fresh out of the academy, begins her first day at her new station. David took her breath away, of course he would, he was HOT and sexy and calendar worthy. David runs his station as if it were a fine tuned machine. Everyone is expected to perform with perfection. Cindy is
well up to the challenge.
would of been a longer book. The ending was a bit abrupt for me, I think it could of been drawn out more and it would of been more
realistic but other than that I was very impressed with the writing style.
She took us and gave us two very sexy characters, a station full of men that sometimes didn’t know when to stop with the harassing and a woman who was worthy to be called a hero in the fire fighting occupation. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants a short read that will sweep you off your feet with passion and heat.
So, who is Nikki Dee Houston? I’m a businesswoman by day, an erotic romance writer by night, and a lover all the time. I share a modest beach shack on a small island close to the mainland with my very own real-life hero, and our two cats.
I began writing seriously about three years ago, mainly short stories and women’s fiction, but I’d always wanted to write the ‘behind closed doors’ stuff. When I saw all the hype about readers wanting more erotic fiction, I played around with a few stories, finally settling on erotic romance. I believe that a strong romantic element, combined with an interesting storyline, is necessary for good erotic romance. Having said that, I don’t underestimate the expectations of readers for some hot and steamy scenes, and try to deliver on all counts.
Dave runs a tight ship at Hillwood Fire Station. He’s well respected for his leadership style, and how he gets in and works as hard as his team members during emergencies. Although Dave doesn’t enjoy the paperwork side of his job, he gets in and does it by the book.
His crew admire him, both as a boss and as a fellow fire fighter. They like how he knows when to be a relaxed co-worker, and when to be the authoritative Captain. He expects the best from his team, and gets it.
When he first meets Cindy – his first female recruit – he lets her know straight up, that there won’t be any special treatment for her just because she’s a girl. Yet, in every way that he interacts with her, he is himself is guilty of acting differently than he would to the rest of his all-male crew.
Despite his efforts, Cindy captures his attention, and he finds himself watching her a lot more than he does the men. He likes her strength of character and determination. She has a great attitude to her work, and he admires that. Add to that, she’s gorgeous. Try as he might, he can’t stop thinking that. Even in her protective fire gear, hair wet with sweat, and black streaks across her face, she’s gorgeous.
Being a red-blooded man, he’s soon entertaining thoughts of getting to know his new rookie much, much better.
Meet Cindy Reece
After topping the class at the Fire Fighting Academy, Cindy embarks on her career, entering Hillwood Fire Station as their first female rookie. She has every reason to believe she’s going to succeed. She’s confident, fit, fulfilling her dream of becoming a fire fighter, and is determined to show that she is as good as any male fire fighter.
But there’s no getting around the fact she’s a rookie, fresh out of the academy. She knows she lacks experience, but is keen to learn from her colleagues. She doesn’t expect any preferential treatment because she’s a ‘girl’, nor does she mind getting in and doing the dirty work. Her appearance isn’t a priority, but gaining skills and experience is. She works hard to soak up all she can about being a fire fighter in a busy Station.
But there’s no getting around the fact she’s always had a ‘thing’ about male fire fighters, especially ones who work out and are fit and smart. When she realises that the gorgeous, hunky, and sexy fireman calendar pinup guy is none other than her new boss, Captain Dave Johnson, she knows she will have to be on her guard. Her attraction for hot firemen runs deep. She will have to try very hard not to let her private life interfere with her new career.
“I don’t care.” Her words were breathy and soft. With one quick movement, he removed her little T-shirt. He ran his hands up both her bare arms, softly, gently, deliciously, until they reached her shoulders. He inserted a finger under each of the black Lycra straps of her leotard, dragging them aside. He kissed her shoulders and tugged the top down, revealing her breasts, full, voluptuous, and begging to be kissed.
