She lives to fight fires... But he's lit an inferno she can't quench

Carly Thomas could read burn patterns before she knew the alphabet. A third-generation forest fire specialist who lost both her father and her fiance to the flames, she's learned to live life like she fights fires: with emotions shut down.

Former smokejumper Steve "Merks" Mercer can no longer fight fires up close and personal, but he can still use his intimate knowledge of wildland burns as a spotter and drone specialist. Assigned to copilot a Firehawk with Carly, they take to the skies to battle the worst wildfire in decades and discover a terrorist threat hidden deep in the Oregon wilderness?but it's the heat between them that really sizzles.

The first in M.L Buchman's firefighter romantic suspense series featuring a team of daredevil smokejumpers who fight more than fires. The elite fire experts of Mount Hood Aviation fly into places even the CIA can't penetrate.

Firehawks Series:
Pure Heat (Book 1)
Full Blaze (Book 2)
Hot Point (Book 3)
