Can a series of wildfires lead to true love under a midnight sun? Jon Silva is back as a wildland fire investigator, along with his well-earned reputation as a crack firefighter and notorious serial dater. But things have changed in Jon’s world. Now, there are only two women in his life—the one he wants, and the one who wants him—at any cost. He seeks redemption--also at any cost. Liz Harrington returns to Alaska’s Aurora Crew, fighting wildfire to earn seed money for her new business. She resisted her attraction to Jon last fire season, but this year she's not sure she can quell the smoldering passion that ignites whenever they’re together. Though it's tough, she won’t let her heart be another casualty of the infamous Wildland Wolf. Someone is setting fires on the Kenai Peninsula. When Jon is summoned to investigate and Liz dispatched to fight the blazes, more than the wildlands are heating up. What Jon discovers blows his world apart. And while Liz fights the most catastrophic fire in Alaska’s history, everything she’s worked for may soon go up in flames. As Liz and Jon race against time to find the arsonist before their beloved Alaska turns to ash, they must find a way to overcome the lethal forces determined to keep them apart. Fire is unpredictable, and so is love - but will their second chance at romance be extinguished before it's even lit? Romance, fire, and arson - another deadly mix!

Assessment:

Plot: In a detailed, winding storyline, Liz Harrington doesn’t expect to rekindle a romance that has been over for almost a year when she attends a wedding for a fellow Alaska firefighter. But there is Jon Silva— the man with three failed marriages to his credit — at the mic crooning a love song, and all of the old feeling come back. Later on, as Jon has been promoted to a federal fire inspector, and while Liz fights a series of devastating fires in the Alaska wilderness and Jon tries to figure out who set them, the inevitability of their relationship overcomes their reservations, the unwelcome presence of an ex-wife, and the challenge of Liz’s new role as owner of an exotic dance club in Vegas.

Prose/Style: True to its genre, this novel is vastly rich in descriptions of the setting, the events that transpire, and the protagonists’ reactions.

Originality: In this second book in her Blazing Hearts Wildfire Series, Paige presents an unusual setting for romance and makes Liz, as well as Jon, equal to the task of fighting wildfires, one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Fires and romance smolder in tandem here, both threatening to overcome the lovers. The story is greatly enhanced by Paige’s real-life experience as a wildland firefighter in Montana.

Character Development/Execution: Through Paige’s detailed, explicit description of the protagonist’s thoughts and feelings, the reader gets to know Liz and John so well they feel like family friends.

Blurb: This is no damsel-in-distress romance as wildland firefighter Liz Harrington forges a relationship with fire inspector, and one-time old flame, Jon Silva.
