The White Pine Firefighters, #3
Sexy hunk Joey Silva takes center stage, as he comes to White Pine as the temporary fire captain, only to find his own sense of sex and love questioned by a new arrival with a mysterious past.
Joey Silva is strong, sexual, a hairy hunk powered by his unquenchable sex drive as much by his passion for fighting fires. Arriving as the newly named Deputy Chief of the White Pine Fire Department, Joey is trying to prove he's worthy of this important job. Sex should be the last thing on his mind. But one man, a young, impressionable volunteer named Gil Keane cannot hide his obvious attraction to the burly Joey. Yet it is another man, quiet newcomer Nick Lynch who commands Joey's attention, even as the man's past remains cloaked in mystery.
These three men find themselves linked by attraction, by temptations that threaten to undo them, by what they want and what they cannot have. As a bitterly cold winter falls on White Pine, placing the residents of this isolated Adirondack town in danger, a series of unrelated fires will forever connect them, until finally their own raging passions explode. But it's a devastating secret that, when exposed, will ultimately decide their fates.
