â€œBEST 10 ROMANCE OF SPRING 2014â€³ –Publisherâ€™s Weekly starred review
“It’s incredibly good!” –Romantic Times 4-1/2 stars, TOP PICK
“A riveting adventure, a tender romance.” –Booklist starred review
Emily Beale and Mark Henderson have left the Night Stalkers to form a new helicopter team of wildland firefighters. These heli-aviation firefighters battle more than flames. The elite fire experts of Mount Hood Aviation fly into places even the CIA canâ€™t penetrate.
Carly Thomas could read burn patterns before she knew the alphabet. A third-generation forest fire specialist who lost both her father and her fiancÃ© to the flames, sheâ€™s learned to live life like she fights fires: with emotions shut down.
Former smokejumper Steve â€œMerksâ€ Mercer can no longer fight fires up close and personal, but he can still use his intimate knowledge of wildland burns as a spotter and drone specialist. Assigned to fly in a Firehawk attack helicopter with Carly, they take to the skies to battle the worst wildfire in decades and discover a terrorist threat hidden deep in the Oregon wildernessâ€”but itâ€™s the heat between them that really sizzles.
Over the next two weeks I will be visiting some great sites and I’ll be talking about everything including:
- the origin of the series
- who I would cast in the movie
- what research I did
- how I balance authenticity with romance
There will also be the chance to win a free copy of Pure Heat at almost every one of these sites!
