The heat rises fast when the wildfire burns.
“Buchman writes with beauty and passion... The flames of passion burn brightly in this meticulously researched, hard-hitting, and suspenseful contemporary. Best 10 romance of the spring.” – Publishers Weekly
Carly Thomas could read burn patterns before she knew the alphabet. A third-generation forest fire specialist who lost both her father and her fiancé to the flames, she’s learned to live life like she fights fires: with her emotions shut down.
Former smokejumper Steve “Merks” Mercer can no longer parachute in to battle the fire, but he can still join the fight with his all-seeing drone.
When they take to the skies to battle the worst wildfire in decades and discover a terrorist threat hidden deep in the Oregon wilderness—it’s the heat between them that truly sizzles.
