Light My Fire is the first book in the Summer of the Burning Sky series. This story was packed full of action and danger, with plenty of romantic tension thrown in, as well!
Readers can jump into this series, even if they haven’t read the Montana Fire series to which it is loosely connected. The smoke jumper novels are just so exciting and I find myself struggling to set these stories down.
The two main characters, Tucker and Stevie, were definitely hauling around some intense emotional baggage. They were such interesting people to read about. Tucker’s absolute dedication to protecting others was really wonderful. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Former bad-boy Tucker Newman has learned his lesson—as the temporary team leader of the Jude County Smokejumpers, he’s all about following the rules to keep his team safe. Especially when he has to partner with a group of local low-security prisoners to knock down the raging fire. But the prisoners are not who they seem, and when they stage a break, kidnapping one of his teammates, he’ll have to break every rule he knows to get her back.
US Marshal Stevie Mills knows that to get the job done, she must work alone. She simply can’t risk another person getting hurt because of her. When she discovers that a wanted fugitive accused of rape and murder has not only been set free to fight the fire—but is now on the lam with a hostage– the last thing she needs is a zealous smokejumper getting in the way of her pursuit.
Whether they like it or not, Tucker and Stevie must join forces if they hope to save lives, and in the meantime, they just might discover a new definition for the word teamwork, in book 1 of the Summer of the Burning Sky.
