"I love the Callaways! Heartwarming romance, intriguing suspense and sexy alpha heroes. What more could you want?" — NYT Bestselling Author Bella Andre 

Sara had always been untouchable, his sister's best friend, and the girl next door...

Smokejumper Aiden Callaway never questioned his job until a fire took the life of his friend, Kyle, and left Aiden with injuries and fractured memories. The truth may clear Aiden of blame but destroy Kyle's reputation and hurt the people he left behind.

Sara has never forgiven or forgotten the way Aiden brought their teenage relationship crashing down. But the sparks between Aiden and Sara have been smoldering for a very long time. Sara is afraid to take another chance on the man who broke her heart, and Aiden knows better than anyone how dangerous an intense fire can be.

  • Loved the story of Sara and Aiden

    By sbsbrinson
    Great story out of the series! When Sara and Aiden both come back to San Francisco and meet up again in very unusual circumstances, it becomes apparent that their interest in each other isn’t over. Individual heartaches and circumstances take them through a lot of emotion. Their love finally anchors them.
  • Good story

    By tired of trying to find name
    Good story but the author should have learned more of the basics of Northern California. First of all the fire season doesn’t end at the beginning of October, especially in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Second, it’s Shasta Lake not Lake Shasta. Maybe that just annoyed me because I’m from that area.
