In this newest book, author Jill Shalvis brings to vivid life the dangerous and suspenseful lives of the brave men and women who are firefighters. She takes a reader right into the fiery battle, keeping you on the edge of your seat as you get lost in the realistic, action packed scenes.

Lyndie Anderson is a Bush Pilot. She’s a very independent woman, and her career is her whole life. When she takes on an assignment to take a fireman to a raging fire burning in her “own backyard” of Cooper Canyon, Mexico, the last thing she expects is to suddenly be faced with fighting a fire of her own. Her passenger is sexy, moody, enigma Griffin Moore and Lyndie realizes that her life is never going to be the same again after meeting him.

Griffin has emotional demons to fight, along with facing the raging inferno of the Mexico fire. A tragedy in his recent past has left him emotionally empty and scarred with guilt. Fighting a fire again is the last thing he wants to do, but he reluctantly agrees to go oversee the one in Cooper Canyon, praying all the way that when the time comes he’ll be able to face the fire --- and his haunting demons of guilt and fear.

Lyndie and Griffin face an attraction for each other right from the start, and for personal reasons they try to fight it. But being together, facing danger, and their secret fears, brings them closer together as each day passes.

This is a page-turner, with non-stop action, and readers will enjoy the romantic suspense between Lyndie and Griffin. Look for Ms. Shalvis next book Blue Flame due out in December 2004.
