Summary

She lives to fight fires... But he's lit an inferno she can't quench

Carly Thomas could read burn patterns before she knew the alphabet. A third-generation forest fire specialist who lost both her father and her fiancé to the flames, she's learned to live life like she fights fires: with emotions shut down.

Former smokejumper Steve "Merks" Mercer can no longer fight fires up close and personal, but he can still use his intimate knowledge of wildland burns as a spotter and drone specialist. Assigned to copilot a Firehawk with Carly, they take to the skies to battle the worst wildfire in decades and discover a terrorist threat hidden deep in the Oregon wilderness'but it's the heat between them that really sizzles.

The first in M.L Buchman's firefighter romantic suspense series featuring a team of daredevil smokejumpers who fight more than fires. The elite fire experts of Mount Hood Aviation fly into places even the CIA can't penetrate.

Pure Heat (Book 1)

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Injured in a firefighting accident, Steve Mercer, smoke jumper-turned-drone pilot, is new to Oregon's Mount Hood Aviation unit, and he is feeling physically useless and unmanned after months in rehab. Carly Thomas, known in firefighting circles as The Flame Witch for her legendary firefighting ability, is a third-generation firefighter who has lost both her father and her fiance to fires and wants nothing serious to do with another man. Their attraction, however, is instant and hot, though it does take them a while to admit to it, let alone trust it. Beyond the love story, Buchman provides a riveting adventure involving forest aviation firefighting and a band of home-grown terrorists. Mark Henderson and Emily Beale, SOARofficers and helicopter pilots from Buchman's (Take Over at Midnight, 2013) great Night Stalkers series, are now part of the MHA unit, allowing addicted Night Stalkers readers to catch up with them and meet another impressive crew of adrenaline junkies. Strong, competent female characters and compelling technical and regional details are juxtaposed with a tender romance as Buchman launches his new Firehawks series, a natural for all military romance fans.--Chelton, Mary K.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The flames of passion burn brightly in this meticulously researched, hard-hitting, and suspenseful contemporary. Carly Thomas is the senior fire-reader for Mount Hood Aviation, which provides aerial support for Oregon wildland firefighters. Steve Mercer is a former California smokejumper, sidelined due to injuries and now retasked as a drone specialist. Sparks fly between the two, both on and off the job, as they battle a series of deadly forest fires. While they eventually admit their mutual attraction, they both have emotional and physical damage to overcome. Their greatest challenge comes as all hands are mobilized to fight a near-catastrophic blaze, turning up a hostile surprise hidden deep in the forest. Buchman writes with beauty and simmering passion. His characters are complex, and the underlying romance is both sweet and intense. A memorable supporting cast includes characters from Buchman's Night Stalkers military romantic suspense series, but this high-stakes romance is easily accessible for new readers.
