The White Pine Firefighters, #1
When new-to-town Angel Montero joins the White Pine fire department, temperatures arise, especially for Trent Rogers, who is still reeling from his father's fiery death.
The men of White Pine have their secrets. Trent Rogers prefers not to talk about his past, but the mysterious, half-naked man who stumbled into his secluded cabin can't even remember his own name. On personal leave from the White Pine Fire Department, Trent wishes he could escape his mistakes with such anonymity. Secluded together, each buries their emotions by indulging their wildest fantasies.
Angel Montero is the new firefighter come to fill Trent's place, who in no time displays his bravery during a particularly fierce fire. Angel also catches the eye of blonde-haired stud Austin Walker, a fellow fireman and Trent's ex. Neither man can douse the fires that rage between them, and before long they are embroiled in a heated affair.
These men are unknowingly connected by a deadly tragedy, and it is only after another suspicious accident that they begin to piece together their secrets to find the truth.
