Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling — at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home — even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering in the air. Fortunately, this year’s rookie crop is among the strongest ever — and Gulliver Curry’s one of the best. He’s also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids’ arcade. He came to Missoula to follow in the footsteps of Lucas “Iron Man” Tripp, yet he’s instantly more fascinated by his hero’s daughter. Rowan, as a rule, doesn’t hook up with other smoke jumpers, but Gull is convinced he can change her mind. And damn if he doesn’t make a good case to be an exception to the rule. Everything is thrown off balance, though, when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year’s tragedy. Rowan knows she can’t complicate things with Gull — any distractions in the air or on the ground could be lethal. But if she doesn’t find someone she can lean on when the heat gets intense, her life may go down in flames. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/4/2014

    " Good. Too much firefighting detail (and my husband is a retired firefighter) The core story is ok and of course the relationships rock! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronda | 2/3/2014

    " I was fascinated by this story of forest fire rangers! It was amazing and again I love my strong woman characters! She is amazing and Roberts crafts this story so well. She really did her research and it made this story one I could not put down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Booksage | 1/27/2014

    " Couldn't finish it. Too much extra info and a slow progression. Hope Ms. Roberts returns to her old writing self soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 1/25/2014

    " Not one of Nora Roberts' best--the characters felt a little shallow and the "suspenseful" ending was predictable--but it's an enjoyable light read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jesi | 1/23/2014

    " It was okay. It didn't inspire me to want to be a Zoolie, but it wasn't bad, either. I don't think Roberts *does* "bad." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Pritts | 1/19/2014

    " I love the fact that her books always have a strong female character. Enjoyed this book a bit more than some of her others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peyton | 1/19/2014

    " A solid romance by La Nora. I do enjoy when she researches fun professions to give to her heroes and heroines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eveline Evans | 1/6/2014

    " It held my interest til the end. First book I've read about smoke jumpers. Read it when 90% of Texas was on fire last year. Made me appreciate what they do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Peterson woomer | 12/24/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Wise | 12/18/2013

    " Very good story. I have a new respect for all the men and women that fight forest fires. I loved reading about them and all the people in their crew. Nora kept you aware of all that was going on throughout the entire story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa | 12/14/2013

    " I appreciated the finally drawn detail of a smoke jumpers life, the heroines strength and intelligence as well as the equality between the hero and heroine. The characters were fully drawn and three dimensional and those are the elements that carried the book for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia Hickman | 12/10/2013

    " Entertaining and informative.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 12/9/2013

    " DNF. I tried, I really did. There were too many characters and I couldn't get into it. I figured out the killer right away before the killing started. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 4/15/2013

    " Had to be one of the best Nora books I've read. The ending...wow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 7/23/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 5/23/2011

    " Fantastic--I read it in one day because I couldn't put it down. I kind of knew how it was going to end about 30 pages in, but Nora Roberts writes so well, it never matters. Great book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/22/2011

    " I didn't love it. I usually love Nora Roberts. She, along with Doritos, is my guilty pleasure. However, not as good as her usual offerings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 5/21/2011

    " right now I love this book and I'm nearing finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/20/2011

    " Not up to her usual excellent standard. Just too much technical detail this time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 5/19/2011

    " Not as brilliant as others by her. The characters were a tad flat, and the main character a little annoying. The mystery part was decent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dionne | 5/17/2011

    " pretty good. liked the fact that Nora bits us places that we don't normally see. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 5/17/2011

    " A little mystery, some suspense and action, and some romance...what's not to like? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra | 5/17/2011

    " I as a rule really enjoy Nora Roberts for light reading, but this is far from her best. A few of her metaphors in this book are insipid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Geraldine | 5/16/2011

    " It was ok.....not as good as previous books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 5/15/2011

    " Started out a little slow. It got much better in the middle. This is not one of her best novels in my opinion so far, still reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 5/15/2011

    " Enjoyable, although I guessed the villain halfway through the book~ "
