The one thing that Aubrey Carsen always wanted was to be a firefighter with her two friends. She returns back home to her city and new company only to have to prove herself like a proby. But, she can take it. Soon she discovers that a man from her past, an old high school crush, is too close for comfort. The day she rescues a little boy from a tree things begin to unfold in a way she never expected. Now, being back in town has a whole new outlook. Is it possible that her time has finally come and everything she's wanted will fall in line? Even as she is afraid to believe it.
Pierce Emory, the bank loan manager, has been burned by love for the last time. His ex-fiancé walks out on him the week before their wedding and he can't see himself getting lost in love again. Then beautiful, bold and vibrant Aubrey is back. In school, she'd been a good girl--home before dark and straight A's. When he left for college, he put away those feels for her. However, the moment he realizes she’s back the old flames rise up in a blaze that promises to scorch them both.
Can either of them walk away when the heat of the flame is so enticing and hot?
