About this ebook


“Love is a responsibility. Love is a promise. Love is a life sentence.” – Grandpa Doug

Hotshot Evan Bishop was taught at a very early age that love was something to be taken seriously. The thirty-four-year-old alpha firefighter had only loved one woman his entire life, his childhood sweetheart who just told him she was engaged to another man. So when he locks eyes with a blue-eyed, blonde bombshell who has him falling fast at first sight, his instinct is to deny it, ignore it, and resist it. 

Actress Shayne Fox was taught at a very early age that love was a luxury that she couldn’t afford. From growing up in foster care to working in Hollywood, the beautiful ingénue's only concern was survival not love. So when she locks eyes with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger who has her wanting something that she never allowed herself to feel, her instinct is to dismiss it, suppress, and avoid it.

He was used to being in control of all things at all times but would he be able to control his heart? She was used to life giving her lemons but would she recognize it when it gave her love?

Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one that is the hardest to take.  

Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA—and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

Author's Note: Coming in Hot was previously published as Fire and Temptation

Oh my!! I don’t know how the amazing duo of Melanie Shawn is able to write a better, improved, and sexy story than their previous book, but they did it with Fire and Temptation, book 16 in their Hope Fall series which I just loved. Hot shot fire fighter Evan keeps his thoughts and feelings to himself. After getting injured during the last major fire he is at loose ends. The girl he’s loved since middle school is engaged to and pregnant by another man. After being tapped by Kyle Austin Reed to help give technical advice for a film Evan meets the actress Shayne Fox. If love at first sight is possible, then these two have it in spades. As these two spend time together they open to each other, telling things they had never told anyone else. The electricity and chemistry between these two could supply Hope Falls with years of energy. These two are perfect for each other. Evan is the first guy who aroused sexual feelings in Shayne. Evan finally understands that look guys in Hope Falls get when they talk about their wives. There’s so much more to this story that I would spoil it saying more that Evan is my new book boyfriend. Through their amazing and vivid writing Melanie Shawn did an outstanding job tackling this love story and the magic of Hope Falls. I genuinely enjoyed reading Fire and Temptation and was pleased that Melanie Shawn found a way for Evan and Shayne to open their hearts, share their love and find a way to a happy forever. Although this book is part of a series, it can also be read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Hope Falls series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

**I voluntarily read a copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Evan Bishop has always believed in love and he thought that he was going to end up marrying the woman he had loved since childhood. When she rolls into town to tell him that she's not only marrying someone else, but is pregnant to boot, he knows that he has no choice to move on. He's got some extra time on his hands due to an injury he suffered at work, so when he's asked to consult on Kyle Austen Reed's latest movie, he wants to say no, but doesn't once he gets a look at the lead actress. Shayne Fox has never been part of a conventional family and now that she's in the limelight after becoming an actress she really only has two people in her life she can count on. She's relied mostly on herself and when she heads to Hope Falls to film her next movie, her plan is just to survive. What she's not expecting is being welcomed with open arms and a town full of people that like her for her and not for her name. When Shanye and Evan lay eyes on one another the first time, they could start their own forest fire. The sparks are huge and immediate! Will these two be able to deal with their own insecurities or will their relationship end in a pile of ash? I really enjoyed these characters and the chemistry between Shanye and Evan was insane! Hope Falls always brings a smile to my face and this book was absolutely no different. It's always fun to revisit this idyllic town and all of the great people who inhabit it!

Emotionally thrilling, sexy, fun, action packed romantic adventure that has you believing in love at first sight. They may not have the same views on love in the beginning but that does not stop them from falling anyway. Evan Bishop believed in love and thought he had it all with his childhood sweetheart until she tells him she is engaged to someone else. Shayne Fox is a smoking hot actress that was taught at a young age that love was not for her. Then she lands in Hope Falls for her latest movie roll and locks eyes with a hunk of a firefighter that makes her swoon. Loved the white hot sparks and chemistry these two have. Highly entertaining reading.
