The number-one New York Times-bestselling author delves into the world of elite firefighters who thrive on danger and adrenaline--men and women who wouldn't know how to live life if it wasn't on the edge.

There's little as thrilling as firefighting--at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are in Rowan's blood: her father is a legend. She's been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home--even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering.

Fortunately, this year's rookie crop is one of the strongest ever--and Gulliver Curry's one of the best. He's also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids' arcade.

Everything is thrown off balance when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year's tragedy. Rowan knows she can't complicate things with Gull--any distractions in the air or on the ground could mean the end--but if she doesn't find someone she can lean on, she may not make it through the summer. . . .

About the Author:

Nora Roberts is the number-one New York Times-bestselling author of more than 190 novels, including The Search, Black Hills, Tribute,, and High Noon. She is also the author of the bestselling futuristic suspense series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 400 million copies of her books in print.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. This searing stand-alone from bestseller Roberts (The Search) celebrates the smoke jumpers of Missoula, Mont., who routinely risk life and limb to beat down raging forest fires. As close knit as any military combat unit, the "Zulies" include veteran Rowan Tripp, haunted by the loss of Jim Brayner, her onetime jump partner who was killed the previous season in a fall, and rookie Gulliver Curry, who soon earns the nickname "Fast Feet" for his speed and prowess. Threatening trouble is cook Dolly Brakeman, Jim's girlfriend, who blames Rowan for his death—and whose new baby may well be Jim's. Rowan and Gull grow closer as the team battles fires from Montana and Idaho to California and Alaska. Meanwhile, the Zulies are plagued by vandalism and sabotage as well as a killer with arson among his crimes. Roberts fans can expect another bestseller. (Apr.)

Book Description Putnam Adult, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there?s also little else as thrilling ? at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan?s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She?s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday. At this point, returning to the wilds of Montana for the season feels like coming home ? even with reminders of the partner she lost last season still lingering in the air. Fortunately, this year?s rookie crop is among the strongest ever ? and Gulliver Curry?s one of the best. He?s also a walking contradiction, a hotshot firefighter with a big vocabulary and a winter job at a kids? arcade. He came to Missoula to follow in the footsteps of Lucas ?Iron Man? Tripp, yet he?s instantly more fascinated by his hero?s daughter. Rowan, as a rule, doesn?t hook up with other smoke jumpers, but Gull is convinced he can change her mind. And damn if he doesn?t make a good case to be an exception to the rule. Everything is thrown off balance, though, when a dark presence lashes out against Rowan, looking to blame someone for last year?s tragedy. Rowan knows she can?t complicate things with Gull ? any distractions in the air or on the ground could be lethal. But if she doesn?t find someone she can lean on when the heat gets intense, her life may go down in flames. Seller Inventory # CBL9780399157448
