Delilah Gordon has a secret. She's been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old. And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it's better this way. She'd rather pretend that they're just friends, even though her feelings for the moody, rugged mountain man are anything but tame. Fox Nelson has a secret too. As a wildland firefighter or "hot shot," Fox heads into danger every day he's on the job.

Absolutely Love this book. Dealing with real life issues and finding yourself in the process. I could only wish they had another one. The narrators brought everything and the writer did justice to the characters. I will re-listen.

Forget playing it safe. John "Maverick" Nelson likes to live his life on the edge - literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick's brash and bold attitude means he's the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk. When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks, and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He'll tell you there's no better way to spend a cold, wintry night.

As the man in charge at Ravenswood Ranch, Shane Nelson has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. His sculpted physique isn't the product of a gym, but of years of hard labor under a relentless sun. His straightforward, alpha tendencies come from a man who knows what he wants and goes after it - and what he wants is Rachel Waters. He's never stopped wanting her. They were childhood best friends, then teenage lovers who evolved into soulmates. But on one fateful night, Shane made a grave mistake, breaking both their hearts in the process. Now, after six years, Rachel is back.

This was a surreal story. Bad boy for the wrong side of town. Unfortunately this writing has more truth then we could ever imagine. The writing was great and the narration was spot one. Well worth the listen and possibly a relisten.

Four years have passed since I left home, my parents, and my brother Asher behind - since I shut out my past. And Erin. Four years since I last saw her, since I heard her voice and held her in my arms. I've spent my time forging a path from woman to woman, from bed to bed, trying to find an answer. But I think I've lost my way. There's no light at the end of the dark. No big surprise. I carry the dark inside me. I'm a bastard - branded as such from the start. I never give my phone number and address. I take my pleasure, and don't come back for seconds. No commitments, no promises.

Ex-SEAL Luke Dawson's new mission in life is fighting fires. When he rescues local bad girl Deelie Olsen from a summer blaze, lust isn't supposed to be part of the equation. Nor is love - but something about the frank, tough-as-nails woman has him throwing caution to the wind. Getting her in bed may be easy, but getting to know her will be a whole lot harder...and the battle for Deelie's heart is one fight he has every intention of winning.

When Navy SEAL Zack Medina comes home to Strong, California for Christmas, he's got more than a firefight on his hands. He needs to convince his estranged wife that 'tis the season to forgive...and that will take a Christmas miracle. Bree lost her heart three years ago to the sexy SEAL, and letting him back into her heart - and her bed - would be a mistake. A really hot, impossibly sweet mistake.

Former SEAL Rio Donovan is 100 percent pure, sensual trouble. Home from the front lines, he has a new mission: fighting fire as a smoke jumper. He won't back down from the flames or a dare and he loves putting it all on the line when he parachutes into the heart of a wildland fire. When the fire camp gets a much-needed new player, however, Rio lands in uncharted territory. The jump team's newest member is sexy, strong - and female.

Quinn Caruthers has several problems: her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon. Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings - or even date - without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend - several years older - from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they're going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man - experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.
