He’s all the heat she’ll ever need.
Lauren Sheridan’s return to Wildcat Bluff after the death of her husband is bittersweet. Thirteen years have passed since she set foot in the place that’s always held her heart…and the sizzling memories of her high school sweetheart.
Kent Duval has it all. A proud rancher and volunteer firefighter in the small town of Wildcat Bluff, he’s missing only one thing from his life: passion. Kent last saw Lauren Sheridan when she was sweet sixteen and they were head-over-heels in love. Now she’s back, spunky daughter in tow, and he no longer knows which way is up. As the heat between them builds, Kent can’t help but wonder if past flames can be rekindled and second chances really do exist.
From Kim Redford: I’m excited to share one of my favorite firefighter characters!
Ladder 49 (2004) celebrates the firefighters of Baltimore, Maryland. In this intense film, Jack Morrison (Joaquin Phoenix) remembers his firefighting career of rescuing people and saving property as he is trapped inside a burning warehouse. Deputy Chief Mike Kennedy (John Travolta) leads the firefighters of Ladder Company 49 who work with Jack as a cohesive unit. As a first responder, Jack puts his life on the line to assist others and make a positive difference for everyone in his community.
He's one hero who inspired my Smokin’ Hot Cowboys series of contemporary cowboy firefighter novels.
