#Interview with author, Rachel Brimble, of Saved by the Firefighter

Lexi: We’ve featured our guest before, with her corsets and ribbons. Today though, we get to talk about her firefighters! Welcome to the blog, Rachel Brimble!

It’s great to be back! Thanks for having me ☺

Lexi: From historical romance to contemporary, you have quite the variety of books! And your new release, Saved by the Firefighter is book six in your Templeton Cove series. Book six! Have you done anything to celebrate this book birthday?

I always celebrate a new release with a meal out with my husband and two daughters…including celebratory bubbles, of course. I also treat myself to a new Pandora charm for my precious bracelet – I looked high and low for something related to firefighting but, alas, had to settle for a heart instead.

Lexi: Second chance romances are always worth celebrating. And in Saved by the Firefighter Izzy and Trent have their shot when she has to work with him on a photo shoot. Firefighters at a photo shoot. *sigh* Of course, Izzy wasn’t exactly thrilled to see Trent. What was your favorite part of the photo shoot scene?

Haha!! Well, when they finally surrender to their desire, of course! This was SUCH a fun scene to write – I love how Izzy starts out thinking she’s in control when really it’s Trent all the way. Sexy, sizzling with a touch of humor – my ultimate goal when it comes to love scenes!

Lexi: Izzy and Trent have to work through the loss of Izzy’s brother who was also Trent’s friend. Loss is difficult no matter how it happens. How did you pull the emotions needed to write Izzy’s anger and fear?

This story came to me after I lost my beloved black Labrador, Max in February 2015. I was absolutely devastated and finding it hard to move on. I was desperate for some way to help me to at least start enjoying myself a little. Writing is my passion and so it made sense for me to write a book where I could get all my emotions onto the page. Saved By The Firefighter became my therapy and readers have been so kind with their feedback. It’s definitely the most poignant story in the series so far.

Lexi: Izzy gets a second chance at romance but she also gets a second chance at having a happy life. It helps when you have someone stubborn that won’t let you wallow and fade away. Trent is a hero both in and out of his uniform. What is your favorite thing about Trent?

Oh, there is SO much I love about Trent! He’s kind, caring, strong and patient. All attributes I look for in a man and, thankfully, my husband of 18 years has all of these things in spades ☺

Lexi: Thank you for giving us some glimpses into Izzy and Trent. We love second chance romances! Congratulations on Saved by the Firefighter! We hope to see you again!

How can she forgive him for what he didn't do?

Photographer Izzy Cooper feels as frozen as her pictures. Trent Palmer might be the hottest firefighter in Templeton Cove, but she can never face him again. Not after he failed to save her brother. But when they're forced together by a calendar shoot, the sparks between them are undeniable.

Izzy knows it's not fair to blame Trent for the tragedy, but opening herself up to loss again isn't something she's prepared to do, no matter how determined Trent is to show her that pain is part of life and that love--their love--can make any suffering bearable.
