About the Author
After ten years of graduate school and too many degrees, NYT and USA Today bestselling author Anne Marsh escaped to become a technical writer. When not planted firmly in front of the laptop translating Engineer into English, Anne enjoys gardening, running (even if it's just to the 7-11 for slurpees), and reading books curled up with her kids. The best part of writing romance, however, is finally being able to answer the question: "So... what do you do with a PhD in Slavic Languages and Literatures?"
She lives in Northern California with her husband, two kids, and four cats.

I know, one should not judge a book by its cover and I was prepared to do just that. Reason being if you're going to photoshop an image, make sure the parts line up. The pants and the model just don't fit, which in turn tells me that whoever approved this didn't have an eye for detail. Major faux pas.
The first pages were difficult to settle into, not how I'd start a story but it was unique. I trudged through and am glad I did.
Ms. Marsh painted a realistic mental image and presented that world well, the characters well rounded. I did have issues with our two main characters though. Mimi is now in her late twenties and still acting like a teenager. That happens. However, through out the story, I didn't see any real valid reason for her reasons other than she made bad choices and was judging others by someone else's mistakes. She needed to get a more mature perspective. One would think she'd get tired of toting that very broad paint brush around. Ok, so Mimi doesn't trust people or her judgments of them but she also doesn't give them a chance to show her their worth, either. When she is finally put in a place where the pickings are slim does she start to take a second look. At least in relation to the women around her. The men she just keeps on keeping on until one man wouldn't take no for an answer.
Gotta love Mack, he's everything a woman could want in a man. I felt that he was well presented here and saw more in Mimi than she saw in herself.
I loved the twists and turns in this story, the background drama fit well. There were parts that could have been fleshed out better, like when Mimi gets caught out by the dumpster but that's Okey.
My heart went out to Abby, unfortunately, these things happen. If it were me, I'd be making my next story about her and perhaps another fire jumper new to the scene. <weg>
Ms. Marsh, thank you for such a good story. I'm keeping this one. Two thumbs up.
The book cover has been changed. Sad, the original one was more fitting to the story.
Though this story can be read as a stand alone, it is part of the When SEALs Come Home Series. Mack is not only a former SEAL, but a part of the Donavan Smoke Jumpers. Anne Marsh has written an action packed storyline, with amazing characters. Not only does she tell Mimi and Mack's story, but she also gives glimpses of the other fantastic characters residing in Strong, CA. I can not wait to read the next book in this series!
Mimi had always been a bad-girl and messed up a lot. The more she tried to get rid of Mack, the more he dug in his heels. She only ever did the love 'em and leave 'em thing thinking she didn't deserve any more. Mack wanted her to see her true value so he stuck around.
I've always liked Anne Marsh's books so I couldn't wait to read Sweet Burn. Even though it had a slow start it was suspenseful, thrilling and VERY hot. I liked the story line and that there were surprising events throughout the book. While I liked Mack being a strong but gentle and compassionate man, I didn't like Mimi much at all. She was so determined to believe that she was bad because of her "wild-child" past that she couldn't see that she wasn't that person any more.
Frequent changes in tense (present-tense verbs that should've been past-tense) drove me crazy. Almost as if the editor took too quick a look at it before publication. But the story was so good I can forgive mistakes (and fully recognize I'm the one with the problem, the inability to look past the errors. I see them whether I want to or not.)
Sparkling conversations. Loved how Mack and Mimi communicate. This story will stay with me for a long while. Kudos to the author! I've read a couple by Anne Marsh now and must find more! Highly recommended to fans of spicy, sexy contemporary romance.
