a
Portrait of a Firefighter Hero 
A hero is strong, kind and sometimes ruthless. He’s protective of those who need to be safeguarded and, though he can be very tough, he’s also extremely fair. By definition a hero is larger than life…someone who goes above and beyond what most of us would do.

In romance fiction a hero is all of these things. He’s also a strong jaw, a muscular pair of arms, a broad chest, and a cut pair of abs. He’s sexy because of his strength as well as his physical attributes. And among heroes, the firefighter is an elite breed…a very special representation of what it means to be heroic.

My story Slow Burner will release on September 29th as part of the Into the Flames box set. This set features firefighters, 7 men and 1 woman, who face their fears and defy danger to do what most of us would never do…walk into danger to save lives and property. It’s this very specialness that makes firefighters such popular romantic heroes. So what are the 10 top traits that make a great firefighter? The following list came from FireRecruit.com. You’ll no doubt see all of these traits represented in the heroes of Into the Flames:


1. Integrity: Honest, trustworthy, reliable and accountable

2. Physical Fitness: Ability to perform the physical tasks

3. Communication: Good people skills, articulate

4. Flexibility/Adaptability: Low-maintenance, able to work under stress, compromising, able to adapt and overcome

5. Dedication: Passion, pride, heart, desire, drive, competence, work ethic

6. Team Player

7. Mechanical Aptitude: Good with technical problem solving

8. Public Image-Conscious

9. Tolerance: Understanding, compassionate, level-headed, thick-skinned

10. Self Sacrifice: Courageous, giving





A love that burns slowly burns longest, creating the greatest heat.

Though they haven’t seen each other for fifteen years, Duncan Yves has never forgotten Hilda Bennet, or the feelings of love and protection she engendered in him when they were kids. So when she becomes the target of a madman who kills with fire and calls his deadly work Art, it seems perfectly natural for Duncan to try to protect her. Unfortunately, he soon learns that protecting Hilda just might bring the past crashing back down on both of them.

Hilda was just a girl when she last saw Duncan, and her childish dreams of living with him behind a picket fence were squashed when he went away. But when they finally find each other again, the past that separated them all those years earlier still seems determined to keep them apart.

Can they nurture the embers of a love that was forged in childhood into the full-fledged inferno it seems destined to be? Or will the destruction of yesterday’s fire finally smother that blossoming flame, and leave their love in ashes?
