 

He’s a line firefighter attracted to the mayor’s daughter. She’s a woman who wants nothing to do with a man like him.

 

Chief Chase Talbot has butted heads with Mayor Vanessa Jordan since she was elected to office two years ago. And since he’s the head of the fire department, she’s his boss. Still, he takes no grief from her. But after a fire involving her parents, Vanessa turns to Chase for help. When the situation calms down, both are unable to get their relationship back to what it was. Throw in troubled teens, estrangement from family, a possible arson and you get a complex, gripping plotline and an emotional and scintillating love story.

 

Interweaved with Chase and Vanessa’s lives is Joe Santori, the young, brash and immature firefighter of book one. Now Joe is a wiser, more settled lieutenant running his own crew. When Holly Michaels, a fourth grade teacher, and the mayor’s daughter, moves into the condo next to his, she intrigues him. But Holly doesn’t want to get involved: Joe is worldly, gorgeous and way out of her league. The problem is, he doesn’t think so. These young people go on a rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows, but even after they give into their passion, the old Joe resurfaces and Holly’s having none of it.

 

It comes as a shock to both couples that contrary to what each thought, they don’t have all they need!

 

Cameo appearances of readers’ favorite firefighters from Hidden Cove, as well as Shay’s trademark tense and nail-biting rescue scenes, sizzling sexual encounters, and emotions exploding on every page, this book will pull you in and not let go until the characters find their way back to each other.

 

If you haven’t read the first four books of The Rockford Fire Department, be sure to grab FEEL THE HEAT, RISKING IT ALL, CODE OF HONOR and NEVER FAR AWAY, all intense firefighter romance books.

 She saves him from a fire, then steals his heart without even trying. When white hot attraction kicks in, sparks fly!

Francey Cordaro is a dedicated firefighter, devoted daughter and a loyal friend who has made her way in a man’s world. She rejects material goods, doesn’t give a whit about her striking looks and focuses on saving lives, spending time with her family and friends, working out and playing poker with the guys. Until she meets Alex Templeton.

A wealthy businessman, Alex is the epitome of success in every area of his life. A decent man, he returns home to run the family company when his father takes ill and his brother loses his way. What he can’t control is his reaction to the sexy firefighter who dragged him from near death. She’s gorgeous, fun-loving and challenges him at every turn. But she refuses a relationship with him.

With differences that rival champagne vs. beer, uptown galas vs. karaoke bars, and the world of high finance vs. the reality of walking into burning buildings, their relationship seems doomed. Or is it?

With a secondary reunion romance as fiery as Alex and Francey’s, and cameo appearances of readers’ favorite firefighters from Hidden Cove, as well as Shay’s trademark tense and exciting rescue scenes, this book will pull on your heartstrings and make you route for these very likable characters.

 Author’s note: the original title of RISKING IT ALL was THE MAN WHO LOVED CHRISTMAS. The book has been fully revised and updated and also contains cameos from the Hidden Cove Firefighters.

 

She’s the only woman he can’t charm. He’s the only man she can never love.

 

Dylan O’Roarke has the ideal existence. As a firefighter, he’s been at the top of his game. Even when he’s reprimanded for his risk-taking, the accolades far exceed the censure. Women fall at his feet, and he always has a blond bombshell on his arm.

 

By-the-book Beth Winters does everything with precision and caution in her job as an EMS instructor and recruit trainer, even if she is considered stern and stoic. She has a few good friends she manages to keep some modicum of distance from. Life is best lived on its outskirts, where it can’t wound you so badly you might not survive.

 

The only place the two of them “lose it” is with each other. When Dylan was her student at the academy, she sought out ways to focus on his flaws. And he irritated her intentionally, snidely nicknaming her Lizzie Borden. With eight years of open animosity that rivaled that of the Hatfields and McCoys, they were both grateful when he graduated.

 

Years later, fate throws them together again when he’s assigned as her EMS partner to train new recruits. Working side by side with him, Beth can’t deny his rapport with the students or his warm and giving nature. And Dylan sees the vulnerable side to her, caused by a past that would level an ordinary person. When physical attraction flares between them, they can’t stop their inevitable coming together.

 

Falling in love isn’t in the cards for Beth and she rejects the hand they’re dealt. She can never be part of the family Dylan wants. And he can’t break down her final, indestructible wall.

 

Nail-biting fire scenes, sizzling sexual encounters and the revelation of background that will make you cry buckets permeate this beautiful story of compromise and undying love.

 He was the most upstanding lieutenant in the department, until he made a critical error in judgement that almost ended his career. And she’s a mistake just waiting to happen.

 

Fate has been cruel to Lieutenant Jake Scarlatta. His father died when he was ten, his best friend stabbed him in the back and his marriage went sour. When he’s saddled with a female firefighter on his crew, he knows trouble is coming his way again.

 

Chelsea Whitmore is a pariah in the RFD. A stellar firefighter and competitive weight lifter, she assumes none of that will matter this time around either. When Scarlatta says he’ll help her fit in, she doesn’t believe a word he says. She plans to keep her head down and her heart safe from more bruising.

 

But when she’s accused of one rookie mistake after another on the line, that she knows she didn’t make, all hell breaks loose.

 

If that isn’t bad enough Chelsea finds herself falling for Jake. And he feels the same.

Can things get any worse?

 

With cutting edge fire scenes, exploding passion at the station house, and emotions shooting off the charts, readers will gasp at the stunning conclusion to this suspenseful and scorching story.

 

Cameo appearances from your favorite guys in Hidden Cove will delight readers.
