Book Info:

Unemployed schoolteacher Erin Jenkins is back in Portland, the town she hasn’t called home for more than a decade. It’s not the way she wants to spend her last days of summer: in between jobs and avoiding her mother’s snooping by escaping to the ice-cream aisle. But when the opportunity arises for her to accompany her brother’s best friend—her lifetime crush—to a wedding, summer gets a whole lot more interesting.

Firefighter and single dad Jake Bennett has built a nice, safe wall around his heart—no romance, no getting burned. That doesn’t mean he’s ruling out a fling. Considering Erin’s visit is temporary, they’re the perfect fit for a scorching no-strings one-night stand. Or two. Or five. Until the worst thing happens: Erin and Jake are feeling more. Damn that four-letter word.

Now their hearts are on the line, and when their smoldering summer comes to a close, it’s going to be harder than ever to put out the fire.

    Don’t have a favorite.. The hero of the one I’m reading is shaping up pretty good.More Than A Lawman by Anna J. Stewart, a romantic Suspense., There are a awfully lot of really nice hero and heroines out there. The fantasy, Dreaming in Chocolate by Susan Bishop Crispell was pretty good too.

    I’ve been reading books out of my TBR pile and Dark Witch by Nora Roberts was a fantastic read, I can’t wait to read books 2 and 3!
