🔥 Hot for the Fireman by Gina L. Maxwell

One sexy fireman. Three dates. And a whole lot of heat…

A one-night stand is just what Olivia Jones needs to transition back into the dating world after a two-year hiatus. To hell with being prim and proper. It’s not like she’ll ever see him again. For just one night, she’s going to shed her inhibitions and let this sexy-as-hell man bring all her fantasies to life.

When a twist of fate throws Boston firefighter Erik Grady together with the woman who gave him the hottest night of his life, he has only one mission: to charm her into giving him a chance and show her there’s more between them than just the heat they shared in that hotel room.

Helping each other heal from their pasts might be playing with fire, but a desire this strong is worth getting burned.

🔥 Caught by the Fireman: A Steamy Older Man Younger Woman Romance by Mia Madison

“Turn around. I want to watch you.”

Hannah: The first time I meet hot firefighter Kieran Forrest, he catches me half-dressed and yells at me to get out of my room for sleeping through a fire alarm. But my embarrassment doesn’t end there, because now I have to work with him, and his big, powerful body, dark eyes, and hard abs are a major distraction. He’s all man, but I’ve been fooled before and I can’t let myself be taken in again.

Kieran: I’m supposed to work with Hannah Palmer, the girl with the honey-blond hair, the curves to make a man hard and the sassy attitude, on a safety awareness project. Seriously? The one who ignores a fire alarm? But this time, she’s not the one in danger, it’s me. I’m in danger of falling for her hard and I can’t allow that to happen. Not with her, not with anyone … but then, how can I resist?

This is a standalone novella with no cheating, a happy ever after and satisfaction of the dirtiest kind guaranteed — a scorching hot and steamy head-over-heels insta-romance with a feisty, American heroine, a Scottish hero and kilts. Devour it in one go with a fire extinguisher on hand.

🔥 Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley

Derek aka Phoenix is a New York City firefighter and has dedicated his life to saving people.
When he loses two of his men in the line of duty, he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to see the light again.

However, when an angel in the form of a woman named Fia appears before him, his world as he knows it is turned upside down.

Fia has been working hard to make money so she can finish her last semester of school. A fire in her building sets her back to square one, but the fireman who saves her turns out to be more than she ever expected.

Once he gets his arms around her, there’s no letting go. Because when you’ve got your forever in your arms, nothing else matters.

Warning: This is hot and fast insta-love that ignites the pages. It’s burning heat that combusts into an inferno of lava. Okay, that’s all the fire words I could come up with. Now insert a pun about a big hose. It’s quick, dirty, and ridiculously over the top.

🔥 Burn for Me (Fighting Fire Book 1) by Lauren Blakely

She’s the one fire he can’t put out…

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends. Yes, he’s ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren’t for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn’t the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town–his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he’s not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.

🔥 Under Fire (Blue Collar Alpha Males) by Aria Cole

Blaise Michaels has never met a fire he couldn’t tame—or a woman who could cause a five-alarm blaze in his heart.
But the night he meets Brianna Foster is a night that will leave permanent marks on them both.

Brianna Foster wasn’t looking for love—in fact, all she was looking for was her grumpy old cat before the building dissolved into ash around them. But when tall, dark, and heroic bursts through her apartment door to save her—and her kitty—from the flames, she never dreams he would light a fire that could incinerate her soul.

Warning: Blaise is a big, growly, alpha male with a hero complex. Saving Brianna isn’t enough for him. He wants more than just in her bed. He wants her tied to him for life.

Cats and dogs shouldn’t fall in love. Like any wolf, RPD detective Nate Rivera knows this.

Evina Mohajit is aware their flirtation can’t lead to more. Still, she relishes trading banter with the hot werewolf. This hardworking single mom hasn’t felt so female since her twins’ baby daddy left to start his new family. Plus, as a station chief in Resurrection’s Fire Department, she understands the demands of a dangerous job.

Their will-they-or-won’t-they tango could go on forever if it weren’t for the mortal peril the city’s shifter children fall into. To save them, Nate and Evina must team up, a choice that ignites the sparks smoldering between them . . .
