UP IN FLAMES Heading Your Way

There was when William met Bryn. And when Patrick met Emma. And when Jude met Lucy. But I hadn't heard the story of when Cole met Elle. 

So, since no one else had either, I had to write their story. 

And what a story it turned out to be. Let's just say Rhett and Scarlett faced about as many obstacles as Cole and Elle do, and when it comes to raw chemistry, these two have so much it spills off the pages.

UP IN FLAMES is my latest book scheduled to be releasing at the end of December. As in this month. I can't give you an exact date, but it will be released right around Christmas! So drown yourselves in eggnog, gorge on sugar cookies, buy, wrap, give and unwrap a store's worth of presents . . . when you're all exhausted and ready to curl up with a steamy read, Cole and Elle will be waiting for you. 

This is a New Adult Romance that is three parts sizzle to one part sweet. It's hot. It's hot. It's HOT. My computer-started-smoking-in-certain-parts hot. This isn't Young Adult and is intended for mature readers due to some spicy content and saucy language. 

Oh, yeah. The male character in this one? He's a smokejumper. You know, the ones who parachute out of perfectly good planes to fight forest fires? Sound like a recipe for an appealing alpha male?

Check out the teaser and blurb below and you can start adding it to your TBR on Goodreads now!

One small town girl with a bright future. 
One smokejumper with a dark past. 
One summer that will forever change them both. 
They’re going . . .

Up in flames. 


Elle’s life couldn’t possibly get any more small town than it already is. She was raised in the same home as the two generations before her were, her family owns the iconic downtown cafe, and she’s been dating the pastor’s son since she was allowed to go on her first date at sixteen. 

Cole’s life couldn’t possibly get any larger. He’s tried. Roaming from town to town for the past three summers as a smokejumper, Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots. The only thing he avoids more than that is settling down with one woman, especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to save.

Elle Montgomery’s life is going one way. And Cole Carson’s is going the opposite. There’s no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington. 

But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she’s already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms.

As the summer heats up, and tensions between Elle and Cole run high, he begins to realize there’s more he’s attracted to than Elle’s body, and she discovers there’s a lot more to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eye.
