~REVIEW of Bella Andre's WILD HEAT~

 Wild Heat (Hot Shots: Men of Fire #1)
4 of 5 stars

Maya Jackson has come to Lake Tahoe to clean out her brothers cottage following his suspicious death in a fire. In her words "she was going to find the bastard that killed him and she was going to make him pay." As an arson investigator it's well within Maya's realm of possibilities but she's a little off her game today. Eventually grief proves too much sending Maya to the nearest bar to forget and straight into the arms of the most explosive man she's ever met. Never mind that he's a complete stranger they're doing things on that bar top that she'll be thinking about for the next 6 months.

 As the leader of the elite Tahoe Hotshot crew risking his life fighting wild fires is what gets Logan Cain out of bed every morning. So he's plenty pissed off when following an anonymous phone tip the fire investigator pulls him from the latest inferno and suspends him. Logan's just been accused of lighting the very fires he's been killing himself putting out and the real kicker is the person investigating him is none other than that wild woman from the bar 6 months ago. The very one that he can't seem to get out of his mind or quite forget the taste of on his lips.

Maya's not going to let a little thing like a kiss change how she works this case though, Logan may be the most appealing man she's ever met but that doesn't mean she trusts him any further than she could toss a match. And Logan's never been one to back down from a blaze so if swallowing his pride and working alongside Maya will help find the real arsonist and protect his fellow firefighters then they're just going to be stuck together and neither can deny the heat radiating between them.

As fire levels reach extreme Logan's men are getting injured, someone's trying to kill Maya and the forest is literally going up around them. Together they will battle car bombs, house fires and each other in a bid to find the deadly arsonist.

 You'll want to wash the smell of smoke from your hair and ash from your clothes after this scorching read. WILD HEAT is a well written story full of suspense, action and some excellent love scenes. Maya is a tough heroine and Logan will have you wanting a hotshot of your own plus you'll be smelling pine needles for days afterwards. Cheers.

Look for HOT AS SIN, the next instalment in this scorching new series.


  1. Note to self: From now on, eat at the table never at the bar. And I use to think those round spots on the top of the bar were from sweaty glasses.

  2. Thanks for the visual Rohg!!

    You are a nasty man. Thats why I like you so much!
