Gallery: S. & S. (Firefighters, Bk. 1). Oct. 2018. 416p. ISBN 9781501194900. $26.99; ebk. ISBN 9781501194924. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
OrangeReviewStarForced to give up her job as a firefighter when she loses a hand in a near-deadly disaster, Anne Ashburn is putting her life back together as a fire inspector as fiercely as she once fought the flames. She just wishes Danny Maguire, the hotshot, brave-to-a-fault firefighter who feels responsible, could do the same. A series of seemingly connected blazes soon have Anne on the trail of a deadly arsonist, and when she becomes a target herself, Danny vows to do anything to keep her safe. Rugged heroes and heroines battle fierce emotions and infernos and routinely deal with tragedy and heartbreak in a story brought to stunning life by rough, realistic detail, passion, and snarky, sometimes gallows humor. A pair of perfectly matched protagonists learn to deal with their demons and reach well-deserved love along the way.
VERDICT Raw, gritty, and gripping, this adrenaline-laced tale whips along at lightning speed and is impossible to put down. An impressive, "consuming" launch to Ward's widely anticipated series. Ward (The Thief) is noted for her popular "Black Dagger Brotherhood" titles; she lives in Kentucky.
