He's a hotshot firefighter addicted to risk. She's the sultry beauty he never saw coming....
Maya Jackson doesn't sleep with strangers. Until the night grief sent her to the nearest bar and into the arms of the most explosive lover she's ever had. Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake. Now her number one suspect in a string of deadly wildfires.
Risking his life on a daily basis is what gets Logan up in the morning. As the leader of the elite Tahoe Pines Hotshot Crew, he won't back down from a blaze - or from beautiful, lethal Maya Jackson. She may have seduced him with her tears and her passion, but it'll be a cold day in hell before Logan lets down his guard again. But when Maya's life is threatened, his natural-born-hero instincts kick in, and Logan vows to protect the woman sworn to bring him down. And as desire reignites, nothing - not the killer fire nor the killer hot on their trail - can douse the flames.

Reading is my passion, happy endings the greatest gift an author can give me.
To love a firefighter or anyone in any kind of risky job is hard. To risk losing the one you love to either fire or a bullet takes courage and I think this story did a good job with Maya's doubts. I really liked the fact that Maya was doing what most would consider a man's job: she investigated fires. She is comfortable and sure of what she knows. Logan is the perfect heroe. Not only a Hot Shot but a man with a heart and willing to die for those he cares for. While trying to find the arsonist behind a wild fire Maya learned to trust in love and in Logan.
Fast paced story with well defined characters.
Excellent narration. Very well written. I found I could not put this down and listened all night long. These brave, dedicated hotshots are awesome!
One of the worst books in my life. The description of main characters is so repetitive, that by the middle of the book I could predict the next sentence. Usual clichés used so much, it made me gag.
Wild Heat is the first book in Bella Andre's Hot Shots: Men of Fire series, set in gorgeous Lake Tahoe. If you've ever been there you know just how tranquil it can be on the lake. It can also be a fierce and terrifying place when you hit the Tahoe National Forest during fire season, but toss in an arsonist with revenge in mind and those men and women firefighters are standing on the threshold of hell.
To be honest, I went in to this thinking it'd be one of those books with a thin plot, nothing more than a backdrop for sex. You know the type - 6 pages devoted to sex, then a page devoted to plot, rinse and repeat. That's what I expected...
I was so very wrong!
This is an exciting, poignant, sexy romance with a fast-paced, intense mystery plot. From chapter to chapter I was trying to figure out who the arsonist was and what their motives could be, and just when I was sure it was suspect #1, another person of interest would come along and then I'd be sure it was suspect #2! Or #3... I was never positive who it could be until it was proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt.
The bottom line - Wild Heat is my kind of book and if you're like me and want a solid story with your romance and steam, and love you some hot, sexy firefighters...then stop what you're doing and listen-up - you must read this book! And if you enjoy listening to audio books, this is a great one. Eva Kaminsky's voice is clear, sultry, and a pleasure to listen to!
Love books. I love to read and love to listen.
Not a struggle at all to listen to. Great Story, solid characters. On to Next
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Maybe my standards are too high but I have mixed feelings about this book. I was bored and annoyed by the first 2 1/2 hours as the heroine consistently (and repetitively) questioned her belief in the hero due to her attraction to him. Once she came to the conclusion that he was trust worthy, albeit a strange revelation without a believable cause, the book finally started to get a bit interesting.
Also, Logan and Maya were conversing about who could be starting these fires while they were fleeing a fire! Not just any fire, but Logan’s home that he built with his hands. His “oh well” attitude and their talking about an investigation while they are trapped within a wall of fire made me say to myself… doesn’t the writer know that people in the middle of a fire aren’t trying to figure out who the culprit is? They just want to survive! And then there was Maya’s investigation; flimsy evidence against Logan? How about no evidence against Logan; it felt like that was the only way to introduce tension for these two lovebirds, yet that missed the boat because Logan was like, “It’s okay if you ruin my career, just so long as I can follow you around while you tell the world I did something I didn’t do just to prove that our brief little sexual interlude six months ago does not stop you from being a professional.” Sorry, but female investigators are much more competent than this.
Eva Kaminsky was good with the delivery of story and the only reason I finished the book.
Audible has been my life saver.
Loved that the story was a who done it too. Not only a great love story but a very good story line.
I want to meet just one of the Hot Shot Firefighter, Bella Andre sure knows how to bring romance I want more more more
sizzling, spitting, steaming
Logan's voice is very convincing and makes him what he is: a testosterone-filled man - quite impressive considering the female speaker....
I certainly laughed a couple of times
♥♥Hooked on Audio Books♥♥
Bella has done it again! Maya and Logan just sizzle!
Logan - definitely could picture one sexy "Hot Shot" member.
