I’ve been asked many times why I seem to have such an affinity for writing about firefighters and smokejumpers. There are several reasons including the fact I adore writing about action characters who live on the very precipice of danger. I also enjoy creating a sense of fear or anxiety with a little mystery and suspense. Romance of course is a key element, but show me a woman who doesn’t crave a dangerous man and… You know what I mean.
In penning the smokejumper series, I took a significant amount of time researching both Missoula Montana as well as the smokejumping profession. The city itself is magical and majestic, probably larger than you might imagine. The town located at the base of several mountain ranges, there are also three significant rivers running through the city. You can imagine the outdoor recreation including all snow related events. The area and portions west have the horrific fires that unfortunately we’ve seen on the news this year. Smokejumpers make certain that fires are kept away from foliage and structures by using chainsaws, axes and other specialty implements, creating trenches or removing portions of a forest to reduce fuel for a fire.
They are elite, hardworking and trained in manners that are much different than your typical firefighter. One major difference is that they don’t use water at all to abate a fire. I try and provide realistic details in every story, while making the words penned on the page entertaining. In my series, the men are passionate as well as dominating in their profession as well as their personal life. They exude sexuality and the women they love are very special indeed. After all, they have to share their men with a love of fire.
A hidden gem inside each book tells a tale that weaves the men together, and not just because of what they do. They also crave being the dominant in a relationship and believe in some rather old fashioned values – men being the head of the household. Now, what happens to the women who don’t obey their rules? Well, a little discipline is in order and often in the terms of a spanking. They belong to a special club they call Burnout. By invitation only, they share stories, ideas and ideals about domestic discipline. They are strong men but every one of them has a daunting past, a dark secret or an invasive desire to make changes in their lives.
But don’t worry. My heroines aren’t meek in any manner. They fight for their professions, their love and family, and are highly opinionated, which leads to some fiery experiences. Missoula Smokejumpers is a true series, weaving over a dozen secondary characters throughout. I think you just might fall in love with Stoker, Landen, Garcia, Riker, Boone, Sawyer and Antonio.
Look for a holiday piece, Embracing the Quiet Night, releasing on December 14th. And don’t worry, the Christmas celebration of love, hope and utter romance can be read as a stand alone.
