The White Pine Firefighters, #4
The culmination of the White Pine series, as the six lovers from the previous three books reunite for a charity cause, bringing out past regrets, present loves, and future temptations.
Trent Rodgers returns to White Pine with his sexy lover, Angel Montero in tow, with a surprising bit of news. Austin Walker gets the shock of his life after saving a man from a burning building. Not to mention his sudden doubts about his lover, Tucker O'Connell, when an old flame comes to town for a good cause. Joey Silva, the burly, bearded hunk from the neighboring Honor Hills has tried to be monogamous with his new lover, Nick Lynch, but a new temptation threatens their love.
Tossing these six lives into turmoil is celebrity photographer Ellis Van Pelt, who has come to White Pine to do a photo shoot with the firefighters, intent on producing a calendar where the money raised is for charity. But hidden secrets are about to be exposed, upsetting the delicate balance of their relationships. All of this is set around a series of mysterious fires that have claimed abandoned structures in White Pine. Were they arson, and if so, why? Does the arsonist have a secret connection to one of the firefighters?
