Callie McClain is back in Montana after a twelve year absence to care for her ailing father, despite the fact she can’t stand the cold and isolation. But in an ironic twist of fate, it seems Montana is finally giving her what she wants—blistering heat and a fiery glow that threatens to incinerate everything in its path. Wildfire. The only thing hotter than the advancing flames is the smokejumper who comes to her rescue, and suddenly Callie is finding reasons why Montana might just have everything she’s ever wanted.
Tyler Dodson can’t recall a time when he didn’t want to be a smokejumper. There’s nothing as dangerous—or as exhilarating—as jumping, until he rescues a pretty veterinarian from an advancing wildfire. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. He doesn’t need that kind of complication in his life, and distractions of any kind can be deadly in his line of work. So why can’t he keep his mind – and his hands – off of Callie McClain?
"Heat" by Karen Foley is a book that has a bit of adventure, danger, love and "heat". Tyler and Callie meet under the hottest of circumstances - in the middle of a forest fire. Ms. Foley does an excellent job of describing the perils of wildfires. I felt I was right there with them and at times, found I was catching my breath waiting to see what would happen. Tyler, a sexy smokejumper, is attracted to Callie but fights the attraction. Callie, also attracted, feels it can go nowhere since she lives in California and he in Montana. The time they spend together I found to be warm and endearing. I enjoyed the aspect of the wolf sanctuary too. Ms. Foley has certainly written and enjoyable tale that held my interest and I look forward to reading more. Note - this is book four of the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone as I have not read the previous books and found I could follow along easily. (received copy for honest review)
