Publisher's Summary

Master mechanic Denise Conroy - with a reputation for being as steel-clad as the aircraft she keeps aloft - shuns useless flyboys who don't know one end of a wrench from the other. Firehawk pilot Vern Taylor - known for unstoppable charm and a complete lack of mechanical skills - proves his talent for out-of-the-box thinking with every flight. He's a survivor and a natural-born heli-aviation firefighter. When Denise and Vern crash together in the Central American jungle with wildfire on one side and a full-fledged military coup on the other, their newly forged partnership is tested to the max. They have each other, but not even their formidable skills combined can protect Denise and Vern from the conflagration sweeping the jungle...and their hearts.

Critic Reviews

Starred review. "A sure bet for all of his regular fans as well as any deprived military-romance readers who haven't yet found Buchman on their own." ( Booklist)
"The sparks are both literal and figurative in Buchman's fourth Firehawks romantic thriller..." - ( Publishers Weekly)
4 1/2 stars. "With high-octane action sequences throughout, three-dimensional characters to love and another sigh-worthy romance, Hot Point earns a clear Top Pick spot." ( RT Book Reviews)

Misleading summary

The summary mentions how Vern and Denise crash in a Central American jungle amidst forest fires and a coup. I expected most of the book to be set there, but they don't even get to Honduras until the last 2 hours of the book, and the action only starts in the last hour. And worse, some of what transpired is retold after the fact. The rest of the book is interesting enough, but when you're waiting for some real action everything else just seems like they were faffing about. So much unnecessary "I don't deserve you, no I don't deserve YOU" angst in the beginning. Then while I love that she's a mechanic, there are parts that are overly technical and detailed in ways that don't really add much to the overall story.

jock and geek

I really enjoyed this story. I really got into the story, I can't wait until the next book. I am so glad to say that I have discovered a new author. The characters were really endearing.

There is so much not to like

I had to check and make sure this wasn’t written in 1980, first of all. The behaviors, nicknames, cars, even mannerisms all are the kind of “old” that is boring - not retro. There is no story here at all - the “major” conflict comes about 7.5 hours into the book, and is resolved in no time. I honestly wish I’d quit reading a couple of hours in but I wanted to give it a chance since so many others seemed to like it. Please do yourself a favor and just don’t get this book. It’s not exciting, heart wrenching, not interesting, not even delightfully entertaining. I haven’t been this bored by a book since high school summer reading.
