Peyton Michaels is a writer. She is going to be doing an article on the Bear Claws, a top hot shot team. They are wildland firefighters who put their life on the line every time they go in. Peyton is searching for a reason why people do this type of work. Her husband was a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. He had enjoyed his work immensely and seemed to feed off the high derived from it. Peyton is determined to write a good story and get a few answers along the way.
Gabe Cooper is the best hot shot around. He’s been doing it for awhile so his age is starting to show a bit. He feels the aches and pains longer than he used to. He is also in no mood to put up with a nosy reporter who is probably just going to twist his words and make him look dumb. Considering she is only here for a short time, he plans to put up with her long enough for her to get her story and get out of his life.
Ms. Fredrick writes a story with such precise detail that the reader feels like they have received a small course in firefighting. The procedures that are involved in containing and fighting wild fires are well-researched and thoroughly described. The love-hate relationship that develops between the two main characters of Peyton and Gabe is timed perfectly. There is ample time for the couple to get to know one another and build up into the realization of their feelings that have far surpassed their expectations. Add in possible arson and loss of life and you have a suspense-filled, power-packed story that is a fantastic way to spend the weekend. I had not read this author’s work before, and was immensely glad I did.
